For your ears: here are our music reviews of the week

Every week our journalists give you their opinion on three new music releases recently released on QUB musique. To discover…

sweet melancholy


Patrick Watson fans will not be too disoriented with his new proposal, better in the shade. The album offers us seven beautiful songs that, although they benefit from electronic sounds, have the particularity of being quite soft. Is it because the musician lost his old drummer, Robbie Kuster? Still, he would have liked some additional titles with a little more energy. Watson stays on relatively familiar ground here and does it, let’s face it, in a wonderful way. We will certainly not sulk our pleasure. That said, this seventh album of the singer-songwriter’s career leaves us a little unsatisfied with its duration of less than 22 minutes. (Raphael Gendron-Martin)

Dancing with Lydia Kepinski


It’s indie, it’s alternative satirical pop, it’s electro, it’s catchy, sometimes a little unsettling and sometimes it makes you dance, sometimes it makes you think. From, the new work of Lydia Képinski is a bouquet made up of eleven balloons of different colors that you want so much to have close to you as to let them fly to see them float in the wind, from all angles. The talented and unique artist signs the lyrics and music for this album in which she also plays the synthesizer and participates in the programming. To dance, we can rely on coins. From Y vaslaw. The sweetness of oysters seduced by her sweetness and singing the impostor It is very reminiscent of certain beautiful pieces by a certain Ariane Moffatt. A colorful album that addresses the theme of successful identity. (Sarah-Emilie Nault)
