Just a quick editorial this month, with an appreciation for all the people that have visited the blog over the past month. We managed to hit record figures last month, with over 55,000 pageviews. So thank you.
This of course gives us a bit of a challenge to match this in forthcoming months, but we're certainly up for the challenge. If nothing else it shows the demand for information about French acts is certainly there. French music, to the Anglophone audience, is no longer something to be filed as exotic or strange, but actually vibrant and vital.
Maybe with this higher profile thanks to acts like Christine and the Queens, Charlotte Gainsbourg or some of the emerging acts that urgently deserve to be heard, there's more need for information, informed criticism and shared enthusiasm. Hope we're able to provide some of that.
As always, you can contact us at johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be.
I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do drop me an email. I'm always keen to hear new things, and relay information about acts I already know and love.
The blog is also on Twitter as @viveleroq, although that's pretty much just an autofeed when we update with a new article. You can usually find me on my personal Twitter account quicker, @karnag
If you're around Facebook, remember to like the French Music Podcast UK page, where you can get regular updates with both fresh and vintage French music.
Thanks as always to the good folks at Oui Love Music From France.
