Erika Spring

Erika Spring (Erika Forster-Spring, apparently) is one-third of Au Revoir Simone. For Jacno Future, a tribute to the late and great Jacno, she and Devonte Hynes (Lightspeed Champion) recorded a version of the Elli & Jacno song Les nuits de la pleine lune from 1984. Together with a remixed version of Etienne Daho’s Amoureux Solitaire-cover and Arthur H & Neïmo’s Libellule dans un rectangle, Erika’s version is one of the extra tracks on a special edition of Jacno Future. Gawd, how I hate those extra-tracks-editions, especially when they’re released a few weeks after the non-bonus edition. Vintage old major record company thinking. Anyhoo, on the web, everything is to be found. As far as I know, this is the first time Erika sang in French. Not really sure, but I think I’ve read somewhere that she was born in Zürich. Figures.
Oh, and the original song is of course from the Eric Rohmer film of the same name.
