La Maison

Those of you with good memories may recall that last year I wrote about Le Volume Courbe, an experimental London based group centred around French singer Charlotte Marionneau. There was an album called I Wish Dee Dee Ramone Were Here With Me which had two songs on it that I loved. This one…

…and this one…

I have recently come into possession of a remix of The House. Sonic Boom has gotten his mitts all over it and given it his noisy, droney treatment. However since drafting this post word has come through and I’ve been asked not to share that remix right now, so sorry, it’s not here. Having written most of the post I thought it was well worth sharing these two songs again. Enjoy.

The French vibe continues. Le Volume Courbe- Charlotte Mariounneau and her friends, people like Kevin Shields, Martin Duffy and Chris Mackin- have a new album out and there’s this lovely song on it, a shimmering ode to friendship. It sounds a bit like My Bloody Valentine after they got a little drunk and your idealised French girl wandered in and started singing over it. Everyone had a good time, hugged and had another drink. Tres bien.

The Volume Curve

The weekend and the presentation went very well. We caught up with lots of families we’ve met before and got introduced to new ones, dealing with diagnoses and disabled children and life limiting illness. It’s good but I’m feeling knackered and drained already and that’s not a good way to start the week.

Chris Rotter, round here recently as a member of The Patti Yang Group and Two Lone Swordsmen’s guitar wrangler,tipped me off to this song he’s involved with by Le Volume Courbe. Led by French-born, London-based singer Charlotte Marionneau, Le Volume Courbe play sweet psychedelic pop and have previously recorded with Kevin Shields, Hope Sandoval and members of Primal Scream. This song, The House, is a beauty, all sun dappled and full of gorgeous melodies.
