Gone are the long locks, away with the jolly atmosphere, Carmen Maria Vega now looks like an extra from the Rocky Horror show. Quite a change for the gipsyfied pop-star (call her the female Thomas Dutronc), who now adds beats to her music. Her sophomore album will be released later this year, last year a 4-track EP was up on iTunes for a few weeks. Then it was gone. You can’t (well, I can’t) listen on her site anymore. But at FS, we have our ways of getting the good stuff. On that EP are two modern sounding popsongs – Sans Rien strays into Yelle-territory. Plus a slow blues and a track Zaz could’ve sung. The curiousity for that second album just got bigger.
