Filled with outstanding melodies, rich arrangements and unmistakable voice of Philémon Cimon, a new album from the Montreal-based artist is a perfect cure for this time of year’s needs.
There’s much of classic songwriting inspirations among 11-track that make up “Les femmes comme des montagnes”, but you’ll quickly also notice there’s been a lot of jazz in Cimon’s music education, and possibly some musicals as well.
All of this makes an enjoyable album from the first listen, but every new spin will show you something new in the (French) lyrics, rich arrangements, and Cimon’s distinctive vocals. All of this making one of the best Québécoise releases of the year.
