I run into Filles Sourires on places (records, actually) where I expect them the least. Take the upcoming double compilation by dubtecho-heroes Swayzak. The first song on Route de la Slack is their gentle remix of Acoustiques Paralleles by French triphop-duo Quark. Great song. Not only that, singer Valerie Tong Cuong is a well-known writer in France (and her books are translated to Swedish and Norwegian as well). She writes modern novels on 'the struggle of life', her last novel is set in the financial world. This first encouter with Valerie TC is promising, I will investigate further.
