Trailer Trad Tunes: This is What You Should Be Listening to This Spring

I've found a station that is quite extraordinary. As you know, I'm particular about my music and I have a hard time finding what I can consistently listen to. Obviously, typical radio stations give me hives. Mass-produced Fm crap whether it be country, top 40 (does that exist anymore?), or Urban obviously is unlistenable. In addition, I quickly tire of robot-curated play lists too whether they be from Spotify, Pandora, or even YouTube. Even a lot of college and alternative radio doesn't satisfy me. Our local college station (I miss WKNC NC State radio!) is like Appachian State's station in that it seems to subscribe to a kind of robot 'oldie alt.' play list that spits out decade old college music like like it's current. Don't get me wrong, I like and respect a lot of it but, really, there are more groups than The Arcade Fire, The Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, Death Cab, and Interpol.
Alright, enough lead up. Ready for what you need to listen to, like now? The easiest way to listen is to go to and type in Le Son Parisien. Le Son Parisien is a Paris-based station that primarily specializes in electronica and shoe-gaze. It works so well all day long. The sounds are nearly all listenable, fresh, and cool. The hipster dorks in ear-shot will soil their selvage. Great to chill to yet also great to workout to. Beats ANYTHING I've found in the States.

Here are a few random examples played lately.
