New trip to an old Moon
French duo Air have caught me off guard with their soundtrack to the 1902 silent movie “le voyage dans la lune“. I stumbled across the album by accident, and decided to give it a chance … glad I did! Air’s last few albums did nothing for me, but this soundtrack sees them in Olympic form – a mix of library, soundtracks, analogue synths and their trademark French melancholy comes together in a perfectly formed 30+ minutes. If only they were to release this on vinyl as well!
