Axe were a British psych band led by acid-rock guitar player Tony Barford and graced by Vivienne Jones' ethereal vocals. In 1970, they recorded a demo album and this is the first ever straight reissue of this artifact, as the previous "reissue" on the Kissing Spell label was altered without the band's consent. Heavy psych and acid-rock sounds full of raw, fuzzed-out guitars and dreamy female vocals. Four original songs plus a long cover of Love's "A house is not a motel". Carefully remastered from an original copy (master tapes were lost). Includes a CD with the same album plus a bonus 8 minute video track featuring colour silent footage of Crystalline/Axe playing live in 1970 with audio from the acetate added.

This fine work, in the perfect Classical tradition, is from late in Piccinni’s French period. It was composed in 1783 and was performed in Paris regularly until 1836 and throughout the rest of Europe until about 1830. Piccinni keeps the plot moving at a fine clip, running one number into the next without a glitch and (especially in the third act) effectively using the chorus to add to the excitement. His writing for the solo voices is stirring in a Gluckian way, but elements of his Italian roots show up in the vocal line and melodic inspiration as well.

This is not so much a jazz album as it is an intimate pairing of like-minded musicians performing as they might do for a few friends in their living room. Heather Keizur is a new name to me but she demonstrates skill and frankly, a lot of caring in the nine selections heard here. Interestingly, four of them are in French and she handles the language with ease, and often with passion. I was especially enamored with her version of the Jacques Brel tune “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” also known as “If You Go Away.”

Describing the recording sessions, Marianne Crebassa says: “Sometimes we worked in a kind of trance … there were some moments when nothing seemed to exist around us …”

Genre: Post-Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Prophecy Productions

Dark dreamweavers Les Discrets return with "Predateurs", their first full-length album in five years. Ever-evolving, the sound of Les Discrets in 2017 takes a stylistic shift which sees the band's dreamy shoegaze and metallic tinged post-rock turn into dark indie rock with electronic chill while incorporating inspiration from trip-hop and 70's film soundtracks. Described as 'the soundtrack of a slow film noir happening in a train where the journey leads the auditor to several places seen from the windows', "Prédateurs" is a cinematographic, urban album made of steel, concrete, snow and electricity. Easy on the ears, "Prédateurs" accessibility is shaped by interpreting the familiar music and melodies of Les Discrets with new instruments, approach and ambition…

Georges Brassens was a French singer-songwriter and poet. He wrote and sang, with his guitar, more than a hundred of his poems, as well as texts from many others such as Victor Hugo, Paul Verlaine, or Louis Aragon. In 1967, he received the Grand Prix de Poésie of the Académie française. Between 1952 and 1976, he recorded fourteen albums that include several popular French songs such as Les copains d'abord, Chanson pour l'Auvergnat, La mauvaise réputation, and Mourir pour des idées. Most of his texts are black humour-tinged and often anarchist-minded.

Angela Gheorghiu stars as Marguerite alongside a divine cast of operatic superstars, including Roberto Alagna, Bryn Terfel, Simon Keenlyside and Sophie Koch, in David McVicar's spectacular 2004 production of Gounod's best known opera, Faust, for the Royal Opera House in London. This production was the Royal Opera Company's first performance of Gounod's Faust in 18 years. Gounod's Faust is the story of a scholar who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for unlimited knowledge and worldly indulgences. McVicar's innovative production sets this story around the time of the Franco-Prussian War (1870) in the gothic, seamy underbelly of Paris. He characterizes Faust, performed by Roberto Alagna, as a man both torn between the theater and religion, and grappling with his own sexuality.
