From the time when the sun and the moon didn’t have a name, hidden in a garden with statues talking in silence, telling a secret path that leads to the bravest love…
Inspired by the Amish Community, the northern wisconsin sunsets and the indian summer in Belgium, Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier recorded An Age Of Wonder between Belgium and Ohio between July and August 2011, filled with golden summer hazes, voluptuous thoughts, and august storms.

"Edition of 400 on Transparent Green Vinyl*
Je Suis le Petit Chevalier is the nom-de-plume of Belgian songstress Felicia Atkinson.
While she's done a number of releases under her own name, JSPC came into being early in 2011 and has been haunting stereos ever since. "An Age of Wonder" is her best release yet. On "Fever Dunes," the mood is nostalgic. Simple keyboard loops float in the air around a series of minimal beats. Atkinson's vocals emerge from the mist like a beacon leading you somewhere unknown. There's a sadness in the repeating chords that pulls out fragile emotions from the deep end of the ocean.
The pieces ends with the beats picking up steam like a heart racing, eventually overcome by the darkness and left to spiral into the abyss. "The First Forest" picks up where the A-Side leaves off, though with added crunch. Hopeful notes drift out from the washed-out undercurrents of organ and guitar like a distant destination in a sullen landscape. Atkinson is reaching for the top of the mountain as the piece gets more and more oppressive. It's heartbreaking and beautiful, each note carefully considered and left to wallow in the aural murk. "An Age of Wonder" simply goes one step further in proving what a force Felicia Atkinson is. stunning work. - "

about

je suis le petit chevalier

"Félicia Atkinson’s age of wonder has slipped through her fingers, or so beautiful sadness and low-level violence of her work seems to imply. (..) Her commanding if narcoleptic voice carries a sombre, wordless dirge of a tune that drifts above distant twinklings, heartbeat rhythms and a submarine drone that takes a wrong turn down to the bottom of the sea."
The Wire, july issue, #141
