Manu Louis “Club Copy”

Artist: Manus Louis
Title: Club Copy
Format: LP, CD, Digital

Label: Igloo Records
Distribution: Broken Silence (GAS), Socadisc (France)

Genre: Experimental Pop
Release Date: 29/09/2023

Club Copy brings us a futuristic world dominated by standardisation, in which, your place on earth no longer matters. In Paris, Bangkok or Hanoi everything is the same. Visitors are doomed to find the same street, the same shops, playing the same music, frequented by people wearing the same clothes, made in the same places… 

However in one of these towns, a small oasis of resistance is emerging in spite of itself.

Club Copy, a small, outdated photocopying centre has been converted into an alternative venue.

Here, each photocopy generates new variations. Because of the obsolescence of the equipment and the technical incompetence of its managers, it is impossible to make a photocopy without deviating from the original. 

Initially on the verge of bankruptcy, the shop soon becomes a new place of resistance for the freaks….

Built on the ashes of Manu Louis‘ latest release (Front de Cadeaux’s remix of Internet), Club Copy bounces again to the sexy BPM of the slowed-down clubs. 

Manu is joined by an impressive cast of collaborators: Spanish singer from Las Victimas Civiles, Héctor Arnau; Brussels experimental jazz vocalist, Lynn Cassiers; and performer Vicente Arlandis offer their voices. Mastering by the cult Rashad Becker sculpts the bass and widens the space, and Spanish artist Escif’s hijacked covers plunge us into the heart of the beauty of the photocopy shop. Club Copy is undoubtedly the Berlin singer/producer’s most accomplished, touching and disturbing work to date.

CRABE “Visite Du Temple Inné “

Artist: CRABE
Title: Visite Du Temple Inné
Format: LP, CD, Digital
Label: Les Disques Dure Vie
Distribution: Cargo
Genre: Art/ Noise- Punk
Release Date: 13/10/2023

CRABE’s (Montreal, QC) special brand of “présent-punk” blends complex structures and surreal melodies. Comprised of Mertin Hoëk (Télégraphe Jungle, IDALG, Jesuslesfilles, Leamers, etc.) and Gabriel Lapierre (Après l’Asphalte, Varger, etc.), the odd duo is known for the chaos that ensues during their live performances as well as their abandon on stage, making them a must-see artist in the Quebecexperimental music scene for over a decade.

After 15 years of scouting the mist of a still unexplored way to make music, CRABE clad itself in a multi-colored mantle made of art-punk, controlled chaos, and sonic surrealism. From their experimentations came a word that sums up their universe with accuracy and simplicity: Crabism.

Crabism is a visit within the inner temple of CRABE, a ride through a storm of ideas that build the strangest, most terrifying and attractive musical beast of Quebec’s musical spectrum.

After the release of Sentients in 2021, the whimsical duo is set to re-map a territory that only CRABE knows how to occupy as it does.

With the advent of the year 2023, CRABE draws from the depths of their being to release an new album September 29th, Visite Du Temple Inné. A series of reflections pushes the group to question the concept of rock ensembles. Embarrassed by pastiches, guitars, percussion and drums, the group tries to bring something fresh and dynamic to this porridge of ghosts from the past. On Visite Du Temple Inné, it is with great honors of sharing and vulnerability that the music is created.
