Sometimes when you get to the end of an album you don’t know what to put on next. On her third record, Mina Tindle helps us out by ending on a piece by Lhasa: Is Anything Wrong. After Sister, listening to Lhasa seems like a logical next step. And Mina Tindle before Lhasa? Brilliant! Like Lhasa, she sings in a folk-pop style with her own delicate grace. And like Lhasa, who lived in Quebec and came from Mexico, Mina Tindle is pretty bohemian. She spends her time between France, Berlin and America (she’s married to Bryce Dessner, The National’s lead singer). The songs on Sister are ecstatic and full. They’re seemingly simple: a touch of piano, drums and electronic sounds and lots of singing. The vocal work is really impressive. The polyphonies puff out like a sail as they drift towards the horizon. We even find Sufjan Stevens’ voice at the end of Give A Little Love, who could have learnt a thing or two about simplicity on his latest album. Despite their contemporary folk exterior, these songs have soul at their cores. Uplifting and almost holy, they cocoon you like a warm blanket. Though the question still remains: what do you listen to after Lhasa?! © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

In 2016 Justin Vernon a.k.a. Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner from The National launched a collective named People. The project’s goal is to create an independent space where artists can work and collaborate in a spontaneous manner, without constraints. The album Big Red Machine directly comes from this initiative, even though it started a long time ago. Ten years ago, Dessner sent Vernon a small audio file tweaked with instrumental sounds, as a joke. But after due reflection, his partner became much more interested. From this creative drive came Big Red Machine in 2018. This work made in the April Base studio is a surprising blend of indie rock, psychedelic electro and digital soul. A dozen thematic songs striving for a sensory search and leaving room for the imagination. Big Red Machine is the embodiment of independent music experimenting throughout the creation process. A potpourri neither spectacular nor perfect, but undeniably interesting for its research phase. With mellow beats right from the start (Deep Green), a delicate and sensual auto-tune on Vernon’s voice (Gratitude) and poetic lyrics, this multi-layered album goes through a multitude of phases, and tickles all kinds of genres and sounds. A very promising first creation from the People label! © Anna Coluthe/Qobuz

Bryce Dessner is known as one of the members of the Cincinnatti, Ohio-based indie rock band The National. Formed in 1999, The National were impressive from their very first performances, releasing albums to immediate critical acclaim while gradually gaining commercial success and numerous awards. The album High Violet reached number three on the US Billboard 200 in 2010. But Dessner has another career as a classical musician (orchestra, chamber music and vocal compositions) and has done for about fifteen years. He has worked with many institutions such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, Kronos Quartet and the Barbican Centre, among others. He has also collaborated with the leading names in contemporary music, whether Philip Glass, Steve Reich or Ryuichi Sakamoto (on the soundtrack of the film The Revenant ). For this classical project, Bryce Dessner responded to a proposal from Australian institutions, with the Sydney Dance Company and, performing the music, the Australian String Quartet. This is how this new work, Impermanence / Disintegration was born. The title, the theme and the dramatic tone of this play all refer in a strange way to the situation of an entire planet at a standstill and in the grip of an exceptional pandemic. The nine tracks that make up this album thus chime with the fragility, the struggle and the incessant rhythm of the impermanence that constitutes life itself. The influence of the mentors of repetitive music, Glass and Reich, can of course be felt here - how can one not think of them on the very beautiful Pulsing? But it falls to Dessner to weave together the links, and to develop the material while appropriating it. From the introduction, on Alarms, he shows a real talent and great mastery, handling a tenuous rhythm, a strict tempo that accommodates occasional ruptures and flights of fancy. Through these nine pieces, we feel all the urgency and beauty of the disaster. The Australian String Quartet, with Dale Barltrop on first violin, Francesca Hiew on second violin, Stephen King on viola and Rachael Tobin on cello, perform his compositions with great virtuosity. Note on the last track, Another World, the presence of singer Anohni, formerly known as Antony Hegarty (now a woman), the former leader of Antony & the Johnsons, who also writes the lyrics. Combining music with performance, a premiere of Impermanence took place, after a cancellation, in February 2021 in Sydney. To give an idea, a video just over three minutes long, for the song Impermanence, was shot and is available on YouTube, featuring dancers Mia Thompson and Riley Fitzgerald from the Sydney Dance Company, choreographed by Rafael Bonachela. The bodies embrace and disengage. A piece of graphic originality thought up by the director, Clemens Habicht, the two bodies are seen against a grey background, and in certain shots their arms disappear into the background, echoing amputated antique statues such as the Venus de Milo. This gives the project its drama, the fragility of these cut-out bodies combining perfectly with the sinuous melody of the violins. The nine-track, forty-minute album was released on the 37do3d label, created by the Dessner brothers and Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver. © Yan Céh/Qobuz
