Darksunn, Melange, New release On Monster Jinx


First, you should know that i'm a huge Dune fan.
The books, Lynch's movie, the documentary about Jodorowski vision of dune's universe, the music (and I'm thinking of Zed's Visions of Dune on Infiné, not really Toto even though),...everything really

So I was intrigued when I read the Title of Darksunn's new record, Melange, which is the most valuable substance in the galaxy!!!

The tracks don't dissapoint. hip hop, electronica, future beats.
The sound is grand and it'll make your head bop for sure.
In short, another cool Monster Jinx release.
 
Watch out for Shai-Hulud though, he might be hidden underneath one of those dunes.

Ryley Walker, Primrose Green LP on dead Oceans


Wow, Primrose Green by Ryley Walker, what a discovery. I heard a promo version of the record at Caroline Music today, a cool record shop in Brussels, and I was totally blown away.
I hadn't been impressed by a folk record in a long while, but  here everything sounds right, in place and his voice his great.

Highly recommended!! And judging on the people's reaction in the store, I was not the only one loving it.

Rupture, Israel Suite LP reissued on Digger's Digest/ French Attack


I was in the mood for jazz and this new Digger's digest/French Attack reissue popped up on my facebook feed. coincidence? I don't think so! Excellent timing, but it also means I'll have to eat more pasta this month (or the life of a music addict)
The preview sounds amazing and the history of this record really is interesting as well. Read Digger's Digest press text herebelow.
 
The record is avalaible now at Digger's Digest and French Attack.
Pressing of 500 copies.
 


 
 
Official reissue of probably the rarest vocal jazz funk album produced in France. Conceived by Sylvain Krief (ex-drummer of the Michel Fugain's Big Bazar and better known as the mysterious Airto Fogo) with the help of the french song writer Boris Bergman and pianist Jean-Pierre Mas who composed severals tracks. This clearly impossible to find brilliant concept album has not been recorded in the goal of expressing the political vision of the musicians. As Sylvain states "it was more a bunch of friends that I gathered. Yves Chamberland, owner the Studio Davout (also known for producing another cult french masterpiece : Les Masques) let the band using the studio, while rehearsal we recorded several tunes during May & June". Guest artists like Nicole Croisille, Michel Fugain also gave a little help to their friend for some chorus, while rythmic section was guaranteed by Jean-François Jenny Clark on bass and Georges Locatelli on guitar. Sax legend Jean-louis Chautemps makes some quick apparence also. The long esoteric piece "Israel Suite" on side 1 relates the struggles of young Nation of Israel and is musicaly inspired by the electric funky jazz fusion of Herbie Hancock and also influenced by the modal jazz of Arvanitas or Gilson. The B side mostly composed by Jean-Pierre Mas features 6 beautiful pop jazz chansons fusion that instantly reminds Cortex "Troupeau Bleu". We don't really know exactly how many original copies were made but you can bet it is under 100 and we are now sure it was never commercialy released. Reissued produced by Digger's Digest & French Attack at 500 copies. Don't sleep on this essential french Rare Grooves 
Our Official fac-simile reissue of The ultimate iconic long time uncovered French vocal jazz funk Holy Grail is Out Now !

The Brazilian Boogie Connection: From Rio to Sao Paulo (1976 - 1983) on Cultures Of Soul


The good people at Culture Of Soul sent me the tracks a while back but I didn't really had the time to check the tracks out and then I forgot.
Today i went to a record shop, found out they had the comp, listened to it and bought it immediately.


I would have bought it on the strenght of the Marcos Valle tracks alone, but there's much more to this comp, like the Tarântulas with Saiba Ser Feliz, their rendition of Don't Stop Til You get enough.



Or Painel De Controle

The track selection is exquisite. 
The Brazilian Boogie Connection definitely is a disco boogie keeper!

Expect a track from it on my forthcoming mixed comp.
