Relaxing Lullabies And Amplified Pop Dreams – GOOD MORNING TV Loves ‘SMALL TALK’

6 July 2021

Band: GOOD MORNING TV
Who: French dream-pop quartet that started as the solo
project of vocalist/guitarist Bérénice Deloire back in 2016

Album: SMALL TALK – debut LP
Released: 18 June 2021 via Géographie Records

Turn Up The Volume: So many moments to play this record. In the morning
when getting out of bed. At noon when taking a break from whatever you’re
doing. In the evening while relaxing on your lazy couch after a tiresome day.
During a candlelight dinner with your beloved one(s).

The overall feel is smooth, dreamy, jazzy, shoegaz-y (Insomniac / Human Comedy
/ Moving Image / Make Me Feel
), although atmospherics catch fire when guitars take
over (Tourism Business Pt.2), or get trippy (Emptiness Overload). The near-whispering, sensual voice of Bérénice Deloire has a calming effect, but frequently she gives room
for guitar-driven electricity that takes certain songs to a more amplified level.
Different soundscapes for different moods.

Want some references: Mazzy Starr, Françoise Hardy, The Sundays, Portishead, Cocteau
Twins
. Enough reasons not to watch TV but to start up your stereo for some small talk.

Singles: Insomniac / Entertainment

COURTNEY BARNETT Is So Great When It Comes To ‘SMALL TALK’…

Brand new sonic impulses

4 October 2018

Last May COURTNEY BARNETT released her second, splendid longplayer Tell Me How You Really Feel. And today she revealed an unreleased song from those LP sessions. SMALL TALK is as good as anything that turned up on the album. It’s an entrancing
five-and-a-half-minute jam starting with Barnett having a casual conversation with an imaginary companion and ends with an utterly cool guitar/organ jam. She’s a great storyteller, a magnetic guitar player and she never wrote/writes a dull song. Enjoy here…
