Camille
Black Session 2005 [no label]
Live at Studio 105, Maison de la Radio, Paris, May 30, 2005.

WARNING: IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! ONE SONG CONTAINS BAD LANGUAGE

Camille is a name to remember. Soft and light but when she sings the Dead Kennedy’s trademark single Too Drunk To Fuck, she’s not quirky but ballsy. One critic has already named her "Miss Cheeky" but that’s to miss out on her background - a degree in literature and politics.

We first heard of her when she performed with the group Nouvelle Vague on a US radio show. "I love languages, and singing in English feels very natural to me. That's one of the reasons I enjoyed working with Nouvelle Vague."

NV is on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label which is an artist’s label for world music. NV’s subject was ‘80s punk given a bossa nova twist. "I don't know anything about punk/new wave music though - probably because I was very young at the time and because, as a child, I would listen more to the music from my parent's youth, i.e. music from the ‘70s. And so I recorded the tracks for Nouvelle Vague without knowing or hearing any of the original versions! The producers just taught the songs to me. Strangely, I feel very connected to these songs, not from a generational point of view, but from an intimate point of view. I think they are universal."

Five of the songs offered here are from a concert with Nouvelle Vague. The main show however offers tracks from her 2005 album Le Fil. Camille has chosen not to make this album an all-English language album like Keren Ann’s but to continue writing and singing in French. "I like writing in French because, believe it or not, I find it such a challenge to make the lyrics sound musical," she said. Stylistically, Camille borrows from classic French chansons from the ‘30s and ‘40s, as well as Anglo-American folk music and Brazilian Bossa Nova.

All in all, her career to date shows her deep musical reference points, good taste and eclectic record collection. The tracks offered have never been officially released.
