FATCAT RECORDS

Following a break of almost three years since the release of her debut album, French pianist / composer Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch returns with the stunning "Époques", her sophomore album for FatCat's pioneering 130701 imprint. Witnessing an increased assurance and dynamism in both Emilie's playing and composing, "Epoques" marks a big step forward for the London-based artist. A bold and adventurous album that alternates between passages of emotive, sinuous solo piano; stirring compositions for viola and cello and some beautifully sprawling electronics, it has been masterfully pieced together to further reveal a unique and intelligent sense of artistry, and a composer who really does deserve your full attention. "Époques" is a deep, forceful, at times difficult, listen - a true shifting through the various registers of emotion, from dark to light. Whilst fans of artists like Max Richter, Dustin O'Halloran and Jóhann's Jóhannsson ought to surely find much to love in this album, and parallels may be found to a progressive new breed of female peers like Claire M Singer, Lucy Railton and labelmate Resina, it is a record that genuinely sees its maker finding her own space, fully formed and conclusively set aside from peers and influences.

Breathe Panel

Breathe Panel

    Breathe Panel are a Brighton quartet who combine their shared love of West Coast Americana, krautrock and drone music. The result is a lush yet dynamic indie rock, with strident guitars providing a counterpoint to soaring vocals and has led to a release on esteemed south coast label Fat Cat Records.


    Glasgow’s prodigious talent C Duncan released his critically acclaimed and Mercury Prize nominated debut full-length ‘Architect’ last July, wrapping up an extremely successful first year with a headline tour and stunning sell-out performance at Union Chapel.

    Follow up 'The Midnight Sun’ sees the bedroom producer return with a more expansive and experimental second offering, blending electronic elements and sweeping synth sounds with his signature layered vocals and dreamy instrumentation.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Pulsing sidechained synthetic swells and driven bass throbs are joined by soaring, angelic vocal echoes and shimmering falsetto sweeps. In parts delicate and restrained, but gracefully segued into comforting and glimmering shoegaze/pop masterpieces. A relaxing and tenderly flourished collection of ambient gems.
