French speakers know electronic music

ghislain.jpgThis isn’t really up for discussion. Daft Punk, Air, Cassius, Alan Braxe, Laurent Garnier, and about 4,672,347 other amazing artists have been rubbing it in our faces for quite some time now. (Pretty much everyone on the Ed Banger label — whom you’ll be hearing more from when I do my year-end wrapup — have been the most recent perpetrators.)

I hadn’t listened to Montreal-based badass Ghislain Poirier for a while, but I was just doing the thing where I scroll quickly up and down my iTunes and then listen to something wherever I stop, and I landed in the mid-Gs and was reminded of how awesome this album was. I’m not going to go into detail here; just know that this song is devastating, and the switchup at the 1:23 mark is my SHIT!

Ghislain Poirier: “Don’t Smile, It’s Post-Modern” [from Breakupdown, 2005]
