New studio album, only released in France. Includes collaborations with Sonic Youth, Archie Shepp and others. "Fontaine sticks to her 90s strategy of selective collaboration with younger musicians and producers, injecting her sound with appropriate raï rhythms and textures of a new North Africa. This time her chosen few come from the indie diaspora, including singer M, the rock group Noir Désir, producers Sound Orama and emo-pop group Les Valentins. More surprising are her non-French collaborators: saxophonist Archie Shepp and longtime admirers Sonic Youth. The best tracks mirror the loose sparseness that characterized Fontaine's classic 70s albums, but without aping their specific avant ethnic tonalities. Her two collaborations with Sonic Youth, with deft mixes courtesy of Jim O'Rourke are among the most successful. Regardless of all the album's stylistic leaps and its inevitable lapses, Fontaine's voice has the strength and emotional resonance to make itself heard above the clamour of assume modernity." -- Alan Cummings/The Wire.
