Best of 2018 #19: Manu Pékar – “Pagan Panic”


The lyricism of this recording borders on the epic, which in itself makes Pagan Panic pretty damn special.  But the casual ease in which it’s offered up makes for a contrast in expression that puts this recording on an entirely different plateau.  Some albums have an emotional impact of such strength that it elicits the feeling of having undergone a journey, of experienced an arc not unlike a storybook character.  The 2018 release from Manu Pékar is one such example, and one of the best to see the light of day in 2018.

Released on dbMP(x) Projects.

Music from: Paris, France
