St. Germain, a.k.a. Ludovic Navarre, is back after a 15-year hiatus with this self-titled album. The looping, electronica-influenced tracks are calm, soothing, jazzy, smooth. Navarre collaborated with Malian artist Guimba Kouyate, giving the record a distinctive Malian/African feel. Elements of samba also creep in. RIYL Amadou and Mariam, Cinematic Orchestra.
