Few days ago, I had the pleasure to organise a show here in Rouen (France) with some really great artists. The first act was Prairie Litière. Besides having a weird name, the french noise duo had completely blown the audience's mind with a noise and uncompromising set, reminding me Yellow Swans and such noise makers, which was really good. The second act was Chicaloyoh. Alice Dourlen gave us a beautiful and dark moment of psychedelia. Mesmerizing! And finally High Wolf who delivered an amazing trance-like, multi layered journey to imaginary landscapes, to make a long story short, it was brilliant. Thanks to everybody for that great evening/night, specially Alice, Max, Bertrand, Baptiste and Paul. I hope to have some photos soon.

night people

Night People is one of the best label right now (in my opinion). NP is home of psychedelic, noise, lo-fi, dubby, pop, garage and really fresh music today. Having released tapes and records by a bunch of talented artists such as Wet Hair, Terror Bird, Peaking Lights, Tyvek, Naked on the Vague, Three Legged Race, Robedoor, Daughters of the Sun, Circuit Des Yeux, Sleep Over, Rene Hell, Smycken, etc... All of these beautifully packaged (all the sleeves are screenprinted and designed) by the boss Shawn Reed (Wet Hair, Raccoo-oo-oon...). You can download here a free Night People comp and watch a new song by Wet Hair via Impose magazine.

high wolf / annapurna illusion

High Wolf and his alter ego Annapurna Illusion have just released a split on Group Tightener. High Wolf is very prolific, experimenting a lot under various names, you can't miss him and it is getting better and better. He will play this spring in Europe, so if you can, catch him live.
