Tahiti 80 - Puzzle (2001) Retail CD
This French quartet, who borrowed their name from a cheesy souvenir T-shirt, dress up horn- and string-swept 1960s pop bliss in a tie-dyed T-shirt and black leather jacket. With their intricate melding of woozy, reverberating guitars, jangling acoustics, sitar, mellotron, breathy, effortless vocals and almost ridiculously pleasant melodies, a listener would likely place them among their contemporary pop torch-bearers Supergrass or Super Furry Animals (further, lead singer Xavier Boyer's French accent is nearly undetectable). But what gives them away is that seemingly requisite French tendencymore… to leave no edge unsmoothed. Like their techno counterparts Air, Tahiti 80's production is aerated, refined and simply perfect like a silky mousse. Puzzle is carefree pop at its most elegant and substantive. Boyer's proclaimed adoration of the Kinks is evidenced in the more guitar-crunched tracks like the title track and "Hey Joe", and the charming "Mr. Davies" is a reverent tribute to Ray himself. In it, he sings, "He's considered a songwriter, and I am not--at this time". Au contraire, Mr Boyer, you are an exquisite songwriter indeed. --Beth Massa
