Appaloosa - The Day (We Fell In Love)

1. The Day (We Fell In Love)
2. The Day (We Fell In Love) (Sis-Mix)
3. The Day (We Fell In Love) (Todd Edwards’ Liturgical Mix)
4. The Day (We Fell In Love) (Acid Girls Wept Remix)
5. The Day (We Fell In Love) (Edu K Psycho Lover Remix)

Lush Gallic electro pop from Appaloosa (aka Anne Laure Keib and Max Krefeld) with the original and alternate versions of his standout effort for the Kitsune Maison Compilation 6, backed with an awesome Todd Edwards remix and a fierce Acid Girls version. The original and 'Sis-Mix' are twinkling electro pop ditties sitting somewhere between Nouvelle Vague and Glass Candy, but it's the Todd Edwards mix that has really got us all giddy like a French schoolgirl. The vocals are edited and dappled with autotune for that indefinable Edwards touch, turning the track into an uplifting and high camp Garage-cum-Euro-pop killer with just a hint of Sally Shapiro in New Jersey circa 1997, guaranteeing a large grin on our faces. Acid Girls feed 'The day' through some squirming 303's and uplifting synthlines for another useful version, but it's really all about Mr Edwards' Liturgical jackers mix. Check!!!
