Remembering 2014 - 35MM

Here at the fake office we reject the notion that the most popular music is the best music, so it is inevitable that we will come across some underground faves. Our man from Austin by way of Japan, the great Fumi-Hito, brought us this loungy set from 35MM. The band is Fumi and his partner in chill, Claude McCan, who set out to reconstruct lounge music from the 50s 'with a sultry and polished style'. The result is a dope record that fits in the mix almost anywhere, anytime - yet it is always best with a martini in hand. Dig it right here

The duo delighted us with 35mm - a reconstruction of lounge music from the 50's and 60's. Elements of bossa nova, space age pop, tango, and jazz all mix for an intriguing and straight up FUN album that takes you forward and backward in time.
