Because of a Henri Matisse exposition in MoMa New York, five great French bands and singers were invited to play in the Big Apple. Barbes Records releases a digital-only compilation (out Aug. 3 on iTunes, Amazon, etc) with songs by FS-faves like Holden, Marianne Dissard and Fredda to promote the expo and the artists. The only song about a Matisse painting is an inédit by Fredda (Fréderique Dastrevigne) called Fenêtre à Collioure. Which, as you all know, is also a painting by Matisse (pictured). The brushes in the intro sound like a brush on canvas – intentional? Fredda sings about the boats in the window and the colours – lovely song. Dates for the NYC-shows here. If any of my American readers is going to one (or more) of these shows, please write a review!

Fredda – Fenêtre à Collioure

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