highlights is a rocking meditation on black woman hair and deserves to be an anthem imo

every week a different do / alter ego who is who / every single euro too / riches to rags, a bitch's brew / now i could teach a drag or two / i woke up like this, cause all you need is glue / ratchet on my morning tomb / ain't got no style, I'm nobody / I'm nobody, I'm nobody

No home, no phone, no car, no bed / No home, no phone, no car, no bed / But sometimes I'm Judy, Penelope / Or Sandy on a Sunday / Cassandra on a Monday / Matongé is my home stay

I haven't had a chance to play this yet but her debut EP from 2017 is one of my favourite releases ever, incredible-sounding stuff.

Not feeling “Highlights” all that much, but “Paténipat” is great.

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 13 February 2019 20:44 (two years ago) link

If you pair this up with the first EP you have a spectacular album, I think I prefer the songs on the first but I love her voice and how she uses it on this a bit more

boxedjoy, Friday, 22 February 2019 08:48 (two years ago) link

I've blasted this EP all week.

oh didnt realise she had a thread, posted on her labels ilx

great ep, love the final track especially

nxd, Friday, 22 February 2019 11:36 (two years ago) link

Two thirds of this EP is completely sublime.

Matt DC, Friday, 22 February 2019 12:52 (two years ago) link

Which part do you reckon isnt?

boxedjoy, Friday, 22 February 2019 13:39 (two years ago) link

'High Lights' and 'BBC' are several levels below the rest of it IMO.

Matt DC, Friday, 22 February 2019 14:20 (two years ago) link

I love songs about hair, sorry.

I need to check this out, "1,618" from a year or two back might be the best thing Spotify has ever algorithmically nudged at me.

Michael Jones, Friday, 22 February 2019 15:09 (two years ago) link

Is her first EP the Wwwater EP or is it under her own name? Caught the end of Wwwater’s set supporting You g Fathers last year, sounded interesting.

michaellambert, Friday, 22 February 2019 18:47 (two years ago) link

There's one under her own name thats self-titled. 1,618 is on that.

boxedjoy, Friday, 22 February 2019 18:54 (two years ago) link

Ok, will look out for it.

michaellambert, Friday, 22 February 2019 18:56 (two years ago) link

Love this one. Patenipat, Cursed and Cussed and Okashi are my favorites of this one. I think I like the past EP better but I don’t think there’s a song on these 2 eps that I dislike.

eleven months pass...

bumping this because lots of folk who enjoyed her tracks placing in the 2020 ballot probably should listen to the first EP which I still reckon is better

boxedjoy, Thursday, 30 January 2020 21:27 (one year ago) link

earworm of all earworms
had the final track off the ep in my head for about two months after having a seizure last may

my track of the year #2 vote

Patenipat gets played a lot at Hot Mess a lot, which a *certain person* should know.

Good taste, bit Victorian but who isn't? (jed_), Friday, 31 January 2020 00:21 (one year ago) link

Lots of lots obv.

yes a certain person is still raging that Hot Mess always falls on a bad weekend for them and has yet to hear any of this in the wild

boxedjoy, Friday, 31 January 2020 07:13 (one year ago) link

Saw the live show a few months ago and it was the best thing I saw all year.

Chewshabadoo, Friday, 31 January 2020 09:25 (one year ago) link

Highlights is my favorite by far. Would've been high up my ballot (top 3 for sure) had I voted this year.

Just remembered there is a live vid of a new track:

Totally obsessed with Best Thing on the Belgica soundtrack

nathom, Thursday, 6 February 2020 16:26 (one year ago) link

Obsessed doesnt explain it well. Been playing on repeat for hours. It’s by the soulwax guys. Film is awesome too.

great interview

It is my duty to point out to all of you even remotely interested in Charlotte Adigéry that since a couple of weeks she's got her own weekly, two hour radioshow at Belgian StuBru. And my, does it bang! Her track selection is crazy good imo. Best thing is, she collects all the tunes she plays in this spotify playlist, updated weekly after the new show.

A Scampo Darkly (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 15 February 2021 12:01 (two months ago) link

excellent! i like that she has 'blue pedro' on her playlist, i am all aboard with that

would a nit be nice? (NickB), Monday, 15 February 2021 12:13 (two months ago) link

charlotte post to ilx

imago, Monday, 15 February 2021 12:52 (two months ago) link

not only 'blue pedro' but 'shades' (my sadly-elsewhere-ignored #2 of 2020) and a load of other great stuff! tbf you only had to hear her EP to work out what a broad and careful listener she is

imago, Monday, 15 February 2021 12:56 (two months ago) link

Yeah, she's brilliant, and a great companion as a dj. Probably the only linear radio time slot I follow religiously rn, every Sunday eve, she's the best.

A Scampo Darkly (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 15 February 2021 13:31 (two months ago) link

Are the shows available on a listen-again stream anywhere? I tried and failed to find them on the website.

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 15 February 2021 21:17 (two months ago) link

Seems the latest show is linked here, but I don't know if it's geo-restricted for you, or if it stays there for long (there's only one afaic)

A Scampo Darkly (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 16 February 2021 07:56 (two months ago) link

Thanks!

Chewshabadoo, Tuesday, 16 February 2021 10:42 (two months ago) link

Unsurprisingly she has great taste

revived the Old School Afropop thread because of this

not sure if we've discussed it, but her one-track guided meditation album is interesting

this is great, she's getting so good at counterpoint

imago, Wednesday, 17 March 2021 21:16 (one month ago) link

that string part completely makes it

Happy St. Patenipatrick's day!

one month passes...

Has her Studio Brussels show finished? The playlist's not been updated for a few weeks now

groovypanda, Tuesday, 27 April 2021 14:03 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, seems like the last one was March 28, according to www.stubru.be. Too bad, I was really enjoying catching up with those every Monday.
