Regardless of whatever technical hitches that have bedevilled us these last few days, the new Benjamin Schoos full length is on our radar and due for critical adoration in a day or two. As the title ‘Professor Chanteur (best of)’ might rightly hint, it’s not a new album as such but more a select gathering of the finest moments to have graced his last three albums. For now, serving as teaser taster here’s the breathless pulse racing surge of the fuse burning cinematic shimmer of ‘Visiter La Lune’. Embraced by his typically trademark chic and charismatic cool, the emotional response setting pitched to maximum, this bitter sweetly haloed gem glides with a mercurial pop symmetry that’s galvanised and sugar rushed upon an epic and atmospherically soaring underpin whose fixed eye glare sours with a forlorn crush. Assez magnifique.
