      Shygirl

      Nymph

        Today, experimental pop artist Shygirl announces her debut full-length album Nymph due September 30th via Because Music. To celebrate the project's announcement, Shygirl shares the lead single "Firefly”. The 12-track album was created with a close-knit group of friends and previous collaborators including Mura Masa, Sega Bodega, Karma Kid, Arca and Cosha along with the producers Noah Goldstein, Danny L Harle, BloodPop, Vegyn and Kingdom.

        Nymph reveals Shygirl’s inner self-reflection in experimental vocal tones and deconstructed dance melodies and exhibits a new level of intimacy and emotional depth in her songwriting. Simultaneously asserting her power and freedom and yet still longing for love, she delivers us lyrical harmonies and catchy hooks telling stories of relationships, sexual desires and romantic frustrations. Over lush production, Shygirl brings us on the journey of what intimacy is like for a woman who’s seen as ‘too hot to handle’, someone sought after and overlooked at the same time. Shygirl’s melodies intertwine with the sounds of bassline, garage, dancehall and hip hop, all seamlessly flowing together like an artful ribbon dance.

        Pascal Comelade

        Le Non-sens Du Rythme

          Following 'Le Cut-Up Populaire', Pascal Comelade announces the release on September 9 of his new album 'Le Non-Sens Du Rythme'. Since his first record published in 1975, Pascal Comelade, a child of the frenzy rock of the 60’s and 70s’, has developed a profuse body of work including many musical collaborations (PJ Harvey, Robert Wyatt, Jaki Libezeit (Can), Lee Ranaldo, The Liminanas...) and non-musical collaborations (Jeanne Moreau, Sergi Lopez, Jean François Stévenin, Bob Wilson...).

          His compositions are reminiscent of MC5, Erik Satie, Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone, Suicide: a language that dances on a musical skeleton in perpetual movement by successive fusions, mixing folklore and underground, repetitive music and french chanson, pataphysical riffs and toy instruments.

          As a multiple artist, he has developed an aesthetic approach via a particular link to visual arts. He draws, paints and occasionally performs with painters Miquel Barcelo and Hervé Di Rosa.

          On his new album, "Le non-sens du rythme" (to be translated "The nonsense of rhythm", the title says it all), Pascal Comelade almost plays all the instruments, not only multiple pianos but also the Rickenbaker e.bass, the indian harmonium, various keyboards and even the tin can. He remains the undisputed master of the instrumental ritornello inspired by popular music as well as krautrock.

            “Electrified” also includes 23 classics songs , with featurings such as Peter Hook, Anton Newcombe and French pionners Laurent Garnier, Etienne Daho & Pascal Comelade.

            Features liner notes written by Iggy Pop, Peter Hook & Keith Streng (Fleshtones): because it’s only rock’n’roll.

            Charlotte Adigery & Bolis Popul

            Topical Dancer

              Today sees Belgian-Caribbean provocateur Charlotte Adigéry and her long-term musical partner, Bolis Pupul announce their debut album Topical Dancer, via Soulwax’s iconic label DEEWEE.

              Cultural appropriation. Misogyny and racism. Social media vanity. Post-colonialism and political correctness. These are not talking points that you’d ordinarily hear on the dancefloor but Charlotte Adigéry and Bolis Pupul are ripping up the rulebook with their debut album Topical Dancer. The Ghent-based duo, who broke out with their 2019 Zandoli EP, are rare storytellers in electronic music: they take the temperature of the time and funnel them into their playful synth concoctions – never didactic and always with a knowing wink.

                  The English Riviera (Instrumentals)

                    The Joseph Mount-fronted electronic pop collective Metronomy announce details of the forthcoming special vinyl release of the instrumental versions of their career-changing 2011 album The English Riviera, which is this year celebrating its ten year anniversary. The English Riviera (Instrumentals) are available to listen to online now and will be released on vinyl in November.

                    The Dinked vinyl edition of The English Riviera (Instrumentals) will be a cream coloured 12” vinyl with numbered sleeve, complete with transparent sticker sheets, A6 Postcard and Dinked sticker.

                    A love letter to the stretch of coast a stone's throw from where Joe Mount grew up, The English Riviera marked a breakout moment in the band’s history that would lead them to global success and see them constantly developing their sound for a decade to come.

                    Barry says: So, you know that perfect funky synth-pop powerhouse 'The English Rivera' by Metronomy?, yeah well imagine that but without vocals.. Oh, you can't? well if it's something you fancy then this, 'The English Rivera Instrumentals By Metronomy' might be exactly what you need. It's good, it's like the album but without the vocals.

                      Christine And The Queens

                      Chaleur Humaine - 2022 Vinyl Repress

                        Christine And The Queens is Nantes-born Héloïse Letissier. Moving to London to study in 2010, Letissier instead found herself drawn to the art and theatre underworld of Soho, where she met the drag queens of Madame JoJo’s who inadvertently helped birth Christine And The Queens. The following year she released the first of a series of three EPs, each one building praise and demand for her utterly individual brand of pop. Chaleur Humaine, her French-language debut album produced by Ash Workman (Metronomy) with multi-instrumentalist brothers Michael Lovett and Gabriel Stebbing, arrived in 2014 and has already gone more than five-times platinum to propel Letissier - named Female Artist of the Year at the Victoires de la Musique earlier this year - to phenomenon status in her homeland.

                        Already coveted by those in the know, last year Christine And The Queens took a step further into the international spotlight with a number of high profile European shows and scene-stealing performances at SXSW, a major 16-date North American run with Marina and The Diamonds and a solo sold-out headline show at New York’s Webster Hall. She capped a stunning year by joining one of her all time heroes Madonna on stage in Paris last week. She released her debut, self-titled UK EP in November and now 'Chaleur Humaine' makes its long-awaited UK debut. The album features EP tracks 'Jonathan' (feat. Perfume Genius) and 'No Harm Is Done' (feat. TunjiIge), and has been completely reworked for its UK release, featuring all-new English versions of French runaway hits 'Saint Claude' and 'Christine', amongst others.

                        STAFF COMMENTS

                        Barry says: Though 'Tilted' ('Christine' on the original French version, and seemingly now here too) was the first thing I heard from Christine et. al, it was on buying this album the fist time around that I realised how meticulously crafted and wonderfully produced the rest of her music was. This is still right up there for me as one of the best synth-pop albums of our time. See also 2018's 'Chris'.

                        Metronomy

                        Small World

                          Metronomy’s new album Small World is a return to simple pleasures, nature, and an embracing in part of more pared down, songwriterly sonics, all while asking broader existential questions: which feels at least somewhat rooted in the period of time during which it was made – 2020. Finding appreciation in nature and our roots, while reappraising the things we value as we get older are all things that are part and parcel of the human experience: though it has all felt accelerated and emphasised in this past year or so. Through the tumultuous ebb and flow of the years, Metronomy continues to endure, and Joe Mount’s ability as a songwriter, arranger and producer shines through on Small World, evergreen.

                          STAFF COMMENTS

                          Barry says: Metronomy's uplifting brand of jangle-heavy synth pop hits a peak on the shimmering uplifting snap of 'Small World'. It's definitely got Disney montage vibes, and is as rich and satisfying as any of their previous offerings while being even more effervescent and dynamic.

                          Mr Oizo

                          Voila

                            After meeting on Mr Oizo ’s "All Wet" album, Mr Oizo and his Italian mate Phra went back to studio.

                            6 years after, this time as an unexpected duet, they wrote and composed together a 9 song "Italian Hip Hop" mini album, also reminding the spirit of mixtapes such as done by Madlib.

                            Mr Oizo aka Quentin Dupieux, one of the most exciting French music producer & move director, offers a new musical direction. Mainly mid-term, different from some classic powerful French Touch 2.0.


                            STAFF COMMENTS

                            Barry says: Musical polymath, film director and general polymath Quentin Dupieux returns for his latest LP as Mr Oizo, and this time sees the all-rounder pull out a brilliant selection of crunchy percussion and smooth vocals into an old-school MPC-themed hip-hop marathon. Entirely off-piste but really well done as ever. More essential Oizo.

                            Music Sounds Better With You - 21st Anniversary Edition

                              Where to begin? I was 13 when this first came out; and I distinctly remember the music video on MTV - in their space suits: Alan Braxe with his synth, middle its Benjamin Diamond the vocalist and on the right Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk fame. Anyway, being snotty nosed, punk obsessed teenagers, the track didn't really register on our radars at the time, mainly cos it was on MTV along with 'all that other mainstream nonsense'. Fast forward nearly twenty years and I've hammered the shit outta this, one of the finest moments of 'filter house' (urgh) the world has ever seen. This Chaka Khan sampling beast has been played at 45rpm by DJ Funk, at -6 by Andi Handley and mixed into a variety of end-of-night melee's by Kickin' Pigeon. For me, it epitomizes the Roule sound, along with "Together" (DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter) - it's hypnotic, peaktime loops sending hordes of dancers spiraling into the speaker stacks as full on house music mosh pits erupt all over the shop. It deserves a place in every house music lover's home, and is surely crucial for anyone into the history of Daft Punk and French house. I can't actually believe we've never had this in the shop before; make a house a home and bag this aural essential now!

                              Day/Night

                                Parcels have always been a band of extreme light and shade: they’re from surf hotspot Byron Bay in Australia but living in Berlin for years; their sweet-as-honey vocal harmonies rival the Beach Boys but their live shows can turn into slamming techno rave-ups.

                                The band returns with an ambitious third studio album, Day/Night, a Double Record huge in scope and sound, whose hopeful messages of perseverance through difficult times are a balm for these uncertain times.

                                E.VAX is the project of electronic-rock duo Ratatat’s Evan Mast. Heading it alone, without Mike Stroud influence or input, his self-titled solo project is a more intimate, personal and playful exploration of this singular producer’s expansive vision.

                                Half recorded at home, half at a friend’s art gallery in Montana, the imposed global lockdown lent itself to a more considered and exploratory approach. He’d play songs at the wrong speed to see how it changed what he heard, or deliberately leave a melody untouched for months and then improvise over it after playing it anew for the first time. Unable to get lost in real life, he got lost in music.

                                Mixing thick, blankety atmospheres with modern drum programming (referencing glitch, drill and boombap, alongside warped downbeat flavours) and utilizing shining, resplendent melodies and instruments, the album creates a nice contrast between light and dark textures, punctuated with futuristic rhythms and decorated with casual flurries of eclectronic genius.

                                De Pelicula

                                  The psychedelic garage duo The Liminanas and French techno pioneer DJ/producer Laurent Garnier have now produced together “De Pelicula”.

                                  The result is neither a Limiñanas techno record nor a Laurent Garnier rock album. It is a record that feels like a walk on the wild side, one straight out of a film noir that was spawned from the need to write music that tells a story and rattles all traditional patterns in a (super)sonic trance.

                                  A heated road-trip spent chasing Juliette and Saul, two teenage rascals straight out of a ‘60s classic - think “Breathless” (original title: A bout de Souffle) meets Sailor and Lula - balancing on the southern border with Spain, knocked out by the heat and cheap liquor.

                                  Barry says: What a weird and wonderful mixture this is. The Liminanas' psychedelic groove works perfectly here with Garnier's propulsive electronics, with the end result being both wildly psychedelic and wonderfully focused. A superb, soaring trip of a record.

                                  Radar Rider / F.I.S.T (ED001 18th Anniversary)

                                    Ok, an 18th anniversay edition is a bit weird, but being as this was the first (and arguably the best) 12" on Ed Banger, the globe conquering Parisian label of the noughties, and featured a blinder from the dearly departed Philippe Zdar under his A Bass Day alias, I'm totally on board. 

                                    So, what will you hear on this limited white vinyl repress? Well, on the A-side we get a break heavy bit of downbeat psychedelia from Mr Flash, who assembles flanged hats and heavy drums with a blorping Scruff-styled bassline, then chops a few tasty samples from Floyd's "Echoes" for good measure. Meanwhile on the flipside, Zdar drops a frisky little e-funk wriggler complete with filter funk melodies and a hip-twisting bassline.

                                      Sons of Raphael are brothers Loral and Ronnel Raphael from London.

                                      Seven years in the making, their debut album, featuring singles "Revolution" and "He Who Makes The Morning Darkness", is a sci fi wall of sound, an orchestral fantasia that blossoms into a psych pop explosion.

                                      "Full Throated Messianic Homage", was written, arranged and produced by Loral & Ronnel, and mixed by Philippe Zdar, and comes in a standard gatefold black vinyl edition including a special 24-page lyric booklet.

All are united by a breadth of imagination, a love of hands-on artistry, and of course by the sonic craftsmanship of the Dewaele brothers themselves.

                                      Foundations is more than just a compilation of tracks from the DEEWEE label. It’s a beautiful object in its own right. As with all DEEWEE releases, Parisian art directors, Ill-Studio have created a gorgeous artefact that collectors will love. It’s also a wonderful audio experience, with new music complimenting and elevating the catalogue material, and the sequencing of the 27 tracks done with as much love as any artist album or DJ set. It’s an expression of the values of a musical family with the brothers at its heart and featuring their creative input throughout. Everything on the album has come through the DEEWEE Studios in Ghent, Belgium which was built to bring together their friends from around the world. In many ways, Foundations represents a new phase in the label’s existence, one that is aided by a new joint venture with UK and FR label Because Music.

                                      Renaissance

                                        The desire for change stirs from the inside. We either listen to it - or not. Aluna chose to listen. After widespread critical acclaim as one-half of multiplatinum duo AlunaGeorge, the Grammy Award Winning singer, songwriter, and producer establishes an unpredictable and undeniable signature sound on her 2020 solo debut, "Renaissance". Featuring contributions from Disclosure associate SG Lewis, Princess Nokia and Rema, along with production from Kaytranada, Scott Storch and Lido, this LP offers a synth-led hit of pop tinged with bass, house and RnB flavours.

                                          LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


                                          Numbered & coloured 7" edition. It all started with French songwriter Clara Lucianaís first record ëSainte-Victoireí (now platinum) which included a cover adapted in French of her favourite Metronomy song 'The Bay'. She then met Metronomy in Paris, shared artistic visions and eventually decided to conceive this joint 7íí project which includes her cover of ëThe Bayí & Metronomyís take on her own track ëLa Grenadeí. Joseph Mount & Clara Luciani imagined & created together the 7íí artwork"

                                          Sébastien Tellier

                                          Domesticated

                                            An electronica album that buzzes with humanity, his most melodically refined work to date and a joyous Franco-pop fantasia.

                                            The parisian pop genius took one of his famous leaps into the unknown with the release of his recent single ‘a ballet’. Sonically it was full of the character you’d hope for him to deliver - dreamy French electronica, classic pop songwriting and yacht rock-style sax. Thematically, however, it played with the unlikely parallels between music and the never-ending routine of domestic life. As he questions, “maybe the key to happiness is there, hidden under a dirty laundry basket?” setting himself apart from an ocean of beat-makers, Tellier wrote the vocal melodies first and then arranged the instrumentation around them. His surge of inspiration was such that he wrote 200 songs for the project, yet he also possessed the discipline to keep the final album to a taut and concise eight tracks.

                                            La Vita Nuova

                                              Following her unexpected new single ‘People, I’ve been sad’ earlier this month, Christine and the Queens today unveils a surprise new EP. La vita nuova - a prospect for a new life - draws strength from extreme vulnerability. 

                                              La vita nuova arrives with an accompanying short film of the same name, imagined by Christine and featuring the EP’s five new songs in as many sequences. The 14 minute film is an inward journey that sees the artist invest Opéra Garnier, the world famous Paris opera house, filling it with stories of ghosts and mythical creatures. Through the lens of long-time collaborator Colin Solal Cardo (Robyn, Charli XCX) and with choreography by Ryan Heffington (VMA Award 2014, Grammy Award nominated), Christine and her dancers appear in succession on the Opéra rooftop, its grand stage and most secret recesses, culminating into a feverish moment with Caroline Polachek, a collaborator on the EP’s title track.

                                              'Cerrone’s 17th album "DNA" opens with "The Impact", a throbbing track of bendy entanglements all with an environmental stance. Halfway through, we’re treated to an excerpt of a speech from Jane Goodall, the world-famous primatologist and ethnologist: “Every single day we make some impact on the planet. We haven’t inherited this planet from our parents. We’ve borrowed it from our children. If we get together, then we can start to heal some of the scars that we’ve inflicted.” It’s hard not to draw comparisons with Supernature, in which Cerrone declared his first warning about man’s impact on the planet, 43 years ago.

                                              This nine-track concept album is built on wandering contours and magnetic sparkle, from which bursts saturated oppressive synth pads ("Obsession"), a nod to PinkFloyd ("DNA"), and dramatic soundscapes ("Close To The Sky", "Experience") and clammy atmospheres that are delightedly languid. “What if I told you that the idea for Air Dreaming came to me after watching a video of a parachute jump featuring naked parachutists? When people ask me whether I’m still inspired by love and sex today, naturally my answer is yes.” Cerrone doesn’t deprive himself either of pushing Kraftwerk’s logic of unleashing robots on the dance floor (“I’ve got a rocket”, ”Let Me feel”), as his songs appeal to both the intellect and the body’s desire to move. “Let me dream, let me see, let me feel.”What better mantra for bringing this album full circle.

                                              Syrian wedding singer turned global dance icon Omar Souleyman releases his 4th studio album Shlon via Mad Decent / Because Music.

                                              On Shlon (Arabic for “how,” or literally “which color”), Omar Souleyman presents 6 new techno-meets-dabke songs of romance and love - singing poetry of a woman’s lips as sweet as Hillah’s dates on “Layle”; an intriguing woman he watches from afar whose kiss would be worth 10 million other kisses on “Shlon”; a lover ready to offer his beloved anything she wishes under the sun on “Shi Tridin” (“What Do You Wish For?”); a man in admiration of a woman with green eyes and blonde hair on “Abou Zlilif” (“Her Face is Like The Moon”); a song about love that will last forever on “Mawwal”, a traditional — all superimposed on complex techno arrangements by Hasan Alo, and based on the hi-speed Kurdish and Arabic dabke and baladi styles with the exception of “Mawwal” being presented in its traditionally slower pace.

                                              Shlon features double keyboard work from Hasan Alo, a fellow native of the Hasaka region in Northeastern Syria who has recently been active in the vibrant nightlife scene of Dubai. Azad Salih, a young Syrian man currently living in Mardin, Turkey, accompanies on saz, with the lyrics and love poetry written on the spot during the album’s recording session by longtime Omar collaborator Moussa Al Mardood - also currently based in Turkey.

                                              Omar Souleyman, who has collaborated with Björk and Four Tet, began his career as a prolific wedding singer, releasing nearly 500 live albums before civil war broke out in his native Syria in 2011. He then moved to Turkey and in 2013 released his Four Tet-produced debut studio album Wenu Wenu via Ribbon/Domino, which NPR called, "...a jam so visceral, thrilling and intense as to make the mysterious matter of earthly borders seem hardly worth the time to contemplate." His 2015 sophomore album Bahdeni Nami (various producers including Four Tet, Gilles Peterson and Modeselektor) garnered widespread critical praise including The Guardian, who proclaimed "It's so fast that the only appropriate way to engage with it is to wriggle your limbs. Melodies are both abrasive and ebullient, chattering endlessly like raucous birdsong," and 2017’s To Syria, With Love via Mad Decent placing Omar firmly in the canon of global electronic music.

                                              Souleyman has bolstered his growing status as a world and electronic music icon establishing an extensive international following after touring widely and performing at major festivals including Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork Paris and Roskilde. Since its founding in 2013, Souleyman has been an advocate for the charity "Our Heart Aches for Syria," which operates in collaboration with Doctors Without Borders. In that same year, he performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Norway.

                                              Omar Souleyman has been touring tirelessly since the release of To Syria, With Love, or in fact for as long as he can remember in the last 10 years. He has crossed the planet – now seeming quite small – several times over and looks forward to meeting his fans everywhere to celebrate the release of Shlon.

                                              The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Summer 08’, ‘Metronomy Forever’ features 17 tracks. Its length is born from a desire for breathing room, from not wanting to stuff the hits together like a bouquet of petrol station roses – a modern way of listening to music. Metronomy’s innate skill for blending off-kilter funk, energising club vibes and esoteric pop is interspersed with some mood-setting, glistening and melodic electronic tracks.

                                              The band’s leader Joseph Mount called upon a variety of inspirations for this album. Most notably, he wanted to replicate the feeling of listening to the radio, with an infinite quality, sumptuous songs of different styles, ever rolling, helping to lighten your mood. Moving away from the bustle of his former Parisian home to take up residence atop a hill in the garden of England had an impact, infusing the album with a sense of tranquillity and a calm joy that reflects the relative happiness of his existence.

                                              Also influential was time spent working on Robyn’s critically adored ‘Honey’ album, with a similar feeling of emotional, intense, carnal mania informing songs such as ‘Sex Emoji’ and ‘Salted Caramel Ice Cream’.

                                              ‘Metronomy Forever’ in name represents something looking backwards and forwards simultaneously, like Janus, something fated and eternal. You were made from dust and to dust you will return, that sort of thing.
                                              “What happens is when you’re making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you’re going to leave behind,” says Mount. “And then you realise that’s limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way… I’m making music, I’m going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children”.

                                              Barry says: From tender, lightly accentuated ballads and brittle melodic synth lines to huge, bombastic pop heft within the space of a couple minutes, and without batting an eyelid. It's classic Metronomy, brimming with confidence and skill, but tastefully underplayed. Metronomy forever!

                                              Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years, by both fans and their musical peers alike, The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews, Scotland, in 1996. Innovative and singular, their unique musical and aesthetic approach to everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries. Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation.

                                              “Heroes to Zeros” is the third and final studio album by The Beta Band released in 2004. It was mixed by famed producer Nigel Godrich and rose to number 18 in the UK charts.

                                              Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years, by both fans and their musical peers alike, The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews, Scotland, in 1996.

Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation.

                                              After a short hiatus the band gradually gravitated back into the studio and recruited noted UK producer Colin Emmanuel, aka C-Swing, to oversee the process of “Hot Shots II” which was released in mid 2001. Notoriously the band had intended to release "Squares", which featured a sample from the Günter Kallmann Choir's 1970 version of Wallace Collection's "Daydream", as the lead single. However after filming the music video and taking the single to radio it suddenly transpired that another single "Daydream in Blue" by I Monster featuring the sample from Günter Kallmann Choir recording was also to be released at the same time causing the band to release "Broke" instead. Touring extensively and supporting Radiohead in August 2002, they made No. 3 on Q magazine's list of "50 Bands to See Before You Die".

                                              Barry says: A killer second (full-length) outing from The Beta Band sees Mason & Co. straying away slightly from the longing indie of their debut (and first three EP's) into anthemic minimalist acousticry, dancefloor rhythms and throbbing background electronics, whilst still retaining their melodic thread.

                                              I've Got Trouble In Mind Vol. 2

                                                French psych duo The Limiñanas release their new compilation album 'I've Got Trouble In Mind Vol. 2' through Because Music on 16th November. Featuring rare recordings, 7" singles and unrelased material, the collection is the follow up to 2014's album 'I've Got Trouble In Mind'. 

                                                "We wrote and recorded 'The Gift' at home in Cabestany and then finished it Berlin at Anton Newcombe’s studio," explains Marie. "I’m pretty sure you'll recognise Peter Hook’s lead bass. He's been one of our heroes for a very long time. The video reflects on high school years in gangs; the mods, the skins, the rockabs and the rudeboys smoking cigarettes while hanging in the schoolyard. 'The Gift' looks at what's happened to two of these people over the years and how they may have missed out on a lifelong love story. The video is directed by Aurélien Richter and features actor and dancer Foulques de Boixo."

                                                One of France’s most loved treasures, The Limiñanas are Marie (drums/vocals) and Lionel (guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals). Hailing from Perpignan, the duo straddles the boundary between psych, shoegaze, and yé-yé. With hazy, reverb-laden hooks, combined at times with noisy distortion, and fronted by effortlessly cool vocals, reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot, the band is at once timeless and quintessentially French. The Limiñanas, who have produced records in their own garage for the last ten years, released their first rarities collection 'Ive Got Trouble in Mind' through Bill and Lisa Roe's revered 'Trouble In Mind' label in 2014. As with the first installation, 'Vol. 2' features rare and unreleased tracks such as the duo's version of The Kinks' 'Two Sisters' (recorded for a MOJO magazine covermount compilation, produced by Anton Newcombe and remixed by Jim Diamond (White Stripes/The Sonics), a cover of The Lords of the New Church's 'Russian Roulette' and live versions of fan's favourites.

'Vol. 2', despite featuring new mixes and live versions of old songs as well as never before heard tracks sounds like a best of. A great gift for Limiñanas fans old and new!

                                                  Released in 1999, the album “The Beta Band” followed the critically acclaimed compilation “The Three E.P.'s” (1998). With high anticipation for The Beta Band, the band originally planned to record the album in four separate continents, but financial constraints slimmed the recording locations down; however, the album was still recorded in a variety of locations and pulling inspiration from sources as diverse as Jamaican reggae, Disney's movie “The Black Hole” and Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart".

                                                  The band also originally intended the album to contain a bonus disc of two long form ambient pieces, ‘Happiness and Colour’ and ‘The Hut’, both of which lasted over 20 minutes and represented the band's desire to "make a record of sound as a description for something like happiness, where a distinct first part gives way to a distinct second part”. However, the band and label ultimately decided to remove these tracks from the album prior to release.

                                                      This is a clear perspective on Comelade’s musical universe and can be considered as an ultimate “best of” and a radical introduction tothis chaotic and uncompromising instrumental music. "Rocanrolorama Abrégé" (“abbreviated rockandrolorama”, in English) is the short version of the complete works and reworks of Pascal Comelade published at the end of 2016 as a 6-CD box set in a sold-out limited edition of 1000 numbered and signed copies. Pascal Comelade made this album as if it was a new and separate album, with tracks that he considers best represent his work, from 1993 to 2016, according to the principle applied with the Rocanrolorama box set: songs in their original form, alternative versions, reworks, additions…
                                                      This short version was conceived especially for a double vinyl LP format: four sides with six tracks each, which you can listen to in the right order, from start to finish, according to a logical, thought-out progression for each side (slow tempo, medium tempo, orchestrations, electricity, etc.), paying tribute to the concept behind the collection Rhythm and Blues Formidable.

                                                      After bursting onto the scene in the heady (hedonistic) days of French electro, Joakim has enjoyed a decade of globetrotting and cultural tourism, soaking up the sights and sounds while spinning diverse DJ sets, soundtracking fashion shows and art installations and taking on production duties for a host of A-list talent. His sixth solo LP, "Samurai", lands on the Piccadilly shelves this week, combining a whole load of stuff we love into one big lovable whole. Influenced by his journeys between NYC, Tokyo and Paris, as well as new age music and Yukio Mishima’s book, "Hagakure: Samurai Ethics & Modern Japan", the thirteen track LP glides through sequencer based ambient numbers, gentle synth pop sonnets, and wonky funk wonders to arrive at a neon-tinged cocktail of Eno's "By This River", Mac Demarco's gap toothed funk, and the magical melancholia of shop favourite Horsebeach. If ever there were an album tailor made for our collective Piccadilly passions, it's this one!

                                                      Electric Guest – LA-based duo Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton – have confirmed details for the long-awaited follow up to their 2012 debut. ‘Plural’, out March 3rd on Downtown/Because Music, breaks the group's almost five year silence with their most confident, catchy, fully-realized music to date, featuring behind the scenes contributions from Joanna Newsom, Haim, and Justin Young from The Vaccines.

                                                      The Line of Best Fit shared 'Plural' highlight "Back For Me" this morning, calling:
                                                      “Electric Guest at the top of their game - it's addictive (you'll be itching to hit repeat the second that final beat stops), brilliantly bizarre in places, and remarkably upbeat. We can't wait to hear more.”

                                                      Recorded in LA, 'Plural' infuses Electric Guest's off-kilter blend of electronic, pop and R&B with an even more adventurous spirit than on 2012's 'Mondo.' Written during a period of self-reflection, 'Plural' embraces Taccone and Compton's original instincts, forgoing detailed arrangements and falsettos in favor of a back-to-basics approach – strong, natural vocals, intuitive musical instinct, and unbridled inspiration. The result is a sonic mélange that sounds as if it’s from both the past and future, layering everything from 80s synths to iPhone drum machines to Latin and Caribbean percussion.

                                                      Woman

                                                        After bursting onto the scene with a string of brilliant and brutal electro-disco bangers in the mid-noughties, Justice have toured the world rocking clubs and festivals, won a Grammy (for their killer remix of MGMT's "Electric Feel") and generally speaking been a couple of complete and utter dudes. They followed up their dope debut "†" with the proggy wig out of 2011's "Audio, Video, Disco", pushing their sound into unknown territories and taking the club crowds along for the ride. Brand new LP "Woman" finds the French duo older, wiser and more comfortable, celebrating the finer things in life and soundtracking summertime drives with your loved one and children. The brutal noise of their debut has been tamed and polished by love, offering instead a shimmering electro-funk complete with exultant pop motifs. Let there be Justice for all!

                                                        Patrick says: Gaspard & Xavier return with their third LP, offering an older, calmer and more mature take on the disco-flecked electro which saw them conquer the world a decade ago. "Woman" is an optimistic offering of shimmering synth pop for daytime discos with your nearest and dearest.

                                                        Cosmic Machine - The Sequel

                                                          Olivier Carrié aka Uncle O chose to explore this effervescent and eclectic inter-zone for 'Cosmic Machine, The Sequel'. A second opus that takes us a bit further in time to introduce us to the dark corners of a French musical landscape where recording studio workaholics like Jean-Pierre Massiera or Roger Roger produced endless strings of records that challenged the laws of gravity (and sometimes the laws of good taste), where teenage heartthrob singer Alain Chamfort launched Araxis into space with a few synth notes, where drummer Cerrone enrolled in the Brigades Mondaines for the charms of a cover girl imagined by Gérard de Villiers and where the Anarchic System, The Peppers, Moon Birds or Arpadys dreamed of winning a one-way ticket to the moon. Some managed to land on our satellite, but all of them contributed to the space conquest aboard the Cosmic Machine. Châtelet Metro Station, Cassiopeia-bound vessel, the odyssey is just starting.

                                                          Suffering from burn-out during Air's 2010 tour, Nicolas Godin was looking for inspiration to reignite his passion for music. He watched a Bruno Monsaingeon documentary about Glenn Gould playing Bach. Godin was immediately attracted to this mysterious and inaccessible universe, which he wanted to explore when he got home to Paris.

                                                          Having made a statement with Air, Godin wanted to go back to the classical world, to grow up musically; to renew himself. Even at this stage in his career he took new piano lessons. He decided to start recording Bach pieces, “but not to make a Bach record with modern sound, I didn’t want to make a Wendy Carlos record; she’s already done it brilliantly in the 70s. The problem is how to do something new, because everything has already been done! But when I heard Glenn Gould talk about how to explore and transform the past, this was exactly what I was reaching for.”

                                                          Godin began a period of transformation, “taking parts of Bach’s scores, then creating new parts,” he recalls. “Sometimes only thirty seconds of Bach’s original music was left behind. But I want people to listen to Contrepoint without noticing that it’s Bach. And in the process, I discovered that I had made a solo record! But it’s more of a tribute to all the great composers that have inspired me. Making a record about Bach leads to all composers who have listened to Bach.”

                                                          Working in tandem with co-songwriter, arranger, keyboardist and Bach specialist Vincent Taurelle at AIR’s Studio de l’Atlas in Paris, Godin ended up with eight pieces. The end result is 'Contrepoint', a dazzling experience that conjoins Godin’s former habitual musical fusions with classical forms, taking the listener on multiple adventurous journeys, often within each song, with counterpoint just one of its many landmarks. It’s remarkably varied in tone and rhythm, splicing genres with a bold, punchy and yet sensual and sweeping feel, with a variety of enticing lyrical narratives, and a starry international cast of guests, such as French vocalist Thomas Mars (from Phoenix), Brazilian singer Marcelo Camelo, Italian author Alessandro Barrico, New Zealand guitarist Connan Mockasin and the choir from Macedonia’s FAME'S Project. But the unifying force of Contrepoint is Johann Sebastian Bach. Each album track uses a Bach piece as its source, before jumping off to all manner of new places. Glenn Gould is also in the mix, though more of a spiritual guide than compositional. The predominant influence on 'Contrepoint' is Godin himself, composing at a new-found level of inspiration, both structural and emotional.

                                                          It's hard to think of another artist who has their feet firmly planted across as many styles as the Mad Decent founder, head honcho and brand ambassador, Diplo. Equally immersed in Top 40 and hip-hop world as he is in underground club, indie rock and world music, the Grammy-nominated producer is embarking on his most ambitious year yet with not just the launch of the new Major Lazer cartoon on FXX, but also the release of a new Major Lazer album, 'Peace Is The Mission'. This will be the third studio album from Major Lazer, the dancehall collective spearheaded by Diplo with trusted co-conspirators Walshy Fire and Jillionaire.

                                                          Fans who’ve learned to associate Major Lazer with some of the biggest names in dancehall alongside up-and-comers and mainstream mainstays can expect even more exciting names on this go. 'PITM' features guest contributions from Ellie Goulding, Elliphant, Wild Belle, MØ, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Jovi Rockwell, DJ Snake, Tarrus Riley, Mad Cobra, Nyla, Chronixx and a re-work of the Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Pt 1. motion picture soundtrack song "All My Love" featuring Ariana Grande from Trinidadian star Michel Montano.

                                                          When Major Lazer first launched in 2008, tastemakers embraced the indie side project and niche underground media outlets championed the sound. Seven years later, Major Lazer have developed their sound to become integrated with pop music and beyond and continued their ascent, recognised by their peers, fans and media around the world as leaders in a genre they helped to build.

It's been noted that their are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Beck, Stereolab, Gospel, Yeh-Yeh, guitar fuzz freakouts, and Nugget's-era stompers in the Limiñanas music. All of which may be true, but Limiñanas' sound is irreverent and singular.

Three years ago, Soko released her debut album “I Thought I Was An Alien,” that featured the track “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow”, OST to the video “First Kiss” (about 100 million views).

                                                              The track skyrocketed to the Top 10 of the Billboard Charts and did about 11,5 million streams (No. 1 Debut On Streaming Songs). Soko has now revamped her once innocent yet morbid folk into an insolent follow-up record, “My Dreams Dictate My Reality,” .

                                                              Produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (who also produced her favorite band, The Cure) the album features the hypnotic duet “Lovetrap” with friend and lo-fi wizard Ariel Pink also.
