Camille is best known in the UK for her 2005 album "Le Fil" (The Thread), in which every song is built on one continous note running through the recording. She also sung on the first Nouvelle Vague CD. However, Le Fil is not her debut release; in 2002 she released "Le sac des filles". Unlike "Le Fil" the record uses conventional song structures, but unusual elements remain, for example the apparent crockery fight that breaks out halfway through "Les Ex". (mp3)
The song features on her 2006"Live Au Trianon" CD, losing the crockery and flute line in favour of beatboxing and piano: the CD gets a UK release in July according to play.com
