You might get the impression that Filles Sourires is a kind of cover-blog, like Liza's Copy, Right?, right? Truth is a love a good coverversion, and lately I'm bumping into really nice ones, that I just have to post here. Take Hektor for instance, a southern France-based band that turned itself into a Postal Service-like electro-pop-project, making and exchanging music via mail and internet. Hektor added the sexy-voiced Carine to their members (be sure to listen to Lololita on their MySpace-site), and after recognition from French rockmag Les Inrocks, they started to play live. They recorded a rocking French version of PIL's This Is Not A Lovesong, a new wave-classic that was also soflty redone by Nouvelle Vague.
