Antena - Camino Del Sol (1982)

The peerless reissue gods at Numero Group unearthed a real treasure with this one. This French trio creates a compelling, unique fusion of electro-pop and smooth latin rhythms. Fans of Air and Miho Hatori will be especially pleased with Isabella Antena's whisper-soft vocals. Although they didn't get much recognition when they were on Factory Records in the early 80's, this group was definitely ahead of its time. Their dreamy, gently swaying, cosmopolitan sound, is the type of lounge music that makes you reconsider any negative connotations previously associated with that designation. Truly sublime.

I'm really interested in hearing this, but the link is down. Any chance for a re-up? Thanks for putting up such a diverse set of music, perfect for an ADD record junkie like me.
