Nearly full venue for the first day of french festival "les femmes s'en melent".
First Mi and L'au. They play a 40 mn set without stopping or saying a word to the public.cSome songs from their recent album, some other songs, all that mingled with a long acoustic instrumental. Apparently many people found it pretentious and boring. For me, it was beautiful.
After that, Anna Ternheim has no problem filling her lust for adoration. Standard pop/folk with a cute accent, a voice somewhere between Isobel Monteiro and Sarah Bettens and childish lyrics. With the right push from her label, she could be big. Doesn't mean she's any good...
Finally Vashti Bunyan gave us a short set and seemed quite embarassed by the great reception she received. But 30 mn is more than enough when it's so good !
With her 4 musicians, she gave us folk at the same time complex and simple with a voice as fragile as it is powerful !
And she showed the previous acts that art doesn't mean obtue and pop doesn't mean vulgar.
A great lady !
