AIR: Le Voyage Danse La Lune
Buy! - (Astralwerks)
This French duo’s latest album began as soundtrack that they were asked to compose for the newly restored in-color edition of the 1902 French silent-film classic Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon). After completing the soundtrack to the short 16-minute film, they decided to expand it and turn it into an official AIR album, and it does indeed work more or less like an album of mostly instrumental space-pop (though Victoria Legrand of Beach House and Au Revoir Simone contribute vocals to a song apiece) incorporating elements of prog-rock, funk, ambient, techno and more, with atmospheric songs driven by sci-fi keyboards along with prominent timpani and other percussion. 2/2/2012 - Don Yates
