hinah022 - Arman Méliès

"Le Magasin Pittoresque"

We literally fell for Arman Méliès's debut folky and delicate mini-lp "Le Long train lent et les beaux imbéciles". Above all he has this impressive gift to mix two usually incompatible fields: lyrics in French and deeply American music.

hinah022 - Arman Méliès "Le Magasin Pittoresque"
"Le Magasin Pittoresque is a revue of the XIX th century, full of obsolete illustrations and ingenious articles. An improbable kind of Reader Digest, more poetical, meanwhile. Discovering this curious revue during the recording of this EP, I realised that Le Magasin Pittoresque would be the appropriate title for this incongruous collection of bizarre lullabies and strange covers. Welcome to the magic theatre".
