Genre: Rock, Pop, Soul / Label: Late Night Tales
Lets be honest French chill-out masters Air were never going to have any trouble blending a sophisticated mix of mood-enhancing rock and pop for the soul. Opening with All Cats Are Grey by The Cure (from the start of their dark Trilogy Faith: nothing like starting as you mean to go on), it soon swoops into even trippier territory with Planet Caravan by Black Sabbath (from their 1970 album Paranoid) and into Nino Rotas ultra-eery O Venezia, Venaga, Venusia (from the original soundtrack to 76 art-house classic "Il Casanova di Fellini, slowly but surely it takes in tracks from The Band, Japan, Scott Walker and Lee Hazlewood. As melancholic as it is after-dark dreamy, you can rest assured that theres no JLS in the mix here.
