L’étourderie by Camille, the first single off of her new album (see an acoustic version above), was a nice teaser. But Tout dit, taken from a sampler that came with a recent edition of Les Inrocks, is less promising. In fact, I find it a tad boring. What do you think?

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

    I don’t know if it’s admirable rather than memorable. Seems a bit like a clever display of technique more than anything else. I need to listen again…

    Not boring at all! I love it, I find it amazing. I can’t stop listening to it. I’m glad she continues to surprise us.

    oh, & she gets extra points for balancing that pipe perfectly horizontally on her head during the ‘ L’etourderie ‘ acoustic video. Strangely, bizaarely mesmerisng, hypnotic, that. Can’t stop watching the pipe … very level-headed girl …

    In re & apropos of ‘ Tout Dit ‘ : I understand your reservations about a pure acoustic, but I think it is a fun change. It’s definitely an hors d’oeuvre, not a main course. 🙂

    I think it’s really interesting! The way she modulates between accompaniment and melody. No easy task my friend!
