The 5 albums of Friday November 4 to listen to urgently!

Here is the selection of the best records of the week proposed by Les Inrockuptibles :

Daniel Avery Ultra Truth (Phantasy Sound/PIAS)


Designed with Ghost Culture and Manni Dee producing, featuring HAAi, Sherelle, Marie Davidson or Kelly Lee Owens, Ultra Truth is an immersion in the most physical of techno, at the very heart of rave. As Avery states: “It’s an intentionally heavy and dense album. A distorted dream record: restless, determined and alive.”

EggS A Glitter Year (Howlin’ Banana/Modulor)

We had to wait to discover this first EggS album, between an EP released three years ago (A Certain Smile), then two others,Life During Wartime(May 2020) andAn Unexpected Christmas Gift(December 2020). A long wait which will have nourished the complexity and elegance of the compositions, and seen Camille and Margaux, from the group En Attendant Ana, inflate the ranks of the Parisian formation.

MorMor semblance (Don’t Guess/Semblance)

Sometimes summoning the ethereal folk and falsetto of Moses Sumney or a British version of the music of Blood Orange – for this mixture of pop art, ambient, R’n’B and postpunk –, semblance is above all an opportunity to witness the insolent talent of its author.

phoenix Alpha Zulu (Loyalty/Glassnote/ A+LSO/Sony Music)

“They are always different, they are always the same”(“they’re always different, they’re always the same”), summarized John Peel about The Fall. And it’s exactly the same feeling you get when listening to the ten tracks ofAlpha Zulu,with the impression of already knowing them by heart so much their melodic obviousness, coupled with a vocal familiarity, makes sense.
