Happy New Year!

We've been very slapdash with our writing here and despite any resolutions we might have made, the 498th Soundtrack of the Week is going to be the slapdashiest one in a long time. We regret that we do not have the time to say more about Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier's music for Les Chemins de Katmandou.

Real quick: lots of space, deep grooves, clavinet, sonorously beautiful electric bass and strings, ethereal vocals, definitely recommended for Melody Nelson fans.

And also cheers to Finders Keepers for discovering the tapes for this! For decades it was assumed that they had been destroyed in a studio fire.

Now go do something good!
