More charming evidence of the new international hippie vibe (see Cibelle and Ane Brun), young French pop chanteuse Keren Ann teams up with Icelandic pal Bardi Johannsson (Bang Gang) for Lady & Bird, a queer little concept record about young spirits in grown-up bodies. It conjures ’60s folk-pop optimism with shimmering harmonies, gentle guitars, and an undercurrent of darkness, notably on a coolly pretty Lou Reed number (”Stephanie Says”) and a cover of the theme from M*A*S*H, that’s pure French existentialism.
