Available on 12” vinyl LP with full colour reverse board sleeve and printed inner bag or CD, on Blackest Ever Black. To help Blackest Ever Black raise the bar yet again they’ve brought in french avantgard trumpeter Jac Berrocal. Sucking you into his film-noir Dale cooper/Bohren und der Club of Gore musique contréte world. Dark and twistedly romantic, his trumpets swirls into an almost 8-bit like crunching.

10/10 JJ Bale Customer review, 14th June 2015
One of the best albums recorded this year, so far. I agree melodies don't seem to develop, but that's the perfect idea; no boring solos, just the essence. And what sound! The record goes from one mood to another without repeating itself and with a great coherence in sound and quality. It's not a jazz album because it borrows more its form to the punk rock albums with very short tunes. Highly recommended for curious listeners, and for everyone else too -- the music here is very melodic and easy to catch on to.
7/10 Alan Mason Customer review, 9th June 2015
Footsteps in an alley. Mood music if your mood is noir. Notes drip from a horn like latter-day Miles. Guitars scrape. Derricks nod. This is LA appropriated by Godard, a French take on those mean streets with whispers of dialogue giving way to Moondog shuffles and half formed melodies. The only downside? The mood is established but never developed; tracks fizzle out like a stub in a gutter. Make a jazz noise here. A tantalising glimpse of something that never quite materialises. Echoes, smoke and shadows.
