Them There Records presents an essential vinyl edition of the highly accomplished debut album from Le Fruit Vert -‘Passiflore’.
Organ swells interact with angular tones and propulsive pulses throughout, as the duo cast intricate, vocal-led narratives that develop into a unique form of unearthly baroque-pop experimentalism. ‘Passiflore’ reflects two independent artists engaged in a dynamic synergy with a singular vision and a profound understanding of their craft. A meticulous debut that is perched on the threshold of psychedelic refrain and spectral hypnosis.
Originally released in 2013 on cassette via Montreal based label Los Discos Enfantasme . ‘Passiflore’ is an album steeped in sedate vocals, layered electronics and field recordings. Portrayed as the "priestesses of melancholy" Andrea-Jane Cornell and Marie-Douce St-Jacques have since released their follow up record ‘Paon Perdu’ through three:four records and recently toured Europe with labelmates Eric Chenaux and Eloïse Decazes.
‘Passiflore’ was recorded at home in Montreal, Canada between January and May 2013. The new edition has been remastered for vinyl at Grey Market Mastering by Harris Newman (Sourdure, Midget!)
released July 20, 2018
Le Fruit Vert are Andrea-Jane Cornell and Marie-Douce St-Jacques

Surrounded by green instruments and objects, Tomoko Sauvage's duo with Francesco Cavaliere responds to the placid environment with a delicate, but curious touch. Leaves become brushes, synths softly trill like river dolphins, fluorescent water droplets jump lily pads… mood-altering music that transports the mind to a green fantasia. https://www.vikingschoice.org/archive/vikings-choice-guide-to-bandcamp-friday-aug-2021/ Lars Gotrich
