Album Review
Reviewed 2008-06-05
Here are the best of the French singles we received for April from the Francophonie Diffusion network. Music from France and French-speaking countries. Styles range from straight-up French pop to hip hop, jazz and Afro-folk. Since these are hand-picked I can recommend any track.

1. Oh-so-sexy male vocals in a deliciously dreamy mid/upbeat trip.
2. Fun, fresh, lively Afro pop w/great vocals & a lightly funk sound.
3. Wicked cool percussion hooks you, then wildly cool midtempo Afro funk.
4. Solid, high energy hip hop w/gritty vocals and a wicked groove.
5. Crazily retro love song w/delicious vocals, band. Too good to be true.
Complete with movie soundtrack clips. A Dean Martin hit! In English.
6. Relaxed, slightly retro with warm vocals and a wacky hint of Gyspy jazz.
7. Fun, instantly catchy rock w/a slight 80s feel.
8. Shades of Django! Wonderfully playful, joyous Gypsy swing.
9. Gorgeous female vocals in up/midtempo Afro pop with a warm lyricism.
10. Up/midtempo w/growly vocals and a blend of bluegrass and driving jazz.
