Tellier takes us on an ambitious audio-adventure
Few of us are strangers to the drug-induced concept album, but just how many records implore the listener to join a ‘community’ (in this case Alliance Bleue) led by hirsute Gallic prodigy Sébastien Tellier? After the deliciously tawdry electro-romp of 2008’s ‘Sexuality’, the eccentric chanteur tackles spirituality on ‘My God Is Blue’. But fear not, as the disco-tastic ‘Cochon Ville’ video will attest, he’s still a bit of a perv. Sébastien invites you to follow him, like a sexy David Koresh, and with tunes like ‘Sedulous’, ‘Pepito Bleu’ and the aforementioned ‘Cochon Ville’ (‘pig city’ en Anglais), the call might just prove irresistible.
