It pleases me no end to introduce this genuinely brilliant compilation to you courtesy of new French label ERR REC. It’s an evocative, funky, charming and hugely satisfying listen that takes in various moods and genres all lovingly produced on vintage gear by 9 musicians from the French indie scene under different pseudonyms. It’s my guess that only hardcore Francophiles are likely to be aware of (m)any of them but regardless of that if you’re a fan of synths, soundtracks & library music this could well be up there with your albums of the year.
Alas, for now, this LP is limited to the ludicrously low amount of 50 copies so we won’t have any of them for very long. Also the price of this edition is reflected in the risograph machine-printed sleeve, making it very collectable. Listen and love…
