And here it is. The #1 album of 2013 (IMO, of course).
I am pleased to say that my favorite album this year is from a new “all-in-one” creative musician that goes by the name of Autre Ne Veut. He resides from New York (Go U.S.A.) and literally came out of nowhere this year.
I’ve shared his album with a few friends this year and never received the same feedback on it that I have generously been giving it over the year. In my defense, however, I always say “keep listening.” And in all cases, the recipient comes back to me with altered emotions toward the album. It’s inevitable – this music will grow on you.
For those looking for a description – I’d call this guy this year’s version of Twin Shadow. It’s dancey, electronic, and his falsetto is doused throughout the entire collection of songs. It’s sexy, yet sometimes silly. It’s just…. perfect.
