ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bix Medard - Y-dress?

Francophiles be prepared to swoon! This week the spotlight is on Brussels-based band Bix Medard. On their latest album, La Nouvelle Chanson Française (Altaïr), the soft, airy vocals and flute-playing of Bix mix with the down-tempo electronic, new wave beats of Peter Clasen. The songs, sung entirely in French, have already made Bix Medard a CMJ fan-favorite. The duo climbed their way up to number 32 on the charts this past April. A sophomore release, a collection of both new tracks and Chanson remixes, is already in the works in collaboration with the Belgian fashion house Y-dress?. The album is scheduled for a Tokyo premiere this October.

CD review "Bix Medard - Y-dress?"
Bix Medard – Y-Dress? (Altair Musik)

Whenever I am given a CD to review that has in the opening lines “influenced by the likes of Bjork, Coco Rosie and Serge Gainsbourg” I have to say I get a little excited.

Of course Coco Rosie is known for her distinctive voice that really gives her acoustic music an originally beautiful twist; Serge Gainsbourg most famous for his collaboration with Jane Birkin and their ‘Je T'aime’ track of 1969 and of course not forgetting Bjork known for her individual style of music and of course her taste in fashion. I was unsure how these could influence an artist who’s style is ‘electro/indie/alternative but I have to say it does, well as much as ‘Bix Medard’s’ music can be explained in terms of other artists, for me, she is so wholly unique.

‘Bix Medard’ is made up of Peter Clasen electronic bass playing mixed with Bix's voice and flute playing. With a unique style Bix sings in a very poetic style, almost reading her lines to the beat of the sounds around her, creating a very organic style of what I would call electro pop. Although not fully knowing what individual songs were actually about (having given up French longer ago than I can remember) I still felt that I was carried along by the album and that the stories were unfolding in front of me.

The word to best sum up this album would have to be unique. Even her cover of ‘imagine’ had an eerie electronic individuality that only Bix’s smooth breathless voice could instil into her songs. I think my favourite track is 'c’est si bon', one of the more pop orientated songs on the album but with a very catchy guitar beat and some great underlying sounds, it picks you up and bounces you along on a happy wave of light electronics and Bix’s sweet as chocolate melodic voice.

If your looking for something a little different try a little bit of Bix Medard this year.
