'En Voyages' to Pierre Vassiliu, was not only the title of an album of his, but also a philosophy of life. Travels were not for vacation or rest. They were synonyms of meetings, new music and sometimes, simply, life. These experiences around the world nourished his work, and his career allowed him to set foot on every continent. But his most beautiful travels took place in recording studios. When Pierre was discovered by Eddie Barclay, he released an album where mainstream pop, Latin rhythms and Herbie Hancock's 'Headhunters'-inspired jazz-funk were perfectly mixed. Vassiliu switched to RCA, which marked the beginning of his 'African' period. But he became depressed from the music industry after sevral failures. By the beginning of the 2000s, Pierre's recording career seemed to be at a standstill. It took the strength of a handful of fans from his town of Meze to allow a final album to be funded: 'Pierre Precieuses', a blend of Africa, Guadeloupe and Latin America, with an Yves Montand cover, a "techno" track and a folk song. Not long after the release of the album, he was diagnosed Parkinson's disease. Pierre passed away in 2014. Comes with download code.

Also available: EN VOYAGES (CD).

VILLEJUIF UNDERGROUND - WHEN WILL THE FLIES IN DEAUVILLE DROP?

The music of the Villejuif Underground is the result of happy accidents and unholy alliances, something that was never meant to be but became an astonishing fandango of sorts. Think Fat White Family covering Oingo Boingo with Beat Happening's gear. Think Beck's 'One Foot In ... read more »

REGAL (FRANCE) - TWO CYCLES & A LITTLE MORE

A vinyl release of the third album by this French band. Musically we get a mix of dirty garage rock -more or less in the style of The Black Lips- with country and folk vibes. Of course the group never neglects its punk background either.
