Autre Ne Veut - 'Anxiety'

One of the sexiest and most luxurious albums of the year so far

Brooklyn producer Arthur Ashin’s second album takes us on a journey through his innermost fears and desires. ‘Anxiety’ moves between smooth grooves and kaleidoscopic electronics, but it’s the sensual vocals that carry the record – whether it’s the rich caress on ‘Counting’, the slow whisper set against the hi-hats on ‘A Lie’, or the intense euphoria of ‘Ego Free Sex Free’. Many a late-night chat will take place about whether this should be called alt.R&B, indie R&B or plain old ambient electronica, but there’s no debate about it being one of the sexiest and most luxurious albums of the year so far.
