Louis Minus Seize

Louis Minus Seize – Birds And Bats

Louis Minus Seize - Birds and Bats

suggested by Heskin Radiophonic
Saxophone, piano, electric bass guitar and drums make up this distinctive quartet of musicians, with a distinctive quartet of improvised jams, heading out in a vaguely free-jazz meets punk territory. Brilliant.

Daylight Rain – Lazurite

Daylight Rain - Lazurite

suggested by Imploded View
Daylight Rain seems such a perfect name for such a dreamy EP – synths glide in an out, percussion bloops and despite the whole thing should be chilled and relaxed, it is bursting with energy, discordance and a warped sense of fun.

Juanitos – Soul Africa

Juanitos - Soul Africa

suggested by Heskin Radiophonic
Juanitos are our second French group, and they are a bunch of white guys playing black music: Afrobeat, Reggae, Funk and Dub. But don’t let that put you off! Although the music may be homage, when it’s this good, I don’t really care. An EP to put a whacking great grin on your mush.
