This is the track that a friend of mine used to introduce me to the concept of electroswing and, more specifically, the excellent French band, Caravan Palace. It remains one of my favourites of theirs, though others hold special places in my heart nowadays.
I don’t pay a great deal of attention to musical trends or genres, so I was unaware of the existence of electroswing before this song – and I have to say, I love it. The fusion of old and new is kind of incredible, and Caravan Palace does it particularly well.
And so, I present it without further comment. Enjoy.
