30 years, 30 songs, in 30 days - 2007

Pardon my French, but I’m going full fucking local here. (Relax now, it’s not Céline...)

Biggest anticipation we had over here throughout 2006 was with the recording process for the sophomore album by hometown sweethearts, Arcade Fire. So when Neon Bible came out in 2007, we were all-in on release day. The album is damn good as a whole, but personally, I feel it lacks the « great » classic song.

So for the purpose of this little thing we’re doing, I’m turning to the French side of music made in Québec for 2007.

This duo, called Alfa Rococo, gave me the best grooves that year. Their debut album was on heavy rotation in the house most of the time, and this was the song that made me fall in love, Les Jours de Pluie. (Rainy Days)

It’s irresistible.


First Chair. Last Call.

Modest Mouse - Dashboard
PJ Harvey - White Chalk
The Good, The Bad & The Queen - Kingdom Of Doom

but my number one is easily Radiohead's Reckoner, one of my all time favourites.

WHEN UNDER ETHER - PJ HARVEY

The ceiling is moving
Moving in time
Like a conveyor-belt
Above my eyes

When under ether
The mind comes alive
But conscious of nothing
But the will to survive

I lay on the bed
Waist-down undressed
Look up at the ceiling
Feeling happiness

Human kindness

The woman beside me
Is holding my hand
I point at the ceiling
She smiles so kind

Something's inside me
Unborn and unblessed
Disappears in the ether
This world to the next
Disappears in the ether
One world to the next

Human kindness
