Great name, Tricot Machine. It’s a duo from Canada, who released their 2nd album last spring. Actually, it’s a trio: Catherine Leduc, Matthieu Beaumont and Matt’s brother Daniel, who writes lyrics. Cat and Matt are a couple. Their music’s labeled as folk – I always think of Steeleye Span then, but the couple agrees with it, so there. Piano, guitar, voice and a few effects, for gentle and happy songs. Similar to Alfa Rococo, Dobracaracol and Saule. Songs you’d want to hear lying on your back in the grass. Funny thing: in almost all songs they use one or two English words, as if they did not know the French ones and smuggled in the English. Best song on the most recent album is L’Ours – that comes with a very creative and funny video (click to watch).
