I love Neneh Cherry.
Do you think Eagle-Eye ever got over the fact he's the least talented Cherry by a long, long way?
Proper enjoying the Blank Project album. I haven't listened to her since, errr... ever if I'm honest. It's a lot sparse than I was expecting and she's got a really strong voice. Great lyrics too.
In the same boat, I'm sure I'll lose a bucketload of indie points for this but the only Cherry I was really aware of was Eagle Eye, because of Save Tonight.
Guess I'll be investigating Neneh's previous work now.
Great album this.
Had no idea she'd been involved in The Slits, New Age Steppers, Rip Rig & Panic, etc until I read a couple of reviews of this new'un. Based on my one listen to it so far, it's a belter.
The only song she released previously which I've liked is Buffalo Stance (what a song). But Blank Project is easily one of my favourite, if not, my favourite album of 2014 so far.
The lyrics, the vocals, the flawless production and just the general rawness is top notch. Brilliant on vinyl too, you really pick up those extra little sonic details.
But yeah this is a really great record. Pretty unexpected I guess but then I never really paid any attention to anything other than Raw Like Sushi. Maybe its worth revisiting her 90s albums?
I haven't read any reviews yet but I really hope the discourse doesn't focus on Four Tet in the way music journalists tend to with the male producer / female singer dynamic. Particularly when Cherry's voice and writing are so strong.
Was always left of centre and interesting at the very least.
Brown Rice and Organic Music Society are essential.
But picked up her album on the basis of reading something on here, and it's fantastic. One of my favourite releases this year.
Neneh Cherry and The Thing doing versions of The Stooges, Madvillain and Suicide songs in a jazz fashion.
I never realised that The Thing started out as Don Cherry covers band. Nice little circular.
Buffalo Stance pt 2 !!!!
