Nouvelle Vague
Nouvelle Vague

Nouvelle Vague - a name best said in the voice of the continuity announcer from ‘Spongebob Squarepants’. The whole pop-songs-in-a-laid-back-stylee schtick is pretty common in the YouTube age, but back in 2006 Nouvelle Vague’s choice to cover tracks by Joy Division, The Clash and The Cure in a sultry lounge-jazz/bossa-nova style was charmingly novel. The project’s eponymous LP still sounds cracking all these years on, which is surely the reason behind this Kwaidan Records reissue.

Nouvelle Vague
Version Française

Nouvelle Vague’s ongoing exploration of the punk explosion and its subsequent reverberations throughout the wider world of pop takes aim at the early-80s French scene on ‘Version Française’. Here we have sixteen tracks suffused with punk rage and frustration at the economic crisis but also possessed with the irrepressible spirit of pop. Of course, no matter the source material, everything on ‘Version Française’ is rendered in Nouvelle Vague’s chic, postmodern take on the Gainsbourg style.

Nouvelle Vague
Curiosities

Nouvelle Vague are famous for making electronic versions of punk and new wave classics. Over the past 15 years, a few of those covers have remained unreleased. Curiosities gathers them all together in one place. The most interesting songs on here are The Gun Club’s Sex Beat, Richard Hell & The Voidoids’ Blank Generation and Suicide’s Ghost Rider. On Kwaidan Records.

Nouvelle Vague
I Could Be Happy

French covers band for lovers of beige Nouvelle Vague are back with another album titled I Could Be Happy. Featuring covers of the Ramones’ I Wanna Be Sedated, No One Is Receiving  by Brian Eno and All Cats Are Grey by The Cure, it’s a great album for those that love listening to background music. CD and vinyl from Kwaidan Records.
