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.

Carmen Maria Vega – Sans rien

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Carmen meets Yelle meets Catherine Ringer when Fred was still alive… and actually it’s none the worse for it. (Makes mental note to add to my “watch out for” list…)
