LAUREL HALO
Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK, Jamaica and Germany – Laurel Halo’s music is a shapeshifting mess, moody and ecstatic, with flashes of rhythmic brilliance mediated by modal simplicity.  The Michigan-born and Berlin-based artist has released both instrumental and vocal-driven records on the London-based label Hyperdub, and has performed in a variety of clubs, concert halls and strange spaces worldwide.

NEVRASKA
French bass/drumming duo formed in late 2013 in Annecy Haute-Savoie, Nevraska brings new sounds from 2 « exes » from hardcore, noise and rock genres. Pascal a former member of Human Side and Cyril, a former member of Inner Suffering.
After 15 years of touring, concerts, albums, partnerships and / or co-productions, each took time to explore new avenues, to play with them, to throw them away and sometimes to re-test them.
Their respective explorations quickly resulted in a common project, a blend of progressive rock, math rock, post rock, noise rock, indie, or even bluespunk! The style is almost reminiscent of groups such as « Nomeansno » or « Breach » but the small format of the group gives a completely different style.

CHARLIE O
French organist Charlie O. is most known for its virtuosity on the B3 Hammond organ, with multiple collaborations from David Grubs, Noel Akchoté & Rectangle record label, Black Sifichi, to Cedric Klapisch, Mendelson or the singers Philippe Katerine and Peter von Poehl, and with his own trio : two drummers, and a B3.
Now with the record « Marguerite » he goes back to his first love : the pipe organ. With tones from Jacques Tati or François de Roubaix soundtracks, 14 sketches blending popular musics. « The whole thing is just so playful and joyous – amazing that you manage to do this with an instrument that weighs I don’t know how many tons with just as many tons of cultural heritage attached! It also sounds great! (Peter von Poehl)

SONS OF HUNS
The Portland trio rounded out by Ryan Northrop [drums] and Aaron
Powell [bass, vocals] retreated to Sound of Sirens Studio in Los
Angeles with producer Toshi Kasai [The Melvins] for a week in January 2015. During that time, the group honed its robust rock sound with the right flourishes of spacey elegance and artful bombast.
Puffing out smoke of Sabbath-ian proportions.

HEAD OF WANTASTIQUET
HEAD OF WANTASTIQUET (USA/DE) is Paul LaBrecque’s (Sunburned Hand of the Man, Astral Blessing) solo shaman body melt unit.
The music is a thoroughly Modern/NOW take on the early minimalist
experiments of John Cale’s Sun Blindness tapes, projected through a prism that refracts into hallucinatory images of Andrew Wyeth and Caspar Friedrich, the temporal finality of Altamont and Kenneth Anger, the bare feet grounded to the soil of Träd Gräs och Stenar, and the beautiful desolation of Doc Boggs’ early 20th century Appalachian hollers

HAILEY TUCK
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, with a Baptist Military Boarding School education, 23 year-old Hailey Tuck is a jazz singer from the most unlikely of backgrounds. On her 18th birthday, her parents presented Hailey with a college fund to further her education and she did what any teenager with a love of 30s jazz, vintage dresses and Edith Piaf would do: She bought a one-way ticket to Paris and boarded the plane.
Arriving in Paris in the early hours of the morning, Hailey took a taxi across town to Voltaire, an area of town in the lively 11th arrondissement. During the course of the journey, a lengthy chat (in English) with the driver led to him setting Hailey a challenge; sing the whole of Edith Piaf’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ in French and the cab is free.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in setting up a date for any of the bands/artists.

Regards.

Alain
