Great work by the team of BrigitteFontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record! The album's the only one they ever recorded that wasn't issued by the Saravah label – and it's a fantastic blend of otherworldly vocals with spare instrumentation that includes electric piano, flute, bandoneon, and percussion – wrapped together wonderfully with a haunting sound that's just amazing. Even if you don't understand French, the sound and style of the voices are more than enough to keep you captivated – and the album is some of the most indescribably beautiful music we can think of! Titles include "Le Borgais", "L'Abeille", "Les Petites Madones", "Le 6 Septembre", and "Ragilia". LP, Vinyl record album

About April 21, 2018
Areski on his own, without BrigitteFontaine – but sounding equally wonderful, and with a really haunting sound! The albums' recorded with very minimal backings – a bit of cello, flute, and bass – all in an echoey space that makes Areski's raspy, poetic vocals ring out beautifully – in a style that's hardly without precedent, unless you compare it to his classic duets with Fontaine! There's a lingering sadness to most tunes – especially in the use of cello – and although airy, the album's got a depth of feeling that's amazing – even if you don't understand the language. Titles include "Liberte", "80 A", "Nous Avons Tant Parle", "Bali", "L'Un Beau Matin", "Le Brouillard", and "Comme Avant". LP, Vinyl record album
