Last winter I did a lot of walking. Mostly, I listened to solo piano albums and waited for snow that never really came. Those albums both amplified winter’s darkness and cocooned me from it. If I’d had Tosca’s “Bonjour” then, it would have fit in seamlessly—a warm heartbeat working as the sole rhythmic element and a solid backbone for echoed ripples of strings and a couple perfectly stark piano moments. It’s a chilling song, as dark as it is comforting. Tosca’s Odeon will be out February 3rd on !K7 Records.
