In our most Parisian Podcast yet we cover the latest album by the oh-so-cultured-electro-pop-turned-lounge-singer MEG. It is best heard while sipping espresso and considering which fine bagette to buy at the local boulangerie. Sexy Zone's latest single, on the other hand, is best heard after turning the volume all the way down. Trust us, we're experts.
