Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre
Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre

A nice little project this: Dean Wareham, the voice of Galaxie 500, joins Cheval Sombre to record a selection of ten covers, all themed around Westerns. The material ranges from traditional numbers through Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, all the way up to ...view item »


Cheval Sombre
Had Enough Blues / Hitch A Ride

Hailing all the way from a record studio in Tennessee called Fat Elvis Records (brilliant name: funny, clever and sadly clouded in an element of truth), Cheval Sombre is releasing a short EP called Had Enough Blues / Hitch A Ride. The lyrics in both songs are a psychedelic folk scream at everything that has, so far...view item »

Cheval Sombre
Madder Love EP

Cheval Sombre goes from mad on 'Mad Love', his psych rock record from two years back, to madder on 'Madder Love', an EP of totally different but hopefully recognisable remixes from that record. The song lifted is "Couldn't Do", the sustained folk ballad central to 'Mad Love'; it gets three reworks, courtesy of Justin Robertson, The Time And Spac...view item »


Cheval Sombre
It's Not Time

Cheval Sombre, or "Serious Horse" as they call him in France, has a new 7" out and we've managed to score a few copies of the super-rare black vinyl edition! On the A side there's a new song called 'It's Not Time' which is a slight and heartbroken number performed in intimate near-silence. There's a plaintively picked guitar, an even sadder banj...view item »

Cheval Sombre/ Spectrum
Split

We forgot to put these new Great Pop Supplement 7"s down for pre-order - probably my fault - so if you've bought them elsewhere and already know all about them you can ignore these words. I couldn't review the Damon & Naomi one because Damon's demented boffin hair totally freaked me out & he actually looks just like a corpse re-animated ...view item »

Trensmat Records : Every Noise Has A Note

Trensmat has released some excellent records over the years. The only drawback is that you can't get any of 'em as they were mainly super limited lathe cuts which came and went quicker than Alan Wells (anyone remember him?? boy he was fast!). Anyway now you can wipe those tears away from your faces and be happy that Trensmat have compiled some of t...view item »

This is only the third single from this New York artist who seems to be gathering a huge ...view item »

Cheval Sombre

Chavel Sombre started life as a one-man outfit with a focus on tripped out, shoe-gazing, slow folk. This 's/t' record is the first official long player release and sees Chavel teamed up with song-writer/producer and all-round good dude, Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3, E.A.R and the awesome Spectrum. It appears to be some kind of partnership with Sonic Bo...view item »

Cheval Sombre (featuring Sonic Boom)
It's A Shame/ Little Bit Of Heaven

Not content with challenging our ear drums once this week Static Caravan address the balance and sooth us by unleashing an ultra limited lathe cut from Cheval Sombre featuring Sonic Boom. 'It's a Shame' is a slow opiated sounding spaced out tune that gradually seeps its way into your subconscious. It's a hazey, phazing reverb soaked gentle number a...view item »
