patchwork best of 2021

\\ Albums & EPs

01. El Michels Affair – Yeti Season [Big Crown Records]

Pour ce multi-instrumentiste new-yorkais qui tisse depuis toujours de jolis ponts faits main entre les différentes musiques de notre monde, de la soul au hip-hop en passant par le rock rétro & les musiques traditionnelles…pour ce 3ème album original sur lequel lui & les sien.ne.s viennent de trouver l’alliage parfait, un son à la couleur unique, subtil & précis mais sans fioriture, en parfait équilibre entre le rétro & le moderne, entre l’occident & l’orient…pour ces chansons qui semblent n’avoir pas d’âge ni d’ancrage, prenant leur respiration au-delà des modes & courants qui ne font que circuler, des chansons pleinement imprégnées d’intemporalité, parées pour se frayer un chemin vers l’éternité…
>>> Unathi – Murkit Gem – Last Blast

02. Martina Topley-Bird – Forever I Wait [indépendant]

Pour cette demoiselle londonienne aussi discrète qu’indispensable, coutumière des allées venues entre l’ombre & la lumière, égérie devenue au fil du temps – & de ses désormais 4 albums – figure de proue d’un genre qui tend sans cesse à démontrer qu’il est bien plus que ce à quoi on voulait le cantonner dès son origine, le trip-hop est mort, vive la chanson de notre époque, mélodies éclairées baignées dans une forme sombre aux fondements électroniques…pour cette résurrection donc, qui s’opère autant dans la forme que dans le fond, puisqu’il aura fallu plus de 10 ans & de multiples remaniements pour que cet album voit le jour, la tragique disparition de son unique enfant pesant inévitablement sur l’ensemble du cheminement…une sorte de renaissance donc, pour son autrice comme pour son univers de prédilection, ce genre qui résiste au passé & qu’elle continue de joliment ressusciter pour y ancrer son timbre unique & ses mélodies hantées…
>>> Pure Heart – Wanted – Love

03. Sufjan Stevens & Angelo De Augustine – A Beginner’s Mind [Asthmatic Kitty Records]

Pour cet artiste majeur aux 23 années d’activité, productif touche à tout & feu follet intarissable, déjà responsable de quelques uns des plus grands moments de la chanson de notre siècle…pour ce 14ème long format qui vient justement renouer avec quelques-uns de ces sommets passés, un disque collaboratif comme il les multiplie ces derniers temps, excepté qu’ici les 2 entités font bien davantage que se croiser, elles se fondent mutuellement pour ne faire plus qu’une, comme les voix de ses 2 interprètes, envoûtante volute vocale enveloppant les soyeuses mélodies intimes qui habitent ce disque…un de ceux à placer vers les hauteurs de ses respectifs auteurs…
