We’re guessing that the mood is a bit low at the minute for some, so here are three musical escapes so we can forget all this for a couple of hours. Flashes.
5 BELLES SAISONS – PY
Py’s new EP, 5 Belles Saisons, is a walk on winding earth path inviting to introspection and self-reflection. Hurt or suffering, Py’s voice never hesitates to go high on tracks like J’attendais and Céleste. The notes are fair and balanced, and the lyrics are in the front. We can’t help but think about the classic side of French variety of years ago which stays along with some acoustic and electric guitars. On this simple EP, Py doesn’t create a revolution but nicely adds his stone to the building.
COLLISION – JULIETTE DIXO
The french-speaking artist Juliette Dixo has unveiled Collision, her first EP, at the beginning of the month. It’s a great time to discover her universe and her soft melodic electro-pop music. Straight away, Clair de Lune presents itself like the record’s hit. The voice and rhythms are bubbling are compensating for the instrumentations we like less (Madame). We can bet that next summer we will hear a lot more of Juliette Dixo, or at least we hope so, especially when we will be able to party again together.
LOCAL BAND ASKED TO LEAVE – SUGARTONE NOISE CO.
Straight from Michigan, the Sugartone Noise Co.. have released a rocking new album. With their garage rock, this opus is as qualitative as the self-depreciative humour it contains. And with a title like Local Band Asked To Leave for their record, we get the idea, especially when it opens with the very literal track Warmup. Yeah, a warm-up. Putting forward heavy riffs and guitars (Point Nemo) and beautiful bass lines inspired by blues (Seattle), it is impossible for us to be impassible when listening to this brilliant album. It instantly became a favourite.
