Probably the year's sexiest record. Mellow, who made it, are half-French and have links with Air. As if that wasn't enough crazy cosmic links, it's from top video director (Strokes, Moby) Roman (Sofia's brother) Coppola's debut, a cross between Barbarella and Breathless. This slinks and purrs like a baby tiger trying to work out if drowning in baby oil is an acceptable pastime. Hung up on '60s cheesiness and Gallic guile, it's like Moon Safari on a mission to Mars. Only it keeps getting caught in the bedroom. With Modesty Blaise. And a young Anna Karina. I'm projecting now. Anyway, stupendous.
