”What can we say about this band?

Chat Noir - 4 albums



Artist:  Chat Noir
Albums:  Adoration / Decoupage / Difficult To See You / Weather Forecasting Stone

Quality: mp3 CBR 192 / 320

A trio that starts from classic jazz to explore alternative music territories and sounds contaminated by different kind of musical genres. A trio which abolishes the traditional concept of leader and sideman, encouraging the acting of each member in a balanced way. A trio which, through its compositions, has the courage to express itself by a very personal language. The result is a choral and evocative music which distinguishes Chat Noir from the most jazz bands of our time.©

Various Artists (2009) -Femmes De Paris & Gentlemen De Paris (4CD set)


 

Artist:  various
Albums: Femmes De Paris & Gentlemen De Paris (4CD set)
Released:  2009
Quality: mp3 CBR 192
Size: 199 + 106 MB

”A treasure trove of female French pop from the 60s – packaged in a special case with a bonus male disc too! The 4CD package is a tremendous introduction to the hippest French pop sounds of the 60s – and goes way past the obvious stars of the time to include some cool girl singers who never got full exposure here on this side of the Atlantic. Some of the tracks on the set are versions of English-language hits, and others are original French numbers with a really hip, mod, go-go approach – very romping and groovy, with the sort of styles that are becoming the best-remembered from the time. The overall sound here is similar to some of France Gall's best work from the mid 60s – touched with traces of some of the Brit girl singers, but handled with some great instrumental touches that really make the tunes come alive. 4CD package features all 3 volumes of the Femmes De Paris series, plus a bonus disc of the Gentlemen De Paris set.”

The Peoples Temple (2012) -More For The Masses / Looter's Game



Artist:  The Peoples Temple
Albums: More For The Massses / Looter’s Game
Release date:  2012
Quality: mp3 VBR ~260
Size:  83+11 MB

”The People's Temple don't sound so much like a garage-rock band circa 2011 as they do a garage-rock band circa 1966. They aren't just vaguely reminiscent of Love or the Seeds or Out of Our Heads-era Stones, they're practically the spitting image, scuzzy and scrappy and, most of all, urgent. Though the sounds they mine may be familiar, they hit on the same quality that makes Nuggets-era rock'n'roll so exciting: that leave-it-on-the-line feeling that these guys are putting a summer's worth of lawnmowing money at risk to lay this racket dow. ©
