Ilo Veyou (the title is actually in English - look at it again) is, like her previous release Music Hole, a mix of the odd, the mischievous, and the beautiful. Her amazingly flexible voice leaps across the octaves (the title track is sung in two different registers, at the same time - you need to hear it to understand what I mean) and across musical styles, incorporating elements of blues/soul belting (My Man is Married), balladry (Wet Boy), and even chanson (La France) mixed with her signature odd instrumentation and beatboxing.
This edition comes with a DVD containing an hour of film illustrating songs from the album. It's quirky, funny, pretentious and well worth the extra cash just to see her in action.
In turns silly, strange, challenging and beautiful, Ilo Veyou is well worth the effort.
I loved it to bits. 'Ilo Veyou' continues her journey into a distinctive
musical world where the possibilities inherent in the human voice are
boundless. That she approaches her art with an utter lack of pretence
is wholly laudable and convincing. This collection of fifteen delightful
songs is reductive in approach, paring back any sense of excess and
delivering something which sounds as fresh as it is enervating. There is
an intimacy in the arrangements which invites us in like old friends to listen.
Singing in both French and English Camille has a truly lovely delivery;
it is a voice which savours every note and every word; a voice which delights
in its own flexibility and capacity to express a wide range of emotions.
The reliance on acoustic instruments gives the music a light and fresh
sense of immediacy but gravitas becomes her too. The haunting song 'She
Was' unfolds against a gently paced guitar and violin obbligato, slowly
gaining in intensity until its full power is released in the final bars.
'Wet Boy', on the other hand, is a simply beautiful folksy melody which
needs no decoration to make its mark. It floats like a leaf on the wind.
The traditional French musical roots of 'Le Berger' delivers yet another of
the project's highlights. A song which would not have sounded out of place as
the entertainment at a Medieval banquet. Wistful and moving in equal measure.
The tiny 'Message' is an utterly charming play-school bon bon and 'La France',
with its waltz-time tongue-in-cheek nationalistic fervour, is hilarious!
The unaccompanied final track 'Tout Dit' employs percussive vocal effects
to accompany the central melody. A cunning and breathtaking conclusion!
It's all about the voice and what a captivating voice it is.

Interesting if only for the one track "Mars is no fun", her unique voice and style carries the rest which are average.Published on 27 Nov. 2011 by Mr. PETER DONNELLY
