JDIZZY's 365 # 296: You Make It Easy

You Make It Easy - Air (1998)

Like Daft Punk before them, Air made us re-think our ideas on French music. Through the course of their debut long player, Moon Safari, the french retro electronic duo made us feel as if we were in the coolest 1960's version of a space age bachelor's pad, complete with Moogs, gently strummed acoustic guitars and the voices of sirens. This format gels perfectly on today's track, which features Beth Hirsch on vocals. For a genre noted for its cold shoulders, the song delivers a beautiful message of love that has not an ounce of ice on it. Air has continued to show the beating heart of analog machines throughout their career, and there really isn't one of their 9 releases that I can't recommend enough.

Here be wedding music for Mars.
