A comparison with Marc Collin's Nouvelle Vague is very obvious: Severin, an eighties-obsessed multi-instrumentalist, works with 14 girls from different countries to make a candycoloured popalbum. Only Severin chose not to cover a lot, but write his own songs (mostly). The result, the album Cheesecake, is VERY fillessourires-friendly. Most girls he worked with, like Mai, La Fiancée (pictured) and Lippie, I never heard of before. In fact the only name that rang a bell was Constance Verluca. On Dailymotion, you can see videos of them working together in the studio. The album is available on download now, after summer on cd.
Severin & La Fiancée - Les lignes de la main (VERY gainsbourgian, this one)
