Fresh delivery ! Home recording with some pieces of wax as usual. No tracklisting, hunt the records.
Etienne Perruchon is a french composer who works for the movie industry. This is his first record : a private press (circa 1984) to illustrate the work of a painter named François Sylvand. The tools are not so numerous : DX 7, Fender Rhodes, TR 808 and Casiotone 403. Expect electronic lullabies and some minimalistic synths. Despite the fact that is not so rare, it's quite under the radar...
Etienne Perruchon - Generiques
Fantastic track by the famous french actress produced by Serge Gainsbourg. Nice lyrics, skanking guitar and this "seem to be pitched down" rhythm. This is the original but Ivan Smagghe did a dope edit of this on his self-released A few things from Ivan Smagghe compilation. (Press the "share button" to download the track)
A new chapter in the Elaste serie is always a good news. I must admit Compost is not a label I follow but Dompteur Mooner has always interesting selections. Ok, some of you gonna tell me that Cybotron, Barbara Norris or Gino Soccio are not really great discoveries but most of the tracklist is bomb-esque. I picked this one cause it's maybe the more obscure (the track was never released and Greg Wilson exhumed the masters some time ago) and in the same time one of the more catchy.
If you're in these minimal synth wave / post punk sounds from the 80's I
strongly suggest you take a look at this compilation. I'm really not into the usual stuff from Sacred Bones but, the boss, Caleb Braaten is a obsessive record collectors and picked some of his more rarest cuts to build this selection. No need to check, you won't find these records anywhere ! Buy the comp, say thanks and enjoy. Oh... this is the volume one so I presume a following will come some day...
