Christine and the Queens

LISTEN: Chaleur Humaine by Christine and the Queens
This reissue in English of the French pop chart-topper will alleviate plenty of Google translation. According to Christine herself (Héloïse Letissier), many of her incisive lyrics exploring identity and sexuality were originally written in English anyway. Thank goodness, we monoglots can now sing (and still dance) along.

SVIIB by School of Seven Bells
Recorded as a eulogy of sorts for band member Benjamin Curtis, with whom this album was written, singer Alejandra Deheza concocted this penetrating but uplifting collection of songs. A poppy music haze bleeds into dance anthems and touching indie rock. Atmospheric layers wrap Deheza’s personal reflections in a meditative but engaging experience that is just captivating.

STREAM: American Masters: Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock and Roll on PBS
Sister Tharpe brought gospel into the rock era with her singular stringing and performances at the Cotton Club and other New York venues, attracting the admiration of legends like Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. Her guitar chops inspired Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Little Richard. Watch her story and see her perform in this historical documentary.

The Frick Museum was the perfect Beaux-Arts backdrop for Herrera’s urbane mix of soft colors and structured, gridlike surfaces held together by sheer strips of fabric. The end result: minimal, elegant looks befitting modern uptown girls.

Carolina Herrera is available in selected stores at our Designer Eveningwear boutiques.
