We start our descent on Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano with a mad dash. At 5 minutes after our start, and in this exact moment, we all collectively feel the slightest rumble of the ground, then a larger shaking. Then, the entire ground is jell-o, and we are all sinking in it. Thinking fast, we all absolutely, positively knew what was happening: an eruption.

"We gotta get out of here!" Docky screams at the top of his lungs.

Art pop! It's indie pop for sMaRt people!!!!

Camille delivers a simple yet beautiful art pop album with beautiful instrumentals, accompanied by serene vocals. Nothing on this record is really reinventing the wheel, but it never fails to be relaxing or pleasant on the ears (and it certainly helps that French is just a gorgeous language in general). Overall I wouldn't consider it to be a favorite art pop album of 2017, but it's worth a listen if this sort of lush ... read more

[Location: France]

I remember fondly of a beautiful French pop track "Le Festin" from the movie "Ratatouille".

From the delicate riffs in between the lyrics, to the background singers, to the grand piano. All in this gorgeous french package. And this album carries some of that over. I won't say that songs like "Seeds" and "Je ne mâche pas mes ... read more
[FLIGHT DAYS: DAY 3: France]

This was good, and I cant remember why!

Seriously, I don't know WHY I can't remember this one. Ratatouille songwriter/actor, Hans Zimmor collaborator, multi-platinum scoring and multi award winning singer Camille is no stranger to praise, yet this is the first time I have ever heard her name. Even as a huge Ratatouille fan, you couldn't pay me to say 'Oh, yeah, that's Camille singing that track! OBVIOUSLY!', which is a damn shame, because not only does she have a ... read more
