23 settembre 2010


Il cd sarà disponibile solo a inizio novembre - e forse anche una versione in vinile, se ci saranno sufficienti richieste - ma i dodici brani di The Ocean Tango, frutto della collaborazione tra Louis Philippe e gli svedesi Testbild!, si possono già ascoltare e acquistare in http://oceantango.bandcamp.com. Alla presentazione dell'album è dedicata la puntata del prossimo 28 settembre di The Curve Ball, programma di Chris Evans per l'emittente WCR-FM di Wolverhampton (http://wcrfm.com/cmsms).

The Ocean Tango
is the result of a joyful summertime collaboration between French pop craftsman Louis Philippe and Swedish art-pop conceptualists Testbild!. An intoxicating blend of chamber pop and chamber jazz, the album is awash with trumpets, vibraphones, flutes, strings, harpsichord, Fender Rhodes, nylon guitar and the lushest of harmonies - all wrapped around elegantly tooled, constantly surprising melodies. Imagine a late-night session featuring the Beach Boys, Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Taylor and Kenny Wheeler, with a few electronic flourishes from Brian Eno, and maybe even the odd hint of the Canterbury Scene, and you’re getting close to the vibe...
