Blank Project

Blank Project by Neneh Cherry
Released: Feb 2014
Label: Smalltown Supersound
Two years after she teamed up with a Scandinavian free-jazz trio to record covers of Suicide and The Stooges, Neneh Cherry reinvents herself yet again. Over a sparse, gritty-yet-atmospheric funk backdrop laid down by synths-and-drums duo RocketNumberNine (and produced by Four Tet), Cherry reflects on marriage and motherhood, salad days and bills to pay, walking a tightrope between journal-entry plain-spokenness and meditative reverie. Cherry's hushed voice contributes to the record's intimacy; recorded in just five days, it brims with spontaneity and first-thought-best-thought inspiration.
