ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andre Akinyele, one of funk and R&B's most musically diverse indie artists, finally releases Telegram Mews (2018), arriving 2 years after his full-length critically acclaimed The Unauthorized Playlist (2016). Filled with solid musicianship, social and political awareness, and transcendental production, Telegram Mews is a blend of funk/pop-driven hip-hop, erotica, and mystical soul-R&B. The twisting melodies of Andre's musicality are here. The pop/synth-driven "T.O. (Toronto)" provides a glimpse into his new life in the Canadian city. The soulful and layered vocal harmonies are at the center of the tech-soul-funk "Sweet Thang" and the cover of Prince's "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker." The title track and the D'Angelo inspired "Old Skool Vibe" are party anthems filled with reggae-tinged, head bobbin' grooves. The soulful and erotic piano-driven "Body" and "Call Me," featuring Jon O'Bergh on piano, harkens to Andre's love of romanticism. In contrast, the politically conscious songs "Immigrant" and "Compassion" are relevant to the state of world turbulence, with the latter song featuring EFFIIGY.
