Le Voyage Dans La Lune is the 7th full-length album from French downtempo electronic duo Air. After being commissioned to write a soundtrack for the classic 16-minute silent film of the same name, they expanded the theme into a full studio album. It’s self-described as more “raw” than previous material, but much of it is actually quite beautiful and in general it is typical of their style. Highlighted tracks include collaborations with Victoria Legrand (“Seven Stars”) and Au Revoir Simone (“Who Am I Now?”).
Recommended tracks: “Astronomic Club”, “Seven Stars”, “Who Am I Now?”
