Oh the joys of xm radio. I am no longer a slave to clear channel's limited playlists and I actually hear an occassional new band that doesn't sound like everyother band out there. So, if you love early eighties new wave.... but can't get enough Bossa Nova (and dig French accents).... then you are in luck. This morning on my ride to my real job, I listened to a couple of track from a French cover band called Nouvelle Vague (which means "New Wave" in French and "Bossa Nova" in Portuguese), in which they covered the Cure, Joy Division, P.I.L., the Clash and Modern English. Its weird, relaxing and strangely pleasing.
