"Music for Violin Alone" was recorded in a makeshift studio in an empty house in Le Poujol sur Orb during the first two weeks of the French lockdown. Recorded both as a response to all loss of work due to COVID-19 and a way to be heard again. The pieces on the album are the pieces I’ve come to discover and learn during the two years of maternity leave. Two years of maternity leave have also been two years of creative silence, a search for new approaches, repertoire and ways of playing.

Yeah, yeah, “A Thousand Miles”—that was nearly two decades ago. (And it still bangs.) And if you haven’t been paying attention since, you might be surprised by the elegant and often idiosyncratic folk-pop that Carlton’s been putting out over the years. Produced by Dave Fridmann, who’s worked with bands from Sleater-Kinney to MGMT, the songwriter’s sixth album is full of strange little twists and turns—more Dirty Projectors than Top 40 radio. Take the cavernous title track, backed by gentle synth arpeggios and sampled rainfall, or the psychedelic fuzz of “I Can’t Stay the Same,” an ode to evolution.

Always a beautifully measured and understated performer, the power in her voice still comes when she’s at her rawest and most vulnerable. Taking inspiration from her recent discovery of the wistful 70s Brazilian music of Milton Nascimento together with the sci-fi girl group harmonies and empowerment of Destiny’s Child, her current sound is both delicate and powerful. Lianne La Havas is an award ceremony regular, nominated for the Grammies, the Mercury Music Prize, the Ivor Novello, Brits and MOBOs. An artist known for two albums of the most finely-wrought jazz-influenced neo soul this side of Sade. But now, eight years and two albums after first appearing onto the music scene, La Havas wants us to know the real her.
