055/100 - “Moon Safari” by Air

I remember renting “Moon Safari” by Air at my local library. I was intrigued by the cover: knew there was a connection with the graphic artist Mike Mills and wanted to know more. I really didn’t expect the moog synths and vocoders; the easy listening vibe; I was instantly hooked.

I saw Air as an underground, not-mainstream band; and I loved them for it. They had a foreign mystique that intrigued me and really complemented their retro-futurist sound.

They have yet to repeat the overall excellence of “Moon Safari” but they have had moments of brilliance since then.

Why only 100 words?
