Sébastien Tellier, the first signing to Record Makers, returned after his 2001 "L'Incroyable Vérité" album and his appearance on the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation" with "Politics", a stunning eleven-track CD of almost indescribable cinematic and uplifting music.
Produced in Paris by the legendary Philip Zdar (Cassius, Etienne de Crecy), "Politics" is an uncompromising album featuring contributions from artists as diverse as Tony Allen (Fela Kuti), Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr Oizo) and the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra.
This voice is magnified by open, melodious music that is unfettered and full of pleasure. With 'Politics' we blissfully sing of the pleasures of eating bananas under the sun, or of making love with the moonlight. It's that simple. Under Tellier the oppressed fought valiantly in the Martyr Road Studios, right up until 31st May 2003, when Paris' 18th arrondisement was itself stormed - by freak hail, which destroyed all of the artist's equipment. Only the master tapes remained, which, then dripping wet, he was grateful to pass onto Phillippe Zdar for the genial mix that is now 'Politics'.
