The debut album from AIR (labelled as “AIR French Band” on the cover – originally released on Source in France and Caroline in the US. My copy is a 2023 reissue on Parlophone via Vinyl Me, Please. (25th anniversary edition, with listening notes by Sophie Frances Kemp).

Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Nicolas Godin are the core duo, joined by Beth Hirsch on vocals on “All I Need” and “You Make It Easy.” I could leave this on repeat for hours – it does well in the background but also rewards close attentive listening.
