posted in Music & Movies  at 12.27 PM from Arcadie . Méjannes-lès-Alès (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Piers Faccini Work Songs

worksongs mrcup 02

 

I am a "visual" person so it is always difficult for me to write and I realize today, with the flood of images that pass before our eyes every day, that words should explain these images, make sense ... if you take the time to read, although of course!

 

I wanted to post on two vinyl projects. The first is the new EP by Piers Faccini performs for Record store day. It is exciting to talk to Piers its projects and discuss the creative process. I was lucky to have that 12" in the hands and can listen to these 4 new titles.

 

Here is how Piers describes the project: "This is the third year we've participated and I love doing it as something Each Time Allows me to experiment and try out different ideas and styles from the album That I make. This year's release is inspired by the different traditions of work songs worldwide, the oven songs recreate the call of voices rising in unison to the beat of a hammer gold to the syncopated grinding of grain on the threshing floor. In WORK SONGS rhythm is the hand clap That keeps time to the crash of an axis or the thud of a mortar on a stone pestle. Inspired as much by Southern Voice Mediterranean traditions as Those of African American origins, oven thesis showcase new compositions Faccini's Customary and original music without frontiers.Lastly the artwork for the 12 inch Was Made using original lino cuts That I made. ".

 

You can buy it on his label website, Beating Drums, as Piers said "Music is food and we aim to grow and sell the nutritious kind, so if you like our style and our ethos, remember to supporting us by buying our lovingly made produce! "!

The second project is the new album Lunatic age, a rock band from the town where I come from. We met with the group when I started in graphic design, the cover of their second album was one of my first "real" project. 15 years later, here we are again on a joint project, and I do not think at that time we would have created could imagine their new vinyl together! You can pre-order on the band's website...

End of year is always a good time to take stock ... This is the time to do the musical balance of this year, 2014, just hours before the midnight supper! Here are the albums that came out this year and that affected me. New in 2014, I bought the albums on vinyl!

 

So here these albums without order of preference !

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 02music2014 mrcup makingof 03

Damien Rice. My favourit faded fantasy : beautiful album, he took time to do it, but what a result! The cover is also superb.

Piers Faccini Vincent & Segal. Songs of lost time: the first joint album of these two long-time friends. THE voice of Piers and the cello of Vincent, just magical. Was also a great a concert in a small chapel lost in the Cevennes for me this year...

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 04music2014 mrcup makingof 05

Fink. Hardbeliever : I follow Fink from its first album and this is my favorit album, beautiful evolution in style, a lot of power... The Peligrim title is probably the song of the year for me.

Ben Howard. I forget Where We Were: second album of this prodigy with captivating titles ... with its sublime vinyl edition.

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 06music2014 mrcup makingof 07

U2. Songs of innocence :  beyond the disturbance at the "free" launch of the album, the songs are strong and beautiful ... but I still can understand the choice fof the sleeve, despite all the explanations given by the group!

Coldplay. Ghost stories: like U2, I imagine it must be difficult to creat with such pressure and attention given to your work ... but Codlplay is doing well, with good sound and a quiet and pleasant album ...

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 08music2014 mrcup makingof 09

Ray Lamontagne. Supernova: very good album to new sounds.

The many are one: Compilation of Piers Faccini label that as a friend who will recommend books, a selection of the artists he appreciates and asked them each a title ... personal preference for the title Ben Harper and especially Jasser Haj Youssef !

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 10music2014 mrcup makingof 11

The secret life of Walter Mitty soundtrack: Like the film, the soundtrack makes you want to live life to the fullest! Special mention under "Step outside" José González.

Elbow. The take off and landing the of everything: still unknown in France, another superb album of the English group ...

QLEEK & Gramovox

posted in Objects & shopping | Music & Movies  at 8.16 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Damien Rice

gramovox-mrcup-02

Difficult today to say what the future of the music industry will be. Who predicted that U2 albums issue on LP in the 2000's would sell for between 100 and 150 € on ebay while so much people complains when they offer their latest album for free on itunes !!! I see it with my daughter, who in her 11 years finds happiness discovering music. But the experience of looking for a title in my itunes library have nothing with discovering a song in a movie or a song associated with the cover of a 12". I myself "fall" in collecting vinyl since last year... If I only I could have buy vinyl instead of the thousans CDs I have ! That's why I wanted to present these two innovative projects that challenges the physical medium in the heart of the experience of music.

 

GRAMOVOX

The first GRAMOVOX makes Any use Bluetooth-enabled device to stream nostalgia and experience the vintage, organic sound of a gramophone.
