Catalog no.: BBLP0000104

Item ID: 461805

Fresh Nigerian synth-funk from Burkina Faso, recorded sometime between the late '70s and early '80s. These groovy dancing sounds, killer keys and slow burners will kill you softly. Pierre Sandwidi stands as one of the finest Voltaic artists from the 1970s. He belonged to an unsung elite of Francophone artists such as Francis Bebey, G.G. Vickey, Amédée Pierre, André-Marie Tala, Pierre Tchana or Mamo Lagbema. His entire released output consists of less than ten 7 inches, two LPs and a bunch of cassettes. A man from the provinces, he always favored social engagement and carefully crafted lyrics over instant fame. His words and music challenged General Lamizana's dreary presidency, which ruled the country from 1966 to 1980.

Also available: LE TROUBADOUR DE LA SAVANE 1978/1982 (CD).

VIROT, FRANÇOIS - MARGINAL SPOTS

Second solo album by this French lo-fi pop folk artist, who once got nicknamed the one person Animal Collective. A record that is as much a laid-back digest of his discography, an actualisation of his obsessions (colourful drums, catchy but devious melodies, referential ... read more »

J.C. SATAN - J.C. SATAN

Brutal and complex, furious and spirit-evoking, making spikes then descending, this album strikes the nail of black-garage-gospel with the hammer of Viking gods, right in the middle of a storm of decibels that lance the climate, electrically charged by each of J.C. Satan's ... read more »

GASC, JULIEN - CERF BICHE ET FAON

With 'Cerf Biche Et Faon' (Stag, Deer and Fawn), Julien Gasc guides and plants us in the forest of his emotions, playing with his ethereal voice and lyrical instrumentations, against the gentle crackle of lo-fi cigarettes. This is his first solo album after many rich ... read more »

REGAL (FRANCE) - TWO CYCLES & A LITTLE MORE

A vinyl release of the third album by this French band. Musically we get a mix of dirty garage rock -more or less in the style of The Black Lips- with country and folk vibes. Of course the group never neglects its punk background either.
