LION 611 CD 

***A reissue of the best and last album from 1960s/'70s French “antique folk”legend EMMANUELLE PARRENIN. Released in 1976, the record seems to alternate between a cosmic take on an ancient Breton sound, and delicate, multi-tracked ballads-ranging from sounds that would not be out of place on an Ash Ra Tempel album to elements of traditional French folk music (including homemade instruments) that are just as exotic. Certainly, the avant-garde edge lurking beneath the simple folkiness puts in mind the explorations of Brigitte Fontaine with her sometime musical voyager Areski; there are also suggestions of the pastoral caranavserai aesthetic of Vashti Bunyan, as well as the multi-track sensuality of Linda Perhacs. But Parrenin has her own style, her music has its own deeply ethereal quality, and the album itself has its own magic spell to cast that renders comparison with other albums unimportant in the end.
