Bossa Nova

In 2004 I got myself involved in promoting a club event. Called noWax, it was all about getting people up off the floor to play music through their iPod. Participants would simply take a ticket, wait their turn, and when their number comes up on the projector, it's time to come and battle off with your 3 best tunes against another MP3J!

Part of the reason it was so cool was because the playlists would be so random. The music would move from Soul, to Indie, to Electronica, to Jazz, the Metal and back again. This meant I would often be introduced to bands and artists I had never previously considered. Nouvelle Vague are one of those bands. Their last album turned out to be one of my favourite from 2004, and also proved to be a great dinner party album. With a new one coming this summer, I'm rather excited.
