Jardin du Luxembourg Single
CHIM03 - 2010
After a handful of acoustic gigs in New York, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger has undergone a metamorphosis in the studio, emerging as an electric band on their first single, "Jardin du Luxembourg", recorded by bassist/producer Mark Ronson. Full of whimsical wordplay and eclectic instrumentation, this pop gem could almost pass for a mid-1960s relic. The b-side goes modern, re-imagining Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot's 1967 recording "Comic Strip" as a tongue-in-cheek hip-hop romp with the help of French star Matthieu Chedid (aka M).
