Carbon Airways :: Atomic Is In My Mind

Carbon AirwavesWhat do you get when you mix Euro-electro pop, punk, and the inevitable angst and energy of two teenagers? You get Carbon Airways.

I first heard Carbon Airways when I got an email from their label, Bad Life, about the release of their Razor Edge EP. I was completely enthralled by the French teenage brother and sister combo of Enguérand and Éléonore Fernese. The frenetic energy bleeds through your speakers and permeates your mind. I can imagine that seeing this act live would be a psyche altering event.

This “preview” video below of “Atomic Is In My Mind” showcases exactly what I’m talking about.

Tell Me A Story….about frogs

M83A few months ago I came across “Raconte-Moi Une Historie” from M83 and at the time I thought this was a perfect soundtrack for Froglix Radio! Then a few weeks ago I came across this apropos slideshow to accompany the song. Too good to not share.

By the way, if you aren’t familiar with M83, perhaps you should know more about this musical project led by Anthony Gonzalez. Hailing from the coastal town of Antibes France, their better known tracks include “Midnight City” and “We Own The Sky”. And perhaps my favourite is “Reunion”. The opening has a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it… maybe Howard Jones-ish? There’s probably a better match but that’s what came to mind first. Either way, if you like the ethereal side of music then you’ll enjoy the lush synth strings and layered textures offered by M83.

Take Your Moon Shoes to Boogie Land

MoonShoes - BoogielandMaybe it’s nostalgia, but I love watching the legendary Soul Train dance line. Those guys were avant-garde trendsetting pre-hipster hipsters and utter fashion freak show train wrecks all at the same time. And now the line has a new soundtrack thanks to MoonShoes (aka Gilles Paulet). Frenchman Gilles Paulet truly is the author and finisher of this funky disco soul hymn entitled “Boogieland” acting as producer, composer, arranger, performer and mixer. So pull out your platform shoes, strut your bell-bottomed trousers and don your clashing-patterned top and get your groove on as you take a ride back to the ’70s to find your inner funk.
