When the female choir rises up, it’s quite easy to see Ceci est mon corps as a song that Gainsbourg never recorded for his masterpiece Melody Nelson. Some guitarriffs come really close to those on that album. That said, it’s a haunting ballad in it’s own right, with enough charm (and sexiness) to make a lasting impression. Lafille (don’t know her real name) chanes on her debutalbum from bratty poprock (Aujourd’hui J’me Lave Pas) to touching ballads (J’ai Rencontré Quelqu’un Qui Te Ressemble). I Wanna Be Your Cat is dreadful, but the two closing tracks Ceci est mon corps and the titletrack Lafille tout attaché(é) are absolutely brilliant. An album for the yearlists.

Lafille – Ceci est mon corps

Written by guuzbourg

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

    I Wanna Be Your Cat isn’t as bad as I feared, Dans mon appartement is the one that jars a little for me. Going to take a lot to keep this wonderful album out of my end of year top 10.
