CARTE BLANCHE serie (LCLCB) : artists we like, that produce songs out of our usual musical line (dub and assimilated)

" Den Andra (that means "The second" in swedish) marks then end of a musical work that lasted more than 4 years.
Some of the album tracks are old tunes taht we finaly decided to record like “Mummy”, some others are quite recent like “Sweet as a cat”.
As the recording process takes a lots of time, it reflects in the songs, like a travel thru our different musical eras, influences, and instant wishes. Thru our life changes also.
We all agreed to put a little more electronic sounds, work the depth of the songs, to achiveve with this album a listening artefact, pleasant and strong.
We didn't agree all the time on the arrangements, the tracklisting and the cover (aaaaah, the cover...). Wild endless debats, hard to find majority, especially when you're four !"
Delgarma - september 2010

" Den Andra is more than an album title : it's september 2010 nice surprise ! A mystical inspired and an enchanting music served by a unique voice.
We were looking foward to listen it since... april 2007, so 3 years were needed to give birth to Delgarma's second album.
All in all, that's not this much time for an english/swedish/french folk artefact of this kind..."

New release on LCL netlabel : "LCLCB03 - Moolen - Art Of Heartwork" (post rock, folk, electronica)

LCL netlabel drives out of its usual "Dub and familiar" musical line to deliver a new "Carte Blanche" (the third of this serie). This Coup de Coeur is for a german musician called Moolen.

Let's visit with him post rock and electronica landscapes that seem at the same time odd and familiar. The master of both multiple instruments and sound production by this artist allows him to deliver an ambitious yet intimist mini LP, briding with success ambient fields with saturated episodes...

Use the above player to browse the tracks, and click here or on the cover to go to the download Page !


LCL sort de son habituelle ligne musicale "Dub et dérivés" pour vous présenter une nouvelle "Carte Blanche" (la troisième de la série). Ce coup de coeur est destiné à un musicien allemand nommé Moolen.

Visitez avec lui des paysages post-rock et electronica qui paraissent à la fois étranges et familiers. La maitrise à la fois de multiples instruments et de la production sonore par cet artiste lui permet de vous offrir une mini album ambitieux mais néanmoins intimiste, mariant avec succès plages ambient et épisodes distordus.
