HYPERCULTE- s/t - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Duo from Geneva/Switzerland: Simone Aubert (also in MASSICOT) on drums, guitar and vocals, and Vincent Bertholet (also in ORCHESTRE T.P.M.D.) on contra-bass and vocals. Calling their music "minimalist transpop pre-kraut post-disco", you get to hear an extraordinarily fascinating sound somewhere in between LIQUID LIQUID, A CERTAIN RATIO and NEU!/CAN... 9 songs recorded and produced by Tobias Levin. http://hyperculte.bandcamp.com/

KEITH JOHN ADAMS- Roughhousing - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Great album by this guy from London. Filled with clever, catchy and witty, joyously upbeat and uplifting pop songs! Sounds smart and makes you feel good from start to finish. One song is called "Music In My Feet", and that's exactly what it sound and feels like. http://keithjohnadams.bandcamp.com/

L'ETRANGLEUSE- Dans Le Lieu Du Non-Ou - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge New full album by this twopiece from Lyon/France. In more than one way comparable to HYPERCULTE from Geneva, with Melanie Virot playing an electrified harp, and Mael Saletes on guitar, drums, and other instruments, both of them singing. 12 songs on this new LP, combining aspects of chamber-music alike Post-Rock with influences of African music! https://letrangleuse.bandcamp.com/album/dans-le-lieu-du-non-o-3

L'ETRANGLEUSE- Memories To Come - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Really unique twopiece from Lyon/France: Guitarist Mael Saletes (also in ORCHESTRE TOUR PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP) and classically trained harp player Melanie Virot. And both of them singing. An unusual combination with a hard to describe sound. It's a sort of experimental sounding, calm and softly swinging Folk-Rock. While the harp is generally known for a soft and crystal-clear sound, with Melanie Virot it can sound as well raw and dissonant. The album was produced by John Parish, also playing drums, bass or piano on these recordings, and former THE EX member GW Sok singing on one song.
http://letrangleuse.bandcamp.com/ with 3 songs to listen to, but the LP contains 10 songs in full.

LE SINGE BLANC- s/t - LP - RED WIG / WHOSBRAIN RECORDS

MASSICOT- Morse - n/a - RED WIG

click to enlarge First full album from this Geneva-based Post-Punk/No Wave band. Joyously playful and highly inventive music, that brings to mind references to the MEKONS and the EX, DOG-FACED HERMANS, LILIPUT, etc., but at the same time it's totally original! Check it out: http://massicot.bandcamp.com/
