Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle: Happy Birthday Lætitia Sadier Edition

[photo from Drag City]

Today we wish a very Happy Birthday to Lætitia Sadier. She emerged into prominence singing and playing guitar with the French experimental Pop group Stereolab, a band that operated on creative and political wavelengths well outside the MOR norm while pointing the way forward for untold numbers of artists and bands working in the ‘90s and ‘00s (their sounds helped lay the groundwork for what we know today as Post-Rock). For the past few years Sadier’s been a solo act, crafting music that has a lighter and more romantic but no less expressive touch, not unlike a 21st century torch singer.

To wish her a bon anniversaire, take your MP3 player, press the "shuffle" button, and share the first 10 songs that play:

1. Toni Childs – Daddy’s Song (House of Hope)

2. Nicki Minaj – Save Me (Pink Friday)

3. Teebs – Holiday (E s t a r a)

4. Elvis Costello & The Roots – Walk Us Uptown (Wise Up Ghost)

5. Modern English – I Melt With You (Pillow Lips)

6. Art Tatum – Don’t Blame Me (20th Century Piano Genius)

7. Tortoise – Dear Grandma and Grandpa (Millions Now Living Will Never Die)

8. Go West - Don’t Look Down (Go West)

9. The Shifties - What Could Be So Wrong (Western Automatic)

10. PC Worship - My Lens (Basement Hysteria)
