“There’s such a lot of world to see.”


“Moon River” (Don Philippe version) by Lucia Cadotsch | This album dropped a couple of weeks ago, and the original version of this dropped a few months ago, so I guess it’s not exactly a critical thing that I post this song and call it a spoiler. This is, after all, the last track. And yes, this is another one of those weird but fun records that make their way to my inbox – I really don’t know why I get these, but again, they’re fun. Lucia Cadotsch is based in Zurich Berlin, and last November she released Speak Low, an album of covers only given a very jazzy (in the improvisational sense) undertone. Two weeks ago came Speak Low Renditions, which take the concept of “musical soulmates” further as she pairs up with producers to add yet another layer of unpredictable on the songs. So the familiar becomes unfamiliar again, and yet familiar at the same time. “Moon River” closes the album, but in the hands of Berlin producer Don Philippe the calm starts to jump, and what’s supposed to be a calming end to a very trippy album becomes trippy again. And I did not need a drink to do so. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
