While we're on the subject of new francophone music, this recent comp is a not-bad-at-all overview of the 2002 scene. It's actually a German release, but seems to be available internationally.http://www.musicline.de/de/product/673790001429

Heldon (Richard Pinhas), Renaud Paravel (à la Gainsbourg), film music from Jacques Tati's movies, Miss Kitten and ...
Listen to http://www.novaplanet.com (Radio Nova) if you want to get a feel for French and good int'l music.

There also was a 3 CD longbox of FH released recently.
The new Alain Bashung CD's just out, it's supposed to be great and quite dark. I've been told the new Katerine album wasn't that interesting.
Other names to check :
Autour de Lucie (especially the first album)Ginger Ale (sung in english, with a good cover of Siouxsie's "Happy House"Avril
Coming in january :
Suburbia (great pop stuff in english, indie pop meets Pets Shop Boys dancefloor mood... secret cult stuff recorded in 1998, they finally get the album out and will tour)
I'll let you guys know when other artists come to my mind.

Three French playlists, admittedly more or less permutations of the same bands/artists, so not very broad in scope. It's all very obvious (and was probably compiled with the assistance of wine) but stuff I like.
Do suggest some tracks for Volume Quatre ...
