hinah035 - Mocke "Faces béates"hinah035 - Mocke

"Faces béates"

Mocke is a busy man indeed. On top of being a very active guitarist in several French bands (Midget!, Arlt, Chevalrex...), he has released in recent years three beautiful instrumental albums on the label Objet Disque. As big fans of these LPs, we have asked him if, by any chance, he happened to sit on any hidden gems that did not make it to the albums... Bingo! Mocke dug out five superb unreleased instrumentals for us. They take us through various atmospheres (pop, jazz, latin, rock, folk...), in a mix of styles that Mocke handles so well.

"Rambo Rantanplan"

Melmac and the Reverter brothers are old friends of hinah's, as the label released one of the band's first recordings: hinah003 - P1 vs P2. Back then, the lineup only included Luc and Nicolas and they played minimalist electronic music. Nearly 16 years later, Melmac has grown into a quartet, with Jean-Yves Davillers (drums) and Quentin Rollet (saxophone) recently joining. The sound has also changed a lot, combining noisy guitars, experimental sounds and free jazz.

hinah033 - Jan Mörgenson "Live @ Maison Salvan"hinah033 - Jan Mörgenson

"Live @ Maison Salvan"

It is with "Mehmet II", a track on his last album, that we discovered Jan Mörgenson - from Metz, France, but originally from Denmark. While undeniably influenced by John Fahey and Jack Rose, this track also shows a true personality which is also noticeable throughout the album, "Jass, Raag & Blooz", released early 2016 on Specific: a trip through America and its "Primitive Guitar" but also slow rides in wide open Asian arid spaces and a couple of high-altitude excursions in unexplored, hostile territory.
For this release, we have asked Jan for a live recording of his songs. So here is one of his latest sets, recorded live in the South of France, at Maison Salvan in Labège, where you can rediscover most of his last album.

hinah032 - Empty House Cooperative "Seven"hinah032 - Empty House Cooperative

"Seven"

Empty House Cooperative "Seven" is a document of one of the core trio's many gatherings. The titles are a play on words, mixing imagistic language to rhyme with the numbers, with "Seven" being both, as the number 7 is my secret soothing obsessive-compulsive fixation number.
We've developed our unspoken "just do it and enjoy it" musical language over the 20 years since we began as Sunday jam sessions in 1996.
I had a vision to invite musicians that I trusted or had a good vibe about to explore improvisation with minimal guidelines in a loose collective with an ebb and flow of both sound and membership. Approximately 30 people have been involved over the years. Regulars have included musicians Craig Colorusso and Thalia Zedek, some old friends from the band Molasses & others of their Montreal scene, and social justice activist Brian Corr, whom I met in Jumbo, a Boston rock scene circus music band.
From EHC's inception, the heavy foundation and floral scrabbles of Jonah Sacks' cello, the structure and deconstruction of Chris Brokaw's guitar, and DMC's viola, loops, howling & singing feedback, electro-acoustic noise & obsession with effects pedals have been the heart of Empty House Cooperative.
Thanks to hinah for their support at the beginning and now these many years later. All along the way, EHC concerts and home sessions have been recorded & passed out to friends in brown paper lunch bags.
The full archive will someday see the light of day.

hinah031 - Julie Fossaert "R&A"hinah031 - Julie Fossaert

"R&A"

You may have already come across Lille-based Julie Fossaert as part of the peppy band Peru Peru, or heard her much more intimate solo project named Rêve ("Dream"). On "R&A", she appears stripped down although, paradoxically, she is joined by many guests (Eric Chenaux, Valérie Leclercq, Claire Vailler, McCloud Zicmuse, Myriam Pruvot... and many more) on songs that were recorded in many different places (Lille, Nantes, Dunkirk, Paris, Nancy and Villeurbanne). Each track has its own atmosphere, its own tone colour, its own connection with Julie's world -- from the slender "Hotaru Kana" to the more cheerful "Keep On Doing What You Do / Jerks on the Loose".

hinahgift013 - Tribute To The Anthology Of American Folk Music By Harry Smith "Anamude, Matt Bauer, Dave DeCastro, Donna, Everything is Fine, Grumpy Bear, H-Burns, Half Asleep, Kenyon, Marc Manning, Guillaume Maupin, oRSo, Perio, Pollyanna, Charlie Parr, Sandusky, Shelley Short, The Tami Show"hinahgift013 - Tribute To The Anthology Of American Folk Music By Harry Smith

"Anamude, Matt Bauer, Dave DeCastro, Donna, Everything is Fine, Grumpy Bear, H-Burns, Half Asleep, Kenyon, Marc Manning, Guillaume Maupin, oRSo, Perio, Pollyanna, Charlie Parr, Sandusky, Shelley Short, The Tami Show"

In 1952, Harry Smith - an artist, a mad collector, and much more - compiled for Folkways Records 84 songs recorded between 1927 and 1932. This three-volume anthology, genuine memory of the American popular music, influenced the folk songwriters of the '60s to a great extent, Bob Dylan leading the way, and it still haunts today's artists (Will Oldham, 16 Horsepower, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Kristin Hersh...). A fourth volume, containing 28 more songs recorded from 1928 to 1940, came out a few years ago on Revenant Records and brought the anthology back to the fore. As we are big fans of this collection, we've asked some of our favourite bands to pay a tribute to the anthology. The covers will be available on this page as we receive them!
