Song: "Sydney" by Caravan Palace
Nominated by: 191.249.97.176
Reason: Caravan Palace is a French electro swing band based in Paris. The band's influences include Django Reinhardt, Vitalic, Lionel Hampton, and Daft Punk.[1] The band released their debut studio album, Caravan Palace, on the Wagram label in October 2008. The record charted in Switzerland, Belgium, and France, where it reached a peak position of number 11The band formed as a three-piece. Loïc Barrouk took an interest in the project and booked the band a recording studio and a series of gigs. More performers were required for the live concerts and the other three current band members were found after searching on MySpace.[3]

The band became popular on the internet after releasing a number of demos and promo singles. From 2006 to 2007 they spent a year touring around France, and their first festival appearance came at the Django Reinhardt Jazz Festival in 2007.[3] Following this emergence, the group were signed by the Paris-based Wagram Music record label. They spent the next year recording material for their debut studio album.

On 20 October 2008 the self-titled Caravan Palace was released, preceded by the single "Jolie Coquine".[1] The album received praise for its traditional jazz inclinations,[1] and placed in a number of European albums charts. In Switzerland, the album reached number 72 and in Belgium it achieved a position of 42. The album performed best in the band's native France where it attained a peak position of 11 in August 2009, and remained on the French albums chart for 68 consecutive weeks.[2] The band released their second official single, "Suzy", on 24 February 2009.[4]

On 3 October 2011, the band released an EP titled Clash, featuring two new songs and four remixes of them. The band's second album, Panic, was released on 5 March 2012.

In 2014, the band remixed Drake Bell's single "Bitchcraft".[5]

The band released the single "Comics" on 22 June 2015, and their second single "Lone Digger" on 18 September 2015.

The band's third studio album, Robot Face <|°_°|>, was released on 16 October 2015.[6]

In 2015, they appeared on Later... With Jools Holland [7] on 27 and 30 October, and on The Jonathan Ross Show on 31 October. Subsequently, they appeared on Jools' Annual Hootenanny on 31 December 2016/January 1, 2017 singing a cover of Black Betty and Lone Digger.

Song: "Sky" by The Human League
Nominated by: 2601:3CA:204:F860:F91D:576D:3C54:F082
Reason: Over forty years after forming as an experimental electronic act, the essential trio of Oakey, Catherall, and Sulley still impress with subtle brilliance and a matchless songcraft. The silky and quite haunting "Sky" blends the raw genius of the original group with a mature pop sensibility which draws in new fans yet keeps the diehard Leaguers very satisfied.

If you ever thought the movie being filmed in the "Don't You Want Me" video looked interesting, here is your soundtrack. We might never know who the titular character is—a spy, perhaps, or maybe a one-off romance which dragged the singer from the depths of depression. But whoever she was, the mysterious Sky, and this song about her, are impossible to forget.

Reason: Peter Yarrow recorded this song in 1973 for his album: That's Enough for Me.

Song: "The Sons Of Fate" by The Protomen
Nominated by: 207.172.85.45
Reason: This song is just beautiful, its emotional and musical construct is one that can last for days. I feel like both this song and its album mates need a theatrical musical done for themselves... or maybe an anime... hm, but still it's a wonderful song. I personally love the album and plan on animating something for this in the future. It takes me back to when I was a kid and had to deal with my family's divorce. Let's just say this song and its album mates have given me company when no one would. ~ Stitchie Au

Song: "Hi-Heel Sneakers" by Tommy Tucker
