Pierre Barouh —
Le Pollen ... LP Saravah (France), 1982. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Pierre Barouh – a rare Japanese recording done in the early 80s, with a sound that's quite different from his earlier work – but equally great! The album's never too poppy, or overdone – certainly quite far from conventional 80s work – thanks to help on the session from YMO and David Sylvian, who both bring in some wonderful sensibilities of their own. There's a bit of electronics on the album, but they're used quite softly – creating a cool pillow of sound – layers through which Barouh weaves his amazingly cool voice. There's a nice sense of darkness to the record, with loads of cool late night tracks, and a sound that's still very sexy and French. Tracks include "Les Uns & Les Autres", "St. Paul De Vence", "Demain", and "L'Autre Rive" – and as usual, some tracks were co-written with soundtrack legend Francis Lai. LP, Vinyl record album
