Emily Loizeau plays French folk pop, with the occasional line in English here and there. Her last album featured guest vocals from Andrew Bird. I prefer when she sings in French, but handily you can hear two versions of her new song Sister on Myspace, one in French and one in English. I can’t speak French so I can’t understand her biography, how useless of me. At the top of her myspace it says “Nouvel Album Pays Sauvage Sortie Le 2 Fevrier 2009″ which I suppose translates to: new album, Pays Sauvage, out February 2nd.
There is a man/lady with a beard on that poster. Interesting. Perhaps she’s going for a circus-y vibe. Sister is quite bouncy and poppy and has some sweet whistling parts. Keep and eye out for the album. In the meantime, watch this video of Je Suis Jalouse from L’Autre Bout ue Monde. She can sing brilliantly.
