One of the albums I have listened a lot to and loved recently, is the new album from Chantal Acda, ‘The Sparkle In Our Flaws’ – a title that is just as beautiful as the album itself. The artwork for the cover is also amazing. This is music perfect for an autumn evening, – calm, beautiful melodies, mostly acoustic, interesting arrangements, a bit melancholic. I feel a lot when I listen to this, and I guess that is a good measure of the quality of this music.
Chantal Acda has an impressive list of collaborators, all on my list of favourite musicians: Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick, Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid, A Winged Victory For The Sullen), Valgeir Sigurdsson, Heather Woods Broderick and several others.
Have a look and listen to her fresh new video, and a song from Soundcloud below. Her album is available now.
The album is also on Spotify.
