4.0 excellentBedex | July 8th 20

Instant crush on this album. I think I need to do a full discog run after all. This one is resolutely more modern (duh), with crystalline production and more complex/multi-layered instrumentation. There are influences from lots of other genres, and the album moves a bit away from the 'popular Malian folk' vibe for lack of a better term, except on 4 which resolutely evokes her prior discog in a nice way. From the get-go with 1 and its fun start with so much going on you know this will be a different beast of a record. 2 continues this trend, and 3 is incredibly dancy. As I said 4 is more folk and is quite calm which shows intelligent sequencing. 5 echoes a lot to the 80s and to disco years with its synths and chorus, and honestly it is so fun it might be my fave track here. 6 is so fun, 7 is so groovy, that 8 feels a bit less flavourful in comparison albeit still nice. The piano coming in near the end is an especially nice touch. Finally, the closing track very smartly goes back to a more subdued style with a superb tone, and it firmly bumps this about half a point to a solid 4.2
