Yann Tiersen, 'Dust Lane' (ANTI-)

7
Dust Lane
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 12, 2010
Label: Anti-

by Jon Young

Sporting a résumé that includes film scores (Amélie) and collaborations with Cocteau Twin Elizabeth Fraser and rapper Sage Francis, French composer-instrumentalist Yann Tiersen resists easy categorization. His gently intoxicating sixth studio album casts throbbing anger and raging lust into a dreamlike haze of shadowy voices, acoustic guitars, and analog synths. Tiersen best displays his artful ingenuity on the title track, which subtly champions a loss of control, and "Fuck Me," a sweet-sounding reverie that suggests ABBA gone horribly, intriguingly wrong.
