Nouvelle Vague: 80's new wave meets bossa nova

Nouvelle Vague

One of the delights of last year was discovering the Nouvelle Vague CD.
It’s the project of Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux utilizing a heavenly array of (mainly) French female vocalists. It re-interprets classic new wave tracks of the early eighties, the idea being…

“… to forget the initial punk or new wave background of each song, keep simple fundamental chords, work with young singers who never heard the orginal versions, and make the quality of original songwriting happen in a completely different way.(bossa nova, jazz style and sixties pop)”

Sounds a great idea? Oh my it really is! Tho I'm a total sucker for that bossa nova beat!
Tracks covered include Love Will Tear Us Apart, A Forest, This Is Not a Love Song and Teenage Kicks...
The album can be streamed or purchased as a download here.
Check out the track below, a cover of a tuxedomoon song from their "Holy Wars" album

In A Manner of Speaking (mp3)

To purchase this fine recording go to Norman Records:slapping the thighs of melody!
