Lobotom is the soundtrack to an imaginary film composed by French singer-songwriter Maud Lübeck.
The album charts the surreal adventures of Emma, a young woman who is charmed by a real estate ad for a house to let on an island.
When she enters the house, she falls through the floor and continues her tour in the haunted basement. She then finds herself in a strange and unusual universe. It is none other than her own body and she wants to take possession of it.
The story, written in French and translated into English and Spanish in the booklet, allows us to see a side to Maud Lübeck that is different to the one in her debut album La Fabrique.
More whimsical and experimental, Lobotom shows a young woman under the influence of Serge Gainsbourg (Melody Nelson era) and Tim Burton.
Lobotom is released in the form of a CD with a 28-page libretto. It is wonderfully illustrated by Damian O'Hara.
