It's the most conventional thing she's done since her debut, employing a wide range of backing instruments and a greater number of English-language tunes—but that's a relative assessment. Ilo Veyou may be a conservative record for Camille, but it nonetheless sounds like little else being recorded today. The all-vocal excursions include "Bubble Lady," which is unsurprisingly filled with popping-bubble sounds, and the title track rides on a nice pizzicato cello groove. "La France" is an original written in the style of an old-school chanson original, and though it's totally over-the-top I could easily imagine it sung by Edith Piaf. The song I've selected for today's 12 O'Clock Track is the last and leanest cut on the album, featuring only her voice, without any apparent overdubbing. But she makes great use of exhalation to create another compelling texture. Below you can watch the rather mysterious video for "Tout Dit."
