I picked up a CD compilation by Putumayo Records called French Cafe the other day. Getting in touch with my French heritage, ya know. Some artists I was already familiar with: Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot. Others, not so much. Among the not so much is a fellow by the name of Mathieu Boogaerts. His track, "Ondule," hardly seems to exist, but is a delight everytime I hear it. It's barely a light breeze on a sunny afternoon. Maybe we can call Matthieu Boogaerts "the Jack Johnson of France." I listen to "Ondule" and imagine myself enjoying a leisurely stroll on the Champs-Elysees. It's beautiful. It's Friday and I feel good.
Of course, the French do love their nudity. Click for the same artist singing "Silliguri."
Other Feel Good Friday players include: GingerSnaps, Squirrel Queen, Heartbreaktown, Newscoma, Kat Coble, LeBlanc (sounds like a good French name), Sharon Cobb, Subtle Bluntness, Jagadiah, and Holly.
Good folks, all of them.
