French Talent 08

Man, there is some great music coming out of France right now...The songs offered up today are from a sampler that was included for free with the UK-based music industry trade magazine MUSICWEEK called, aptly enough, French Talent 08 (sounds mildly pornographic to me...).

Lots of good "experimental" pop with psych overtones...little dash of Middle Eastern sounds, even a jazz cover of Britney Spears' Toxic!

I picked a few of my favorites from the sampler (and am including links to a web or MySpace page for each artist so you can learn more).

Download a subset of French Talent 08 here, featuring:

Ikalane Walegh by Toumast
