Distinctions Pitchfork: Best New Music
Back to the homeland for FKA twigs, who returned to her native Gloucestershire valleys for this second album “written from the heart”. “When in doubt, I just follow my gut and try to be around nature, go back to the Cotswolds.” Indeed, this is the storyline of the video for Home With You, where the former dancer leaves an overheated club charged with pheromones, and goes to a cottage to rest and recuperate, contrasting the purity of the countryside with the Gomorrah that is London. This introspective time in the singer’s life led her to take an interest in the story of Mary Magdalene, hence the name of the album, notably the way in which the history books have manipulated the story of Jesus’ companion. Musically, FKA twigs stays true to the “post-R&B” style, with her voice remaining the main attraction for an album which features production from Skrillex, Nicolas Jaar and Noah Goldstein (Drake, Teyana Taylor, Bon Iver…) and a feature from rapper Future on Holy Terrain. From her electro chapel, FKA twigs, sounding increasingly Björk-esque, continues to defy the norms of pop music (especially on the deconstructed Fallen Alien, the most experimental track on the album) and sighs into our ears, like a private concert from the confessional. Amen. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Distinctions Pitchfork: Best New Music
In 2015, with his triple album aptly named The Epic, Kamasi Washington became, at over 34 years old, the new heartthrob of the jazz scene, even transcending its boundaries. It must be said that in parallel to his purely jazz works, the Californian saxophonist did a series of freelance works for artists as diverse as Kendrick Lamar (To Pimp a Butterfly and Damn), Flying Lotus (You’re Dead!), Thundercat (The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam), Run The Jewels (Run The Jewels 3) or even Ryan Adams (Gold). And since The Epic was released on Brainfeeder, the electro label created by Flying Lotus, all the elements were in place to make the man and his music even more atypical…. Here, this is yet again a “not really jazz” record label that welcomes him, Young Turks Records, a subdivision of XL Recordings where you’ll find The XX as well as FKA Twigs, Sampha and SBTRKT. A rather short opus (barely more than 30 minutes), Harmony Of Difference actually offers music that is mainly composed for a multimedia body of work presented at the Whitney Museum in New York, notably paintings by the saxophonist’s sister, Amani Washington, and a short film from the Spanish director AG Rojas. We arrive at a result rather in the spirit of The Epic. Kamasi Washington mixes energy and spirituality with the virtuosity for which he is known, his breath awakening the ghost of Gato Barbieri as well as the one of Pharoah Sanders. Also present is his capacity to stack the layers, whether percussive, blowing or harmonic, without ever being indigestible. On the contrary, the passion as well as the tsunami of emotions that emerge from Harmony Of Difference will even be able to reach an audience usually unreceptive to the jazz idiom… © MZ/Qobuz
