Just look at the cover for St. Vincent's new self-titled album; it's overblown, turgid and yet incredibly feminine, gracious even, like it could have been used for the next Katy Perry album. With the initial success of 'Marry Me' and with 'Actress' and 'Strange Mercy' doing their bit to help bring Annie Erin Clark to the fore of indie circles, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist has endeared herself as an artist and her triumphant cover status suggest bold ideas and even bolder ambitions. In actual fact, 'St. Vincent' isn't as intrepid or empowering as the cover may suggest; it is, however, yet another solid album from Clark.

Electronic, Breakbeat

The undisputed masters of brain-altering, transcendent electronics return with their first studio album since 2010's 'Further'. Released to coincide with headline slots at Glastonbury, Sonar and Bestival, The Chemical Brothers' eighth studio album - 'Born in the Echoes' - is a magnificent eleven-track collection of lean, propulsive machine driven music. From juddering robotic funk to unhinged futurist Freakbea'; icy spectral psych to rhapsodic analog synthetics; from euphoric spiritual acid to harmonic ambient distortion, the album is the sound of a reinvigorated Chemical Brothers creating some of the most mind-expanding music of their career to date. 'Born in the Echoes' features a stellar cast of collaborators including previous guests Q-Tip ('Go' - a track that is accompanied by a video directed by Michel Gondry) and Ali Love ('EML Ritual') as well as first time visitors to the studio - St. Vincent ('Under Neon Lights'), Cate Le Bon ('Born In The Echoes') and Beck ('Wide Open' - his first new music since his Grammy winning album 'Morning Phase').

Style: Funk, Soul, Nu-Jazz | Label: Hero Records

Retro funk enthusiasts Weekend Sun have teased us with a string of sizzling singles and the like, but it's taken until now for their debut long player, Forever Tomorrow, to drop. It's a colourful affair heavily indebted to the kind of sample-heavy 90s hip-hop that blended 1960s soul, funk and even hip jazz. However, despite the hip-hop influences, this collective of northeast musicians are all about classic songwriting dressed with vintage soul stylings, and this they do very well. Standouts here include the lushly forlorn "Love Remains" and the broken-soul-beat of "Lies".

Vincent Herring is complemented by rising young trumpeter Jeremy Pelt on this enjoyable studio date. "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm" is a standard from the swing era, though the quintet translates it into a hard bop vehicle very well, with the leader throwing in a quick reference to another song ("Kerry Dance") from long ago. Herring is a bit playful in his treatment of the ballad "You Leave Me Breathless," while he handles McCoy Tyner's explosive "Four by Five" with finesse. But most of the session is devoted to originals by the band. Bassist Richie Goods contributed the funky, infectious "Citizen of Zamunda," which showcases the leader on his dancing soprano sax. Pianist Danny Grissert, who evidently made his recording debut with this CD, not only proves himself as a capable soloist, but also penned the exciting "Hopscotch" (marked by its use of stop time) and the tense "Encounters."

Born into a family of griots, Samba Diabat learnt the balafon at a young age before he was introduced him to the art of the guitar and jeli n'goni. He is now one of the most sought-after guitarists on the Malian scene. For the Swiss multi-instrumentalist and world-music specialist Vincent Zanetti, the Malian Mande is his land of adoption.

Hervé Niquet – ici sans son ensemble Le Concert spirituel – réserve aux discophiles curieux une nouvelle découverte musicale, en la personne de François d'Agincourt. Mais qui était donc ce Monsieur d'Agincourt, dont on ne retrouve guère de notices biographiques dans la plupart des encyclopédies dédiées à la musique ? Né en 1684, mort en 1758, il fut la gloire artistique de la ville de Rouen où il tint les orgues de la cathédrale rien moins que cinquante ans, fonctions accaparantes qu'il cumula néanmoins avec celles d'organiste de l'abbaye royale de Saint-Ouen, puis de Saint-Jean de Rouen, tout en étant l'un des musiciens officiels du roi. Sur les grandes et belles orgues Tribuot, Hervé Niquet ressuscite un pan inconnu de notre patrimoine artistique, avec ces Dames de Saint-Jean, auxquelles il insuffle une vitalité et une profondeur de bon aloi.

Label: Naive | Tracks: 22 | 2011

Pour son premier enregistrement en solo chez Naïve, Stéphane Degout, accompagné par Hélène Lucas, choisit le répertoire le plus complexe du point de vue de la langue et des subtilités d’interprétation, celui des mélodies françaises. De Debussy à Ravel en passant par Duparc, Hahn, Chabrier et Saint-Saëns, il aborde des textes se référant souvent au thème de l’amour, dans une juste tonalité mélancolique.

The Prague Philharmonic choir join over a dozen others who have recorded Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil, a work once thought the special property of the Russian choirs who are, of course, prominent in the lists. The Czechs sing it without a cantor, and more as a concert work than some of the others do. Though they take the famous scale in the Nunc dimittis, descending to a profound B flat, in their stride, they are not as sonorous as some others, and their particular contribution is to sing the music lightly and flexibly, with a lively response to the words. They have excellent sopranos, safe in intonation when attacking the exposed high entries in thirds which are a feature of the music, and a good tenor for the three numbers that involve him as a soloist. The Magnificat, with all its tempo changes and shifts of register, is expressively done, as are the light rhythms of ‘Blessed art Thou, O Lord’.

Although the titles to several of the tracks may be the same as those at Broad Chalke, the performance in front of a large audience has a much grander and at times, darker feel, to the previous evening. The difference can be heard almost immediately in the opening track. Whereas, The Apparent Chaos of Stone was a more languorous affair at Broad Chalke, here at Bishop’s Cleeve, Fripp begins to throw some startling curve-balls of pensive guitar after only a few minutes. Given the slow silky tones that makes up much of the opening piece it can be easy to miss some of the detailed interplay that occurs between the two players.
