A second outing from French singer Coralie Clement – produced by the great Benjamin Biolay, and done with a sound that's much more guitar-heavy than her first! The style here is still very couched in references to older French pop – sung with a vocal approach that would make Jane Birkin proud, and delivered with a sinister edge that recalls some of our favorite early 70s work from that scene. But Biolay's also bringing up the guitars a bit more in the mix, fuzzing things up in a mode that works wonderfully with Coralie's breathy vocals – and which almost seems like a nod to the well-known Stereolab love of French pop. Titles include "Indecise", "Avec Ou Sans Moi", "U Beau Jour Pour Mourir", "Beau Fixe", "Kids", "L'Impasse", and "Ta Reverence". CD
Lovely French pop – with a stripped-down retro groove that's really delightful! Coralie's got a breathy vocal style that reminds us of a young Jane Birkin – and the backing on the set is in a small combo mode, with guitar, organ, bass, drums, and sax – grooving in a mode that's halfway between the left bank of the 60s, and the current underground pop stylings of groups on the Siesta label. Coralie's vocals are great – and the album's filled with loads of lovely original tunes that feel as if they were dug up off of lost 60s eps from France! Titles include "La Mer Opale", "L'Ombre Et La Lumiere", "Salle Des Pas Perdus", "Lou", "Le Dernier Train", and "Le Jazz Et Le Gin". CD
