Artist: ARESKI/BRIGITTE FONTAINE
Title: LIncendie
Format: LP
Label: BYG
Country: France
Price: $15.00
2016 repress. LP reissue, in gatefold sleeve. "LIncendie is the first collaboration between Areski and Brigitte Fontaine. Its an exceptional album for BYG records. In a perfect symbiosis with Brigitte Fontaines magnificent voice and surrealist texts, Areski creates a minimalist ethno-folk acoustic universe. In the uniquely French dark chanteuse genre, this is a classic. Originally released in 1974." - BYG.

Artist: ARESKI/BRIGITTE FONTAINE
Title: Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Following their groundbreaking collaboration with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Comme à la Radio, Areski and Brigitte Fontaine began recording almost exclusively together as a duo. Originally released in 1973, Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme is their first record billed under both names. Deeply rooted in North African and European folk traditions, the album features evocative vignettes with breezy vocals and minimal accompaniment of classical guitar, strings, and woodwinds. As always, there is a mercurial quality to their lyrics. The title track (translated as “I Do Not Know This Man”) suggests at once Apostle Peters denial and a poetic acknowledgement. On “C’est Normal” Fontaine playfully questions the status quo while Areski offers satirical answers. What makesJe Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme one of their best-loved albums, though, is its remarkable sense of intimacy -- as if Areski and Fontaine beckon listeners into their strange and beautiful world. This first-time domestic release continues Superior Viaducts reissue campaign of Fontaines classic 70s catalog." - Superior Viaduct.
