Dondolo - Dondolismes

By Anonymous G, at 01 July, 2007 18:36  

oh yes, dondolo is great
also check out lizzy ling, brisa roche, hiripsime, florent marchet, and oliva ruiz.

Hi Mordi. You should also try Saint Privat (marvellous easy-lounge-pop with gorgeous singer Valérie :-)

Nothing really out of the ordinary and you've probably already heard 'em. I'm gonna go ahead recommend these anyway, just in case you missed them:
* Camille Ta douleur
* Alizée J'en Ai Marre
(Youtube links)

By Blogger dan s., at 01 July, 2007 22:56  

thanks- there are quite a few new names to me so i'll do some research!

and of course i LOVE alizee- although it's been a while she has released anything.

I like some camille songs- ta douleur was a good choice though!

i'm liking some of the new zazie album and am looking into calogero, indochine too.

carla bruni and les breastfeeders

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 01 July, 2007 23:23  

Mordi, How do you feel about Bertrand Burgalat? http://www.tricatel.com/
Allegra is great. Etienne Daho? Katrine? Francoize Breut? Dominique Ain? Perhaps you'd like Coralie Clement or Keren Ann. BTW, Thanks for blogging Blow Up Doll. Great!

Emily Loizeau's album L'autre bout du monde was pretty good. Bénabar is always funny. I love Jeanne Cherhal's stuff. And finally, Prototypes are a great french electro indie band.

Thanks for sharing great music! Long may it continue!

If not done already, you should listen to Christophe Willem, last year's pop idol winner.. he is just amazing..
To Amel Bent too, first album.
To Alex Beaupain and his great soundtrack for Les Chansons d'amour the best french movie for 2007..
Anaïs too "The cheap show"
And Lio for her last year's wonderful melancholic album..
You'll thank me ;-)

Hi!

Some great singers (all female) from the past few years:
-Zazie (I love the new album "Totem", and her second one, "Zen" is still the best)
-Rose (Some great songs, my favorites are Ciao bella, La liste, Pauvre con)
-Axelle Red (amazing, last album "jardin secret" is one of the best; and a great mix of J'ai fait un rêve came out as a single some years ago)
-Vanessa Paradis (her new song Divine Idylle is magnificent)
-Coralie Clément (first album Salle des pas perdus is one of my all time favorites)
-Charlotte Gainsbourg
-Véronique Sanson (her last album Longue Distance is still very nice; new tour is plannes for 2008)

If you'd like to hear some tracks of those artists, just mail and I'll send you the mp3.

christophe's 'Double Je' is a suresot for you. i'm totally obsessed nowadays by Saule's album Vous Etes Ici. Jeff Buckley meets Brel.
