As winter is now firmly anchored, there is nothing quite like staying in bed, enjoying a warm coffee with a delicious breakfast, and listening to some very comforting tracks, like candy for the ears… That’s exactly what we have carefully crafted for you today with Juniore, a French indie-pop band. Instrumental tracks, smooth vibrations like a warm sonic blanket: this morning selection begins with some soothing classical records picked by Juniore, just to help you arise from Morphee’s kingdom. The whole thing with a bit of French accent and inspirations from the reckless sounds of the 60’s…

Ghosts, towns, and girls tales…

An all-female band, led by Parisian Anna Jean and with their surf-pop deeply anchored in the sixties, Juniore’s music is made of reverbed guitars coupled to vocal harmonies full of spleen and rhythms, inspired by a world of ghosts, towns, cars and girls tales…

Juniore’s selection

  • Santo & Johnny - Sleepwalk

    Juniore: For the lazy mornings, the tougher or the fuzzy ones. For the Sunday morning that follows a restless Saturday, a great deal of guitars made of cotton, creamy melodies, this track is like a syrup that gets your head (and organs) straight. As the mysterious Mary Poppins says: “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down”. Efficiency guarantees.

  • Margo Guryan - Sunday Morning

    Juniore: For the mornings under a grey sky, made of cotton (and for getting back to bed…)

  • Erik Satie - Gymnopédie N°1

    Juniore: For the morose and nostalgic mornings. Or simply the mornings full of serenity (yes, it must also happen, Satie’s Gnossienne or Gymnopédie is the best solution for a moment full of contemplation, a waking dream.

Mailtape’s selection

  • Juniore - Panique

    Olivier: With this track, Juniore transform their surf-pop into an addictive and disquieting pop. As we enter this new year, the world around us is becoming more and more worrisome, and Anna Jean uses this song to express her feelings about it. She makes a kind of mockery of it, by telling an inconsequential story of an unexpected attraction. With catchy lyrics, vigorous and agitated lines of guitars and organs supported by a restless drum, the whole thing put torgether into a hectic mix, Panique is like a sonic rocket that will boost your day!

  • GYM - Your Woman (White Town cover)

    Olivier: I’ve picked this track mostly because of this haunted bell melody that is the perfect answer to Juniore’s Panique atmosphere. Then, the bouncing bass line makes us nod our heads unconsciously as the indolent voice of GYM’s singer leads us into a really good mood! And I think the lyrics “I could never be your woman” introduce the next track of this selection very well…

  • Jo Wedin & Jean Felzine - Idiot

    Olivier: There’s nothing better than this song to pay tribute to the sounds of the sixties and to the iconic love duo that were recording at that time. While Juniore kept the “darker” sides of those years, full of cowboy boots and two-time motors, this song reflects the touching innocence of the era. Both singers act their role beautifully in this drama. It’s perfect to start the day with fresh and enthusiastic ideas.

  • Lemon Swell - Track

    Olivier: For the final track of this episode, I wanted to answer the first track “Sleepwalk” with an instrumental piece, made of aerial and psychedelic guitars. Some kind of an outro that closes this episode in a very cinematic way…

That’s all folks, thanks to Juniore for their selection and have a golden day!

Olivier.
