Synth not synth

I'm totally obsessed with this track since I found the LP in a second hand flea market. This is perfection : vocals, lyrics, simple but efficient arrangements, melody. You can find another interesting song on this LP : Simili USA on the A side. It's more "disco" oriented but always with this "boy scout around the fire at the camp" feeling. Know what I mean ?

Etienne Perruchon - Generiques

 photo 56f93e4c-092c-485a-920c-f6c9f99b73b0_zpscef05c29.png

Etienne Perruchon is a french composer who works for the movie industry. This is his first record : a private press (circa 1984) to illustrate the work of a painter named François Sylvand. The tools are not so numerous : DX 7, Fender Rhodes, TR 808 and Casiotone 403. Expect electronic lullabies and some minimalistic synths. Despite the fact that is not so rare, it's quite under the radar...

Fantastic track by the famous french actress produced by Serge Gainsbourg. Nice lyrics, skanking guitar and this "seem to be pitched down" rhythm. This is the original but Ivan Smagghe did a dope edit of this on his self-released A few things from Ivan Smagghe compilation. (Press the "share button" to download the track)

Minimal Compact

Very interesting documentary about the history of the band told by the members and their manager. Plenty of rare live footage. Must see.
