Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 solo album from the former Stereolab vocalist. Alternating between a riveting caress and an invigorating shake, the songs of SOMETHING SHINES start from the Earth and tilt up towards the sky, before coming back down to the planet again. Taking it all in, SOMETHING SHINES is also an exploration through Debord's La Societe du Spectacle, and how it is still up to US to guide and shape our fate, individually and collectively. Laetitia examines several relevant questions. These thoughts are communicated with delicately textured production, twinkling and shifting with the subtlety of nature. Often sounding like the world outside, whooshing and chirping and clicking in time, placing these concerns in the place where we live, SOMETHING SHINES reflects the lives hanging in the balance between issues, lives that are often too small to see yet contribute to the world as a whole. Even in the face of realities that continue to cripple so many in the name of so few, SOMETHING SHINES consistently elevates itself with lyrical confidence, intimacy, and an arcing musicality that allows it to go to the hearts and minds of every listener.
