Ivy I've Got A Feeling Apartment Life (5)

(1) Ivy includes Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne). Well arranged pop, breathy female vocals with a french accent from Dominique Durand.
Good Line: "I know you're only human, but I expect something better."

(2) Oblique Sessions includes Pascal Comelade (guitars, toy guitars) and Pierre Bastien (who builds mechanical self-playing musical instrument systems). I love it when people like this get together. This is some kind of beautiful stuff.

(3) As for this set: I really wanted to get the holidays over with this year.

(4) Among the only contemporary improvisors who float my boat.

(5) Another good line: "I've been watching the world pass by all around you."
