IZZY Lindqwister - Les Gens Sont Fous, Les Temps Sont Flous (by Izzy Lindqwister)

Izzy Lindqwister’s smashing ska inspired cover of legendary French singer Jacques Dutronc song ‘Les Gens Sont Fous, Les Temps Sont Flous’. Taken from Izzy Lindqwister EP ‘Pyjama Party’ out on Smoky Carrot Records.

Enjoy and share!

The best Indie anthem of the year by @Jerseybudd is available for your pleasure, give it a go and share!

'Fool To Fool' the second of a double A sided single '1 Million Keys'. It is a wide spaced spaghetti western of a showdown and a clin d'oeil to Ennio Morricone.

Izzy Lindqwister is a singer and songwriter from Stockholm, Sweden, now based in Paris, known for her strong soul power voice and her strong image.

Some years later she moved to Paris, and founded the band Rodeo Massacre and lately has started her own solo project whilst collaborating with acts such as Cornershop, Mustang, SSG and Towerbrown. Live her deep, soulful and powerful vox is knock-out, and very unique.

On 30th July 2012, Ample Play Records release Izzy Lindqwister’s debut Double A Sided Single which includes:

'1 Million Keys' the mood of a Swiss mountain vacation gave her this lighter, memorable postcard of a song.

1 Million Keys, a playlist by Izzy Lindqwister

Izzy Lindqwister is a singer and songwriter from Stockholm, Sweden, now based in Paris, known for her strong soul power voice and her strong image.
 
She started singing in church choirs from a young age, and as a teenager she discovered blues, soul & rock’n’roll through Stevie Klasson, Johnny Thunders’ guitarist, of whom she says “He would sometimes invite me to guest at one of his shows in small Stockholm jazz venues.  Being too young to get into those sort of places I had to wait in the car and sneak in via the sidedoor just to sing a song or two.”
 
Some years later she moved to Paris, and founded Rodeo Massacre and lately has started her own solo project whilst collaborating with acts such as Cornershop, Mustang, SSG and Towerbrown.  Live her deep, soulful and powerful vox is knock-out, and very unique.
 
On 30th July, Ample Play Records will release Izzy Lindqwister’s debut Double A Sided Single which includes:

The new and excellent EP from The Parisians is now available worldwide! Enjoy it!

"The Parisians Were Here", the brand new EP from The Parisians is now available worldwide.

We are delighted to announce the release of The Parisians' latest EP, The Parisians Were Here. It includes 4 exclusive tracks, taking in the band’s main influences such as 70’s New York punk and The Stooges amongst others, up to more recent references such as The Libertines. The sound and the rage are still the same, but the themes and melodies have definitely evolved, as their previous EP, Difficult Times, already testified. Founder and precursor band of the Parisian rock scene born in 2004 (the Baby Rockers), The Parisians are one of these bands in France, that managed to create a concrete musical energy, while keeping a proper original sound and signature of their own. With this EP, the band offers here its own musical legacy, by recording the song Forever Is Over, the very first demo written when it all started.

We are delighted to release the debut EP, Post Tempus, from Berlin’s finest lo-fi garage duo, Delta Love. With only one guitar and a drummer (who also provides vocals,) the surf-guitar, howls and overall sound emanating from these two unassumingly-clad lads feel surprisingly unlacking. When asked about Delta Love’s influences, guitarist Carl somewhat unexpectedly sited Deerhunter, a little less surprisingly Black Lips, and, reassuringly, when pressed for more old school ’60s Garage inspirations, The Sonics. The noisy, good-time bratty jaunts of Ty Segall, earlyish The Horrors and riffs of The Cramps might also come to mind…

Their superb debut EP Post Tempus has been recorded on an old 8 track tape recorder, produced and mastered by the band themselves. Worldwide release via digital download and K7 tapes on the 14th of May 2012.

LIL DAGGERS was originally conceived as a home recording project involving close friends in the summer of 2008. After only a few short years, this Miami, FL 5-piece has built itself in to a strong collective with a knack for pumping out psych-rock jams that are equal parts powerful, succinct and sprawling. Being based in a place where sun, sand and tourists are the norm, Lil Daggers offers a distinctly alternative view of the city in which they live and love, Miami. This 5 piece delivers stunning psych-rock jams: "they play deceptively simple beats and echoed fenders which bristle under the skin like a hand up a skirt, under the table of a roadhouse diner. This is also full of the sort of songs that brood and creak the floorboards in desolated motel rooms. The best sort." Artrocker. Drawing from their mutual love for early Rock & Roll, Doo-Wop, R&B, Soul, and Punk Rock music, Lil Daggers’ Stray Chank single is a stunning combination of their influences and the vibes of bands such as Strange Boys, Black Lips and White Denim. Taking a trip through their widely acclaimed debut album’s 11 tracks released in 2011 on Miami based Limited Fanfare Records, you’ll encouter reverb-drenched vocals, classic fuzz tones, sweeping organ and sonic landscapes that make the album much more than your typical garage band knocking out 2 minute songs.
