Review: The Seshen are an outfit that hail from San Francisco, but are destined for worldwide adulation. Having built up a large following online and through supporting the likes of tUnE-yArDs and Hiatus Kaiyote, the industry came knocking on their door with the genuine soulful vibes of Tru Thoughts winning out. The Unravel EP is the first fruits of this new partnership and it's pretty impressive stuff. There's six tracks in all taking us on a sensual journey of evocative live electronic soul-wave including the shoegazey grind of "Unravel", glistening audio confection "Oblivion" and the warped synthpop of "The Fall.
Review: Marking a year since their evergreen soul album Flames & Figures, Bay Area fusioneers The Seshen revisit the title track with an unreleased instrumental and much needed acapalla that allows us to focus wholly on Lain St Juste's stirring vocals and evocative lyrics. Still as smoky and alluring and otherworldly as it was when it blew our heads off last year, it's now been re-envisioned by rising beat-splicer Naytronix for added cosmic pleasure. Go (flame and) figure.
Review: Hailing from San Francisco's Bay Area, The Seshen, are set to expand on their cult status with this, Flames & Figure, their much anticipated sophomore long player. Combining synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion and a deep soulfulness the band are complimented by star-in-the making frontwoman Lalin St. Juste's lyrical stream of consciousness. Featuring 13 tracks, the record is a grower that will attract an even bigger audience with the iconic video for the eponymous future-soul title track. So then, Flames & Figures, a significant step forward for a significant band.
