Various - Kitsuné Maison 7: The Lucky One (Kitsuné)

The Lucky One? Well to be honest, we’re the lucky ones to be blessed with another compilation offering from Paris’s acclaimed Kitsuné label, taken from their Maison series. This is a musical scene where fashion and style are as important as content, but when the music is good as the indiey-dancey-synthy grooves on offer here, the accompanying circus fades into the background. As usual, the chic Parisians have gone for a mixture of high profile numbers and obscure efforts, showing their ears for musical talent and providing an excellent snapshot of current popular culture. Highs include Two Door Cinema Club’s jolly Something Good Can Work, the blissful Classixx version of Phoenix’s Listzomania and The Golden Filter’s fizzing Favourite Things. Once more, we are blessed to be admitted to Kitsuné’s Maison.
