Aware of B'ee's interest in French language and culture, Les Disques du 7ème Ciel suggested that they collaborate on the release of a record based on French song.
Great EP, recomendation straight from the heart.

This EP it’s a surprise to me: it’s almost entirely sung in French and structurally simpler than the previous B’Eirth’s works.
The real gem of the album is Life's Lace, a song with a familiar Nick Drakeian feel. The rest – like lullabies - proceed at a slower pace.
Overall B'Eirth's French singing sounds warmer and calmer and I think doesn’t affect anyway the hard core B'Eirth's appreciators. Nice and Wyrd!
Thank you

A fantastic album, the french cover "le temps de vivre" is emotionally enormous.
Thank you
