Song of the Day 8/18/08: Air France - Collapsing At Your Doorstep
Air France must have been the fellows who recovered the good luck charm that fell out of The Avalanches' pocket. They owe the basest element of exotic joy to those pioneers of careful oversampling - and absolutely nothing more. "Collapsing At Your Doorstep" is orchestrated with a particular eye toward delicacy, calling on a weave of samples that conjure a playground's wonder: "sort of like a dream, isn't it? No - better." Strings and warm pads burst from pinpricks of static, like the sounds of an old orchestra tumbling out of your attic between backlit dustbeams. Their No Way Down EP swells with an antiquated sort of magic the whole way through - we recommend grabbing a copy from our friends at Sincerely Yours.
