The Trip


Lætitia Sadier’s solo debut, following her wrapping up of the Monade project, was partially a continuation of it due to the inclusion of both Emmanuel Mario and Julien Gasc as well as new collaborators such as the wonderful and too soon departed keyboardist Richard Swift, who along with Mario and Sadier produced the album. Sadier’s performances remain utterly elegant, with standouts including some striking covers such as the suave funk grooves of Les Rita Mitsuoko’s “Un Soir, Un Chien” and the breezy flow of Wendy and Bonnie’s “By the Sea.”
