Song of the Day - June 23, 2006

Le Volume Courbe's I Killed My Best Friend is an intriguing album. Led by London based, but French born Charlotte Marionneau, the band has created an album that most would ignore. However, Charlotte's mumbled lyrics and lo-fi production fascinates me. Her singing style forces you to listen closely to comprehend her lyrics, while the lo-fi production values give an honesty to the album that I adore. Stellar tracks include "Papillon De Nuit" with its pigeon cooing, the title track "I Killed My Best Friend," and the heavy beats and intermittent piano of "Locarno." "I Shall Skip Your Judgement" is my favorite track, with it's acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, and lonesome keyboards. Charlotte Marionneau and her bandmates remind of me Nico and The Velvet Underground combined with the folk of Bob Dylan and his idiosyncratic vocals.
