Sebastien Tellier

Released in 2006, Sebastien Tellier's Sessions shows that he, in fact, is still active and makes for a nice set of alternate versions, even though the studio albums are stronger. Lots of the songs selected for the piano, synth, bass & vocals treatment were already arranged with a piano as a foreground instrument on the albums; there are exceptions, however, and it is kind of fun listening to the pseudo-Spanish League Chicanos sung like a heartrending ballad. Sadly, the record gets sort of boring if listened to entirely, since the same formula is being applied to almost every track. However, the last one, Classic, is an entirely new track, held quite recognizably in the style of Tellier's first album, L'Incroyable Vérité, employing no drum machines but instead piano and synth and creating a darker feeling than on Politics. Very nice stuff. I've read rumors somewhere that a new album is expected in 2007; hopefully, this is true. Enjoy Broadway and Classic from Sessions.
