Fabienne Delsol - walking that fine line between Retro and The Next Thing.

It perplexes me that an artist like Fabienne Delsol isn't more well known over here in the States, even among the underground, than she is. Not that she's a complete unknown here, but that she hasn't gotten the recognition she deserves or that she's gotten in the UK and the rest of Europe in recent years.

Although I'm sure, like everything, time will only tell.

In the meantime, here is a recent single featuring Fabienne and her backup band The Bristols, a UK experimental/retro group who has every nuance and flourish perfectly covered in this track, When My Mind Is Not Live. Even down to a mono mix, it makes you wonder if this really isn't some long-lost track from 1967. But no. It's from 2008.

But you can pretend if you want to.
