The Child of Lov “Give it to the People” (Fehrplay Remix)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on June 21, 2013 by E.N.

Fehrplay_Give_It_ArtThe Child Of Lov has released Give It To The People (DS082D) as the next single from his eponymous debut album, which was released to critical acclaim in May. Gliding at suitably a laid back pace Give It To The People paints summer with a whole vibrant palette of colour, an ‘everything will be okay’ sentiment and breezy melodies.

Fehrplay’s remix turns the original track upside down, and gives it a proper pryda sounding makeover. Continuing to break new ground, Jonas was selected as DJ Mag Canada’s Cover Mix for June, and is definitely not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Hot Chip – Flutes (Video)new album ‘In Our Heads’ released on Domino on June 11th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2012 by E.N.

IN OUR HEADS
HOT CHIP | WIG293 | Released: 11/06/12

Recorded in London and produced by the band with Mark Ralph, In Our Heads is the band’s follow up to 2010’s intoxicating One Life Stand and their first LP for Domino. In Our Heads will be available on CD, LP and digitally. There will also be a special edition vinyl of the album available on gatefold double LP with a bonus artworked 7” featuring an exclusive track. A free download of Flutes is available immediately when pre-ordering In Our Heads through Domino.

The collective talents of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle and Owen Clarke have provided a consistently stellar output which continues to evolve with a deceptive effortlessness. While their lexicon of influences includes a diverse mix of soul, R&B, gospel, Detroit House, disco and funk, Hot Chip have created a uniquely identifiable sound. Since 2004, they’ve released a string of ambitious and creatively bold albums of soulful, lyrical and melodic electronic pop. Their impressive debut Coming On Strong was followed in 2006 by the brilliantly buoyant The Warning, which earned the band a prestigious Mercury Music Prize nomination. 2008’s Made In The Dark spawned an international mega hit in “Ready For The Floor”, which picked up a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Dance Recording’. With In Our Heads, an unadulterated delight of an album bursting with dynamic floor fillers, euphoric earworms and verbose synth-fuelled love songs, Hot Chip cement their position as the world’s most talented electro-romantics.

Trailer Trash Tracys ‘Los Angered / You Wish You Were Red'(Stream)

“LOS ANGERED”
Released May 7, 2012 on Double Six

At the beginning of the year London quartet Trailer Trash Tracys released their debut album “Ester”, a gorgeous, beguiling collection of pop songs with an intriguingly offbeam slant which quickly earned them glowing accolades from the broadsheets to the style press. The intervening months has only seen their profile grow exponentially, as they have journeyed around Europe on arena support tours and their mesmerising headline dates, centred around the sulphurous “Los Angered” – a cosmic fusion of 50s pop refrains and waves of drum machine patterns washing against Suzanne Aztoria’s intoxicating siren call.

Released on May 7 on Double Six, it is joined by another opportunity to familiar yourself with the quartet’s “You Wish You Were Red” (100,000+ YouTube views), which has been recently seducing new followers after featuring on recent Renault commercials.

Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains release new album on Domino USA( February 14, 2012)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2011 by E.N.

Pensive indie pop, delicate electronica, as well as North African guitar stylings and percussion combine on the forthcoming release by Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains. The new album, entitled E Volo Love (Domino USA) releases February 14, 2012.

In a centuries-old French church high on a hill, Malian-style finger-picked guitar riffs bounced off cabaret-ready piano lines. Whispering calabash brushed against shimmering minimal techno. All in service of a dreamy set of songs that became E Volo Love (Domino USA; release: February 14, 2012), tracks that straddle the catchiest of indie rock and electronica and the lush borders of globally inflected experimentation.

This is the world of Fránçois and the Atlas Mountains. Fránçois has opened for incandescent Afrobeat scion Femi Kuti, and he has played with effusive retro-rockers Camera Obscura. He’s leaped unexpectedly onto the indie scene in an English industrial town and learned to embrace the sounds of his native Southwestern France. He’s gotten lost in the outskirts of Fez and dug into the complexities of Senegalese mbalax’s rolling club beats.

Shaped by the quiet influence of West and North African sounds and by the gritty yet friendly vibe of Bristol’s underground arts scene, Fránçois and the Atlas Mountains make a return to roots—hometowns, lost loves, Western pop transformed in the crucibles of the Sahara or Dakar—utterly engaging and fresh.

BIO
Fránçois was raised on Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Prévert, the classics of French pop and poetry. He also grew up hearing tales from Cameroon, where his mother spent her girlhood. Yet the rural French kid’s mind was blown when he first heard grunge and pounded on a distortion pedal, and he started making his own tapes.

When work took him to Bristol, England, Fránçois immediately jumped into a thriving scene, one that included both the speed-of-weed trip hop of groups like Portishead and Massive Attack, and a DIY-loving arts underground where experimentation and collaboration were welcome. Fránçois, merrily collecting a menagerie of instruments and accompanying himself live on keys he played with his feet, fit in perfectly and soon connected with bands from The Pastels to Movietone to Camera Obscura, who invited him to join.

Yet there are other currents that run through Fránçois’s music and that flow across North and West Africa, back to Europe. Things clicked for Fránçois when he heard the brilliant African blues of Ali Farka Touré and the gritty Sahara rock of Tinariwen. He found himself wandering through Morocco, shadowing groups of Senegalese drummers, trying to master the polyrhythmic spree of Dakar’s dance music (mbalax, made famous by singers like Youssou NDour).

On E Volo Love, these fascinations get folded back into indie rock and electronica in an organic way. Inspired by Touré—and constantly mislaying his picks— Fránçois figured out how to touch the electric guitar strings and approach the bare fingered, rippling sound of Mali’s guitar greats. He invited Tinariwen engineer Jean-Paul Romann to add his imprint to the album.

And almost accidentally, E Volo Love gained an African pulse. As Fránçois was spending some time in his hometown of Saintes, he wound up playing a gig at the old church where the album was eventually recorded, with versatile drummer Amaury Ranger. A dance class had left behind a hand drum and a calabash, and the duo picked them up spontaneously during the show.

“The sound had a power and drive, but was gentle enough not to overwhelm what I was doing,” explains Fránçois. This sound, rich with the church’s natural resonance, blends seamlessly with the drum kit and beats of tracks like the album’s otherworldly opener, “Les Plus Beaux.”

“As we were putting the album together, the idea of return, of palindromes, kept popping up, which was perfect because I recorded the album where I grew up, around things I knew so well but was re-experiencing from the point of view of an adult,” Fránçois reflects. “It’s about things that never move, or things that return: sounds, people, feelings.”

Things that loop back transformed echo throughout E Volo Love, whether it’s the mysterious marimba sample from a field recording that merges into the bittersweet Afro-indie rock of “Edge of Town,” or the overwhelming nostalgia of the electronica-inflected “Bail Eternel.”

Opposites attract and coexist: a French cabaret piano line goes Congotronic on “Piscine,” horns add grit to a gentle indie ballad on “Azrou Tune.” The landscape on the cover looks like a blazing desert, but is actually a freezing morning: “The cover was shot at 7 AM in February on the coldest day you can get,” Fránçois recalls. “It has this strange feeling of things being the opposite at the same time.” Much like tension between airy and earthy that makes E Volo Love shine.

The first ever French Domino signings are ready to spread their wings over indie pop’s vast international landscape. With vivid looks and a slender body, Fránçois builds up castles in Saintonge, France, with Moroccan mountains, British phlegm and sturdy friendships. After seven years of passionate gigs and road trips across Europe which has seen them tour with Electrelane, Camera Obscura and most recently with Mercury-nominated King Creosote & Jon Hopkins, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains convey a magnetic presence on stage. A deep sense of lightness and sincerity sets in as voices, keyboards and African percussion blend into instant pop.

An open collective, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains has become a four-piece band over the years. Besides Fránçois who gives the band its name and soul, Amaury Ranger embodies its vibrating body thanks to the sheer intensity of his percussive skills. A new recruit, Scottish Gerard Black made a name for himself playing with Bill Wells and Findo Gask before joining forces with the band and leading an underground dolce vita in Bordeaux. Another Bordeaux stalwart, Pierre aka Petit Fantôme is a local musical treasure.
