Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

As a life-long francophile, i have to admire Californian Elinore Blake's reinvention as Parisian electro-ye-ye queen April March. Blake's fascination with the country started at school but lay largely dormant while she worked as an animator (for PeeWee Herman and Madonna) and made herself a staple of the US garage music scene in bands like The Pussywillows.

The catalyst for a transformation so complete that she now appears on the promo CDs sent out by the French Export Ministry was her meeting with Bertrand Burgalat - the driving force behind the new wave of classical French pop and owner of the Tricatel record label. Accompanied by Burgalat, as a producer and co-writer, and his excellent house-band A.S Dragon, she has released two superb Sixties-flavoured solo albums. The lovely Coral Bracelet is from the second, Triggers.
