Gotan ProjectLa Revancha Del Tango (US version – with bonus disc) ... CD
XL/Beggars, 2001. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
The slinky sound of the tango gets updated into some great electric funky grooves – a pivotal recording for the French scene, and one of the gems of the past few years! The record takes the classic Argentinian tango approach, infuses it with funky Paris, and comes up with a timeless groove that's one of the freshest we've heard all year! Titles include "Epoca", "Queremos Paz", "La Del Ruso", "Vuelvo Al Sur", "Triptico", "Santa Maria", and an appropriate cover of "Last Tango In Paris"! US CD comes with a whole bonus CD – featuring "Triptico (Peter Kruder mix)", "Santa Maria (Tom Middleton's Cosmos mix)", "El Capitalismo Foraeno (Antipop Consortium mix)", "Santa Maria (Pepe Braddock mix)", and an enhanced video of "Santa Maria".

Federico AubelePanamericana ... CD
ESL, 2007. Used ... $5.99
A nice little follow-up to Federico Aubele's debut Granhotelbuenosaires – and like that one, a set that draws from musical elements of Federico's heritage, while also updating the sound with a host of contemporary influences! The sound here is a bit less cinematic than before – thanks to the presence of vocalists on many numbers, helping to create a catchier, almost crossover vibe at times – one that's still nicely subdued, but which makes for a fair bit of tuneful tracks on the set. Federico sings a bit, as does Natalia Clavier, Amparo Sanchez, and Vernie Varela – and titles include "La Esquina", "Maria Jose", "Corazon", "Este Momento", "Pena", "La Orilla", "Tan Dificil", "Las Canciones", "Lluvia", and "Su Melodia".

Don TikiForbidden Sounds Of Don Tiki ... CD
Taboo, 1997. Used ... $4.99
Better than you might think – and a sparkling selection of recent exotica work that's very much in the best tradition of Martin Denny or Les Baxter, but which also goes far beyond that style, into a wealth of groovy modes that also hits some great 60s soundtrack moments! The first few tunes are very much in a late 50s Capitol/Liberty mode – but as the album progresses, it hits a style that's much more than you'd expect from the exotic cover – kind of a blend of Lalo Schifrin-type grooves with some bossa and 60s LA jazz influences. The album's got some killer percussion by Carlinhos De Oliveira, and solid jazz basis to some of the playing on the best tracks – a feature that takes the record way past the simple retro mode that usually ruins a project of this nature. Titles include "Exotica 97", "Close Your Eyes", "Hot Like Lava", "Barbi In Bali", "Clutch Cargo Cult", "Da T'ing He Grow", and "Itchy Palms". (Now Sound, New Grooves) CD

✨✧ KraftwerkTour De France Soundtracks ... CD
EMI/Astralwerks, 2003. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A return to genius for one of the most important bands of the past 50 years – and a wonderful little record that we'd rank right up there with the best of their albums from the 70s! The album builds off the "Tour De France" single the group first recorded back in the early 80s – a classic tune with a huge influence that unfortunately was never on an album. And while this album bears the title and cover of that original single, the sound and style are a bit different – more in the mode of longer-worked electronic epics like Radio-Activity or Trans Europe Express – particularly the latter one, as this set has Kraftwerk taking a musical tour that matches the famous bicycle race – gliding around the countryside on waves of electronic magic! The whole thing's excellent – as brilliant as we could have hoped – and it's a long-overdue follow-up to one of our favorite tracks! Titles include "Chrono", "Vitamin", "La Forme", "Elektro Kardiogramm", "Titanium", "Aero Dynamik", and "Regeneration". (Rock, New Grooves) CD
