Hot Chip visited Paris earlier this month to showcase their new album but for the many that missed out there is still plenty on the agenda before April. Mr Scruff, Manchester DJ, will be providing a jazzy breaks night of dancing tomorrow night and the DJ collective based in Paris and New York, Animal House, are playing tonight, Friday 19th March. Next week sees Kieron Hebden aka Four Tet return to Paris, on tour following the release of his 7th album There is Love in You, which signaled a return to form for many critics.

If two experimental sets from English DJ virtuosos in two weeks sounds is a bit like hard work then it could be worth popping out to see old favorites the Cranberries or French indie stars Phoenix. Alternatively, mid-week we have Why or the Hidden Cameras who’s album Original: Orphan came out last year with some more quality videos. If one is in search of the best of French music, in the past one had to look no further than French electro. Though there is no chance to see the likes of Air or Justice as yet, French DJ Yuksek, who released his first full album Away from the Sea in 2009, will be playing at l’Alhambra on the 30th.

There is now plenty of French indie-rock floating around, Les Shades, who even sing in French, are playing at Nouveau Casino on the 30th. Favorites Skip the Use and Pony Pony Run Run don’t quite manage this – but both have excellent collections of oh-so-fashionable indie (synth-pop) playing in the upcoming months. Also shuffling into this group are Belgian based Puggy who are playing at Point Ephémère on the 31st.
