France Rocks September Playlist:

Though summer is sure to become a distant memory this month, keep the season's spirit alive as we enter autumn, with this September installment of the monthly France Rocks Playlist: “Back to School (Part II)” which celebrates the wide variety of French-made music from artists touring the states in the next few weeks. (Devotees will recall our playlist from last year’s Rentrée, or “back to school” here)

Sonically enclosed here is a fresh mix of electro (Rone, Kartell, Zimmer, Madeon, Bambounou, Klingande), contemporary jazz (Shai Maestro, Kellylee Evans, Cecile McLorin Salvant), metal (Svart Crown), and pop/rock/everything-in-between (EDH, Meshell Ndegeocello, Alex June, Stromae, Soko).
