Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Emilie Simon's ethereal, sing-song version of the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog," the second song on THE FLOWER BOOK (a compilation of songs from her 2006 debut album, VEGETAL, and from her soundtrack work for the movie MARCH OF THE PENGUINS), hints at the artist's complex, genre-bending sensibility. In her independent, expressive D.I.Y. approach, Simon is connected to the punk impulse, yet her overall aesthetic has more in common with female auteurs like Bjork and Kate Bush. Stylistic boundaries are crossed and erased from song to song, while Simon's lovely, unpredictable vocals unfurl like a siren song. Meanwhile, her lyrics, full of mythic transformations and dream-like imagery, help create a self-contained universe that is fragile, hallucinatory, ominous, and alluring.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.94) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he embeds intimate impressions of wood, flowers, and water in her deceptively tuneful songs."
