Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Mégumi Satsu is a Japanese woman who’s been living in Paris a long time and sings in French on her new cd.She has a highly theatrical style with some great songs on this recording. I get a real Grace Jones/ Amanda Lear vibe from her, something to do with her stylised vocals and the disco beats she uses.
Bornéo nouba might set sophisticated dance floors alight, and Satsu’s vocals are deep and cool.
Aprés ma mort sees her singing of well, death to a catchy and very disco backing. The front cover depicts her dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs.
It’s all done very tongue in cheek so the effect is not quite as disturbing as it might have been.
Ma petite annonce is laid back and has one of Satsu’s haughty, cool vocals. The mood is dreamy and surreal.
Jetlag dans mon enfer repeats a song from a previous album. The tune is soft but very suggestive like much of this rewarding album.
