Autre Ne Veut – Autre Ne Veut
(Olde English Spelling Bee, 2010)
Autre Ne Veut translates to ‘I want no other’ and is a one-man act from Brooklyn who still remains in the shadows of obscurity. Choosing anonymity over publicity, his music speaks for itself. The danceable alternative to How To Dress Well, his first full length is electronic/synthpop with R&B leanings like Love Remains, but what makes this release different is that the vocals are not hiding beneath lo-fi production. Some of these songs would be just as comfortable on a Prince or D’Angelo album as they would on a Games or Julian Lynch album. Just don’t give up on the 3rd song, “Wake Up”, it’s by far the worst song on the album and you will be rewarded by powering through it.
