JULIEN GASC (Fr / Born Bad Recs)
FFO : Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier, Serge Gainsbourg

Four years after the inenarrable “Cerf, Biche et Faon”, “Kiss me, you fool!” leads us far far away, into swarms of sound and sentimental, twisted tales, on a quest for illumination that traverses the rich palette of human passions.

The title was taken from a graffiti discovered in the ladies’ toilets of a London pub. It is through this peephole that we consider, like a voyeur, the paradoxical complexity of this album: At once witty, noble and degenerate, Julien struts his way through it with all the nonchalance of a night-owl dandy. A troubadour of modern times, he sings of unresolved love, self-mockery, the trivialities of daily life and the search for the Absolute.

The fruit of an exceptional artistic collaboration (including Laëtitia Sadier, John Linger (Neils Children), Cathy Lucas (The Oscillation, Vanishing Twin), and Joe Watson), this contrasting, emotional and heterogenous album nonetheless forms a whole. Here, mirror plays, surrealistic songs and decadent poems unfold elegantly, seductive in their effortlessness. Countering the current norms, “Kiss me, you fool!” cultivates its powerful identity far from today’s musical cliques and fads.

LA HOULE (London/Angers - Beko disques)

Based Between France and London but without losing its French heart, La Houle (meaning ‘The Swell’ in their native tongue) is the musical project of Geoffrey Papin and Simon Sockeel. Together, they create a special kind of noisy pop, with cosmic synths, shoegaze guitars and synthetic rhythms woven through with cold and complex Baudelarian lyrics. After an exile across the Channel where the band improved their live in the East London venues, La Houle releases a first EP in March 2017 that defended
the following months around England and France as well. Digged by the anti-record label « LaSouterraine», the band released a compilation of 8 tracks demos that will form a first album, entitled
« Première Vague », will drop in January 2018 on Beko Disques. A shimmering noisy surge, where she searches from the top of the wave, which of passion or tenderness will defeat.
