Emile Simon’s fourth album, The Big Machine, is the glorious sound of New York as seen through the eyes of French sonic auteur Emilie Simon. After living there for two years, Emilie has recorded her tribute to the city: a Dreamland with its many faces cast as a Rainbow. Almost entirely sung in English, The Big Machine acknowledges that Emilie is an artist who recognises no borders. Recording in New York for the first time, rather than her home studio in Paris, Emilie has furthered her boundaries by collaborating with musicians like Kelly Pratt and Jeremy Gara of Arcade Fire for The Big Machine. In France she has been a multiple award winner since 2004. Her soundtrack for La Marche de l'Empereur – the original version of March Of The Penguins – was nominated for a César, the French equivalent of an Oscar. Now, from her adopted American base, the secret is out. New York has discovered Emilie, with her intimate shows there attracting the attention of The New Yorker. The New York Post placed The Big Machine’s Rainbow in the top thirty of its top 209 songs of 2009. Vogue has noticed Emilie too, calling her “extremely stylish.” Blender magazine said she was “shamelessly chic.” In a sneak preview review of the French release, MOJO magazine said The Big Machine has “a lustrous popiness. Vocals swoop like a supple, perky Kate Bush, Rainbow moves with the sure-footedness of Rihanna, the sinuous electro pulse of the single Dreamland is captivating and no melody is less than memorable.” Emilie Simon is no longer for France alone.
