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.
