Noughties #91: Bed "Spacebox" (Ici D'Ailleurs, 2003)

Bed is the project of Parisian Benoît Burello and chums. They have released three great albums throughout the decade, and this is the standout. Their sound is very similar to Elbow's, in that it smooches along to a "nice" jazz bass and piano groove, with enough new wave sensibility to prevent the scene from descending into finger snapping muso trance.

Highlights: - the gap - plainfield - the wood bunch
