There is no doubt that the musician has seen the pandemic to upset his plans, to him who was to occur on european soil this spring. His album would have had to happen to us more quickly. Fans of the Montreal, whose music has crossed the borders have nevertheless had the four extracts to be put in the tooth waiting for the result.
Bob Dylan, Rough and Rowdy Ways, already appeared
Mine nothing, it was a moment that Bob Dylan had not shared new compositions, the one who gave more in the times and recordings of performances in recent years. The Nobel prize for literature has been resumed during the pandemic by launching three extracts from the album Rough and Rowdy Ways, still hot. Faithful to its habits, the legendary musician has done things his way : the first piece unveiled, Murder Most Foul, inspired by the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and lasts anything from months to 17 minutes…
FouKi and Koriass, Geniuses of grass, already appeared
This is what one might call a good surprise. FouKi and Koriass we were not informed when they have chosen to combine their feathers and their microphones on a full length album, the Geniuses in the grass, arrived without warning a few weeks ago. Between the two friends rappers, the chemistry operates, undeniably, as they manage to combine their universe without distorting it or that it seems to be plated. One is entitled to a joust oratory of high-level, humorous well-felt and beats the formidable producers, QuietMike, Ruffsound and RealMind in mind.

Jordan Officer, Blues vol. 1 / Jazz vol. 1 / Country volume 1, July 17,
Why settle for an album when you can offer three? It is, apparently, what was said to the guitarist and singer Jordan Officer, who will unveil a triptych in blues, jazz and country in July. The idea here was to dive back into his roots and pay homage to the music that inspired it. The while keeping a certain spontaneity and highlighting the complicity that he feeds with his musicians : the three albums have, we are told, was recorded in a day each.
