Air - "La Femme d'Argent" - Song of the Day [5/24/2014]

Today's Song of the Day comes from a very well-respected electronic duo from France. Air have been producing music since 1995. They have a great talent for composing lush melodies and layering them over crisp hip-hop beats. La Femme d'Argent is the first song off their most famous LP Moon Safari. It starts off by fading in a tribal drum beat along with some watery ambient sounds. Then suddenly, the bass comes in with a very mysterious but welcoming melody. The song keeps the same melody throughout, yet Air keeps adding more instruments, modifying the beat, and therefore changing the whole mood of the song.
Definitely a must listen for any fan of electronica.
