Telex – “En Route vers de Nouvelles Aventures” (1980)

It’s criminal that basically none of Telex’ work is currently in print–a state that surely can’t continue for long.  They’re better (and for my money “more important”) than just about every post-Kraftwerk/Moroder synth-pop band that existed during the post-punk era; their first three albums have the timeless quality we all love from Kraftwerk’s ‘Computer World’.  This track is a good introduction: warm, bouncing, graceful, sophisticated, fun.  Thank goodness for the always-thorough (though currently moribund) Music Blog of Saltyka & His Friends, in the meantime till someone realises they could make bank getting Telex-awareness to a just level in the USA.  [Telex are featured along with tons of other fuzzy synth-disco goodness in a four-part megamix at Musicophilia.]
