Album: The Dø, Both Ways Open Jaws (Village Green)

The Dø are French multi-instrumentalist Dan Levy and Finnish singer Olivia Merilahti.

Little known here, their last album went to the top of the French charts, though let's not hold that against them as their multilayered space-pop is as boundary defying as it is breaking (they cite Mingus, critics lazily mention Björk). Regardless, on the evidence of this one can safely say that the Dø are the best French/Finnish duo in pop. Listen to "Dust it Off" on their MySpace page for proof.
