This is chilled martini music, ultra cool, nearly frozen, something you'd drink in Paris -- not the real Paris, but Imaginary Paris -- very sophisticated, not even entirely French, a place of mind that exists in wintry light all year round, where the discotheque never closes and you look like Jean-Paul Belmondo -- or Jean Seberg, if you're a girl. Meet for drinks and cigarettes -- Gauloises and Gitanes - and effortless, witty conversation. Meaningful glances. Laughter. Godard, moth wings, rain...what else? You go in that team, I go on this team. What is this? Stereolab. Les Yper Sound.
