Overview

Tales of the Forgotten Melodies

Taking his cues from other forward-thinking electronica/hip-hop acts, namely DJ Shadow and RJD2, Wax Tailor (aka French sonic collage artist JC Le Saout) makes a striking impression on his 2006 full-length debut, Tales of the Forgotten Melodies. Although Le Saout is mining well-worn territory, his heavy use of samples and his knack for establishing a highly cinematic atmosphere set him apart from the pack, as revealed on his cut-up, movie dialogue-laden version of "Que Sera" and the dreamy "How I Feel," which weaves in the unmistakable voice of Nina Simone.

It's easy to think of this album as a soundtrack - the influence of movies in the music is more than obvious, it's intrinsic. Each track has an attitude and spirit to it that would lend itself perfectly to a good, slick, action movie. In my mind, images of Get Carter, The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, Bullit flashed through to the tunes of Que Sera, Hypnosis Theme, How I Feel, and others. Wax Tailor's hip-hop roots run strung throughout the album, as well, creating a wonderful, eclectic atmosphere. If you listen to this, get ready to get cool.
