Bonnie Banane – Statue

BONNIE BANANE

Can't get enough of this new one from Paris hybrid electro-R&B artist Bonnie Banane (somewhere "between Aaliyah and André Rieu"): "ugly/breakup/song" "STATUE" is a fun and very infectious kiss-off to an ex-lover, produced by Banane's regular collaborator Gautier Vizioz...

LAURE BRIARD

Toulouse's Laure Briard just dropped a gorgeous new LP of bright and romantic French pop -- which we've previously compared to Stereolab and the ’60s golden age of vintage French pop -- with sounds ranging from the decidedly psych-rock vibes of tracks like "Que reste​-​t​-​il" and "Dalida", to the shuffling, classic Françoise Hardy feel of gems like "Je Vole" and "Chat"...

Panda Bear takeover: Little Dragon – Paris

LITTLE DRAGON

Here’s a recent one from this Swedish band. I like the singing a lot and really like how they go the extra mile to craft synth sounds. They also don’t seem to let the machines do the work which i can appreciate...

Laure Briard – Révélation

LAURE BRIARD RÉVÉLATION

Here's some elegant new French pop from Toulouse's Laure Briard: "Peut-Etre" + "Ca Va Aller" are perfect breezy Sunday afternoon jams that recall both the poppier side of Stereolab and classic Françoise Hardy vibes, taken from Laure's new full-length Révélation, out today on limited 12" via France's 2000 Records...
