Mi and L'au | Reviewit is both warm and glacial Jan 1, 2006
Once upon a time there was a gorgeous model called Mi and a photogenic, bohemian musician called L'au. They fell desperately in love in Paris and fled to a snowy forest in Finland, where they lived happily ever after, making beautiful music. Mi and L'au is the austere fruit of their labour, and it is both warm and glacial, minimal and atmospheric, horribly pretentious and heart-breakingly tender. The fairground gothic of 'They Marry' sets the standard, but as befits the music of a madly-in-love couple, some tracks are stiflingly intimate " 'Nude' ('I welcome you nude') will be a source of great embarrassment to their kids in 10 years' time.
