Alka Balbir

Gorgeous actress slash singer Alka Balbir released a single, on which she (again) sounds a lot like Isabelle Adjani. Which of course is a good thing. There’s a long Lafayette remix of Batards Supreme available (Alka and L collaborated before) plus a slow burning, almost spoken word track with heavy 80s synths (her boyfriend is Gaspard Auge from Justice). Promising, all ‘n all.

New Marike Jager video

Dutch songstress Marike Jager recorded a French version (translated by Fay Lovsky) of her Butterfly song. The video was shot on the Dutch isle of Schiermonnikoog.


Exotica is a French duo, Clara and Julien, who just released an EP. Their music is very 80s, very danceable and because of the Lolita-voiced Clara, also very sexy.

This is a good track too.
