✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine & AreskiL'Incendie (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine 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

✨✧ AreskiUn Beau Matin ... CD
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
Areski on his own, without Brigitte Fontaine – 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". CD
Also available Un Beau Matin (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP 22.99

✨✧ Brigitte FontaineLibido ... CD
Polydor (France), 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work we've heard from Brigitte Fontaine in many years – an album that has her working heavily with older collaborator Areski, as well as the legendary Jean-Claude Vannier! Many of the tunes have a bit of strings, used sparely and subtly to shade in the sound – but backings also often include those weird sounds and textures that showed up often in Brigitte's best 70s work for Saravah – those almost-undistinguishable qualities that sneak in underneath the breathy vocals, and make her music so wonderful! The record's a tremendous return to form, and a shaking off of the too-postmodern qualities that got in the way of Fontaine's genius of late – with tracks that include "La Metro", "Elvire", "La Nacre Et Le Porphyre", "La Viande", "Ex Paradis", "Les Babas", "Mister Mystere", and "Noces".
