Outside the Box:
St. Germain

The Arts & Entertainment section sees several volunteers walk in and out of The Gazette doors; however, every so often, one volunteer stands out. For his sample CD review, Arthur Thuot crafted a rather interesting piece of work. With references to hymens and whores, Arthur’s review can definitely be classified as falling outside the box, and makes for an entertaining read. If you’re easily offended, you likely won’t enjoy the piece; however, if you like things a little bit different, read ahead.

St. Germain

Blue Note

Combine Moby and Miles Davis and what do you get? The balding corpse of a mixed-race vegan? Not quite. Tourist, the latest release from France’s DJ extraordinaire, St. Germain (a.k.a Ludovic Navarre), follows the highly acclaimed 1995 album Boulevard. The masterful melding of samples, house beats and jazz influences is a perfect introduction to the genre dubbed “nu-jazz.”

For the uninitiated, this album will break your aural hymen and impregnate you with salty stickiness, leaving you panting in exhausted bliss, wishing you had a Malboro to light up afterwards. With instantly catchy, replayable tracks like “Montego Bay Spleen” and “Sure Thing,” St. Germain ensures his album is more infectious than a Thailand whore. But comfortably, with little burning, swelling, itching or excrement. Very little.
