What does it sound like?:
Fourth album (I think) from the Belgian jazz-noir exponent.
More Nina Simone-impacted to these ears – especially on the title track – but still maintaining a distinct low-fi electronica element.
As with No Deal, the album maintains a consistent flow throughout, drawing the listener in, and bringing out more nuances with further listenings.
Also includes a smoky cover of Afro Blu(e), the one “made famous” by Coltrane.
What does it all *mean*?
Ms De Biaisio certainly knows how to mine a rich and rewarding seam of sounds.
Not sure as to lyrical depths, but hoping that @tiggerlion can provide proper/further insights.
Goes well with…
(For my listens to date):
– nothing else, so complete focus
– a late-night degustif
– closing one’s eyes and wallowing in its mood(s)

Other MdeB albums, Nina Simone at her most mellow, good music.
