    Histoire de Melody Nelson

    Import


    French icon and national treasure Serge Gainsbourg is no stranger to sexual proclivities, and with his 1971 album Histoire De Melody Nelson he weaved an erotic tale as seductive today as the day it was released. Inspired by actress and amour Jane Birkin and featuring the deft touch of arranger/conductor and co-conspirator Jean-Claude Vannier (LEnfant Assassins Des Mouches), not to mention a tight hand picked crew of top shelf U.K. session musicians, Histoire De Melody Nelson is an absolute masterpiece and an essential album for the discerning music lover.

    Du Jazz Dans Le Ravin

    Import


    Serge Gainsbourg (1928-1991): the original bad boy of French pop, the man all women wanted and all men wanted to be. He updated the French chanson and made it hip again, infusing it with the youth culture of the late 50s and 60s: one that was ruled by jazz, drugs and free love. The music of Gainsbourg heralded in this new era and his earliest songs became the soundtrack for a generation of Parisian youths. Side A features songs that originally appeared in 1959 on his second album (here in stereo), No. 2. Here Gainsbourg fronts the Alain Goraguer et Son Orchestre on songs like Le Claqueur de Doigts, a song about seducing chicks at a jukebox....a standard operating tactic for Gainsbourg! While side B features material from his 1958 debut, Du Chant a la Lune!, which featured early hits like Le Poinconneur Des Lilas the morbid tale of a Paris Metro ticket man who contemplates suicide to free him from the monotony of his life. Tracks 1-3 on side B were recorded live at the Theatre des 3 Baudets in November, 1958, while tracks 8-10 are taken from Gainsbourg's score for Jacques Doniol-Valcroze's 1960 film L'Eau a la Bouche (A Game for Six Lovers). While it has always been somewhat difficult for English audiences to appreciate Gainsbourg, due to the language barrier that keeps us from fulling appreciating the sharp wit and raunchy innuendos that permeate his brilliant lyrical style, I find that if I allow the music to carry me to the world of 1960s Parisian vice, my imagination can fill in the rest!

    Birkin / Gainsbourg: le symphonique

    "One thing amongst other things that you don't know, you had the very best of me."


    Serge's words and so true, which explains 30 years of me singing Gainsbourg on stage, I could never have done this without the help of Philippe Lerichomme, who knew Serge every bit as much as I did, his tastes his loves his frailties, what he would have liked what he would have disliked, and then, as my director for the stage, what to sing, for 25 years, trying each time, to make the concert fresh with the same material


    Then one has "luck", as I flew towards Tokyo to be with the Japanese, after the tsunami Fukushima, I had suggested a mini concert, so I could give back what they, as an audience for 40 years, had given me I got to the hotel, the concert hall, the emotion was palpable, and there, on a little stage I sang with a pianist, the most beautiful arrangements, so delicate and moving, and I was told his name Nobu, a composer in his own right When I got back to Paris I tried to rase money for the homeless, in Japan and I was reminded by my manager Olivier Gluzman, that I had promised to do 3, 5 concerts in the USA How? what and I thought of Nobu and away we went, with Serges' songs and his arrangements, for 2 years with the concert Via Japan!


    I had said to someone, that Serge used classical music so often, how lovely it would be with a symphony orchestra, and suddenly, it was upon me: Francofolies of Montreal proposed me to launch their 2016 edition by two concerts with the symphonic orchestra of Montreal. What to do, Philippe Lerichomme would find great ideas, with whom, Nobu I have just listened to his arrangements, some beauty of a strange kind, tangels of Mendelshon of jazz, with great fun and charm


    I rubbed Serge and Philippe Lerichomme and Nobu together and we have Gainsbourg Symphonic!

    Initials B.B.

    This 1968 album features a second set of songs cut with the one and only B.B. (Brigitte Bardot). Initials B.B. sounds almost like a greatest hits of funky decadence. The sensuous melodies and gorgeous arrangements make the songs like little Technicolor movies in sound. Initials B.B. continues to sound as stylish and hip as it must have the day it was released.

    Du Jazz Dans Le Ravin

    Limited Edition Vinyl With ACV Quality


    Gainsbourg, the original bad boy of French pop, the man who updated the French chanson and made it hip again infusing it with the youth culture of the late 50s and 60s, ruled by jazz, drugs and free love. Very different from his celebrated later works, the music captured on this limited edition vinyl edition finds Gainsbourg mixing traditional chanson and big-band jazz rather than the avant garde pop that went on to define his career outside of France. This record presents a revealing insight into the early years of this iconic figure.

    Intoxicated Man / Pink Elephants

    Mick Harvey, a long time Nick Cave collaborator and
    bandmate (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Crime & The
    City Solution) is releasing a remastered double album
    collection of his most important solo works to date -
    two Serge Gainsbourg albums, Intoxicated Man and
    Pink Elephants. The double collection will include
    two unreleased tracks, "Dr Jeckyll" and "Run From
    Happiness."


    Intoxicated Man (1995) and Pink Elephants(1997)
    are Mick Harvey's interpretations of the songs
    of legendary singer, songwriter and poet Serge
    Gainsbourg - they are the first major works translating
    Gainsbourg's influential work from French to English.
    Mick Harvey explains, "Translating a great writer is like
    walking through a minefield and I set myself the difficult
    task of attempting to keep the places of rhyming,
    metre and meaning accurate to the originals."


    The vocal parts originally sung by Gainsbourg's muses
    Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot and daughter Charlotte
    Gainsbourg are here sung by long time collaborator
    Anita Lane - other guests on the albums include
    Bertrand Burgalat, Warren Ellis, Nick Cave and David
    McClymont.


    In 2013, Mick Harvey and his band performed the
    songs of Serge Gainsbourg at the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    curated ATP festival. Mick Harvey will be on tour in
    Europe in the spring of 2014.

    As rich and densely layered as their last album, Misery Is A Butterfly, but the overall mood of wistfulness, melancholy, and regret has been replaced by one of mystical wonder and renewed energy. It's art music and heart music, with equal appeal to a Serge Gainsbourg fan as to a Sonic Youth fan, without ever sounding like either act - LA Times.

    Delirium Tremens

    Delirium Tremens Is The Third Collection Of
    Serge Gainsbourg Reinterpretations By Mick
    Harvey


    It was a mixtape made by a Frenchman and handed to Mick
    Harvey (Bad Seeds, The Birthday Party, Crime & The City
    Solution) in reunified Berlin that first alerted him to the oeuvre
    of Serge Gainsbourg.


    Like the rest of us, he'd heard 'Je T'aime (Moi Non Plus)',
    but the variety and depth of Gainsbourg's genius took him
    aback - so much so that he set about fastidiously translating
    the lyrics into English and disseminating the chansons to the
    anglophone world with a missionary zeal. The scope of the
    project he undertook was breathtaking.


    Mick Harvey explains, "Translating a great writer is like
    walking through a minefield and I set myself the difficult
    task of attempting to keep the places of rhyming, metre and
    meaning accurate to the originals. One or more of these
    elements is usually dispensed with in the translating of poetry
    and lyrics, but I did not want to iron out any of Gainbourg's
    more aberrant angles or lose any of his especially perverse
    and peculair touches."

    2. Deadly Tedium (Ce Mortel Ennui)
    3. Coffee Colour (Couleur Cafe)
    4. The Convict's Song (Chanson de Forçat)
    5. SS C'est Bon (Est-ce Est-ce Si Bon)
    6. I Envisage (J'envisage)
    7. A Day Like Any Other (Un Jour Comme Un Autre)
    8. A Violent Poison That's What Love Is (Un Poison Violent C'est Ça
    L'amour)

    Moins)

    Intoxicated Women (On Sale)

    It has taken 20 years for Mick Harvey to resume his project of
    translating Serge Gainsbourg's songs into English, and following
    June's release of Volume 3, Delirium Tremens, Mick Harvey has now
    announced the final in the series, Volume 4, Intoxicated Women.


    Intoxicated Women contains many duets and songs written by
    Gainsbourg, mostly during the 60s, in a period where he was
    focusing his songwriting on singers such as France Galle, Juliette
    Greco and most famously, Brigitte Bardot.


    Mick Harvey explains, "After the initial recordings for Delirium
    Tremens, JP Shilo and I continued investigating the duets and female
    songs, many of which were unknown to me. So it became a voyage of
    discovery into quite a lot of material I hadn't heard before. There are
    even a couple of songs for which the only versions existing from the
    60s are from TV performances Serge gave." ["The Drowned One" (La
    NoyÉe) and "Wolfy Teeth" (Dents de Lait, Dents de Loup)]


    The album opens with a stunning version of "Je T'aime (Moi non
    plus)" - here titled "Ich Liebe Dich (Ich Dich Auch Nicht)" - rendered
    in the sexiest German imaginable by the chanteuse Andrea Schroeder
    and culminates with "Cargo Cult," the closing track from the classic
    Melody Nelson album. In between, we are treated to a smorgasbord
    of Gainsbourg gems in English (with a bit of Khmer thrown in).

    Toujours

    Toujours, the first solo record from Brazilian Girls co-founder,
    Sabina updates the classic YÉ-YÉ music that was exploding
    in France, Italy and spain in the early '60s with international
    pop grooves. Imagine Nico and serge Gainsbourg having
    cocktails. As matter of fact when asked about Toujours,
    sabina says, "I want to bring people together, make them
    mingle, dance, sing and discuss, that's what life really is."
    The New York Times says it's "Hard to imagine a better
    poster girl for polyglot New York pop" and rolling stone calls
    sabina simply, "glamorous." Toujours rediscovers sabina's
    unique voice, anthemic songwriting and her signature multilingual story telling.

    People Problems

    Oh No Oh My writes songs that beat down your senses and fill up your boots with a feeling like you've just gotta, at the very least, move. The band jokingly describes their music as sexy indie which is what you might expect from an Austin-based foursome who cite Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson, Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space and Nico's Chelsea Girls as influences on their second full-length album People Problems.



    Multi-instrumentalists Daniel Hoxmeier, Joel Calvin, Greg Barkley and Tim Regan showcase a relaxed, effortless feel and pull no punches, anything goes strategy (Pitchfork) on 12 melodically driven tunes that range from winsome plaints to slightly off-kilter rockers, including seven tracks with hauntingly beautiful strings.



    Oh No Oh My collaborated with sound engineers Jeff Byrd (Spoon, John Vanderslice) and Brad Bell (Spoon, Meat Puppets) in recording People Problems, the follow-up to 2008's Dmitrji Dmitrji EP. The album was recorded in the studio of Spoon drummer Jim Eno and at Hoxmeier's Sugarcube studio (named after the Yo La Tengo song).

    Caramel


    Limited, Hand-Numbered First Edition LP


    New Zealand via Paris/London pop sprite Connan Mockasin
    follows up the widely acclaimed oddball-psych of 2010s
    Forever Dolphin Love. Caramel boasts a unique brand of
    mutated, lustrous soul that was almost wholly self-recorded
    over a month in a Tokyo hotel room. Described by Clash
    Music as "a true cosmonaut of inner space," the new album
    explores different regions of Mockasins singular galaxy,
    guided by his truly adventurous songwriting that favors
    reconfigured pop structures with a skewed funk sensibility. If
    Caramel wasnt enough, Mockasin has also been writing more
    material for Charlotte Gainsbourg after penning the exquisite
    Out Of Touch for the actress/singers 2012 mini-album,
    Stage Whisper. Its another sign that Mockasin is going
    places, but at his own pace - just as Caramel suggests the
    process of melting and taking on a new shape, a new taste.
    That is the true sound of Connan Mockasin.


    "[Caramels] dreamy grooves sound like something Prince might
    make, were he on strong prescription tranquilisers - in a good
    way, of course"
    - The Guardian


    "Mockasins a more ambitious songwriter than his sleepy
    demeanor would sometimes suggest"
    - Pitchfork


    " a fascinating headtrip from start to finish "
    - Death and Taxes

    Soy Sauce

    Nacional Records is excited to announce the vinyl release of Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) critically acclaimed,
    DJ-favorite albums 'Politico,' 'Pinata,' 'Mejico Maxico and 'Soy Sauce.'


    Their third album traverses Camilo Lara's wild musical imagination with a witty sense of humor for good effect - whether it's converting the traditional sounds of cumbia to a full on electronic dance track, paying tribute to J Dilla and Biggie with Mexican sonidos, or singing a love song as if Serge Gainsbourg had spent time in the Mayan jungle. Special guests include Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys), Mexican pop star Paty Cantu, Joselo Rangel (CafÉ Tacuba), and Brazilian singer Pat C.


    M.I.S. tours the world performing at major festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza, with a wide range of
    high-profile television and videogame uses, including HBO 'Entourage' & 'East Bound & Down,' as well as
    'Californication' and videogames like EA Sports' 'FIFA' and the new 'Grand Theft Auto V', for which he curated
    one of the radio stations 'East Los FM.'


    The sound of old Mexican cumbias, boleros and mariachi tunes scrambled with samples, effects and beats.
    - NEW YORK TIMES


    Camilo Lara works the electro-dance scene like the James Murphy [LCD Soundsystem] of Latin America.
    Think Hot Chip visiting the Buena Vista Social Club; think traditional samples with bells and beats; think a
    sweaty indie-dance party. - CMJ

    The Ghost Who Walks/Stolen Roses

    Karen Elson's The Ghost Who Walks marks the debut solo release from the British singer/songwriter. Her transformation from fashion's favorite redheaded ingÉnue to beguiling chanteuse has been something of a slow burn. In 2003 she provided vocals for a version of Robert Plant's ''Last Time I Saw Her'' and in 2006 she recorded an English language version of ''Je T'Aime..Moi Non Plus'' (''I Love You... Me Neither'') with Cat Power for a Serge Gainsbourg tribute album, but her main musical outlet has been as a founding member of New York City cabaret The Citizens Band, a downtown collective of musicians, performers, artists and acrobats whose lively Weimar-esque performances have enjoyed successful theatrical runs of their politically thematic shows.


    Writing almost exclusively in the sanctuary of a closet in her bedroom, Karen's songwriting blossomed. A fledgling songwriter might naturally be nervous to play their work for a spouse but for Karen the trepidation was exacerbated by her husband's own talent. It took many months of cajoling for Karen to play Jack White her songs but his reaction was immediate: let's get into the studio.


    Karen has already won accolades for her stunning voice, but The Ghost Who Walks is still bound to surprise those who've never seen her perform with her cabaret troupe. The songwriting is especially impressive and, as something of a music obsessive since an early age, Karen sites a long list of influences and inspirations, including Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Sandy Denny, Opal and Rain Parade. The track The Ghost Who Walks, also the title of her forthcoming album, is a haunting murder ballad but the title came from a high school nickname which Karen endured before embarking on her fashion career. It's an apt title for an elegant and haunting album.

    Various Positions

    Recorded with vocalist Jennifer Warnes, Various Positions (originally released in the U.S. in February of 1985 by independent label Passport Records) is a stunning return to form for the 'Lord Byron of Rock n Roll.' Cryptic and raw, Various Positions is an eclectic set ranging from the Gainsbourg-esque pop ballad of Dance Me To The End Of Love to the all-time classic Hallelujah.

    The Good Feeling Music Of Dent

    Dent's unique vocal style - part crooner, part falsetto, and all showman - reflects the influences of some of his favorite singers (Prince, Serge Gainsbourg, and Lee Hazlewood to name a few). His love of various song styles results in a unique combination of ukelele, drums, pedal steel, violin, horns, and bass. One second his songs hint at Brazilian tropicalia, the next a 50s barbershop quartet or an early 20th century country swing.

    Liasons

    Bronx duo Pigeons wade closer to the edge of ambitious pop provocations with their third LP, Liasons. Here we find the band in the midst of an enormous creative leap; the psychedelic chanson moves of previous releases now cohabit with spacious westcoast art-blues and wistful cosmic folk tunes, invoking Catherine Ribeiro, Brigitte Fontaine and Opal. Pigeons singular approach to structure, arrangements and production techniques, mirrored by the willful license in spelling Liasons, culminate with Wednesday Knudsen and Clark Griffin lacing their songs with flute, saxophone, echo, drum machines and languid guitar lines. Includes two songs in French, one of which is a take on Laisse Tomber les Filles by Serge Gainsbourg.

    Various Positions

    Leonard Cohen is indubitably one of the most legendary and successful singer-songwriters from the '60s. However, his label at first refused to release 'Various Positions', his seventh studio album, saying Look, Leonard; we know you're great, but we don't know if you're any good.


    The success of the album proved them wrong, giving us one of his most beloved and arguably his most covered song 'Hallelujah', along other gems such as 'Heart With No Companion' and the Gainsbourg-esque 'Dance Me To The End Of Love'.


    This is a nice addition to the rest of Cohen's releases on Music On Vinyl.

    Dust Lane

    Yann Tiersen, already a major performer in his native France and throughout Europe, makes his ANTIâ€and official U.S. debut with Dust Lane. Best known here for his soundtracks for arthouse hits Amelie and Goodbye Lenin, Tiersen is a classically trained composer, whose arresting scores combine folk song, French impressionism, and avant-garde elements into vast emotional landscapes. For Dust Lane, Tiersen has created a cinematic orchestral pop record that recalls the swagger of classic Serge Gainsbourg, the bravura of early Eno, and the faded musicâ€hall grandeur of Brits like Pulp and Divine Comedy. Veering from sunny folk inspired songs to full choir workouts, Dust Lane is ambitious in the way albums used to be in the early '70s: an auspicious U.S. arrival for a new artist.

    Eyelid Movies

    Phantogram's music sounds like it's made by a band from the city. Electronic loops, hip-hop beats, shoegaze, soul, and pop each find its way into their songs. Unexpectedly, the band doesn't live and work in a major urban center, but rather calls the town of Saratoga Springs, NY home. Despite the cultural influence of local Skidmore College (where fellow beat-experimenters Ratatat formed) Saratoga isn't exactly teeming with fans of J. Dilla, My Bloody Valentine or Serge Gainsbourg. Using various samplers, tapes, records, synths, drums, and both percussive and stringed instruments, Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, the duo that make up Phantogram have allowed their natural surroundings and metropolitan influences to mix, resulting in brilliant, unusual recordings that are beautiful yet hard, dreamlike yet substantial, danceable yet smart.

    World Garage

    Inspired by Bollywood, a trip to Morocco, and Serge Gainsbourg, Angelo Spencers second full-length World Garage brings armloads of new instruments and the flavor of exotic locations to a compilation of songs that amount to more than just an album, but an experience of wildness. Hearing Spencer transition from English to French, from guitar to hand percussion, and from soft singing to auto tuned screaming, its easy to close your eyes and imagine that youre running barefoot through the soft grass of, somewhere. Somewhere else.


    Backed by local musicians Ben Kapp, Karl Blau, Clyde Petersen, with guest vocals by Rebecca Redman (from the band Watercolor paintings), World Garage began as a bundle of unfinished songs that Spencer played for everyone, along with a mixtape of Algerian, Moroccan, and Bollywood selections meant to serve as inspiration for how he wanted the finished album to sound; from the sounds of it, it did the trick.
