Nouvelle Vague by 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.

9/10 Clinton 03 December 2006
Here's a curio. Its by Nouvelle Vague and its a whole pile of post punk/new wave songs done in a laid back Brazilian style. When it works its absolutely tremendous as on Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart',  PIL's 'This is not a love song', The Cure's 'A Forest' and XTC's 'Making Plans for Nigel'. There's also versions of songs by Depeche Mode, The Specials, The Undertones, Sisters of Mercy and a few others  - some hit, some miss but if you like Brazilian music like Astrid Gilberto AND post punk/new wave you're going to love this. On Peacefrog.
