Dr. Beaf Elise has delivered a very angelic album that is very airy, light and gentle. Her vocals are entirely unique and sit in unusually high octaves that have been spaced out into the distance of the music only to draw you in. The production and mastering has a fantastic story-telling quality with the a perfect balance of instrumentation and synthesised sounds. If you're a fan of Decoder Rings album Fractions, Lenka, Gosling or Julia Stone this album will have you awe inspired. Highly recommend. Favorite track: Picture Book.

about

Gray Hoodie is the debut album from french musician / composer Elise Mélinand. The album, written in Berlin then sequentially recorded throughout various locations in France, was initially inspired by the techniques she was exposed to after being recruited as part of Christina Vantzou's (Kranky / The Dead Texan) Little Prism Ensemble. Her newly adapted recording and composition tool, the laptop, is undeniably the norm today. However, it allowed Mélinand to better visualize her compositions while experimenting with techniques that Gray Hoodie so skillfully showcases. Crafted by Mélinand to tell a story of a friend who gave her a gray hoodie one cold evening. This gray hoodie was a symbol of their friendship and this album is said by Mélinand to be "A way to thank him for everything he gave me". Gray Hoodie showcases Mélinand's childlike voice and legato string work juxtaposed over frenetic experimental beat-work all injected into ten cinematic vignettes that exude the comfort and warmth of a sweatshirt on a cold day.
