Cate Le Bon’s music turns the world upside down and shakes vigorously until all of the weirdness falls out. It’s a gorgeously choreographed mess, like ballet in a mud pit. The Welsh musician named her last album, 2016’s Crab Day, after a holiday created by her niece, who was incredulous about the purpose of April Fool’s Day and instead decided to spend April 1 celebrating crustaceans. Crab Day reflects life’s absurdity with equally absurd pop melodies that simultaneously sound like the products of careful calculation and a total surrender to the unpredictable currents of her stream of consciousness. Le Bon wrote her new album, Reward, while living alone in England’s Lake District. “There’s a strange romanticism to going a little bit crazy and playing the piano to yourself and singing into the night,” she says of the songwriting process in the record’s liner notes. Reward is about searching for meaning at a time when the very concept of “meaning” feels as though it’s going extinct."
