Sébastien Tellier 

Wednesday, Apr 15 2009

Parisian producer Sébastien Tellier claims his 2008 album, Sexuality, was informed by "the abuse of sustained arpeggiator by extralarge tablecloths." That's crazy in any language. Of course, a French accent makes loony behavior all the more forgivable, especially when it comes from an expert at bridging Jean-Michel Jarre's analog synth pulsations with the oversexed chamber pop of Serge Gainsbourg. And who but a Frenchman would claim his frisky beach-party beat is best enjoyed by lovers as they pop a champagne cork at twilight? Opening act Chairlift makes noirish synth pop that sounds as if Giorgio Moroder had scored a film with the Cocteau Twins.
