Sporting his long hair, thick beard and signature sunglasses, he bears a striking resemblance to a futuristic Jesus. And really, that deserves props.
Beyond the look, he always puts out solid music. Sébastien Tellier has been making sweet, sweet music since the release of his first album in 2001. He is not only talented with multiple instruments, but the guy can rock it out in three languages! Being a Frenchman, there has been some controversy around his use of English in his music, but that has really opened the door to a wider audience worldwide. His latest album Sexuality, released in 2008 was interesting as his label Record Makers collaborated with American Apparel for a 3 month pre-release exclusive to their stores. I remember seeing the album in the stores and hearing it on a few occasions. What makes the album really special is the fact that it was produced by none other than one half of what could be considered France’s most recognizable duo, Daft Punk.
For the pleasure of your ears, I have included a few tracks from his album Sexuality. The first two are some masterful remixes by some of our popular friends! The A-Trak remix is a definite show stopper and I remember Treasure Fingers dropping it on us at one of his shows. The place went absolutely nuts!

And finally, here is the video for the original of L’amour et la violence… its a really beautiful song and I had to be sure that you all got to hear it in its original splendor:
In case you have been living under a rock for the last year, this is Duck Sauce. If you happen to find yourself moved to dance while checking out the track, just go with it. The choreographed moves of the band in the video have cracked me up since the very first view. Edit: This video is not available for embedding – enjoy the track and check out the video here
