Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble

3rd September 2024

Laetitia issues a call to the traumatized civilizations of Earth: we’re urged to finally evolve past our countless millennia of suffering and alienation. Her songs score the complexities and harmonies within this directive: organ, guitar, bass, synth, trombone, vibraphone, live and programmed drums, and a vocal assembly of men and women billed as The Choir, working intricate chord/tempo/and dynamic changes, as Laetitia’s empathic presence leads the way.

‘An antidote to the corporate pop that forces us to be joyful, Rooting For Love offers a genuine alternative without being militant or hideously self aware.’
8/10, The Quietus

‘For an artist working with such a recognizable palette, Sadier manages to keep painting in bold and striking colours. In terms of the production, this is decidedly Sadier’s best-sounding solo album to date.’
8/10, Dusted Magazine

‘I dig a conceptual framework but to be honest my enjoyment of Rooting For Love has little to do with earthbound concerns and everything to do with sheer escapist pleasure in form and grain.’
The Wire
