The breezy world of international pop that has been so popular with the Japanese, the Swedes, the French, and the Spanish, is now finally enjoying some success in America. Bands like St. Etienne, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Belle & Sebastian, all leading the pack out of indiepop obscurity. Spring have toured with Pulp and Stereolab in their native France and Spain (yes they are from both countries), and singer Alex is a true superstar as she leads her trio through jazzy, acousticy, and sophisticated pop anthems. The Last Goodbye finds the band at the top of their game after remix records on the Bungalow and Elefant labels. It's an album in every sense, dynamically stirring up the A&M Records circa 1966 (think Claudine Longet) pot up with a unique, vibrant sound all their own. Amor y cocktails and long summer picnics unite and take over. A favorite of Jarvis Cocker, Neil Hannon, Damon Albarn, and Laetitia Stereolab, discover Spring this summer and add a bit of that charming and exciting pop flair to your record collection. Wine goblets sold seperately.
