Si vous reconnaissez cette voix, c’est normal. Vous l’avez entendu sur les mélodies de Vampire Weekend, dont Rostam était le fondateur et qu’il a quitté début 2016. En solo donc, et fort de ses origines iraniennes, le multi-instrumentiste et producteur de talent nous offre une expérience introspective brute, vraie, sensuelle et enivrante, au travers de son premier album Bike Dreams. @Pitchfork

Half-Light​,​ ​the​ ​debut​ ​album​ ​from​ ​Rostam,​ ​was​ ​released​ ​September​ ​15,​ ​2017,​ ​on​ ​Nonesuch Records.​ ​Rostam​ ​is​ ​known​ ​for​ ​his​ ​work​ ​in​ ​Vampire​ ​Weekend​ ​and​ ​produced​ ​each​ ​of​ ​their​ ​three albums.​ ​His​ ​kaleidoscopic​ ​debut​ ​album​ ​features​ ​fifteen​ ​songs​ ​that​ ​were​ ​written,​ ​produced,​ ​and performed​ ​by​ ​Rostam​ ​in​ ​his​ ​Los​ ​Angeles​ ​home​ ​studio.​ ​​

« It​ ​wasn’t​ ​until​ ​I​ ​had​ ​almost​ ​finished​ ​this​ ​album​ ​and​ ​I​ ​was​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​decide​ ​what​ ​I​ ​should​ ​call​ ​it that​ ​I​ ​took​ ​the​ ​time​ ​to​ ​look​ ​up​ ​the​ ​word​ ​’half-light,' »​ ​Rostam​ ​says​ ​of​ ​the​ ​album’s​ ​title.​ ​ »That lyric,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​large​ ​part​ ​of​ ​that​ ​song,​ ​had​ ​come​ ​to​ ​me​ ​in​ ​a​ ​stream​ ​of​ ​consciousness​ ​sitting​ ​in​ ​front of​ ​a​ ​piano​ ​years​ ​ago,​ ​captured​ ​in​ ​a​ ​voice​ ​memo​ ​on​ ​my​ ​phone.​ ​I​ ​had​ ​never​ ​stopped​ ​to​ ​figure​ ​out what​ ​that​ ​word​ ​meant​ ​exactly.​ ​But​ ​when​ ​I​ ​read​ ​its​ ​definition,​ ​and​ ​found​ ​that​ ​it​ ​had​ ​a​ ​double meaning—that​ ​it​ ​referred​ ​to​ ​both​ ​dawn​ ​and​ ​dusk—I​ ​started​ ​to​ ​think​ ​of​ ​how​ ​those​ ​times​ ​of​ ​day are​ ​part​ ​of​ ​so​ ​many​ ​lyrics​ ​on​ ​this​ ​album.
