La Chansons took form in 2004 when Greg and Carson began dating. Like in a modern fairytale, Greg asked Carson if she wanted to be in a band with him on one of those dates and they have been spreading their kitschy electro pop ever since.

Two albums have been made so far – Love Love Love All Day and the latest, Midnight Aerobics. Old aerobic movies in particular seem to be a inspiration for the duo, not only with song titles as “Workout Love” and “Leotard Stories” but also visually in Carson’s campy 80’s art and their videos:

Bonus fact: Recently turned electropopper Kyle Andrews sings background vocals on “Cinderella Tonight”.

Kyle Andrews

October 20, 2008

Perhaps third time is the charm for Kyle Andrews as his latest album, Real Blasty has gotten quite the praise in the press:

Real Blasty is the breakthrough album.”
– Timothy Zila, Patrol Magazine

This is a bed-room rock Brian Wilson of depth and character. Most highly recommended.”
Dot Shop

His previous efforts, full lengther Amos In Ohio and EP Find Love, Let Go were both released on Badman Recordings, but this time Andrews has set up his own label, Elephant Lady Records for the release of the self-recorded, self-produced Real Blasty. It’s a quirky but sincere album, positively sparkling with electronical flutters and catchy hooks, which is quite the change from his former acoustic sound.

Besides reinventing himself, Andrews has also found time to tour with Josh Rouse, and open for  Peter, Björn and John. Now though, his focus is on Real Blasty which will hit stores January 20th, 2009.
