Soul - Released April 3, 2020 | Brainfeeder

Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama
His 2017 celebration, the smooth and funky Drunk should not obscure the fact that Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat had already been working his bass for quite a few years before then. The lit, unfiltered Californian has long been freelancing but also playing with Suicidal Tendencies, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus and Kamasi Washington since the early 2000s. Always at home nestled between the seventies jazz fusion of George Duke & Co. and the wild funk of George Clinton's P-Funk galaxy to which he lends exuberance and a pop vision, on It Is What It Is Thundercat pursues his pluralistic goove orgies, smoky soul flirting with jazz rock and light funk. Still with Brainfeeder, the Flying Lotus label that makes an appearance on Dragonball Durag, with this fourth solo album he unfurls his true-false nonchalance baked together with chloroformed groove and afro-futurism. As so often with this fan of Kenshiro and Mortal Kombat, the compositions do not always take the form of traditional songs. As in a dream, realistic passages are overpowered by the surreal. And his high-pitched voice amplifies this improbable hedonistic feel... This time, Thundercat has invited Steve Arrington's seventies funk band Slave and Steve Lacy of The Internet for a sensual ballad (Black Qualls); Lil B and Ty Dolla $ign for a touching tribute to Mac Miller (Fair Chance ); not to mention Childish Gambino, drummer Louis Cole and comedian Zack Fox. We still feel the powerful influence of George Duke (one of his idols whose For Love (I Come Your Friend) he covered his 2011 album The Golden Age of Apocalypse ) as well as that of Californian soft rock on this endearing album which is soothing like a bubble bath... © Marc Zisman/ Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason - 4F de Télérama
After a double album dedicated to Boccherini and acclaimed by critics, Ophélie Gaillard and the Pulcinella Orchestra reveal the incredible sound palette of Vivaldi, one of the most brilliant venetian musicians. Drawing on the finest cello works of the composer, Ophélie Gaillard’s selection places great emphasis on the concerto, for one, two or even four performers. It also includes an exclusive reconstruction of the Concerto RV 788. The vocal interventions of Lucile Richardot and Delphine Galou light up the program like rays of sun through the clouds. The album alternates between moments of great emotion, sometimes even dolorous as in the Largo of the Concerto RV 416, and moments of passion and frenzy (in the Concertos RV 419 or RV 409) that evoke "The Summer" from The Four Seasons. This music thus unveils all its mysteries in the interplay of lights and shadows, giving its name to this recording. © Aparté

"Artists must grow to stay relevant" is a dictum Maria McKee has always taken to heart, never more so than in her brave, sweeping, operatic new album that chronicles her spiritual journey to "a new life." Most famous as the lead singer of the LA country rock band Lone Justice, McKee embraces her interest in the occult and comes out as "a pansexual, polyamorous, gender fluid dyke." McKee recently moved to London, reinvented her marriage to co-producer Jim Akin, hired a small orchestra and penned this ambitious, mostly successful series of classical-leaning pop arias that wrestle in grandiose lyrical style with making life-altering choices after the age of 50. The key to success here is McKee's never-stronger voice. With her heart obviously committed, this is easily some of the best singing of her entire career; the title track, first single "Effigy of Salt," and "I Never Asked" inspire tour de force vocal performances. Another highlight is the celebration of her new home, "Right Down to the Heart of London," where soaring vocals and dense lyrics that namecheck William Blake make for a folky baroque pop gem. McKee's songwriting—both the words and music—has always been a lesser known aspect of her musical gifts. She has become a master at writing what she can sing best. This also means if there's a flaw to La Vita Nuova, it's that these arrangements can sound too similar. Unchanging tempos and a paucity of percussion add to the sameness. Musical wobblings aside, McKee's faith and ardent, absolutely gorgeous singing gives wings to this devotional voyage: "And I have allowed my mind / autonomy to wanderingly stray/ Into fanaticism of a daring kind /And therefore never will I find it strange ("Page of Cups")." © Robert Baird / Qobuz

Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama - Pitchfork: Best New Music
Elpadaro F. Thedford aka Jay Electronica aka the legend without an album! Without a real album, anyway. At 43, the legendary New Orleans producer who has crossed paths with the whole world of rap (Jay - Z, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Mos Def, J. Cole, Mac Miller, J Dilla, Big Sean, Chance the Rapper, Talib Kweli, Vince Staples, Common, DJ Premier...) has decided to release the first album stamped with his illustrious nickname. His moniker could have even featured next to Jay-Z's, as he is an uncredited contributor to eight of the ten tracks on A Written Testimony! A heavyweight accomplice for a heavyweight record; but one with great finesse. An ultra-talented rapper who has cooked up a hearty mille-feuilles of mystical sounds and themes. Even if the general mood is often laid back, everything is thought out. It’s all calculated to the millimetre: from its ideas (including those of the Nation of Islam's controversial Louis Farrakhan whose voice features on the first track); to its values (nods to the hip-hop tradition as on Shiny Suit Theory which uses the same sample as Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth put in their I Got a Love); the choice of guest appearances (Travis Scott on The Blinding and The-Dream on Shiny Suit Theory); and its creative potential (amazing trip-experimental ambient on Ezekiel's Wheel sampling Evensong by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno). Erykah Badu's ex clicked very well with Jay-Z (who sometimes takes the helm here) to create an opus that sounds almost more early 2000s than 2020... © Marc Zisman / Qobuz
