Track Of The Day #590: Laetitia Sadier – Release From The Centre of Your Heart

unnamed (5)

Ms Laetitia Sadier is blessed with the kind of voice that were she to read the telephone directory set to a badly played casio we’d still purr with affection. With her new album ‘Something Shines’ for Drag City just released, a new video for the track “Release From The Centre of Your Heart.” has just been unveiled. I’ll be honest in saying that unless you can point me in alternative directions that I’ve never heard Ms Sadier so loose, joyous, carefree and flying – almost as though some hidden weight has been lifted.

“Release From The Centre of Your Heart.”
is you might suspect the point to where ‘Dots and Loops’ was hinting, fluffy, free flowing, lushly adorned, playful and fluffy – oh yes you are reading right. A radiant sun shimmered tropicalia carousel of Bacharach-ian dreaminess albeit with both Lalo Schifrin and Van Dyke Parks re-tweaking the score and all at once sultry, sensual and slinky. Fill your boots for pop perfection like this rarely comes knocking often.
