Get ‘Dat Jazzy, Electro Swing!

Should we weigh heavily on MySpace musical descriptions and listed influences? The avant-garde go arty and simply use, Other; some aren’t worried about labeling themselves, or possibly pigeonholing their act; others, with unique styles and complete amalgamations of genres, prominently label their vibe. Caravan Palace, a sextet out of none other than Paris, categorize their special blend as: electro, swing, & jazz. Distinct, no? For influences: Justice, Vitalic, Billie Holiday, Daft Punk, amongst others. Again, worth giving it a spin.

Shit jumps; does definitely swing; has an upbeat Basement Jaxx house feel, at times; maybe even a tad too much Scat Man in it though. But as Star Scat presents, the band takes a chance to cool out, too. Regardless, proof that Phoenix isn’t the only Parisian act catching my attention this year…
