Whether she’s operating under her own name or as part of a group, there’s no mistaking Lætitia Sadier’s velvety voice and retro-futuristic aesthetic. In French or English, her enunciation is precise, her politics are leftist, and the synths are analog. If the Source Ensemble feature more group vocals than before, the end result recalls the multi-tracking that characterizes her solo work. In addition to longtime collaborators Emmanuel Mario (drums) and Xavi Munoz (bass), the band’s debut, Finding Me Finding You, features David Thayer (keyboards, flute), Phil M FU (synths, electronics), Mason le Long (guitar), Rob Mazurek (coronet), and a lovely duet with Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor. If liturgical music for atheists is a thing that can actually exist, it lives on this record. KATHY FENNESSY
