#songoftheday = Mcbaise – “Paradis Du Cuir”

If you took Phoenix, Hot Chip and Passion Pit and chopped them up in a blender then made a gorgeous painting out of them and that painting could play music, Mcbaise is exactly what it would sound like.  OK, so that’s a bit of a stretch, but those are the three bands I hear in Mcbaise’s seductive, and rather playful, sound, which also nods to Cut Copy and Chromeo.  His new single, “Paradis du Cuir,” is the perfect song to listen to after a night out at the club.  You come home, take a shower and get all that sweat off of you then you’re nice and cool in your sleepwear and you need something chillaxing to listen to before heading to bed.  This is that song, which appears on his new album Windowsill.

Mcbaise is an illustrator and musician originally from the south of France, living nowadays in London. From playing drums, saxophone and percussion in a jazz band in Cannes as a teenager, to being part of multiple rock bands in London, he’s been on quite the journey.  And it’s all lead up to this.  So, give the man some respect.  Pour yourself a nice glass of wine, sit back and let his music relax you until you drift off to wherever dreamland takes you.  (By the way, his song titles are indeed in French, but the lyrics are in English.)
