The Real Tuesday Weld - Return Of The Clerkenwell Kid

The Real Tuesday Weld - "Return Of The Clerkenwell Kid"
(Six Degrees)

LA révélation pop de l'année!
Stephen Coates alias The Real Tuesday Weld nous avait déjà bien giflé en 2004 avec son mini-tube "Bathtime In Clerkenwell" (voir la vidéo Quicktime) extrait du splendide "I, Lucifer", et ce nouvel album met la barre encore plus haut. Cette fois des sommets Beatles-iens sont atteints, aggrémentés de leur sauce jazz et de ses baies electronica. Je m'explique: sur un swing on ne peut plus jazzy s'entrelacent des glitches, claviers et autres effets trip-hopisants que n'auraient pas nié les Boards Of Canada (par exemple), ainsi que des choeurs angéliques, de vieux samples de films français ("L'amour et la mort"), et un chant bien anglais, entre Edwyn Collins, les Tindersticks et I Am Kloot.
The love album of the year!! Et puisque rien ne parle mieux de la musique que la musique elle-même :
