Laurence Vanay GALAXIES Vinyl Record

Laurence Vanay GALAXIES Vinyl Record
Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of producer and musician Laurent Thibault (Magma). Her debut album "Galaxies" (1974) is pure genius: incredible, spacey "progressive chanson," rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine for pure inventiveness. An album of inconspicuous, sincere beauty, a masterwork of the French progressive music scene, and a Holy Grail for collectors of 70's underground French music. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful. "Galaxies non-chalantly locates an almost exact midpoint between You -era Gong, Brigitte Fontaine, and Françoise Hardy, with attractively naïf French-language vocals negotiating bittersweet melodies and jazzy, cunningly asymmetrical grooves. And the Elysian title track is, in Magma-speak, very "zeuhl." - Record Collector "Thibault never seems to use more instruments than necessary - 1970's sacrilege! - which gives the tracks a relaxed, soothing feel, due in no small part to Thibault's ever-present organ washes, spare piano figures and gentle vocals, as well as her use of acoustic guitar, flute, and hand percussion." - Dave Mandl, The Wire "Since childhood, I improvised and composed songs and instrumental music... it seemed to me that music was the true language of emotions. It was with great difficulty that I managed to record the albums "Galaxies" and "Evening Colours" in very limited time with the means at hand, and with the help of faithful musician friends." - Jacqueline Thibault.
