Woodkid: Iron EP


Woodkid, aka Yoann Lemoine is a French director/singer/songwriter. His voice is gentle, like Arthur Russell or Nick Drake, but his music is far into the future. Never before have I heard such an ambitious debut in music. There are sophisticated string arrangements as well as electro mixes as cutting edge as anything happening at the moment. Why isn’t there more music out there by this artist? He is shopping around for a U.S. record label and I have no doubt he will make headlines on all the music columns. My only complaint is that there aren't enough tracks for how great it is. This EP will blow your mind. I eagerly await a full length release from this artist, but in the meantime, hunt this down. You will not be disappointed.
