Today’s Track – La Femme D’Argent, Air

Something magnificent; something French. La Femme D’Argent (“The Silver Woman”) by Air from the album Moon Safari, 1998.


Today’s Track – American Dream, Jakatta

I thought a peppy dose of aptly named chill (yes, that’s a thing) might be a nice way to kick off the holiday weekend. American Dream by Jakatta from the album Chilled (by Ministry of Sound), 2015.

Today’s Track – Onto the Light, Adani & Wolf

Something lite and mellow with a deep euro groove to ease us into summer. Onto the Light by Adani & Wolf from the album Le Seigneurs, 2011.


Today’s Track – Getting Away With It, Rose Smith

A little atmospheric electronica out of England today. See, I’m frantically prepping for a two-and-a-half week trip to Asia (bug spray with 50% DEET? Check…), and need a little chill time to help me center. Getting Away With It by Rose Smith from the album Dawn Raiding, 2002.

Today’s Track – Life Changes, Rose Smith

Since it’s “Maison” week on the blog, I thought I’d feature a song discovered along the way. A friend and I were shopping at Merci in Paris’ Marais one Saturday night, when the champagne began flowing. Well, who can resist that? So we settled in to people watch the fabulous folk attending the posh design week event (most of whom were actually invited, which – technically – we were not). Today’s track was part of the hipster playlist. Life Changes by Rose Smith from the album Dawn Raiding, 2002.

Today’s Track – At the River, Groove Armada

Something easy today, that talks of sand dunes and salty air… At the River by Groove Armada from the album Vertigo, 2000.



Today’s Track – Do What You Want, Aya

A very creamy blend of R&B and electronica makes a feather soft serenade that seems right for this fall day. Do What You Want by Aya from the album Strange Flower, 2004.

Today’s Track – Le Soleil est près de moi, Air

Halfway through my vacation, I find myself blissed out in Provence; soaking up rays, sipping rosé, surrounded by people I adore. I think this instrumental (yes, it’s borderline muzak, but i don’t care) from my favorite French group captures the mood nicely. Le Soleil est près de moi (“The Sun Is Near Me”) by Air, from the album of the same name, 1997.

Today’s Track – That Easy, Clara Hill

A bit of electro-soul out of Berlin seems apropos for this breezy summer’s day. That Easy by Clara Hill from the album Restless Times, 2004. Clara Hill Restless Times

Today’s Track – Hayling, FC Kahuna

Sometimes when there are only 14 words in a song – and they repeat over, and over, and over – I sorta check out. But today’s the sort of day where a good dose of repetitive Euro chill hits the spot. (Sort of transports me to a hipster hotel in London; where quite frankly, I wouldn’t mind being right now.) And I suppose if you listen to the same phrase that many times, it just might begin to sink in.  Hayling by FC Kahuna from the album Machine Says Yes, 2002.




Today’s Track – Leave Me With the Monkeys, Sophie Hunger

I have no idea what this song is about. But I like it. Leave Me With The Monkeys by Sophie Hunger from her self titled album, 2011.

Today’s Track – Travelogue, Sophie Hunger

Since I’m in Geneva, I thought we’d celebrate a Swiss artist today. Then I realized there wasn’t a single track in my music library that fit that bill. As I started exploring the possibilities, I made a magnificent discovery; Switzerland’s Sophie Hunter. Egad – how have I not heard her before? She’s brilliant! Brilliant as in I bought entire albums instead of just a few favorite tracks. Give it a go and let me know what you think! Travelogue by Sophie Hunter from the album 1983, 2010.
