Autour De Lucie - L'échapé belle

My roommate gave me this album when he heard me listening to some old yé-yé singles because he figured I would enjoy other good French language music as well. Turns out I do.

Autour de Lucie takes off like Aimee Mann singing in French, then it morphs into something a little closer to Stereolab. The album is a bit of a tweener when it comes to genre, but that's not a bad thing. Tweeners are only bad when they can't decide what they want to be, and Autour de Lucie knows what they want to be. If you enjoy strong female vocals, crafty songwriting, subtle genre changes within an album, and don't mind a little French in your life, Autour de Lucie may be up your oddly specific alley.
