Le Volume Courbe

There’s not usually much French music on this blog. Nothing francophobic, just that I don’t really go for smooth sophisticated pop or sweaty club bangers. There are always exception to this though and Le Volume Courbe is one of them. A four-track EP will make its unassuming way into the world next month, showing off the talents of Charlotte Marionneau and her band, both on her own songs and in covering tunes by Rocky Erickson and Nico. It’s all over in little more than 10 minutes, but these songs leave their gentle mark and whet the appetite for Marionneaau’s forthcoming second album. She’s got props from Kevin Shields (she supported MBV at their Roundhouse comeback shows and Shields appears on the EP) but ultimately the record stands on the smartness and intrigue of her songs.  The tune below apparently features in the recent film The Kid, but given some of the reviews, that’s probably best kept quiet.
