au revoir

this time, it's definitive...

I had a great time sharing you the music i loved, the music i discovered, the music i danced on.
but it takes too much time and work conditions are getting impossible, so i have to let it go, unfortunately...

I hope you enjoyed it as much as i did...
keep discovering great bands, keep supporting artists, keep faith in art !

"prenez soin de vous"


PS: i have a monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to, just give me your e-mail !

Minitel Rose

Minitel Rose is an old kind of french internet, with a lot of porn. But it's also a new french electro band, with 3 guys from Nantes. Quite nice, sounds a bit like the eighties. Friends of Metronomy, and you can hear it !

Buy their album 'the French Machine' on iTunes

Minitel Rose - Continue
Minitel Rose - Business Woman
The Teenagers - feeling better (Minitel Rose remix)

Chet Baker

Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker Jr. (Oklahoma, 23 December 1929 - Amsterdam, 13 May 1988) was a really great American jazz trumpeter and singer. Specializing in relaxed, even melancholy music, Baker was a leading name in cool jazz in the 1950s. Baker's good looks and intimate singing voice established him as a promising name in pop music as well. But his success was badly hampered by his drug addiction, particularly in the 1960s. He died in '88.

covers can suck... or can be great !

two things.

# I'm not there
a movie about the life of Bob Dylan, with Cate Blanchette, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere.
It was overall critically acclaimed last year, and i liked it too. I just found one critical review here.
The Dylan soundtrack is great, but the actual OST-album is a cover album. All artists were supported by The Million Dollar Bashers, an all-star band ( featuring Sonic Youth stars Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, Television guitarist Tom Verlaine, Dylan bassist Tony Garnier, guitarist Smokey Hormel and keyboardist John Medeski)

Cat Power - Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again
Pavement & The Million Dollar Bashers - Ballad Of A Thin Man
My Morning Jacket & Calexico - Goin' To Acapulco
Antony & The Johnsons - Knockin' On Heaven's Door

# BBC Radio 1 - established 1967
Radio 1 was 40 years old last year, and did a cover album :
40 artists have recorded 40 cover versions as part of Radio 1 Established 1967. Each artist was given a different year, and asked to record a track that was a Top 20 hit in that particular year. Some of them remained true to the original version, and others reinterpreted it.

Amy Winehouse - Cupid (Johnny Nash 1969)
Robbie Williams - Lola (The Kinks 1970)
Franz Ferdinand - Sound And Vision (David Bowie 1977)
Editors - Lullaby (The Cure 1989)
Klaxons - No Diggity (Blackstreet 1996)
Hard-Fi - Toxic (britney spears 2004)

+ PS : here's an older post with a lot of great covers.
