Taking their name from a slow paced game of the bowling family - Bocce are a Canadian trio who are nothing like a gentle ball game - aimed at old men (saying that my dad is pretty rad). There are keyboards galore and some spot on drumming, both combine to create this dancey and mischievous sound that you could perhaps equate to sounding like a mix of Think About Life and The Octopus Project. 'Hi Birdbear / Can't Reason Do It?' is their album, good it is, released back in 2006 this definitely counts as a missed gem.

You may have heard these, off an incredibly popular time specifice French music compilation that is arguably better than BIPPP. The compilation is So Young But So Cold Underground French Music 1977-1983
Mathematiques Modernes - Disco Rough (Ivan Smagghe Edit)
