La Vie D'Artiste (2CD version)

CD (Item 493545) Too Pure (UK), 2007 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 12

A wonderful soundtrack with a definite Stereolab feel – but one that's never too overstated, and which comes across subtly and slowly over the course of a wide number of instrumental tunes! The collaboration between Tim Gane and Sean O'Hagan really shares the best elements of both artists' music in their famous groups – but it also comes across with a simpler feel too – one that's somewhat gentle at times, and which does a great job of exploring the basic melodic elements of the tunes. Some tracks have just a bit of keyboards and rhythms, others have the fuller orchestrations we love in High Llamas albums – and in a way, the lack of vocals here really reminds us of some of the best extended instrumental passages in O'Hagan's majestic pop suites of a decade or so ago. 2CD version features 45 tracks in all – including "Yoko Johnson", "Dans Le Poste De Television", "Le Consecration", "Alice Sur Scene", "Une Star Du Manga", "Metro Boulot Hippo", and "Les Prix Litteraires".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
