The Nouvelle Vague | A Manner of Speaking

Song download of the day! I’m going to start trying to do this every day. Who doesn’t like free music?

(Dear RIAA, don’t be a jerk and arrest me. I fully encourage people to buy these albums.)

The Nouvelle Vague are a French musical collective led by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. The cool thing about Nouvelle Vague is that they only do covers. They have excellent taste in tracks which they then turn into a very Frenchie sounding Bossa Nova style. Their first album, Bande á Parte was a lot of early 80s covers from the likes of New Order and Echo and the Bunnymen. This song, In a Manner of Speaking, is a cover of an obscure Depeche Mode song. If you’re new to me, know this: I love Depeche Mode. Go download this and listen to it on repeat until you’ve downed a whole bottle of Conundrum.
