Robert Charlebois-Avec Louise Forestier

Robert Charlebois

Avec Louise Forestier

http://www.mediafire.com/?cbcsdpjgntm

This man ran for president of Canada on the platform that he would do nothing. He may be the only French-Canadian psychedelic folk singer on the planet, except he isn’t French, but just sings in French.

Paradoxes abound, but it doesn’t detract from the music which dwells on cabaret-psych with Charlebois crooning holding it all together. That sounds trite, but this fucker can really croon and engage the chanteuses baking him up on his vocal adventures. There is a song on here called “Dolores” where he even attempts some French bluegrass freakout that deserves points for the mere attempt at this strange new genre. Overall, his voice and semi-sleaze carries it all onto the finish line. A spotty, but extremely entertaining album.

    He is French Canadian, I don’t think he ran for President because Canada doesn’t have a President, but yes, he can sing.
