8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 15 October 2009
Singer/songwriter Emily Loizeau has created a sprawling epic with her second full length LP. There is a massive seventeen songs on 'Pays Sauvage'! Emily appears to have embraced the ideals of the communal playing and recording experience enlisting friends from all over the shop to help sculpt an intriguing collection of country folk. With assistance from David Herman Düne, Moriarty, Jean-Baptiste Bruhnes, cellist Olivier Koundouno, drummer/guitarist Cyril Avèque and the bizarre “bearded women of Paris chorus” Emily has crafted a record that embraces english, european and american folk influences whilst bringing her own spin on the equation. It helps that she has an impeccable voice and a certain way with words, not sure about the French stuff (my French is awful) but the english lyrics ooze humour and charm which suggests an impeccable taste in literature and a taste for adventure. For a record that is primarily based on folk style arrangements 'Pays sauvage' is also musically adventurous. Arrangements are bold and lush or sparse and cheeky depending on what is required form the musicians. In parts this approach reminds me of dEUS with it's exotic arrangements and strange use of acoustic instruments. Overall, I believe this to be a beautiful example of how modern folk records should be made. With repeat listens i reckon this'll be a keeper for sure.
