A lovely self-production, already at its 2nd edition.
The cover artwork makes it look like a NES videogame. But, it is not. Not exactly. Press notes tell it is about a "Little Knight, starting off in life with the kind perils one would expect of a young knight. He gets attacked by a giant, his childhood sweetheart, the Princess, gets kidnapped and he must face his biggest fears in order to save her."
These three french guys - Olivier Piotte (Drums, backing vocals and gadgets), Renaud Forestié (Illustrations, backing vocals and jokes) and Andy Richards (Guitars and Vocals) - are story tellers. One-story teller.
Said that, the whole album is loaded with disarming cuteness, gently acoustic, with lot of magic nostalgia graced by a sort of melodica keyboard, I guess, or something playing similar. Subtle guitar arpeggio. Whispered vocals. Something you can during a car travel - perfect companion for your trip. A perfect, delicate indie folk album. Their third one. Never able to reach that certain excellence of being memorable, frankly, but fully worth respect such it's shaped with sincere poetry and tints of charm (from Fools, Don't Listen To A Word I Say to The Victory Of Buckets And Doors).
