Jean-Benoît DuIn correlation with The Virgin Suicides: 15th Anniversary Deluxe Edition box set and 180g vinyl reissue, Warner/Parlophone will also be releasing Air's five album discography on remastered 180-gram vinyl with original artwork, including their first EP Premiers Symptômes (1997), Moon Safari (1998)10,000 Hz Legend (2001)Talkie Walkie (2004) and Pocket Symphony (2007).

nckel and Nicolas Godin have an uncanny ability to continually coax a magical range of tones from the wide array of instruments - analogue and digital - that they turn their hands to. Their third full-length, Talkie Walkie might not feature the stellar cast of collaborators that 10,000 Hz Legend gathered, but it certainly doesn't relinquish their tight grip on unashamedly synthetic postmodern pop.

Tracks like "Venus" and "Cherry Blossom Girl" recall the skewed pop of French pre-cursors Indochine. Dissonance, flipped melodies and synthetic held tones - that hold up to scrutiny against the high points of progressive rock - form the backbone of Air's ensemble moments. "Alpha Beta Gaga" - it's title forms an apt summary - encapsulates their talents precisely. Five minutes of collision-fun featuring: trickling analogue pulses, synthesized whistles and finger picking banjo in a context that amply demonstrates the (artificial) intelligence that forms the cornerstone of their prodigious output.
