WILD BEASTS AT THE DAYS OFF FESTIVAL IN PARIS // 72' - 2012

With their completely unique sound and swooping vocals… the group takes us further into its own emotional sexual universe; the Wild Beasts’ songs are about desire, the mysterious and dark object that obsesses us and drives us over the edge. Recording their last album, Smother, in Wales did little to cool the ardour of Hayden Thorpe’s vocals and their sound retains every bit of its accustomed warmth. With their own brand of light, wistful folk-pop, there’s something of both Beach House and Thom...

CAMILLE AT THE OLYMPIA // 86' - 2012

Camille is at the Olympia for the release of “Ilo Veyou”, a sincere, touching and accomplished album. At the head of a choir of children, taking classically trained musicians down the path to pop, adopting whatever style appeals to her from Medieval folk to an Edith Piaf parody, from witty little ballads to nursery rhymes... And always, always, the writing that zigzags between metaphors too ethereal to be caught in flight and realities put too bluntly to be immediately taken in. Camille has...

How sweet revenge can be. Look at this man, who has gathered up all his lost years, who has shaped them with hope, with patience and whose moment has finally come. Look at him, this sixty-year-old man, who’d bring any kid to his knees. Watch him kneel himself at the very first song, his eyes full of tears as though thanking heaven for the opportunity to sing at last, pouring his heart out as though it were his first and last chance.
Look at his sincerity, his strength, his energy. Look...

DIRTY PROJECTORS AT THE GAITE LYRIQUE // 56' - 2012

When Amber and two backing singers went into “Beautiful Mother” at the Gaîté Lyrique, there was that unexpected harmony between three voices thrown together on the spur of the moment, combining and giving rise to something else, something more.
Dirty Projectors is above all the work of an inconoclast, of an artist just crazy enough to produce a musical sap like nothing else. Unless it’s an ensemble that gets its strength from a bold assembly of sundry talents and conflicting voices. Is...

She’s toured for a long time in a duo, armed only with her voice and a drummer: herself a one woman band, playing guitar, autoharp, mbira, ukulele and kalimba, her drummer providing the rest. But here in Paris she is supported by a whole orchestra,...

PATRICK WATSON AT THE CABARET SAUVAGE // 55' - 2012

A few years ago, Patrick Watson liked to go down into the audience wearing a bunch of megaphones on his shoulders. At the Cabaret Sauvage, he began on a darkened stage, the instruments lit by a pair of gloves studded with tiny lightbulbs. “Lighthouse” ended in a blaze of trumpets, tumult and dazzling suns.
Patrick Watson orchestrates each song and gives it it’s own special staging. The crowd comes on board, joining in the chorus in an approximate English and creating a convivial...

BAXTER DURY AT LA MAROQUINERIE // 56' - 2011

A concert to coincide with the release of the album “Happy Soup”. The Baxter/Madelaine combo works brilliantly: there’s a real complicity between the musicians and the band are obviously enjoying themselves. The director has given himself a free rein in capturing the full flavour of the event, picking up a glance here, a look of mock disgust there or a moment of pure excitement. And when the music starts to flow during Leak at the Disco or Cocaine Man, we’re up there with the band, enjoying the...
