Neat little 7” from solo French artist Élg, aka Laurent Gérard. Two tracks of creeping acoustic guitar and multi-tracked inquisitive vocals. This music exudes a strange atmosphere, intimate but also slightly uncomfortable. Intriguing work. Triste Zoo is released by the Lexi Disques label.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 March 2015

This record is not just for those who love having a Frenchman whispering vague threats into their ears.

That’s what it starts off like though with just the pluck of a distant detuned guitar for company but if you are patient you’ll find plenty of enjoyment as the track wears on. The plucks become more structured before forming themselves into a lovely melody which is vaguely folky and eerie reminding me of Bed, Yann Tiersen and French dream-poppers Carmine. Really great.

Overleaf that self same guitar picks out a beguilingly pretty melody over which the oddest of male/female vocals interweave. It’s kind of like an ancient dusty Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra. Add to that a piano falling down the stairs and distorted guitar scree and you have a really special and unusual 7”.
