This has been sitting in my email box for too long, but as a tribute to the recently deceased 70s porn icon Marilyn Chambers (pictured), it's about time I introduce you to Charlotte & Magon. A boy/girl duo (she's French, he's from Israel) make the most exquisite softfocus, plushy shagcarpet music. Everything turns into brown and orange whenever Charlotte sings, and that's meant as a compliment. Serge and Jane are a good reference, so are Air, Pierre Bachelet and even Minnie Riperton. It's retro, but brand new. 'We compose our music in the bedroom', they say, 'thinking of the sea'. I bet they are. Although some songs have a French title, Charlotte doesn't sing in French. Alas. Hope she will. Soon.
