(3/22/09) Monty’s Catch of the Day – Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air)


Today I bring you the sounds of Jean-Benoit Dunckel, aka JB Dunckel, aka Darkel, aka half of the band Air. He has recently scored the soundtrack¬†to a French comedy motion picture entitled, Cyprien, which is about a 35 year old virgin who stumbles upon a deodorant that causes women to lust after his body. Sounds pretty dumb and I wouldn’t expect too much from this film (or if it will even hit the U.S.). However, the soundtrack is pretty impressive and sounding pretty much like an Air album. Dunckel is no stranger to scoring a film, since it was the band Air that took on the music from Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides. On the Cyprien soundtrack, he does a nice job of blending electronic instrumental tracks with brand new songs with Dunckel’s ethereal voice. Today’s catch is entitled “Total Love Warrior Song”, and you can listen to a clip of it down below. Enjoy!
