Neneh Cherry produced by Four Tet: what a contemporary dream team eh? Broken Politics is an album that engages with the dark nonsense-scape we live in, with Neneh’s lyrics and vocal delivery packing a smart punch. Broken Politics, which also features 3D from Massive Attack, is released by Smalltown Supersound.
Neneh Cherry has had a varied career over the years (including a legendary stint living in Pudsey) but to the general public she'll be best remembered for this super-hit from 1989. This picture disc re-issue comes with an extended version and a David Morales mix of 'Kisses in the Wind'. Typically RSD pricey but a nice artefact.
Remix 12” for Out Of Black, one of the tracks from Neneh Cherry’s Blank Project album from earlier this year. The original track features Swedish pop queen Robyn (wow!) as well as Cherry herself, and one of the two remixes here is courtesy of Joe Goddard of Hot Chip / 2 Bears fame. So much talent on one track!
A collaboration between someone who has actually had a hit and a Scandinavian free jazz trio? Surely not… But then Neneh Cherry has never been a straightforward pop star. And said jazzsters The Thing were inspired to form by Cherry’s father, Don Cherry, so actually there is sense here. Either way, this is an inspired collaboration, and the cover of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’ is genuinely sublime.
