We are very sad to announce that our dear friend Ghédalia Tazartès passed away on Feb 9th, 2021.
It has been such a pleasure working with him since 2014.
Unfortunately he won’t see the two new releases we were working on with him recently.
We will remember his smile, his friendship and his great music.
More on Ghédalia here
Goodbye Steve, it has been a pleasure working with you.

Red ouvre Felkmoon par la boucle du dernier morceau de Felk, son 1er album sorti en 2000, avec la voix de Margot Lambin à 3 ans et 20 ans. Accueillant l’imprévu des sons familiers et les bruits du dehors, ce nouvel album a également été enregistré à la maison, portes et fenêtres ouvertes.
Dans son univers tendre et intimiste il invite Bertrand Belin (violon, voix et basse) le temps d’un duo chaud et vibrant, convoque l’esprit de Gil Scott-Heron à travers sa version de « We Almost Lost Detroit », convie son complice Philippe Tessier (saxophone ténor) qui apporte une touche free au blues folk électronique de Red sur « I’m Weird ».
Felk Moon is :
a vinyl record with 500 unique covers, each drawn by Red
(including two limited editions of 100: Golden Serie and « Sanguine » Serie)
Some « XMAS SPECIAL » covers are already available !
There is less than 20 copies of the Golden Serie still available.
The « SANGUINES » Serie will be available soon.
Copies will be available on this website next week
Red opens Felk Moon by the loop of the last track of Felk, his first album released in 2000, with the voice of Margot Lambin at 3 and 20 years old. Welcoming the unexpected of familiar sounds and outdoor sounds, this new album was also recorded at home, doors and windows open.
In his tender and intimate world he invites Bertrand Belin (violin, voice and bass) for a warm and vibrant duo, summons the spirit of Gil Scott-Heron through his version of « We Almost Lost Detroit », invites his accomplice Philippe Tessier (tenor saxophone) who brings a free touch to Red’s electronic folk blues on « I’m Weird ».
Each cover is unique, hand drawn by the artist himself.

Style: country, pop, folk, jazz
BISOU asked Eugene Chadbourne to do an album for children and he proposed an album about horror movies and monsters. Some references are obvious like ‘The Thing’, ‘Blacky Lagoony’, etc, and some are about strange characters ‘Vampire Tiger Girl’, and some are covers (Sam and the Shams, Shockabilly).
It’s probably the best recorded album of Eugene Chadbourne. Eugene met Steve Beresford and Alex Ward in London at Eastcote Studios (where Adele, Duran Duran, Aswad, Tindersticks and Depeche Mode recorded !). They used a good part of the instruments available there (grand piano, wood organ, many amps, loads of keyboards).
LP 12” – BIS-006-U / Release date: January 25, 2018
Style: Experimental, Electronic, Drone, Collage.

On the other side, the master of drone Colin Potter (Nurse With Wound, Monos) and french free sax player Quentin Rollet (guest with The Red Krayola, Nurse With Wound, Mendelson, David Grubbs, DRAME …) present a long suite called The Closer You Are To The Center, The Further You Are From The Edge their first collaboration ever, recorded in London in 2012, with special guest Isabelle Magnon on piano.
