I Don't Speak French

I Don’t Speak French released a new single last month, which we shouldn’t miss of course. It’s called “Shiny Metal Paper Bills”, and is a soul-funk vibing tune with a dash of T. Rex-glam.

Cosima – “Head In the Clouds” EP

June 25, 2015 at 3:14 pm


Last year I was fascinated by her voice when I wrote about Lilla Milo and presented soul songs that have etched themselves into my mind. Now Cosima Lamberth focuses on her soul career and has released her debut EP “Head In the Clouds” with four songs during June.

I think it’s an exquisite record with tracks that each one has it’s own character and where Cosima gets to show her vocal range as a soul singer. She can be impulsive as in “Still I Know” where she pulls out the last breath of each phrase and delivers them with an inescapable urgency , or she can expose a naked voice without anything that dims the path to your inner emotions as in the longing, neo soul vibing “Come Back”.

The arrangements are also wonderful, filled with jazz drenched harmonies which vary between the dreamy to the slight melancholic. It feels warm, organic and radiates retro vibes as well as a breath of contemporary, creative soul. Listen here to two of the songs from the EP:

Leon Bridges – “Lisa Sawyer”

Leon Bridges

Now I’m going to make a detour to Fort Worth, Texas. I simply have to after having listened to Leon Bridges “Lisa Sawyer”, a fantastic song full of tender soul that would fit right next to one of the great Sam Cooke’s tunes. And that’s probably the best rating I can give to a soul track. Obviously he wrote the song as an ode to his mother. I have also added “Coming Home”, a song with the same retro vibe and a part of his upcoming debut album.
