Track by track
1. Two Door Cinema Club \"Something Good Can Work\"
They’re very young, very shy, very three, very Northern Irish. They’re into melody, very much so. We believe in them. Close your eyes and here you are: somewhere else. The most beautiful song there is.
2. We Have Band \"Time After Time\"
They’re young too, also three, although there’s a couple in the trio. A mental energy on stage that’s left the Parisian audience of a Kitsunй En Vrai gig totally battered. Proper heroes.
3. Phoenix \"Lisztomania (CLASSIXX Version)\"
Here’s the first single of the long awaited new Phoenix album, remixed by the new Los Angeles scene: Classixx. A production that’s evocative of a Corvette in the sun, carefree, before it all gets dangerously heated up. Quite convenient too when you’re fifteen (at least spiritually) to French kiss for a whole five minutes.
4. Crystal Fighters \"Xtatic Truth\"
They say: ”We make dance music with Basque instruments, synths and our voices”. In London people talk of Folktronica. At Kitsunй’s headquarter in Montmartre, we find that it opens the door quite a bit and let fresh air comes in.
5. The Golden Filter \"Favourite Things\"
The italo-disco scene revitalized by these New Yorkers who have been close to Kitsunй for a long time. The girl goes through her list of favorite things and that’s enough for us: ”coffee, sugar, ice cream, vintage dresses, kittens, rabbits, Paris, nice girls, cute boys”. Feels familiar.
6. La Roux \"In For The Kill (Lifelike Remix)\"
Here La Roux is remixed by Lifelike, mr glamour from Strasbourg. These days she’s one of the most fashionable artists in the Kitsunй Maison. The track is as smooth as a yellow Testarossa that won’t stop, just like Donna Summer’s endless orgasms. The beat revolves around broken glass, yes we drink Russian-style at Kitsunй.
7. Beni \"Fringe Element (Short Like Me Edit)\"
Young, charismatic producer, he makes club music. He’s part of the good, ebullient Aussie scene. The track takes an unexpected turn, in discotheque slang it’s called ‘major sweating’.
8. autoKratz \"Always More (Yuksek Remix)\"
The band of the moment remixed by the remixer of the moment, a healthy Manchester/Paris connectivity. The break is sublime : ‘take my hand, you can break my heart’ sung through a vocoder. We don’t aim to be too lyrical but… In June 2009 Kitsunй releases Autokratz’s album.
9. 80kidz \"Miss Mars\"
A Tokyo trio that’s crept up on the electro radar these last few months. They’re extremely polite, take great care of the way they dress; they’re Japanese and we believe the best of their scene right now.
10. James Yuill \"This Sweet Love (Prins Thomas Sneaky Edit)\"
Atmospheric and acoustic, check the contrast between the simplicity of the voice and the richness of the Prins Thomas remix. Extremely beautiful song, another vision of the sun. Because we’re talking of a maison and not a barn, Kitsunй likes to relax but not let go totally.
11. Men \"Make It Reverse\"
There had to be an act who would call itself Men. The lesbian scene moves in la Maison. A very militant sound, alternative sexuality, new hormones for a new life. They have as much energy as ‘radicality’, it quickly entices you to jump up and down. Very good very loud at four in the morning to do what you do at four in the morning.
12. Chew Lips \"Solo\"
The sound of east London now today, not just another guitar band. Music that experiments and improvises among four tons of influences. The city’s urgency, the impatience, the vitality, the whirling.
13. Chateau Marmont \"Beagle\"
The thirteen track on the seventh Maison. Here are some French people impressed by the luxurious Californian hotel where fashionable actors come to die. They’re childhood friends, into science fiction, and down the end a sound quite hard to grasp.
14. Heartsrevolution \"????????\"
The band behind the craziest track of Maison 6 makes a welcome return. Their album will come out in September 2009 and love will rain. They’re handsome, they have a Swarovski microphone, plenty of ideas, they’ll go a long way. True idols.
15. Delphic \"Counterpoint (Delphic’s En Route Mix)\"
Delphic is a British band from Manchester, Kitsunй will release their album in September 2009. Influences range from Orbital to Underworld, very much what we like. To listen at sunset, sunrise and in between.
16. Encore –
An empty index, the moment people scream for an encore at a concert.
17. MayBB \"Touring In NY (Short Tour Edit)\"
Here hides a very, very famous guy who doesn’t wish to be named. So we can’t give away much, it’ll drive you crazy, but really we can’t tell you more.
18. Renaissance Man \"Rythym\"
They’re Finnish from Helsinki, used to be students with Abдke, Kitsunй’s graphic designers. Yes there is nepotism too at Kitsunй. The result could be used as soundtrack for contemporary ballet, it sure cleans the aural pipes.
19. Tanlines \"Bejan\"
Tribal and epic music from New York. Their own press release sums it up perfectly: ”Balearic and disco Larry Levan-style with an insistent euphoric charm that’s perfect to blow up the soft-skinned British students.”
