Le Futur Pompiste: "Seeds"

I came upon Le Futur Pompiste sometime this past winter and have been casually listening to them on and off since then, but today their song "Seeds" came up by chance on shuffle on the good ole iPod and it's just so good I figured I must post it. The band, five guys and one gal from Finland, play a sort of 60s/bossa/lounge influenced pop that fans of Broadcast and Stereolab would pretty much rejoice in.

[MP3]: Le Futur Pompiste :: Seeds (Very Highly Suggested)
Whenever I listen to this song I just can't help but want to go outside, lay down and just watch the clouds move through the sky -- the sunny sky, of course. Half of the reason this band succeeds so well in the music they make is Jessika Rapo's totally authentic smokey-sounding vocals, plus her vocal melodies aint too shabby either. The subtle keyboards in the verses juxtapose really nicely with the pulsing keys they eventually turn into for each chorus, exemplifying exactly what a true chorus is supposed to do: lift the song up.

"Seeds" comes from their 2004 album Your Stories And Your Thoughts, released by Siesta Records. If you'd like to, you can buy it from Siesta's shoppe, right here.

It's a brilliant song indeed, and the album as a whole is great.

As the album as already a few years old (and has been glued to my cdplayer - I'm not sure this saying works, but you know what I mean) I was wondering if there is something new from them in the pipeline ...
