Autre Ne Veut’s third album, Age Of Transparency, is a lot like his last one in that you’ll want to give it a few listens to really sink in and take hold. Arthur Ashin’s take on twisted, fractious R&B is gorgeous on surface level, but it only becomes truly devastating with time. I’m not sure if Transparency ever reaches the heights of Anxiety — and there’s no “Counting“-like standout, unfortunately — but it’s still a great listen. So far he’s shared (and seen great videos for) “World War Pt. 2,” “Panic Room,” and the title track — listen to the rest of Ashin’s vividly realized world below.
Age Of Transparency is out 10/2 on Downtown Records.
