En febrero del 07 sale en USA el disco de la banda Alsace-Lorraine, que consiste básicamente en Paul Francke, quien escribe, toca, canta y arregla todo maravillosamente desde su universidad en Virginia (USA). Estuve trabajando con él en este disco, cantando cuatro canciones y haciendo coros en dos más.
Pueden escuchar algo en la página de Darla records, aunque no está masterizado aún. El disco tiene dos remixes hechos por Ian Catt (Saint Etienne) y Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins). Lujo!
ALSACE LORRAINE - Dark One CD (Darla: DRL178: 708527017823) $12.00
EXCLUSIVE. Available 2/12/2007. Alsace Lorraine is the delicately delicious and unique electronic/guitar pop creation of Paul Francke. Dark One features remixes by Ian Catt (St. Etienne) and Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins). We're pleased that our favorite singer on Earth, Argentinean Singer/Artist Isol (Entre Rios) joined Alsace Lorraine to sing on six tracks. Isol sings here in English for the first time! Isol helped brainstorm the construction of lyrics and music too. Caitlin Brice, who sang on the first Alsace Lorraine record, sings backing vocals on two tracks. The sophomore Alsace album Dark One, though not literally very "Dark", was recorded and mixed by Paul at Paul's home studio in Chicago. Isol's warm, exotic, sensual vocals were recorded in Isol's bedroom studio in Buenos Aires. Paul's unique bedroom uber-pop soundtrack provides the perfect music bed to Isol's vocal. The result is a unique blend of Astrud Gilberto, St. Etienne, Eurythmics, Pale Saints, Magnetic Fields, a Latinesque Hope Sandoval, as well as The Wake, and Section 25. Hopefully, Paul and Isol will make more beautiful music together. Alsace Lorraine sounds romantic; thoughtful, sensuous and smart. Work on the album began on the south side of Chicago and was completed in Campbeltown, Kintyre, Scotland. Between those points, Paul worked on the record in an Episcopalian seminary dormitory in Alexandria, Virginia. Another Uniquely beautiful Darla record!
