It’s so good to hear a new and beautiful, mellowed-out, neo-soul track from the feathery-voiced Guerre. The song is called “Ali”, and was posted by the Aussie label, The Finer Things at its bandcamp page. The release is paired off as a split with “Kassett”, a song by Nakagin. “Ali” follows on the heels of Guerre guesting on “Hypothermia”, a song by Collarbones, from off the upcoming release, “Die Young”. “Ali” is a fantastic R&B cut, with high-falsetto vocals, overlaid voices, the sound of birds chirping in the background, tinkling jazzy keyboard, and a steady sensual groove. It’s one of Guerre’s best. Read archived Their Bated Breath posts about Guerre here. — David D. Robbins Jr.
