Jean Grae and Quelle Chris' album Everything's Fine. Available here on LP and CD.
Part biting satire, part cognitive behavioral therapy, Jean Grae and Quelle Chris’ collaboration is a hilarious, caustic, and gorgeous consideration of what it really means to be “fine” today. There are ways to hear this album as both damning or redemptive, depending on the perspective. But it is never sanctimonious, and it is constantly breathtaking. Grae and Chris aren’t encouraged by the fire raging around them, but they soldier on, as we all must, finding a sort of black humor in the idiocy, the chaos, and the sheer absurdity of it all. Sometimes the only way to survive is to be “fine.” Sometimes all you can do to be fine is laugh.
