Moving Forward, With A Vengeance

Apr 14, 2011

Yann Tiersen couldn’t be happier with his latest album, Dust Lane. His sixth studio album and first for the Anti- label, the eight tracks offer a full-band sound that’s largely performed by Tiersen, and he provides plenty of room for his themes to evolve. It’s a record of remarkable breadth, at times resembling an upbeat Bad Seeds with cinematic scope or Tindersticks with a brighter pop aesthetic, though ultimately it stands simply as one of the more unique releases of the past twelve months.

I suspect there's many an Anglophone listener for whom there's always been something quintessentially "French" about Yann Tiersen. The Breton multi-instrumentalist's brand of orchestral post-rock has haunted the peripheries of the alternative music zeitgeist since the days of Amélie, one of the most successful French cinematic exports of—well, perhaps ever—and a whiff of francité has long since trailed him.

Yann Tiersen has recorded three soundtracks and six studio albums. On stage, he dresses like he’s auditioning for a slot in the Seattle grunge scene, and shreds on the violin as though he long since bested the devil down in Georgia—all whist projecting the carefree, slacker attitude that this all (all being, but not limited to: a sold out venue, U.S., tour, excellent hair) “just happened.” In short—he’s a rock star.

ANTI-

Nov 11, 2010

Yann Tiersen closes his newest album, Dust Lane, with an upbeat guitar and voice tune called "Fuck Me." It's a well-earned, tongue-in-cheek movement for the violinist-turned- composer. With six studio albums and three soundtracks (including 2001 standout, Amélie), Tiersen has made a career out of delivering lush instrumentals while quietly subverting expectations. More
