Now Shipping: Areski / Brigitte Fontaine and ZNR May 15 2015
Shipping this week, two mid-'70s French albums that couldn't be more different, yet equally divine.
Originally released in 1973, Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme is the first record billed under both Areski and Brigitte Fontaine. Mercurial and remarkably intimate – as if listeners are beckoned into their strange and beautiful world.
ZNR's 1976 debut, Barricade 3, is an anti-pop masterpiece with Erik Satie-esque compositions, gorgeous electronics and genuinely bizarre vocals. Original gatefold design includes illustration by Don Van Vliet.
