Thanks to Daft Punk’s reinvention of disco as a vital form of music in 2013 with Random Access Memories, a lexicon of lounge lizards are seeing some much-deserved limelight. Meet L’Impératrice ♕, Paris’ newest pelvis-thrusters.  Employing the warm, sultry organ sounds of Air’s Moon Safari, the coke-fueled crisp guitar stride of Nile Rodgers and the everlasting cool of Giorgio Moroder, L’Impératrice ♕ have all the right connections for a rich and fulfilling dance record.

In between the soft femme vocals, there are instrumental arrangements that could pass for vintage Italian soundtracks from Fabio Frizzi (The Beyond), Walter Rizzati (House by the Cemetary) and Nico Fidenco (Emanuelle)…all of which can be purchased from the beloved Death Waltz Recordings.  Wink wink nudge nudge…

Limited black vinyl awaits you after the buy link, so put on your most breathable polyester slacks and listen to the entire EP below.  Bonsoir, mes amis.
