Well then, I suppose that calls for one of my obligatory favorites posts. TÃ©lÃ©popmusik is yet another group you hear on almost every commercial in existance. The band’s core has gone through some reshuffling a few times, but the core remains the same for the time being: Fabrice Dumont, 2square, and Antipop, all of whom have their own solo projects to attend to. As a result, the delayed third album is still in production for this year (I pray).
These musicians share a love of all things electronic, and their work proudly speaks for their acheivements in raw, creative music. From “Breathe,” their arguably most infamous track, to the awe-inducing, sweeping tracks like “Don’t Look Back” and “Stop Running Away” from Angel Milk, TÃ©lÃ©popmusik has been at the forefront of my most played albums list every year. Their style is varied; their lyrics equally eclectic. Helped in part due to an ever-shuffling roster of guest vocals per track (Angela McCluskey is a particular stand-out vocalist), the band is cemented in unpredictability; I never know what to expect next from them. I eagerly await their third effort, though I know it will be thoroughly breathtaking once again. Oh yeah, and any band with a dancing panda on the cover is guaranteed the title of “perfection” by my standards. Take that as you will.

One of my favorites, “Into Everything”:
By the way, I still can’t stop thinking about blinking.
And you, what do you think?
