La Piscine: Laetitia Sadier - "Resistance dans l'ombre"

La Piscine, an invitation by Laetitia Sadier To keep on swimming is a water-themed collaborative project released as a limited edition 12" on Wool Records this past September. Laetitia Sadier, of Stereolab fame, put this five-song release together with friends Richard Swift, Rebecca Gates, and Superbravo. One of Sadier's two tracks, "Resistance dans l'ombre," which translates to "resistance in the shadows," has been on repeat around the Everybody Taste headquarters for the past month. The insistent decayed percussive beat and faucet-like drip of the synths form a wonderfully hypnotic and sparse canvas for Sadier's voice, which simultaneously feels intimate, rough, and yes, a bit sexy. I have no clue whether the project is inspired by or named after the 1969 French film La Piscine (The Swimming Pool), but it seems worth mentioning.

While Wool Records is sold out of the 12", you can still nab it from Rough Trade.
