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.

click to enlarge New full album by this Moroccon artist, poet and musician, interpreting the traditional music of the Atlas mountains, with friends and family.

LAHCEN AKIL AND THE CHAABI BROTHERS- s/t - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Traditional music from the High-Atlas mountains in Morocco, in a minimalistic modern style. Lahcen Akil playing on a primitively selfmade lute-guitar (DIY in the best sense of the word) and singing, accompanied by his friends on standup-bass, clarinette, accordeon and percussions. http://lahcenakil.blogspot.de/

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

click to enlarge New full album by this bizarre trio from Metz/France. 9 tracks in between Noise-Rock, No Wave, experimental Avantgarde, and generally freaked-out weirdness. Most probably heavily inspired by MAGMA...? Limited edition on white vinyl. http://lesingeblanc.bandcamp.com/

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/

currently out of stock

MASSICOT- Suri Gruti - 10" - HARBINGER SOUND / RED WIG

click to enlarge New record from Switzerlands most exciting band! More of their truly original and unique Tropical New Wave Kraut Post-Punk sounds. Only two lengthy tracks, but with almost full album length (12 resp. 13 minutes playing-time). http://massicot.bandcamp.com/

MASSICOT / HOUSEWIVES- Split - 7" - HARBINGER SOUND / RED WIG

click to enlarge New single with one song each from Geneva's female trio MASSICOT and the HOUSEWIVES from London, two of the most interesting and uniquely sounding and experimental Post-Punk bands in Europe these days!
Always wondered what the terms "Tropical Punk" or "Tropical Wave" could stand for... now MASSICOT's "Kokteilis" sounds like a perfexct example for these terms to me. HOUSEWIVES’ "Exc.2281016" sounds a bit more angular and scratchy, no less as exciting. A perfectly matching split-single! https://housewivesband.bandcamp.com/

NI- Dedoda - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Space Noise Rock drones from Linz/Austria. With three guitarists and one drummer, NI produce complex structured and exorbitantly bombastic sounding instrumentals. Free-Jazz inspired, Noise shaped, and with nods to classical music. The more experimental Progressive Rock bands on SKIN GAFT come to mind, as well as MAGMA... Strangely surrealistic! https://nimusic4.bandcamp.com/music

ORCHESTRE TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP- Lentilleres/Elephants - 7" - RED WIG

click to enlarge Single featuring two tracks from recording-sessions with John Parish for the recent album. No useless leftovers, but two great songs with an anthemic character.
