    Default Variétés françaises

    Jérémy Chatelain: My next album is called "Variétés françaises" (French variety), a little nose-thumbing at the amalgam that people create with all styles of music. When you come from "Star Ac," you know how that works. Now, I no longer want to disguise my music to follow a certain trend. "Variété" means varied, mixing lots of influences, not just a debased expression.

    No this isn't another Jérémy thread, but rather a place to highlight any French artists that catch our interest at the moment. Let's try to keep the posts relevant and insightful, providing sample material whenever possible. The idea is broaden all our horizons to the world of variétés françaises!

    I'll get the ball rolling in a moment with...

    Nolwenn Leroy

    Nolwenn was the winner of Star Academy 2, and until now has been producing some fairly generic variétés françaises (her first album was even written before hand for whomever would win the StarAc competition!). But that all changes with the release of her new album, Histoires Naturelles.



    The album benefits from the personal touch of Laurent Voulzy.

    Better than a long speech, here is his official website, where you can have a look to his entire discography: http://www.laurentvoulzy.com/
    He wrote and sang with Souchon "Rockcollection", that Alizée has performed when she was young.

    Nolwenn's single has undoubtedly the Voulzy touch! He likes to mix French and English lyrics like in Nolwenn's single or in this one, for example (Mes nuits sans Kim Wild):
    Link: http://rapidshare.de/files/8930262/L...Wilde.mp3.html

    In my opinion he's a great artist though very discreet.
    The disc's first single, Nolwenn Ohwo, has especially been making a splash on the MFI forum. Several people there compare it favorably to Alizée. The music video is equally well done. I love the little march at 2:13. Take a look:

    http://rapidshare.de/files/8552904/n...ohwo_.avi.html



    Last, here's my personal review of the album. I've listened a few times and must say it is a very interesting disc! But overall the tracks are mixed.

    nolwenn ohwo - best track on the disc, by far.
    l'enfant cerf-volant - A worthy successor to Ohwo. Great track.
    reste encore - Boring, boring, boring.
    mon ange - Not as boring as the last track, but that's not saying much.
    histoire naturelle - Much more interesting. Too bad the melody's a total rip-off of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"!
    rien de mieux au monde - Now this is more like it! The atmospherics of the previous tracks meet a bit of rock.
    mystère - Then the atmospherics come back with a vengeance in this good track.
    les chimères (instrumental) - Filler, but nice.
    le rêves des filles - Is this a Jenifer album? Boring.
    endormie - Slow song. I hardly remember this track at all.
    london fantasy - Nice! I thought those sirens were real!!!
    mélusine - Good, but average.
    j'aimais tant l'aimer - OMG, this track is so WEIRD. It starts out completely generic but then goes totally insane one minute before the end. What the hell where they thinking?!? You'll either love it or hate it. I love it! Biggest musical WTF I've heard in a long time!

    So while this album does have it's share of generic and boring filler, overall it's quite a nice surprise that hit me out of nowhere with several amazing tracks, mind-blowing production (so rich, yet every sound is still so clear and distinct), and a great overall sound.

    Nolwenn's vid was cool (especially the trapeze part) and the song wasnt bad at all. Interesting.

    Gimme a good example from their vids. The first one I tried was rather boring. (Plus Rien)

    It was just basically speaking with anemic music in the bg, soz.

    the lyrics of plus rien

    l ne reste que quelques minutes à ma vie
    Tout au plus quelques heures
    je sens que je faiblis
    Mon frère est mort hier au milieu du désert
    Je suis maintenant le dernier humain de la terre

    On m'a décrit jadis, quand j'étais un enfant
    Ce qu'avait l'air le monde il y a très très longtemps
    Quand vivaient les parents de mon arrière
    grand-père
    Et qu'il tombait encore de la neige en hiver

    En ces temps on vivait au rythme des saisons
    Et la fin des étés apportait la moisson
    Une eau pure et limpide coulait dans les ruisseaux
    Où venaient s'abreuver chevreuils et orignaux

    Mais moi je n'ai vu qu'une planète désolante
    Paysages lunaires et chaleur suffocante
    Et tous mes amis mourir par la soif ou la faim
    Comme tombe les mouches...
    Jusqu'a c'qu'il n'y ait plus rien...
    Plus rien...
    Plus rien...

    Il ne reste que quelques minutes à ma vie
    Tout au plus quelques heures,
    je sens que je faiblis
    Mon frère est mort hier au milieu du désert
    Je suis maintenant le dernier humain de la terre

    Tout ça a commencé il y a plusieurs années
    Alors que mes ancêtres étaient obnubilés
    Par des bouts de papier que l'on appelait argent
    Qui rendaient certains hommes
    vraiment riches et puissants

    Et ces nouveaux dieux ne reculant devant rien
    ?taient prêt à tout pour arriver à leurs fins
    Pour s'enrichir encore ils ont rasé la terre
    Pollué l'air ambiant et tari les rivières

    Mais au bout de cent ans des gens se sont levés
    Et les ont avertis qu'il fallait tout stopper
    Mais ils n'ont pas compris cette sage prophétie
    Ces hommes-là ne parlaient qu'en termes de profits

    C'est des années plus tard qu'ils ont vu le non-sens
    Dans la panique ont déclaré l'état d'urgence
    Quand tous les océans ont englouti les îles
    Et que les inondations ont frappé les grandes villes

    Et par la suite pendant toute une décennie
    Ce fut les ouragans et puis les incendies
    Les tremblements de terre et la grande sécheresse
    Partout sur les visages ont lisait a détresse

    Les gent ont dû se battre contre les pandémies
    Décimés par millions par d'atroces maladies
    Puis les autres sont morts par la soif ou la faim
    Comme tombent les mouches...
    Jusqu'à c'qu'il n'y ait plus rien...
    Plus rien...
    Plus rien...

    Mon frère est mort hier au milieu du désert
    Je suis maintenant le dernier le humain de la terre
    Au fond l'intelligence qu'on nous avait donnée
    N'aura été qu'un beau cadeau
    empoisonné

    Car il ne reste que quelques
    minutes à la vie
    Tout au plus quelques heures,
    je sens que je faiblis
    Je ne peux plus marcher,
    J'ai peine à respirer
    Adieu l'humanité...
    Adieu l'humanité...

    I thing It is the most easy lyrics to translate
    because it has no metaphor

    I know The lyrics of les cowboys are really Big

    Because They sing A story
    or they have something to say
