Croque Macadam Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.
Pretty slick indie-punk action here from Entracte Twist, an up-and-coming band from France. Christine Young has a low-slung 80’s kind of swagger to it, stylish and rude. This is the first ever vinyl release from the charmingly-named Croque Macadam label; a 7” single limited to 350 copies.

The Kumari are an English garage-rock group, doing that garage-rock thing with side-lashings of psych (the 1960s kind) and folk-rock. Walking, their freshest single, is backed with the exclusive track ‘Bea’, in a 7” package limited to a mere 350 copies. The single is released by Croque Macadam.
Here are two ‘60s inspired psychedelic, garage rock numbers from Os Noctambulos with Outsider. Expect some fuzzy organ along with some woozy guitar and some vocals which sound as if they’ve been lifted from a 13th Floor Elevators track. Both of the tracks on Outsider were made in one raw afternoon in Toulouse and will only feature on this 7”.
7” vinyl. Limited to 350 copies.
Triptides drop 7 inches of sunshine indie pop from California via unctuous-sounding French label Croque Macadam. They very-much continue their run of superior 60s inflected chime-and-jangle pop here. Clementine comes on like an early Cleaners From Venus number polished up a little. Holding On flirts with some Byrds-ian lead guitar and has charming C86 vocals. Horribly limited to 250 copies.
