We live in interesting times, people. Times where elegant country-noir singers like Marianne Dissard, she of the brilliant L’Entredeux, she who rubs shouders with the Calexico’s and members of Willie Nelson’s band, can’t get a record label to release her new album The Cat. Not Me. If you hear L’Oiseau, you wonder why. Surely, this soundtrack for Paris, Texas, if it had been shot in the Camargue, is sultry and brutal – just like Marianne herself. So enjoy this track. Not sure when we can hear the rest. If you’re new to Marianne and her music, go here.

Marianne Dissard – Oiseau

Written by guuzbourg

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

    Love this song… It’s a real smoulderer and everything I’ve come to expect from Tucson’s favourite fille. I can’t knock Bandcamp as I’ve discovered some of my new found fave artists there, but Anna’s idea of crowd funding via Kickstarter isn’t a bad idea… where do I sign up?

    The album’s done, Marianne needs to get it outthere. Bandcamp’s okay, but we need the real thing on vinyl!

    She should try Kickstarter or some other crowdfunding site. I’ll bet that would work.
