The Fil [The Thread] – hers – is still there. Intact. Unadulterated. It is the thread that she spun twelve years ago, and which saw her pulled into the public eye. The world of Chanson Française, which hasn't known such popularity for years, was left gobsmacked at this extraterrestrial's way of stretching and reshaping the language, its sounds and rhythms, as no-one else could. A strong personality which could not but cause a clash between adoring fans and overweening enemies on the scale of the Battle of Hernani... With her fifth album, Camille is holding on tight to her Fil. Written near to Villeneuve-Lès-Avignon, Ouï is a seed planted in a rhythmic furrow. It grows outward from a rhythm like a heartbeat, gradually unfurling its song and sounds. Because what you get from Camille's singing is both form and content. She has a way of making her work unique and setting herself apart from her predecessors, and even of her contemporaries. The rhythm at the heart of her songs is fed by many roots. Above all, the acrobatics in her voice are fuelled by folklore and traditional music (starkness, simplicity, austerity). Her voice walks. Then jumps. Then flies. Then stretches out. And starts again. The intense high-wire act plays itself out in every song. Sous le sable which opens this magnificent record perfectly reflects each unique aspect of Camille's work, in all its specificity, and it showcases her overall approach brilliantly. But above all, Ouï evokes a strong, physical sensation. And that is something quite rare in modern music. © MD/Qobuz

Hailed as the wunderkind of a new generation of French songwriters, Benjamin Biolay has often divided opinion, as his undeniable talents are not always exempt from narcissism. His sprawling double-album La Superbe will provide both admirers and critics with plenty of ammunition. While many contemporary French artists have unabashedly attempted to present themselves as the natural heir to Serge Gainsbourg, Biolay is arguably the strongest contender to the throne. He is a consummate master of the sultry boy/girl dialogue against an ostinato motif of swirling strings that Gainsbourg patented in the '60s, and that since the '90s has seemingly become the Holy Grail of a hefty chuck of the alternative scene (Pulp, Divine Comedy, Tindersticks, Blur, Portishead, Placebo, Suede, etc.). Nowhere is this more evident in La Superbe than in "Brandt Rhapsodie," where Biolay and Jeanne Cherhal act out an entire French film of the "couple conversation" genre inside of a five-minute pop song, with results that are -- much like those films -- as seductive as they can be infuriating. The same applies for much of this album. Biolay is clearly at the top of his game as a composer and arranger, and indeed La Superbe sounds like the ultimate decalogue of French sensuality, but there is a limit as to how many long-winded, cinematic, spoken monologues on sex, the futility of life, and languid bitterness a record can hold. This ambitious but definitely self-indulgent project plays almost like a suite and can too easily become a sensuous sonic blur, one where it becomes hard to discern individually memorable songs. It should be noted, however, that La Superbe was greeted with rave reviews in France, many judging it to be Biolay's masterpiece. Still, in spite of its impeccable realization, one cannot help but to recommend the perfect pop conciseness of early Biolay albums, such as Rose Kennedy or L'Origine, to the lush abandon and excess of La Superbe. ~ Mariano Prunes
