Montréal is a hotbed these days for forward-thinking music. Marie Davidson is a local mainstay, a member of Essaie Pas, Les Momies de Palerme, & Hotel Monochrome, but on her self-titled debut still manages to take an adventurous turn. Cold electronics ride shotgun with minimal, stripped-down beats providing the ideal counterpoint to Davidson's always potent vocal delivery.

Half sung, half spoken, and all in French, Davidson's vocals ride darkly along the same current as Nico's, twisting obtuse melodies through synthetic cracks. "Ma vie sans toi" is steeped with rhythmic stomp and electronic flourishes while her voice rises in confident detachment, as with words read from a book; the bewitching effect of a true chanteuse, which Davidson surely is. The only instrumental cut on the album, "L'unique" looms like a menacing spire in the distance, swimming in Carpenter-esque soundtrack tones. The album ends with "A l'interieur", a seven-minute long excursion through cavernous synth echoes that still manages to stand out through every listen. Taken together, Marie Davidson's debut is a surreal document, cryptic but full of endless promise.
