Sébastien Tellier - 'L'Aventura' Sebastien Tellier Tickets

French jack-of-all-trades Tellier, produces a lurid concept album as cheesy as a Camembert Cravat

Sébastien Tellier - 'L'Aventura'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 14, 2014
  • Label: Record Makers
8 / 10 As the World Cup reaches its sharp end, what better tribute than a lurid, kitschy concept album about an imagined childhood spent in Brazil by a French auteur who depicts himself naked on a giant bird of paradise on the cover? Sébastien Tellier has always done things his own way, from his unchanging image — think Serge Gainsbourg at Altamont — to representing France at Eurovision in 2008 and actually getting away with it, and here he delivers a 14-minute psychedelic disco odyssey ('Comment Revoir Oursinet?') about missing his teddy bear. The rest of 'L'Aventura', his sixth album, is deep-pile funk ('Sous Les Rayons Du Soleil'), bouncing electro-soul ('Aller Vers Le Soleil') and as cheesy as a Camembert cravat. Fantastique, then.
