Tahiti 80 Release New Album, The Past, The Present & The Possible
February 22nd, 2011
 (Human Sounds Records)

“…creamy, dreamy delicacies…” – Pitchfork
Mark your calendars! Tahiti 80, the critically acclaimed French sensation, is set to bring a fresh wave of sunshine to warm our hearts this winter with their newest album, The Past, The Present & The Possible, to be released on February 22, 2010 on the band’s own Human Sounds label.  The band’s song “Darlin” was also just remixed by John Talabot.  If you haven’t already grabbed it at  RCRD LBL, where is just premiered, then click HERE to stream/download the track.
Originally hailing from Paris and Rouen, Tahiti 80 has released four albums and nine EPs since their US debut in 1999, including the recent Solitary Bizness EP, which dropped in late October and is currently available on iTunes. Now comes the next move for these audacious Frenchmen: Comparable to Blur’s transition from Leisure toModern Life Is Rubbish,or perhaps clutching towards Bowie’s chameleon-like early day personas, The Past, The Present & The Possible is T80s most radical departure yet. 
Tahiti 80 is now a six-piece unit. The additions include long time touring members Julien Barbagallo & Raphaël Léger on backing vocals, keyboards, and percussions/drums changing the position of co-writer Sylvain Marchand due to chronic ear damage.  Their influences seemed to align, leading them to call The Past, The Present & The Possible both willingly and reluctantly “our Postmodern album.” It’s is by far the tightest, most complex and thoughtful instrumentation of the band’s career. Many first time happenings include Xavier programming beats for a record and Médéric Gontier singing lead on the warm, acoustic breezes of “Want Some?”. “Defender”, PPP’s opening track shows no mercy to the listener, building a new layer of infectiousness every thirty seconds.  In a same breath, the lyrics deliver the emotional content to either sing along or just soulfully listen.

Produced by Xavier Boyer and Pedro Resende, and mixed by Tahiti alumni Tony Lash (Wallpaper For The Soul, Axe Riverboy, Cardinal, Eric Matthews) and Tore Johansson (Puzzle, Cardigans, Franz Ferdinand), the album title is a nod to Factory Records Artwork Designer Peter Saville’sintroduction to Reasons To Be Cheerful; The Life & Work of Barney Bubbles: “The Past is the sum of strong roots, The Present is us living in our times, and The Possible is one’s interpretation of the future.”

The album represents this interpretation tenfold. While both The Past and The Present have taught us what to expect from the Tahiti lads, The Possibleis by far the tightest, most complex and thoughtful instrumentation of the band’s career.

Introducing La Femme: First US Tour Dates, Free Mp3 “Sur La Planche”

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on November 24, 2010 by dk

French Lo-Fi Surfers La Femme

Announces Debut EP, First U.S. Tour 
Free MP3: La Femme – “Sur La Planche”


“On a surf board / on the beach, on the wave, I’m searching for sensations / on a surfboard, in the tubes, I’m searching for sensations / you better not try and stop me from riding that wave, I’m invincible / if you dare push me in the tube, I will be waiting for you on the beach, on the wave” ­– La Femme, “Sur La Planche”
As La Femme prepares to for their first U.S. gigs, the band remains an enigma. Hailing from Paris, the group walks the line between erotic avant-pop and lo-fi surf rock. Their music can be flippantly light-hearted or aggressively dark depending on their mood. The one thing is clear though: La Femme is part of the 2010s, a decade that has yet to be written.
Listening to La Femme’s upcoming four-track EP — set for release on December 13th on 3rd Side Records — the band’s music takes many shapes, none of which are completely in focus. “Sur La Planche” (“On the Board”) hurls down gigantic waves of surf guitar with ease and style.
Download the track HERE 
 “Françoise”is a faceless sonic sensation, while “La Femme Ressort” (“The She Spring”) is a snapshot of a rainy Paris side street. The band is at it’s most driving with “Telegraphe” is a French new-wave rave up, filtered through The Ventures’ back catalog. It’s a brand of music that’s as forward-thinking as it is reverent to its influences. Keep an eye out for the band’s debut EP.

La Femme will be spending the next 2 months in the U.S.A., playing the East Coast and creating general mischief. Additional tour dates coming soon!

Wild Fish EP Available Today; Drops “Wild Child” Single Online For Free  here

Last Gang Records is pleased to announce their latest signing with We Are Enfant Terrible. We Are Enfant Terrible make ecstatic, sugar-rush electro indie rock, songs that make you want to party with childlike abandon. A French trio composed of three Lille natives who share a passion for fashion, video games, and wildly-thoughtful dance music, they perform with guitars, drums, and a reprogrammed Nintendo Game Boy.

In their short run as a group they’ve developed a passionate fan base on both sides of the Atlantic, and their new Wild Fish EP, available today, showcases buzz-worthy tracks like “Wild Child,” which is available for free download here. You can also check out the wild kids in action in this video for the track here.
With Wild Fish, the group continues spreading their message of joy, tolerance, and celebration, and their upcoming full-length promises more mirthful inspiration. “We sometimes listen to the music in reverse to have new ideas coming from nowhere,” says Thomas of the group’s creative process. “We are always trying new processes to produce the songs, to keep it fun.” Their debut full-length arrives in early 2011 on Last Gang Records.
