Description: "The hypnotic A side entitled "Musique Rock" was inspired by the 1999 French film, Une Liason Pornographique, and features April March on vocals. Here she sings entirely in French with a delicate melancholy tune and to round out this song beyond guitar, Steve Weiss drums (he has also played with AM and Depedro).
"Fini" on the AA side is a smoldering, breathy duet sung in French and English and takes place between Blasco and Melissa Auf der Maur of Hole/Smashing Pumpkins/MAdM. the music also features several friends of Blasco who have played with a myriad of bands such as Cracker and Sparklehorse. As the title "Fini" suggests, a love affair has ended and the man has drunk his way out of her heart.
Together these two songs celebrate a classic sexy '60s French-ballad style that sounds modern yet timeless. They describe affairs of the heart but avoid the trappings of a sappy love song." - Little Black Cloud Records
