Yann Tiersen and Breathe Owl Breathe

$18-20

The classically influenced moodscapes of French musician Yann Tiersen approach Franco-folk and avant-garde rock, but he's best known for the whimsical soundtrack to Amélie. Tiersen made an appealing and approachably brainy pop record with last year's Dust Lane, with catchy but compositionally complex songs—like "Fuck Me"—that could catch the ears of Andrew Bird and Broken Social Scene fans. Tiersen is joined by the mighty triumvirate of Michigan's Breathe Owl Breathe, who make engagingly daffy hippie music—shown to best effect on last year's winning Magic Central, an album that makes Breathe Owl Breathe's modus operandi (living in a cabin; skinny-dipping; making drugged-out jangle-folk tunes) sound completely irresistible.
