ZERO 7 – THE GARDEN (Electronica/LoFi – UK)

Many will still remember this band’s first album, Simple Things, which marked the year 2001 with its airy melodies and stunning vocals. Back then, Zero 7 was often compared to Air due to their laid back retro sound, which reminded the listener of Air’s Premiers symptômes.

Zero 7 - Futures     

Originating from the UK, the group’s core is Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker. Over the years, a wide array of talented artists have contributed vocals to Binns and Hardaker’s compositions: Mozez, Sia Furler, Tina Dico, Sophie Barker, and José González to name a few.

ENCRE – FLUX (Experimental – France)

Encre

Encre is a project spearheaded by French composer / performer Yann Tambour. His entrancing pieces are built around guitar, sampled instruments and loops but feel strangely organic. Mainly instrumental, these tightly knit collages are dark pieces that conjure up melodies by great masters such as Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, Leonard Cohen or Nick Drake.

Encre - Flux     

Flux is the second album by Encre and it includes eight atypical orchestral compositions that are the result of a careful and meticulous creative process. Immersed in this well orchestrated chaos, you might lose track of time and find yourself transported to lands you had never seen before.
