French Duo Housse de Racket release debut album Alesia on November 1st via Kitsune

Check out a sneak preview of the new album HERE!

French synth-rock duo Housse de Racketis back with a brand new album Alesia, out this August. Alesia comes as a follow-up to their wildly successful debut, Forty Love, which garnered critical acclaim. The first available track from the explosive new album Alesia, seen on Kitsune Maison 10, is “Chateau,” check out the remix HERE.

The French duo will be touring throughout America in December with fellow Frenchmen, pop trio Yelle.

For Alesia, Housse de Racket has teamed up with French super-producer, Phillipe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Rapture) to create a collection of eleven electro-pop songs in the vein of the bands’ own wide range of musical influences; from Ennio Morricone to David Bowie. The result is a unique compilation of tracks that embody the sound Housse de Racket has made famous, both through their first album and their live show. Recorded half in French and half in English, Alesia is an evolution of sound; a bold new direction for the bands’ sophomore album.

Housse De Racket, which translates in English to ‘tennis racket cover,’ are Victor Le Masne and Pierre Leroux. The two are highly sought-after musical collaborators with impressive resumes; they’ve worked with the likes of Chilly Gonzales, Phoenix, and Air.

Download Barry Adamson – Destination

Thirty-four years on from the first album he played on, the seminal Magazine’s post-punk classic “Real Life,” Barry has made an album that touches on the sonic stepping stones he’s used year by year to pave his way to the present. The memories and experience from performing and taking his work across the world with Magazine, the Bad Seeds, Iggy Pop, The Gun Club, writing for David Lynch, Danny Boyle, being nominated for the Mercury Prize, scoring an Olivier award-winning ballet, scooping the Best Short Story gong at Italy’s Piemonte Noir festival for his debut work of fiction and writing, directing and editing a movie whilst simultaneously heading back to grace the stage with a reformed Magazine during their triumphant 2009 tour have directly informed this album, coloring it with a steady, sure–handed experience that emanates from the swagger and fingertip fire of rock numbers to emotive, yearning noir ballads and new wave inflicted power pop.

Barry has ultimately channeled himself to make an album that is unmistakably Barry Adamson, gravitating finally to the core of who he is and revealing his findings to startling results.
