Tasty 7" platter from el-g who's had summat out on the K RAA K label before. It's a gentle folky piece with flickers of psychedelic strangeness sung in sensuous French by a lady with the striking ability to make my heart flutter. 'Armelle' is a hard thing to pin down (and all the finer for it) but I can assure you it's one of the prettiest & intriguing things i've heard in weeks. I think lovers of Cocorosie & fellow magical kooks should sweep this baby up and embrace it's twinkly wonders & sweet string flourishes. Really beautiful. The flip is quite different, like a lonesome French Lee Hazlewood or Johnny Cash but imbued with something more eerie, like he's been trailed by evil spectres whilst riding his horse through some darkened haunted forest. Halfway in and the forest attacks, an explosion of terrifying violence ensues then.....he's back on his horse like nothing ever happened. Remarkable stuff, it really is....
