Nicolas Godin, one half of the French band Air, is releasing his debut solo album, Contrepoint, on September 18 via Because Music, with each song inspired by a different Bach composition. Now he has shared the fantastic 7-minute long jazzy instrumental track "Bach Off." It partly plays like the soundtrack to a 1970s cop thriller (à la Dirty Harry or Death Wish), but also has hints of Air (and Bach of course). Really great stuff. Listen to it below via Stereogum, who premiered it.
