So, in 2021, we said, hey, there’s this singer called Lonny, she’s from Quebec, oops, no, she’s from France, and she’s an artist to watch. Keep track of Lonny! And then, we didn’t follow our own advice. So now, in 2024, we have to catch up. Lonny released an album (Ex-Voto, on Bandcamp HERE), and an EP, with reworked versions of song on her debut album, live tracks, demo’s. Her sultry, yet powerful voice is something else. There’s classic chanson in her voice, deep Americana and Stereolab’ish experiment. This is my favorite new track:

The guitars, the ethereal vibe of this song, reminded me of this Filles Sourires fave by Lisa Portelli:

De Flore

Sultry electronic bossanova by Canadian bedroom-pop duo De Flore:


First feature on this blog for Canadian singer Beyries. Her albums are mostly in English, with scattered French songs. This new track is a French duet with Albin de la Simone. It’s a tender ballad, fragile (of course), just a good song:

Les Passagers

Sultry and slightly psychedelic song about watching the end of the world, whilst drinking coca cola, by Montreal’s Les Passagers.

Coeur de Pirate

To celebrate 15 years of CdP, queen Béatrice recorded this BEAUTIFUL version of a song from her debut album:

Les Frangines

Anna & Jacinthe, les soeurs Frangines. They make pop-folk, and have lovely voices:

Donna Blue

With a plucky Gainsbourgian bassline like in this track, bonuspoints are earned. Delightful Dutch duo Donna Blue released this English/French, slightly psychedelic track. With a Beatles-reference, I’d say. Loving that bassline, the atmosphere and, as ever, that voice.
