Tahiti 80 - Here Comes

Tahiti 80's debut album Puzzle was one of the hidden gems of 2000, an interesting mix of French electro and fuzzy Brit pop sensibilities. This month their third full-length album Fosbury finally hits stateside, after being released in Europe and Japan sometime last year. The Tahiti 80 formula hasn't changed too much, although there doesn't seem to be as much guitar this time around -- something they may be rectifying with a couple of exclusive U.S. bonus tracks. Some of the songs evoke electronic bands like Air and Stereolab, while others have more of a soul/R&B feel. Check out the video for one of the U.S. exclusives below.
