Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of producer and musician Laurent Thibault of Magma. Her debut album Galaxies (1974) is pure genius: almost all instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards of many types, acoustic/electric guitar, even a little Zeuhl bass. There are wordless vocals on many of the tracks, although she occasionally sings in a soft, seductive manner. Incredible, spacey "avant-garde progressive chanson," and a Holy Grail for most collectors of 70's underground French music, rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine for pure inventiveness. Sublime compositions - unique, melancholic and very powerful. Available from 17.01.2014
