1. Ben Frost performs ‘Black’, a new track from his as yet still untitled,unfinished, and difficult record which is “as yet to be ready in any shape, form, or manner. I guess this means we’ve got an exclusive. So enjoy. Joining Ben are Valgeir Sigurðsson, Sam Amidon, and Sigríður Sunna Reynisdóttir.

  2. "Le soleil est encore bien haut lorsque que nous pénétrons dans l’Elysée Montmartre, où une foule éparse attend 65 Days Of Static, Don Niño ou encore… Rien. Mieux vaut attendre Rien, d’ailleurs, puisqu’ils ouvrent la soirée par un set ramassé, puissant, mémorable. Leur post-rock, plus épique qu’hypnotique, efface peu à peu les cinq musiciens. C’est d’une seule voix qu’ils entonnent The Sun Is Always Right. Avec sa rythmique musculeuse, flanqué de guitares précises et de claviers bruitistes, ce morceau athlétique tutoie sans peine le meilleur d’un genre dont on croyait avoir fait le tour.

    Lorsque nous sortons, le soleil semble timide, mais il est toujours là, vaillant dans l’été parisien."

  3. If anyone would ask me some advice for a free trip to “Melancholia-meets-Ghosts land”, I would definitely recommend Matt Elliott.
    The Bristol born singer is a self made musician, playing since he’s 16. “I remember playing violin in high school. Well, I remember pretending I was playing, moving my fingers in the air…”. Because Matt Elliott thinks “music shouldn’t be taught this way” to kids, he simply stopped going to school. When he was about 14, he tought he
    « couldn’t have any other job, 'cos this is the only thing I’m good ».
    More than 15 years later, he played with Sonic Youth at the Brooklyn Brigde, went on tour with Yann Tiersen, and performed in Brussels with Cocorosie.
    His past relationships seem to inspire him, even « being romantic sucks, because you always suffer ». Though he likes to keep on talking about it, as his new single title is « The pain that is yet to come ».

    Matt Elliott biggest dream ? Play with Paco de Lucia, « and that’s maybe gonna happen thanks to a friend ». Influenced by Lucia’s Andalousia, Balkans and arabic cultures, his music is a must-listen. If you ever wanna travel for free.
