Album: Moussu T E Lei Jovents, Artemis (Harmonia Mundi)

It's not easy to produce jaunty sun-kissed music which still retains edge and credibility, but this band from Marseille have been doing just that for nearly 30 years.

However, they are at their most convincing when not striving for contemporary credibility by occasionally shoehorning in samples and raps. Yes they sometimes sound unnervingly like a Gallic Chas & Dave but one could equally see them as a chirpier Lo'Jo.
