Plastic Bertrand - "Tout Petit La Planete" by Matt Bomarr

plastic bertrand - "tout petit la planete" (download) [audio http://www.divshare.com/direct/14989042-6d1.mp3]

Belgium's Plastic Bertrand is probably best known for this song, which you've most likely heard, but never knew who it was. While I love that song, "Tout Petit la Planete"  (released in 1978) is the one that really stands out to me. Sort of Italo-disco-y, with touches of vocoder. Not all of his recordings were great, but when he was on, he was on. buy

M - "Pop Muzik" by Matt Bomarr

m - "pop muzik" (download) [audio http://www.divshare.com/direct/14984047-e59.mp3]

Classic synthpop track from British band M. Released in 1979 on their New York • London • Paris • Munich LP (which featured occasional handclaps and what not from David Bowie). Most of their other work didn't really sit on the same level that this song did, but it's still worth checking out. The artwork for the 7" above is singer Robin Scott's daughter Berenice, who grew up to become a musician herself. (thanks, Jordy) buy
