imagesThe other big release this week, together with Albin de la Simone’s album, is Keren Rose Melouls third offering. Et Puis Juin is Rose’s follow-up since 2009’s Les souvenirs sous ma frange. It’s exactly what you expect it to be, breezy, soft-sighing, plonky songs sung with an airy voice, just the way you like it. Berry is the best reference. Rose adds a very nice song about Paris to a long list of songs bout the City of Light. It sounds a bit like a track Gainsbourg could’ve written for Isabelle Adjani, with less provocative lyrics. See the video for the title track here.

Rose – Jamais Paris ne me laisse

Written by guuzbourg

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

    And a new Chabada performance in February of ‘Et puis juin’ which is lip-synched quite well:

    France’s Amélie Veille – let’s hope she has better luck than that little-seen Canadian wonder – and to my mind preferable to Olivia Ruiz in the long dark hair class. Were Mireille Hartusch and her Petite Conservatoire de la Musique still around, Rose’s sharp edges would be knocked off and she would be smoothed to help her reach the top.

    By tghe way, a recent montage for a catchy song by Amélie Veille, ‘Pourtant je t’aime’ is at
    – Addictive if light.

    Nice voice in a kind of wistful Charlotte and her mum sort of way, but unfortunately Keren’s stuck in the comfort zone with this song and there’s nothing in either words or music that wants me to explore further.
