Listen to Air France’s reshaping of Brit-pop group Saint Etienne’s “Spring”, from their re-released Foxbase Alpha, at their MySpace. If you dig this song then be sure to get Saint Etienne’s limited edition 12” (only 200 copies available) through the band’s fan club.

We just reviewed the latest album from OOIOO, which included “OOIAH”. Our Richard Elliott described this track in particular as “a splendid singalong of happy nonsense that mutates into a synth and guitar workout that has its controls firmly set for the heart of the sun.”

80kidz, Japanese DJs who’ve created remixes for acts like Simian Mobile Disco, Phenomenal Handclap Band, and Dan Black, now have bestowed their mash-up genius on Metric’s hit, “Help I’m Alive”, making it a bouncy synth jam.
