    The Adelians: our first soul record out on Feb. 15th

    Our next release will be unleashed in less than a month and it’s a new fruitful collaboration with the marvelous Q-Sounds Recording from Montreuil. If you like it hot, fuzzy and catchy as hell, you will undoubtedly be obliged to stomp and dance to the first Adelians album, one of France’s best female fronted soul unit (listen to their first track here)! Available everywhere on Feb. 15th 2016. Sortir des disques de soul, on en a toujours rêvé. Et grâce à nos chers amis de Q-Sounds Recording, c’est en passe d’arriver : notre première collaboration avec cet excellent label de fins connaisseurs (aka les hommes qui travaillent, entre autres, dans l’ombre des talentueuses Little Clara et Charlène) prendra officiellement effet le 15 février avec l’album de The Adelians, une véritable déclaration d’amour au genre, qu’il s’agisse de soul légèrement naïve et acidulée en français ou puissante et sauvage en anglais. Un[…]

  • Suiyôbi No Campanella - Jugemu vinyl

    Suiyōbi No Campanella, right in time for Xmas

    Suiyōbi No Campanella, one of the most talked-about Japanese band at the moment, is having a brand new record out right in time for Christmas on Specific Recordings! Jugem’ je t’aime is a six-songs original record whose tracklist (Napoléon, Marie-Antoinette, Jeanne d’Arc…) refers to the particular bonds that unite France and Japan. It’ll be officially out in a couple of weeks both in Europe and Japan. Housed in a flashy artwork courtesy of Alegori graphic studio (Tokyo) made in collaboration with Komuai, the band’s charismatic and mischievous singer, and presenting an exclusive laser-etched b-side which, put side by side, give an explanation to its rather mysterious title, our seventeenth reference will be released in a convenient three-into-one version: one yellow wax LP + one CD + one download coupon. With a 700 unit one-time only pressing, Jugem je t’aime will be available for orders and downloads right here and via our[…]
