Intrigued by the cover of this 45? More intrigued if I told you J-C Vannier is behind this, and that’s it’s a very rare find? Go HERE and listen. You won’t be disappointed.
Hello dear Guardian-readers, thanks for checking out Blog Jam, and welcome to FillesSourires. We’re in the middle of counting down the 10 Sexiest Women in French Music Today, tomorrow we’ll publish the number one. Feel free to check out all the posts here, if you want to know more there’s a FAQ. In case you’re wondering if we’re really blogging since 2005, check out our old blog. Hope to see you more often!
On July 14th, I’m dj-ing in Maastricht (Holland), from 12-19h at the ‘plage’ of Café Sjiek, later on across the street in Café Forum, together with Pat le Ket and Mr Perry. See also this (Dutch) site.
Tour de France started yesterday. Usually an opportunity to post a bicycle-mix on this blog (like we did here, and here). It’s a little different this year. If you’re Dutch, you might want to check out the 25 Bestest French Bicycle Songs that FransS and me chose for literary cycling magazine De Muur. Every day during this Tour, website Het is Koers will post one of the tracks. The Spotify-list that goes with it, is here. The pictures was taken from this page.
Jolie mash-up of Jacko’s Beat It and SG’s Comic Strip by the prolific DJ ComaR who already contributed to the superb Je Deteste Serge compilation in 2010. Two tunes obviously made for each other.
It’s a wrap! Bonne Année from FransS, Maks, Sky and me, we hope to see you again next year. The idea was to post one final yearlist, but really, how many Coeur de Pirate-songs do we need to post to convince you she made the best album of the year (okay, well, maybe Sky needs some extra convincing). If you have Spotify, check out this playlist of the bestest songs of 2011.
So on to 2012. In January, we’ll be posting songs that slipped under our radar in the past year. But if something new pops up (a covers album by Olivia Ruiz, for instance) you sure can read about it here too.
Hopes are up high for a new albums by Barbara Carlotti, Céline Mastrorelli (pictured), La Fiancée, Adrienne Pauly, Coralie Clément, Vanessa Paradis, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rose, Valérie Leulliot, Pauline Croze, Marie-Pierre Arthur, Carmen Maria Vega, Amylie, Ariane Moffatt, La Femme and a whole bunch of fresh faces.
