French new-wave is definitly not dead! Here we don't talk about a music genre but an attitude, a position. From the begining in the 50's with the 'nouvelle vague', the aim is to find new forms beyond avant-garde and pop-culture to express true emotions, to show the diseases of the modern world and to challenge norms and obsolete social orders (like bourgeoisie, religion, work, art...). French new-wave is also a passion for wandering, a general tendency for detachment and it is, of course, the Diy spirit. We can find this kind of nonconformism and this common taste for wasted grounds in some movies of Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette or Luis Bunuel as well as in the music of Polyphonic Size, Guerre Froide and Merci La Nuit. With this 1st release on vinyl, this young musician from Saint-Etienne offers 6 minimal synth-pop songs filled with great sensibility, commitment and a lot of bitter sweet humor. The music is very personal and digs up very different synth music eras, from the 80's raw analog sounds to the digital coldness of samples and techno kicks, to the more lo-fi minimal sounds. All those elements connected together are forming the sound of the nocturnal conspiracy of Merci La Nuit. So let's go for this night ballad through the city streets. It's a bit foggy tonight...

fossils / LP

Froe Char is also known as half of the duo Illustration Sonore who has an amazing LP being released by the fantastic Medical Records label. There have been a pair of previous Froe Char releases of dark beautiful ambiance but with 'Fossils' she takes the distorted haze and murk of her prior work and uses it as a texture amid percolating synths and minimalist rhythms. 'Fossils' (released in a collaborative effort between Spielzeug Muzak & Modern Tapes labels) is the sultry minimal synth record for the experimental crowd or the noisy bleak record for the coldwave kids. I once heard someone say 'you can't dance to pain' but this record really proves otherwise !!

coast

Artist : Alone 

Label : Spielzeug Muzak 

coast / LP

Alone is a project from Belgrade run by Nikola Vitković (also member of Konvoj Bonton Bajkera, Alone in heaven..). Hiding away from public sight, Alone spends his years in his mono utopia, reinventing the alternative history of industrial and melancholic synth-pop. His melody is gentle but dark, his beats are slow but hard, his synthesizer is foggy but sharp. Over last 20 years, he has released 6 albums on N.A.U.K., Treue Um Treue and Cold trinity. This new LP on Spielzeug Muzak delivers a collection of 8 gloomy synthetic lullabyes and scientific love songs from a coast / limit / end of the world, a misty place where all boundaries melt: land, sea and air, inner and outer world, self and non-self. This is the most sleepy and foggiest Alone album thus far, emotionally calm but sonically colourful as ever. It introduces the lead vocals by Igor Petrušić and Draginja Marić mixed with the familiar voice of Nikola. Limited to 300 copies !

Artist : Ame De Boue 

Label : Spielzeug Muzak 

finitudes / LP

4 years after 'L'Inconfort Nécessaire', released on esoteric-tronic label Treue Um Treue, here is the 2nd LP of this one man+machines project driven by Dasz (also involved in Dolina and Illustration Sonore). It's a collaboration between the prolific post-punk label Danger Records & Spielzeug Muzak, propagators of dirty sounds over the years. As expected, this album brings another bunch of tormented urban electronic songs. Still oscillating between aerial cold waves and warm intimist electro darkness, between organic analog (un)purity and bad-fidelity digital fragility, between urgency and detachment.. Again, we are invited to a lame dance on pendulum-like sequences, when city sleeps.. The words used are simple. Sung in different languages, they're describing slices of frustrated lives, post-modern diseases and common anguish, sometimes with a touch of black humour, to underline the absurdity of it all. Finiteness in its various definitions is the link between the songs. But it has nothing to do with our apocalyptic times.. Or has it ?
