Areski, Brigitte Fontaine

L'Incendie (LP)

Label: BYG Actuel

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock

2019 Repress. LP reissue, in gatefold sleeve and 180 gr. vinyl. L'Incendie is the first collaboration between Areski and Brigitte Fontaine. Originally released in 1974 on the Byg Records label, it is their third collaborative album and an exceptional work. In a perfect symbiosis with Brigitte Fontaine's magnificent voice and surrealist texts, Areski creates a minimalist 'ethno-folk acoustic universe.' Areski wrote the lyrics and Fontaine the music, which is the contrary of their usual collaborative process - in the uniquely French 'dark chanteuse' genre, this is a classic. Utterly creative and calm but passionate folk-centered rarefied miniatures.
The word "folk" here embrace different traditions, geographically and temporally: it's like many souls merged in two, now singing stories of nowhere and "nowhen" with the emotional power of thousands and the colours of dreams
