Emily Loizeau

Here, you can see a 40 minute concert Emily Loizeau gave a little while back, during which she plays most of her new album Pays Sauvage. A highly anticipated album - Emmy's debut was a treat, and she plays on this album with Thomas Fersen, Moriarty and Herman Dune. If you know those bands, you have an idea how Em sounds right now: freakfolky, with elements from gospel, gypsy-jazz, children's songs and folk (obviously). At times, she reminds me of 10,000 Maniacs/Nathalie Merchant. Not your avarage fille fragile, but if you dig Claire Diterzi, Moriarty, CocoRosie (there is a woman with a beard on the album cover, that's a giveaway) and the like, this is a must-have. The female choir of the song below consists of Jeanne Cherhal, Olivia Ruiz and Nina Morato, btw.
