Vive le printemps (2)

And then the full album by actress Melanie Laurent rattles your mailbox. The girlfriend of Damien Rice (first featured here) sang on some soundtracks. The acoustic music (lots of guitars, piano and strings) and her voice reminds me of Berry. Which is nice. There are two duets with Rice on the album (he sings in English on both, she on one), every song has a little je ne sais quoi, a melody, a vocal thingy, that makes them more interesting the more you listen to ‘m. Yearlist-stuff, people. Several songs can serve as summer-hits. Je connais, for instance. Or the more uptempo, soulful Kiss.
