I have been in the mood for something a little different to listen to these days. Thus the Brigette Bardot record purchase. It’s fun and flirty, very sixties, with so much energy bursting into each song you have to get up and dance to it. On a different note, I also have been really enjoying another french songstress from the digital age, Emilie Simon. She is an incredibly talented electronic singer/songwriter with a avante garde style quite similar to Bjork, but with a flavor all her own.
She looks like a character right out of a fairy tale or maybe a Tim Burton film. I absolutely adore her style. And her music incorporates the use of all kinds of unusual instruments to create a totally unique sound, which coupled with her lovely lilting voice, makes for thoroughly interesting and beautiful music. It’s got a haunting quality about it. Definitely something different.
