Raymond Stewart Neneh Cherry excels at making art from elements of music that constantly perk my ears because on their face, they don't conform to my own preconceived notions of music. Perhaps it's the long line of powerful female vocalists that have over the years biased me against other vocalists with limited range. With Neneh, dwelling on her voice is very much a case of missing the forest for the trees. Her music is warm, dense, articulate and bright and so I put aside my bias and just enjoy the ride.

Legendary Tone I had high hopes for this album as I'm a big fan of both Neneh Cherry and Kieran Hebden and it does grow on you with a few listens but overall its just too pedestrian with Neneh's vocals so high in the mix that they sound separated from the music. Favorite track: Kong.

Andrew Jervis Conscious lyrics, dialed-in tunes (c/o Four Tet), and Neneh's fierce stance. Ms. Cherry rules, always has. Favorite track: Kong.

about

Following the release of her first earth-quaking single in 4 years at the beginning of August, counter-culture pop icon Neneh Cherry announces her fifth solo album Broken Politics, produced in its entirety by Four Tet.

Continuing her blurring and conflation of the personal and the political, the second single Shot Gun Shack tackles the link between violence and deprivation using poetic logic. The track deals with the ever-present and always-global issue of gun violence in society. The track's name was the result of inspiration that sprung from a half-remembered conversation Cherry had at the funeral of late jazz great Ornette Coleman.

Broken Politics pointedly asks the question; how do we conduct ourselves in extraordinary times? In an era where the signal-to-noise ratio is more uneven than ever, what are the measures we must take to retain and remember our own personhood? It searches for answers, patiently and with great care, and with a fearlessness to acknowledge that sometimes the answers don't even exist. It’s a record that’s equal parts angry, thoughtful, melancholy, and emboldening, as Cherry and her collaborators continue to expand her ever-widening sonic palette to craft truly singular and potent music.
