Some French offerings this week!
Not much is known of this band, but from this EP of theirs I found, (and as hinted from their name, I suppose) their music seems very folk-rock, rather than typical Ye-Ye. With the pianos in the background, somehow they seem to echo Gerry and The Pacemakers.
Les Pionniers - Les Emigrants
Another French singer we all know little about is Christie Laume. According to the Ye Ye Girls Website, and this Japanese site, Christie released two EPs. This is a truly weird but fun song. What a riot of different instruments!
Christie Laume - Agathe Ou Christie
Available on Femmes de Paris, Vol. 2.
Queen of Ye-Ye, France Gall is someone we need no introduction to. A very dreamy song, which I think is one of her best!
