M – Ma Melodie [video].
So last night I was at the Res screening. Lots of great videos, not the least of which were was the Basement Jaxx “Red Alert,” Dead Prez’ “Hip Hop,” the new Gorillaz, the new Arcade Fire, etc. But, this little line art video from M really caught me off guard. It’s a quaint little melody, reminiscent of Moon Safari-era Air, which says more about my lack of French pop knowledge than anything else. Anyway, it’s a solid song from a solid artist with a wonderful, whimsical little video. Definitely recommended viewing.
For those of you who speak French, you can check out M’s website. For those of you interested in his music, you can pick up an import copy of his album (which came out in Jan. 2004) over at Amazon . You can also get it slightly cheaper at Insound. Recommended for fans of French Pop, crazy hair, theatrics and downright good music. To learn more about director Cyril Houplain, visit his site here
