Yodelice slowly snakes in around your ears like freshly exhaled smoke. Stubbled, bowler-hatted singer-songwriter Maxim Nucci, accompanied by a troupe that also sport top hats, collectively look like Fagin and his band of merry pickpockets from Oliver Twist. Feeling the solitude and morosity of being a struggling musician, Nucci decamped seaside to the south of Spain, and wrenched out an album full of wistful little navel-gazers (Tree of Life, released this month) delivered in a sublime candlelit voice - and in perfect English. First single 'Alone', with it's softly sung, almost whispered, refrain, plus its Latin-flavoured guitar breaks envelopped in an English folk style is a shot over the bows announcing a serious new talent.

Certains parleront de rédemption, de volte-face ou de révolution. D'autres parleront seulement de révélation : voici Yodelice, nouvel artiste. Avec son chapeau melon cabossé, on pense aux silhouettes des mythiques medicine shows qui ont inspiré Tom Waits et Bob Dylan. Avec sa voix limpide dont on sent bien qu'elle a vécu, on pense aux funambules magnifiques qui sortent de leurs guitares des rires d'enfant et des sagesses d'ancêtres - les Cat Stevens, les Ray Lamontagne, les David Crosby... Et on sent aussi chez lui un instinct pop impeccable, capable de lancer avec désinvolture une mélodie neuve qui s'accroche à la mémoire comme si on la connaissait depuis toujours.

Tree of Life - Mercury-Universal France - March 2009



While travelling on the US west coast, close to the Mexican border, Maxim creates a new character : Yodelice. In 2008, he composes his latest album for Yodelice, and records it with Abraham Laboriel (Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton) on drums, Beck's brass section, and his stage buddy Grandgambe on cello. This album is called "Tree of Life" and is due in March 2009.
