Bustre - This One's For You

This sublime release does not pretend changing anything in the peaceful world of chill music, but merely adding its small contribution to it, because there is never enough.
Beautiful atmospheres, slow rhythms caressing your weary brain cells, nostalgic melodies from outer-space.

Here's the ideal way to lower your tension to a normal level.

Take your time to listen to each track closely.

With a cat on your knees, it's even more effective !

Le Matin - Le Martin

Le Martin is a really weird album. It is quite an epitome of the kind of music you can find on the  Da! Heard It Records label. Dark melodies, electro braindance rhythms discussing chit chat and whatnot with each other, and in the back of the sound, strange lyrics, a little gloomy but quite funny (if you understand french, that is), they fit well in the general composition.

An album that you listen to in its entirety, without hitting the pause button, with wide open ears to be sure to gather a maximum of the strange sludge that sips through its cracks.

You'll see, it's a bit peculiar but after all, it's only spiritual music made of electricity.

The Freak Fandango Orchestra - Wild Goats and Useless Heroes

This album reminds me of the sweet early 2000's, when every single concert or festival had a carnivalesque fanfare band playing this kind of music, with planturous women, big bearded weirdos and desert-dry jugglers.

The Freak Fandango Orchestra, let's shorten to TFFO comes from Spain and plays some kind of ska with hints of gypsy and folkish music that will make everybody dance, even those who aren't desert-dry or planturous.

Now yes, it happened in the past that I said I hated ska music. And to those who would remind me of that I would answer yes indeed, but not this time.

See you later ! Don't forget to open your ears and to press play.

Jenova 7 & Mr. Moods - Time Travellers II

Welcome to the month of june, that means the end of school, success, failure, change, revolving doors, sun and... well, music.

I suggest we begin this sunny month with an album that we'll listen best while this troublesome gigantic ball of fire sets and lets nocturnal beings get out of their lair to listen to subtle rhythms, groovy flying saxophone solos and samples out of nowhere, on a long chair or not, with or without a glass of wine or a white beer with lemon at hand's reach.

Jenova 7 and Mr. Moods are artists of exception, especially in the world of chill music. Always meaning quality, you can just listen to everything they do and never get bored nor disappointed. You can go with eyes closed, to be sure, it's even better !

See you then.
