MIXTAPE #6: MARIE DAVIDSON

Marie Davidson seems to be a bit like Forrest Gump, the character in Winston Groom’s book, who turns up at all the key moments in the story.
She always happens to be at the right place at the right time—yet she is never overly zealous, but rather endowed with an unparalleled lightness. She has released records with her band DKMD on Giallo Disco Records, with Les Momies de Palerme on Constellation Records, with Essaie Pas on DFA Records and most recently solo on Citi Trax, Veronica Vasicka’s second label after Minimal Wave Records. It would be difficult to dream up a better label discography. The tracks on this podcast, which Marie Davidson recorded exclusively for Week-End, are all love songs, and many of them on the sadder side of the genre. This is not purely coincidental—the Franco-Canadian from Montreal has a fond relationship with melancholy.

It is not so much that she likes to succumb to it, but that it is, ultimately, a necessary evil in the artistic process. A song such as “Dedicated my Life,” from her current album “Adieux Au Dancefloor,” certainly wouldn’t have been possible without firsthand knowledge of the deep empty chasms that being an artist as well as life itself hold in store. Or expressed another way through the titles of two of Marie’s current songs: “Inferno” and “Good vibes” aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive. These are the songs that inspire Marie Davidson.
