Playlist 6.10.2009

Featured: Minuscule Hey session

Tracks 

 - Dalida: Let Me Dance Tonight
 

- Axel and the Farmers: Dream # 7 

 

A regular collaborator with Barth, Axel and the Farmers sees Axel Concato and his band putting themselves into the hands of Mark Gardener – yes, he of Ride! www.myspace.com/axelandthefarmers

- Bikini Machine: Où Vont Les Cons?
 
 
Another unexpected producer – John Spencer of the Blues Explosion - pops up on the Rennes-based garage/ye-ye group’s new album ‘The Full Album’, which is deliberately rougher round the edges than its predecessor, ‘Daily Music Cooking With…’. Ian Caple does the duties on this one, though. www.myspace.com/bikinimachine
 
- Barel Coppet Et Mister Lof: Jeunesse Vauclin
 
A track from the wonderful 'Tumbélé' compilation on Soundway records, which is reviewed here.
 
- Automatiq: I Want You
 
More from 'Dylan Mania', with an electro-pop take on another Robert Zimmerman classic. Read our interview with Automatiq here. www.myspace.com/automatiq
 
- Benjamin Biolay: La Superbe
 
 
From the forthcoming album of the same name, the latest single from the nouvelle chanson poster boy/ ‘the new Julien Clerc’ TM (Ludovic Merle). www.myspace.com/benjaminbiolay
 
- Françoise Hardy: Que Vas-Tu Faire?
 
 
Available these days as a bonus track on the ‘Entr’acte’ concept album (about an extra-marital one-night stand!), this 1976 single was arranged by none other than Jean-Michel Jarre.
