by Khruangbin & Leon Bridges
Le meilleur groupe texan du moment collabore le temps d’un EP avec le chanteur Leon Bridges. Le résultat est un éblouissement, entre folk-country vaporeux à la Khruangbin et soul lumineuse. L’une des plus belles sorties pop en 2020, à notre humble avis !
If you've caught either Khruangbin or Leon Bridges live before, or indeed listened to anything by either band or producer-singer-songwriter, you'll know where this 20-minute EP is heading. The sleeve art, which gives more than a nod to the 1960s hippy movement, also offers a major clue.
Tripped out, smoked out, lackadaisical, bliss-infused overtures, honied and syrupy, easing you in so far that you don't quite realise how hard it is to crawl back out of the sugar-coated opiate haze. A collection of heady, hallucinogenic work for 21st Century high plains drifters, it's jazzy, psychy, lush soulful fare you'll be wanting to hear again and again, capturing the heat and slow pace of America's southern states with heartfelt songwriting from genuine masters. The result is something very special indeed.
