His alias, Autre Ne Veut (which roughly translates to "want no other"), is fixated on one thing. It's a quality that makes his music remarkably intense and sometimes hard to stomach, as his voice wrenches like your gut during a panic attack. He channeled that energy into glitzy pop on 2013's aptly titled Anxiety, a stellar album of tortured torch songs that were written in a bluster of creativity. Age Of Transparency is said to be the second in a trilogy started by Anxiety. Inspired by the marketing ethos where brands seek to portray themselves as human, flaws and all, the album's lyrics deal with self-presentation, internet addiction, social media and, of course, relationships. Ashin claims it's a less personal album, but Transparency is unmistakably a product of his psyche, exploring familiar themes in his inimitably hard-to-parse stream of yelps and howls.
Age of Transparency is his third full-length album, and in many ways it represents a huge step forward for Ashin: its music and themes are more complicated, and he’s never been harder to classify. All of that is admirable, but it hasn’t yielded an album as enjoyable or satisfying to listen to as Ashin’s earlier work. When it comes to his big ideas, it turns out melody makes the best messenger. Ashin’s been lumped into the broad, porous alt-R&B movement - one that includes everyone from Blood Orange and Toro y Moi to How to Dress Well and James Blake - thanks to timing and vocal style, but.
This time, the visuals has been revealed for the LP’s title track. Directed by Allie Avital, the video follows the singer as he dances around an office space filled with occupants who’ve been turned to stone
Autre Ne Veut’s Age of Transparency is an astonishing album. It’s also practically impossible to summarize. Beautiful isn’t the whole story. Ugly couldn’t be further from the truth. Even astonishing doesn’t do this album justice. Age of Transparency is what an R&B album would sound like if it was tearing apart at the seams. It’s beautiful in the same way a melted candle is beautiful. Arthur Ashin has been putting music out under the nom-de-plume Autre Ne Veut since 2010, and it feels like his career has been hurtling toward Age of Transparency. In a way it’s braver and more complete than 2013′s excellentAnxiety, pushing the neurosis, self-mutilation, and paradoxical beauty at the center of that album to its furthest limits. It opens with one of the more remarkable first tracks in recent memory. At the core of On and On (Reprise) is a syrupy, almost maudlin, ballad.
