Dream Weapons present: THE GARDEN PARTY C60

Fifty-odd years ago an eccentric billionaire, globetrotter, collector of beautiful things and all-round degenerate throws a garden party for the ages. Strange and unrealistic things happen behind the scenes, while people dance and enjoy themselves all over the mega-mansion. Once again a little like the soundtrack to a daft movie I'd enjoy for the visuals - and love for the score. Don’t you just wish you were there? -Moahaha

Marie Laforêt - Maïtena Marie Brigitte Doumenbach (C60)

My latest show/C60 for 20ft Radio was broadcast a couple of days ago, but they're busy with some music festival, and seemingly haven't had time uploading my mix on mixcloud, so I'll wait with posting "The Garden Party" until they do. Meanwhile here's a(nother) compilation I made nine years ago. Back when when I compiled it her music wasn't on Spotify and in general she felt far more unknown or perhaps forgotten than she does now (at least where I'm situated). But its a spectacular collection of tunes... if I dare say so myself. Anyway:

-Maïtena Marie Brigitte Doumenbach is  Marie Laforêt's (1939-2019) birthname. Sounding a little like Edit Piaf with an updated 60's sound, the swissborn (but of armenian origin), Paris based actress/singer/model Marie Laforet was never really a Ye-Ye girl. Some of her hits are typical Ye-Ye, but in general her style was too sophisticated, artsy, mature and not poppy enough to be a part of that scene.

The main reason I made my own Golden Hour of 25 songs chosen out of about 150, is (as always) that I've never came across one that felt pleasing to listen to all the way through. If you don't know this stunning lady or her stunning chansons yet, this might become your perfect summer soundtrack discovery. If you do know her I hope you approve of my selection
