En Solitaire

Parisian group Juniore have supported The Dandy Warhols on tour, something that will likely act as a bellwether as to if you’re going to dig their music or not. Personally this Norman Records™ typewriter-monkey can’t get enough of Courtney Taylor-Taylor and the gang, so I’m all for Juniore and their valium-dosed take on ye-ye. Stereolab and St. Etienne are the obvious touchstones for ‘En Solitaire’.


Man, the French really love the ‘60s don’t they? Juniore’s Magnifique is another one of those Gallic LPs that leans heavily on the likes of The Rolling Stones, Francoise Hardy, The Grateful Dead et al. Tracks like the eponymous cut have a light psychedelic bent to them too. It’s all very Melody’s Echo Chamber.

De Saison / Pour Noel, Cette Année

A merry Christmas single (part of the Snowflake label’s Christmas Singles Club in fact) from Juniore, whose voice you may know from appearances with such acts as Bot’Ox and Jackson. De Saison / Pour Noel, Cette Année finds her supported with a 60’s pop style band, possibly the best musical style for a Christmas single. Includes a Mariah Carey cover.
