Music: Dust Lane by Yann Tiersen * * *

John Meagher

Best known for his soundtrack for the Gallic arthouse sensation Amelie, Brittany's Yann Tiersen has delivered a new album which fuses vintage electronic instruments and French folk music. It's a striking combination, although the results are decidedly hit and miss.

The comparatively conventional Dark Stuff showcases the beauty of the accordion, while the monotone vocals of Palestine had me skipping to the next track.

Fuck Me, meanwhile, is both quirkily charming and irritating at the same time. Much like the rest of this sixth album.
