New(ish) on Frantic City

frantic-cityFrantic City records recently put out a couple of new releases which you may have missed due to the very busy lifestyle you’ve been leading; not to worry, you are forgiven….now pay attention!

SKEPTICS / PRÊCHEUR LOUP  “Wolf Meeting”split cassette release features 4 tracks from each artist and is available direct from Frantic City  just Click on the cover image to get where you need to be.

The official word:

frantic-043-skeptics-precheur-loup-split-csThis new split cassette starts with four new Skeptics songs recorded at the old garden shack in La Rochelle during the hot summer of 2015. But if these songs were recorded the old school way, just as the first recordings – which you can find on Moody Monkey’s « File under Fuzz Punk » LP – were, they’re far away from the BFTG grunting-Garage style of these early recordings and are more leaning towards a Heavy-Psych sound which was already hinted at with their last album « Open Sea ». Don’t worry though, the Fuzz is still super thick when turned ON

The other side features four of the first recordings done by Prêcheur Loup, from Bordeaux, who’s lately been seen playing guitar in Jaromil Sabor – with whom he recorded a muchpraised 10 track tape out on Frantic City in Spring 2015. He’s just started playing gigs with a line-up made up of all four members of trash Garage/Grunge band Cockpit + him singing and playing guitar, and surely that’s something you don’t want to miss if you dig the old Reatards or LiveFastDie records. All songs were mastered by Lo’Spider for good measure and a download code is hidden inside.

frantic-042-trash-mantra-csTRASH MANTRA – s/t CS When he’s not running around with one of his bands – Dee Diglers (RIP), Love Cans, Los Orioles or Schade, tearing down a wall in his « Fokof » bar / record shop located on the second storey of a big squatted building in Biel’s suburbs, or working on his own « Sacred Hood » record label’s next release, Dany, a French-speaking Swiss guy of Dutch origins, still has some time on his hands to fiddle around with his vintage Casio keyboards. Out of these experimentations dark and haunting melodies emerge, and Dany then adds his own twisted voice on these, singing sometimes in French, sometimes in English. We at Frantic City haven’t recovered from the first shock yet and eventually chose these four songs for the first Trash Mantra release. Four tracks that almost sound like Suicide demos – and an Alan Vega trying to sing in French. Oui monsieur.
