Hélène Renaut – "Spring Wind" / "Tiny Specks Of Delight"

Local songwriter Hélène Renaut just released the Tiny Specks Of Delight EP on Kitten Charmer. According to the artist: [T]he songs on Tiny Specks Of Delight encapsulate a certain idea of the West Coast sound - breezy and open - while offering a reflection on that eternal process of falling in and out of love - each song centering around a different point along love's roller coaster of learning and liberation. Enjoy two of the EP's songs below. To celebrate the EP's release, Renaut performs alongside The Moore Brothers and Eight Belles at the Make-Out Room on Sunday, October 14th. [...]

Video: Helene Renaut – "The Deer Convention"

In late June, San Francisco-by-way-of-France singer/songwriter Helene Renaut recently released the video for her beautiful, meditative song "The Deer Convention" - the title track off her 2011 album. Intentionally grainy in the way classic 50's home videos were, the project was shot by local film-maker Zach Von Joo. Renaut is ecstatic with the finished product: The result is stunning, dreamy, strange and like a dream dreamt in the silent movie era. I am so pleased with this collaboration - the aesthetics and analog approach match that of the recording, and Zach's edit has a remarkable way of following and complementing [...]

Hélène Renaut – “Bumblebee”/Show Tonight

Hélène Renaut's many musical talents have led her to involvement in a number of different local projects over the years. String arrangements and violin work for Papercuts and Willow Willow, piano, violin and vocals for Donovan Quinn, and vocals for Honeycut add up to a lengthy resume, but she's also a very talented Bay Area singer-songwriter in her own right. In June, Renaut contributed "Bumblebee" to Autumn Ferment Records' first Seasonal Sevens split, celebrating the season of summer with some lush psychy folk recorded by Papercuts' Jason Quever. Here's Renaut performing the song at the Make-Out Room, but I'd also [...]
