Death row

This wonderful track was featured in my selection for Peachr some months ago. It would perfectly fit in a Red Axes' mix too... (-- To download the track, use the "share" button with the arrow --)

Do you remember this Radioslave's track, Neverending ? So this one is (in a sense) like this except the fact that is a swiss private press of a one man band trying to do hip hop in 1983 ! This is the ten minutes long b-side without lyrics. It was recorded in Geneva but I don't have more infos... Really freaky slow mo electronic funk with FX. (Sorry but the bad quality of the mp3 but the track was too long for my free account) --(To download the file, press the button with the "share" button)--


Synth not synth

I'm totally obsessed with this track since I found the LP in a second hand flea market. This is perfection : vocals, lyrics, simple but efficient arrangements, melody. You can find another interesting song on this LP : Simili USA on the A side. It's more "disco" oriented but always with this "boy scout around the fire at the camp" feeling. Know what I mean ?

Supa funky track today by Carte de Sejour, a band led by the singer french singer Rachid Taha. If you love Mustapha dance by The Clash and that kind of tracks, you won't be disappointed... (- To download, just press the share button with the arrow -)


The return of the bimbo

Fresh delivery ! Home recording with some pieces of wax as usual. No tracklisting, hunt the records.


Etienne Perruchon - Generiques

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...

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)

Cool b-side in this cheap record. I love this bass soooooooooo much... Just in case you didn't noticed it, you can download the track with the "share" button. Enjoy


Minimal Compact

Very interesting documentary about the history of the band told by the members and their manager. Plenty of rare live footage. Must see.


Elaste vol.4

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.


Killed by deathrock : a Sacred Bones compilation

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...
