5 Perfect Summer Discs (You've Never Heard Of)
Nouvelle Vague: Nouvelle Vague
Take some of the best tunes of the '80s and set them to a funky Bossa Nova beat and you have Nouvelle Vague. The moniker of French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, the pair employ sultry female French and Brazilian vocalists to do covers of such songs as The Violent Femmes' Blister in the Sun, Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart, XTC's Making Plans for Nigel and even the Dead Kennedys' Too Drunk to F**k. Hypnotizing, fun, and perfect beginning to end. Listen HERE.
