JULY 2007: ANOIS + SONGS FOR SUNDAY PARLOURS SPLIT EP
Wise people change. We're always mutating, and last time we read, science says you too.
You'd expect us releasing a buncha crazy new stuff right now, in this update, but, instead we've decided to wait a little longer. Mostly because a great part of the featured songs on our coming compilation are still TBC, but also because SAPPHO's debut LP finally arrived; in the meanwhile ANOIS, NUURO, and SONGS FOR SUNDAY PARLOURS presented the following releases causing greater surprise than the first time we heard them. We fell in love all over again. Now it's your turn.
On the other hand, we proudly welcome Clément Marion (a.k.a. JOIEJOIEJOIE) to our roster, and encourage you to download his 2006 EP; lo-fi pop to sooth the rainiest silky hearts.
Clément Marion is French and currently living in Belgium. He's the kind of songwriter that would attract the attention of people who dig Sofia Coppola's soundtracks. Guitar strings from an imaginary futurist languid sunset in France, dream landscapes to whistle cheerfully non-stop -la joie joie joie-. A cabalistic seven as the number of themes that inspire the search of an alternate reality, and letting out the child within.
Anois / Songs for Sunday Parlours
Split EP EP3-TPR-013
Both projects were inevitably put together by destiny -or by accident, as Malte from Songs... says they met-, and we're absolutely celebrating the fact that we were able to put this release out to you for free. Somewhere between the development of Anois' forthcoming debut album and the latest release of Songs for Sunday Parlours, both couples were kind enough to gather a handful of precious folk pop lullabies for us.
We met Alejandro Ghersi when he used to be a 16 year old emo kid from Venezuela. He was too shy to sing on his own, he wouldn't even dare to play a guitar alone, yet, he kept trying until the point he found himself in New York City, living on his own, with one LP recorded, various songs in respected compilations such as annual Darla's "little secrets", and more recently, two EPs. This is the latter.
They recall the crash of the classic Wall of Sound, circa Loveless, against Pavement's roughest work passing through Brian Wilson's Smile spirit. Either way, except for Sappho, there is absolutely no other band based in Mexico that resembles, with such elegance and tenderness, the greatest moments of indie rock's dearest and everlasting road.
We're from everywhere, but we prefer to party à la mexican style. English is not the best language of all, but it's handy to use, and it helps people like you and us communicate with others through the internet easily. So instead of bitchin', you should start learning it too. Maybe one day, we will all be able to reinvent it.
. . .
We love demos or any sort of promotion. But show some respect, and at least, listen to what we like first.
