French electro-ish musician, Sebastien Tellier, has been making music for several years, and has enjoyed a fair amount of success with outstanding reviews from the likes of NME and other--as well as with the appearance of his song "Fantino" in the movie Lost in Translation. I just recieved a copy of his single "La Ritournelle" remixed by the one and only Jim Noir in my mail this morning, and I simply had to share it with you. It's an instrumental version of the song, but it's simply gorgeous. Jim Noir has added that "fog" that seems to move across his recordings to this remix, and really brought out the beat. I also figured that many of you might have no frame of reference for this song, so I've included the original edit and a couple other versions of it. If you enjoy it be sure to head over to Sebastien's label, Record Makers, to order yourself a copy of the single's remix cd. It can also be found on iTunes and Napster.

Also, be sure to head over to Culture Bully today where my good friend Chris has posted a recording of Thom Yorke performing "The Clock", from his solo CD: The Eraser, on The Henry Rollins Show which is set to air next week on the Independent Film Channel. That's right, you get to hear it before anyone else!
