A few weeks ago, while listening to Lolo’s awesome covers mix on Spotify, I went on a rant about some of my favortie covers, particularly a collection of Depeche Mode songs reworked by Sylvain Chauveau in 2005. Part of the rant was wishing the album was released on vinyl (it was only CD and digital). A week later while browsing through upcoming releases, my jaw dropped as I saw a listing for Down To The Bone, Chauveau’s brilliant covers collection, finally on vinyl. Synchronicity is a thing, and it’s marvelous. So now you and I can own some softer, yet somehow darker takes on Depeche Mode favorites, which in my opinion, are some of the most thoughtfully-arranged cover versions ever made. Take a listen to the entire thing via the link below and check out this week’s in-stock list below that. -MLE

Sylvain Chauveau & Ensemble Nocturne – Down To The Bone: An Acoustic Tribute To Depeche Mode LP
Listen: Full album
“Just 10 years ago, Down to the Bone was released by Les Disques du Soleil et de L’Acier – a Depeche Mode tribute album on which Sylvain Chauveau sang on record for the first time. 11 tracks that the musician reclaims in the sober style he is known for leaving just the bare bones of the originals. With the Nocturne ensemble, Chauveau redefines the contours of these hits we all know to provide an intimate and highly personal vision. This critically acclaimed album is an essential records for lovers of Chauveau’s minimalist works (‘The Black Book of Capitalism’, ‘Nocturne Impalpable’) as well as Depeche Mode’s hardcore fans. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the album’s release, Ici d’ailleurs reissue it on CD and for the first time as a vinyl LP, with a new artwork. A decade and several albums later Down to the Bone still sounds as one of Chauveau’s biggest success, not only a simple tribute which means taking distances from the original tracks. Pop inspiration is still there, but these pieces bring a mediative, even melancholic touch through an acoustic treatment which offers an unique contemplative experience. Let be sure that the care provided to these eleven elegant tracks was the best way for Chauveau to declare his love to Depeche Mode music.”
