Caravan Palace will release Robot, their third studio album, on October 30th 2015. Created in their Parisian studios, where the electro-pioneers fuse hedonistic house and old school jazz to glorious effect, Robot evokes the spirit of a modernistic Quintette du Hot Club de France. The musical sound bed for the vocally explosive, burlesque blazoning Zoe Colotis is created by the band s three founder members Hughes Paven (violin), Charles Delaporte(upright bass) and Arnaud Vial (guitar), plus Camille Chapelière (clarinet) & Antoine Toustou (trombone and electronics) over the beats provided by Paul-Marie Barbier(vibraphone, washboard, piano). The result is a decadent, potent cocktail of jazz manouche, hip-hop, jive, house and beats that defies simple categorisation.The band s appeal has grown off-radar, appreciated for both their musical virtuosity and their sheer ability to deliver a ballistic good time.Having originally formed in 2005 the band s eponymous debut album in 2008 set the tone - a rip-roaring party, bursting with fun and good humour. This album went on to define a new sound called Electro Swing, while charting in their native France where it quickly attained a platinum sales award. The second album, 2012s Panic , featuring the massive tunes Clash and Rock It For Me remains a treat to listen to, whether in a burlesque bar or at home. Since its release the band s live profile has risen unrelentingly, their concert tickets flying out with minimum promotion and zero-hype across the USA, a true word-of-mouth sensation that earned them a spot at Coachella last year.With this new album, and the recent use of their music in a Diet Coke commercial, America is about to get very familiar with Caravan Palace.

Most times it takes a couple plays through an album to really appreciate how it all flows together. Sometimes I've listened once and won't listen again for year. That time off typically is perfect for appreciating what you have.
But not with <|°_°|> because I listened once and haven't stopped listening to it since I got it. It's rare for me to fall in love with an album so fast; to enjoy each and every song like I have with this album.
This is why I love Caravan Palace so much. They have a unique sound that just grabs you and forces you to pay attention. Really danceable too!
If you even remotely enjoyed their first two albums, Caravan Palace and Panic, you need this now.
Key cuts: Comics, Tattoos, Wonderland
Update: I decided to buy a second album to give as a gift. When this copy arrived it was even more warped than the first copy (the video shows the second copy disc 2), and the quality of the music went down! Their music is still amazing as always.
