French new wave music
June 12, 2007 6:28 PM   Subscribe

The site French New-Wave isn't what you think it is. Neither dedicated to the film movement nor the band Nouvelle Vague it instead catalogs French new wave music from the 1980's. It has interviews and much other information, but the real treasure is the media section which includes a photo gallery, streaming radio and, most importantly, links to sites where you can listen to French new wave songs (unfortunately, some of the links don't work).

So Young But So Cold: Underground French Music 1977-1983 is a product you can buy which has 16 French post-punk songs on it.

I love that site! Another recommendation: Nos Années Punk: 1972-1978 is a book that came out in 2002; If you don't read French, however, I highly suggest the compilation of the same name as a nice aural intro of French New Wave.

Er, it was exactly what I thought it was after reading the first five words. Maybe it's a generational thing.
