Air Returning to the Moon With New Album, Next Week

February 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

In the Mailbox Today:

Last year, at the behest of the foundations restoring it, Air scored the 1902 silent film Le Voyage Dans la Lune (or, A Trip to the Moon), just in time for the 2011 Cannes festival. Afterward, the French duo decided to expand it into a full-length (not unlike Pixies leader Black Francis, who a few years ago spun a soundtrack around The Golem, a German flick from 1920).

The LP-ified Voyage arrives next Tuesday, Feb 7th, on Astralwerks. It’s bold (the tympani-and-banjo-kind of bold) with plenty of Air-y synth magic. It’s Floyd-ish (it does use a movie as a springboard, after all). Most importantly, it’s oh-so-good.
