Nouvelle Vague
Bande A Part

Now I have the much talked about album by Nouvelle Vague called Bande a Part. Apparently they sold 200,000 copies of their last album which if they sold them for a pound each would have made £200,000 .. a lot of cash no!. Anyway the thing is they record famous punk and rock tunes and make them all loungy and delicate. They also ...view item »

Brisa Roche
Invisible 1

Brisa Roche is an Californian singer who has spent more than a decade dwelling in France, and the country seems to have rubbed off on her: she has the breathy Francais stylings of a Gainsbourg relative, laid over lush pop ballad orchestration that could almost be a Bond theme at times.

Jay Jay Johanson
Opium

Swedish avant-garde songwriter Jay Jay Johanson brings out his 10th studio album featuring 10 stories set in his own darkened world.
