Yes, the above photo is of Françoise Hardy; she is just one of the artist covered on White Hinterland’s new five-song (two originals, three covers) French-language EP Luniculaire. I’ve been smitten with Casey Dienel’s voice since her 2006 debut Wind Up Canary, which was only furthered by her latest project, White Hinterland’s Phylactery Factory. Jazz-tinged, with Rickie Lee Jones undertones, this EP makes perfect sense. Also covered: Serge Gainsbourg, Brigitte Fontaine.
