and Canadian singer/producer Mike Milosh. Comparisons with Sade are
not entirely unwarranted but listen beyond the obvious and there truly
are some cracking tunes here. Laid-back, mellow and soulful in a languid
long-shadowed-summer-Sunday-afternoon kind-of way; undemanding but pure.
The biggest surprise is Mr Milosh's voice. Before I had done a little bit of
research I was quite certain that the voice I was listening to was female.
It's an extraordinary instrument; seamless from its upper falsetto register
down to its lower smooth and sultry tones. Seductive and effortless in equal
measure. I'm quite sure that it's one of the finest new voices on the block.
'Woman' is a wholly leisurely affair. I doubt if anyone broke even the
slightest sweat during the recording of its ten captivating compositions.
If I had to pick a couple of tracks for my desert island mix I'd plumb
for the beautiful harp-embroidered '3 Days' (the most jaunty invention in
the set) with its ethereal supporting vocal harmonies and 'Major Minor Love',
a haunting number a tad redolent of Maxwell at his most lyrical and lush.
Candles lit. Sofa cushions plumped. Decent Burgundy uncorked. Replay.
A Canadian / Danish duo (Mike Milosh / Robert Braun), Rhye offer a gliding take on blue-eyed pop-soul with bossa nove, Bacharach and disco leanings. It will leave you deeply entranced and rather surprised.
"Woman" is impeccably produced and arranged, strings and brass stylishly embroidering glinting, mostly mid-tempo opal-smooth beats. Think the Chic-Steely Dan-Avalon Roxy Bermuda Triangle: are you ready to disappear in there?
Yet all of this would be (nearly) nothing if two further elements would not add an extra twist to the tale of this minimally sleeved record.
Firstly, the lyrics are not typical. Given the musical ingredients, you would expect some schmaltzy gibberish about how your baby is the sunshine of your life and so on and so forth. Not here: the lyrics are indeed about love and sez, but they deploy laconic, effective imagery to convey their transience, implicit disappointment and not so metaphorical cannibalistic nature. The wordanto "3 Days" andf unger" are apt examples of this; when coupled with their elegant backings, they produce an off-beat mix of chic-driven cruelty.
And soon it becomes clear: the whole album is about love's corruption and man's fall from it, a pessimistic parable that very much resemnles life itself. If it sounds too depressing, never mind; the music will soothe all of your hurt.
The music, of course, AND the voice. Mike Milosh is apparently the singer on this project, yet what you hear is so utterly Other that it seems impossible that the owner of this instrument should be burdened by a detail as trivial as gender.Read more ›
It's worth buying for 3 or 4 great tracks, but you might want to mix up your listening experience with something a little different sounding.
