Boomkat Product Review:
Sébastien Tellier, the first signing to Record Makers, returns with "Politics", an eleven-track album of cinematic music after his appearance on the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation".
"Produced in Paris by the legendary Philip Zdar (Cassius, Etienne de Crecy), "Politics" is an uncompromising album featuring contributions from artists as diverse as Tony Allen (Fela Kuti), Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr Oizo) and the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra.
"Bye-Bye", the first track on the album was originally written as part of the score for Sebastien's starring role in the Quentin Dupieux directed file "Nonfilm", with Tony Allenstriking the perfect chord for 'Bye-Bye's rhythms. However after 'Bye-Bye' everything came together for the album - and Tellier began composing music in Phillippe Zdar's studios at 84 Rue Des Martyrs, Paris. And on this album appears Sébastien's masterpiece, the melody that everybody knows, "La Ritournelle"."
