Luna’s slo-mo masterpiece Penthouse is one of my favorite albums of theirs… so I spotted their latest foray into music in commericals immediately – even though it’s the unlisted bonus track on the album. The music appears in a recent Cadillac Escalade commerical and fits pretty well into the vibe. They must’ve gotten someone who knows more about indie pop at Cadillac’s commercial music group, because lately their commericals have really been picking some good ones (there is one with a great song by M. Ward).
Unfortunately the snippet of song that is repeated omits what I think is the funniest part of the song, where in the background you can hear someone sing-speak “OOh-ooh” in a really high voice once in awhile. I can’t really explain it, you just have to hear the full song for yourself since it’s not in the commercial.
I’ve seen a lot of people mislabel this song. It’s true that Laetitia Sadier from Stereolab does sing the girl part on this song along with Wareham, this is not a Luna original. It’s a cover of a Serge Gainsbourg song where Brigitte Bardot sings the girl part. A great unlisted track on the album… unfortunately, I don’t believe they have the bonus track from Penthouse on Itunes… they do seem to have a version on Luna Live, though.Support Indie Music:
