Let's Go to Tahiti


The question is: "What would it sound like if a sweet French band signed with an American indie-pop-punk label and had their record mixed by the sound engineers behind Outkast and NERD?" Tahiti 80 is the answer to the question. Their album Fosbury was released last year on The Militia Group (Lovedrug, Cartel, The Rocket Summer, Copeland), further expanding the label's already impressive diversity. This is nothing if not hip, the musical lovechild of Kings of Convenience and Phoenix, if only Pharrell was hired to be the nanny. Shake it like a salt shaker.

Listen:
Fallen Down
Alloveragain

wow. you're officially the coolest music blogger in the world. I've been wondering for ages why no one paid any attention to "Fosbury". it came and went in the blink of an eye. it's a great record, and if you dig that, their prior albums, especially "Puzzle" (Minty Fresh Records, 2000) are brilliant as well. "Swiming Suit" and "Heartbeat" are personal favs.
