Time passes and plays with our memory. If we think about the more recent releases from the Italian group FITNESS FOREVER &ndash; super danceable albums like &ldquo;Cosmos&rdquo; and &ldquo;Tonight&rdquo;, marvelous hits like &ldquo;Canadian Ranger&rdquo;, &ldquo;Tonight&rdquo; and &ldquo;Lui&rdquo; &ndash; and suddenly we start to sift through the memories, we are suddenly hit with the freshness and immediacy of that debut called &ldquo;Personal Train&rdquo; that won us over so completely back in 2009, with its fresh, sunny, Mediterranean airs, far from the nocturnal, urban spirit of some of their more recent songs.</p><p><br />That&rsquo;s why, among other reasons, we wanted to bring back such an incredible album as a part of our collection of reissues in honor of Elefant Records&rsquo; 25th anniversary. To be able to enjoy again the perfect pop bull&rsquo;s eyes that &ldquo;Probabilmente&rdquo;, &ldquo;Bacharach&rdquo; and &ldquo;L&rsquo;anarchica Pugliese&rdquo; are, because &ldquo;Vacanze A Settembre&rdquo; breathes Italy with a vitality that raises even the lowest spirits, because &ldquo;Je Je Jeox&rdquo; and &ldquo;Quando Ho Tempo&rdquo; make clear all the marvelous lounge music albums <strong>Carlos Valderrama</strong>&rsquo;s crew could have made, because &ldquo;Se Come Te&rdquo; gave us a peak at what path the group was going to take (ah, how clearly we can see things with hindsight), and for a million reasons more, many of which are tied to scenes of your lives that these songs are part of the soundtrack of. We can think of so many.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>What&rsquo;s more, this is the perfect opportunity to recover the two songs that were included in the now out of print &ldquo;Mondo Fitness EP&rdquo;. Both the title track and the &ldquo;Diego Mon Amour&rdquo; are further proof of the group&rsquo;s nose for pop music, on the one hand, and, on the other, the melodic richness and elegance of the arrangements that FITNESS FOREVER are capable of laying out, which have undoubtedly been an important nuance in the concept of disco music that they developed on subsequent albums.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>So, we&rsquo;ve got an album plus two extra tracks, released on a precious transparent red vinyl, in a 300-copy numbered, limited edition. What a delight.<br />&nbsp;</p> GIORGIO TUMA “My Vocalese Fun Fair (25th Elefant Anniversary Reissue)” https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/1004/GIORGIO TUMA “My Vocalese Fun Fair (25th Elefant Anniversary Reissue)” <p>We are really enjoying this process of looking back and recovering some of the albums that we have released at Elefant during our first 25 years as an independent label. <strong>Giorgio Tuma</strong> has been one of those artists that we have handled with special care. His music, so far from the stereotypes of the latest music trends, hides a true genius who is inspired, evocative, and has a psychedelic, melancholic, elegant pop spirit. A musical goldsmith.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>That&rsquo;s why we are so happy to be able to re-release, for the first time on vinyl, his first album with Elefant (second in his discography), &ldquo;My Vocalese Fun Fair&rdquo;. It is a delicious album, exquisitely arranged, where the psychedelia, the lounge music and the Brazilian samba all join hands to make up a banquet of an album. It&rsquo;s because of all of those influences, that let us catch a glimpse of other small ingredients that make the final result richer, like the soul on &ldquo;Coney Island Memories&rdquo;, the funk-pop on &ldquo;Marsico&rdquo;, the baroque folk of &ldquo;Musical Express&rdquo; or the northern soul of &ldquo;Saltamontes&rdquo;. That is the definition of banquet that <strong>Giorgio Tuma</strong> proposed on that album: dishes full of all the ingredients imaginable, mixed with elegance, color, sometimes exoticism, sophistication, sometimes seriousness, but always achieving excellent results. Like &ldquo;&hellip;And Three Parasol Stars&rdquo;, &ldquo;Let&rsquo;s Make The Stevens Cake!!!&rdquo;, &ldquo;Astroland By Bus&rdquo;&hellip; &nbsp;And ultimately that feeling of melancholy that stays with you after such a feast &ndash; sweet, sad, unrepeatable, unforgettable&hellip;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This electric blue vinyl will be released as a 300-copy, numbered, limited edition and it will have two extra songs for the digital version that were not included on the original LP (which will also be available for download as MP3 included with the vinyl). &ldquo;Flying Bicycles To Reykjavik&rdquo; is pop, jazz and soul, one of the most agile songs that forms a part of this fantastic collection of songs. &ldquo;Innocent Thoughts Fluorescent Words&rdquo; is a silent but luminous goodbye. Petit fours? There are no small dishes when we are talking about <strong>Giorgio Tuma</strong>&rsquo;s banquets. Every last detail counts, used completely, enjoyed to the last drop. It&rsquo;s a way of living made into sound.</p><p><br /><br />&nbsp;</p> FUGU “Pardon My French (Singles 1996-1998) (25th Elefant Anniversary Reissue)” https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/1005/FUGU “Pardon My French (Singles 1996-1998) (25th Elefant Anniversary Reissue)” <p>One of the most sought-after Singles from Elefant Records was that one that <strong>Mehdi Zannad </strong>released in 1998. <strong>Bob Stanley</strong> (SAINT ETIENNE) named it Single of the year, after a Split Single with STEREOLAB and before a Split with SAINT ETIENNE themselves. This release helped place FUGU among the names of reference for lovers of cult pop, and veteran collectors.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Because of all of this, and because of the recent appearance of his marvelous album as THE LAST DETAIL with <strong>Erin Moran</strong> of A GIRL CALLED EDDY, we wanted one of the last releases that we included in our collection of reissues in honor of Elefant Records&rsquo; 25th anniversary to be this Single, which we are releasing with all kinds of incredible extras. And, the Single has become a Mini-LP with 12 songs including, in addition to the ones that were originally on the famous Single (&ldquo;F31&rdquo;, &ldquo;Interlude 3&rdquo; and &ldquo;F1&rdquo;), &nbsp;we are adding the ones that were on the Split Single with STEREOLAB (&ldquo;F30&rdquo; and &ldquo;F24 (Instrumental)&rdquo;), named one of the 50 best Singles that year by Les Inrockuptibles, as well as the songs from the EP he released on Semantic in 1996: &ldquo;F24 (Dipodomys)&rdquo;, &ldquo;F4 (Coypou)&rdquo;, &ldquo;F15 (Alactaga Sauteur)&rdquo;, &ldquo;Interlude 1&rdquo;, &ldquo;Interlude 2&rdquo;, &ldquo;F22 (G&eacute;orhyque De Zech)&rdquo; and &ldquo;F26 (Ant&eacute;chinomys)&rdquo;.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>It&rsquo;s a delicious journey through sixties sounds, psychedelic folk, precious arrangements, celestial harmonies, GORKY&rsquo;S ZYGOTIC MYNCI, the most elegant strings, LEFT BANKE&hellip; It&rsquo;s an absolute gem, and object of desire for the most serious collectors and lovers of camera pop. 10&rdquo; white vinyl, limited and numbered, 300 copies.</p> NEW RERELEASES FOR THE ELEFANT RECORDS 25th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/1006/NEW RERELEASES FOR THE ELEFANT RECORDS 25th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION <p>We are almost finished with the series of re-releases we have been putting out for many months now, in honor of our 25th anniversary in 2014. The series has included such distinguished names as FAMILY, LE MANS, LA CASA AZUL, CAMERA OBSCURA, NIZA, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, THE SCHOOL, JUNIPER MOON, LOS FLECHAZOS, COOPER and LA BIEN QUERIDA, among others. To almost bring things to a close, we are simultaneously releasing a series of exquisite rereleases.</p><p><br />To start with, we are going to release that FUGU Single again that we originally released in 1998, and it is especially relevant because <strong>Mehdi Zannad</strong> has just released a marvelous album on Elefant in collaboration with <strong>Erin Moran</strong> (A GIRL CALLED EDDY) under the name THE LAST DETAIL. This Single has been a collector&rsquo;s item for a long time now, and we are releasing it this time as a 300-copy numbered-limited-edition white 10&rdquo; vinyl, and it will include the songs that were on the Split that FUGU released in 1997 with STEREOLAB as well as their first EP from 1996. There are 12 songs rereleased for the occasion. It&rsquo;s wonderful.</p><p><br />What&rsquo;s more, the first album, now out of print, from the Italians, FITNESS FOREVER, will also be re-released &ndash; where we will remember their orchestral pop and Mediterranean airs &ndash; on a transparent red vinyl, 300-copy numbered-limited-edition, which will also include the two songs that appeared on that also out of print &ldquo;Mondo Fitness EP&rdquo;.</p><p><br />Another of the simultaneous re-releases will be the second album (and the first on Elefant) of another distinguished Italian, <strong>Giorgio Tuma</strong>, and his &ldquo;My Vocalese Fun Fair&rdquo;. It is a treaty on elegant pop, full of psychedelia, samba and soul, with magnificent arrangements, which will be released for the first time on vinyl. It will be an electric blue vinyl, and will also be a 300-copy numbered-limited-edition that will include two extra songs in the digital release and for download, which were not previously included on the album.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Finally, we are releasing an extremely limited edition of t-shirts and buttons with the design that <strong>Xabi Zirikian</strong>, of <strong>Loreak Mendian</strong>, made for the first Elefant Records t-shirt. The old logo that was the label&rsquo;s image for a really long time is coming back to life as a yellow t-shirt and an orange t-shirt, and the same for the buttons.<br />&nbsp;<br />We only have one release left to complete this collection of 25 re-releases for our 25th anniversary. We are telling you now it will be the compilation &ldquo;Hong Kong&rdquo; which should have been included in the trilogy of compilations dedicated to cities, but which was never released. And in honor of this collection we have done something very special with the preparation.

The instant we heard the two songs that made up what in the end was the introductory Single by this trio from Madrid, we knew right away that a fruitful relationship was just beginning and that we were going to be totally won over by their songs. And they haven&rsquo;t taken long at all to give us new fruit. &ldquo;Movidas&rdquo; is a numbered, (500 copy) numbered-limited-edition, pink-vinyl 10&rdquo; Mini-LP that, obviously, is being included on our &ldquo;New Adventures In Pop&rdquo; collection, dedicated to pop music&rsquo;s new names and emerging groups. CARI&Ntilde;O are freshness, ease, and unstoppablefun. Somewhere between LOS ROMEOS and HELEN LOVE, between PAPA TOPO at their most punk and AEROL&Iacute;NEAS FEDERALES. It&rsquo;s impossible to hold back your smile.</p><p style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 11px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 102); line-height: 14px;\">&nbsp;</p><p style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 11px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 102); line-height: 14px;\">Because their songs overflow with cynicism, with craziness, with the unexpected flourish, but at the same time with naturalness, with awakening, with the most innocent feelings. That&rsquo;s why, after hearing<strong style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;\">Mar&iacute;a</strong>,&nbsp;<strong style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;\">Paola</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;\">Alicia</strong>&rsquo;s songs, you have the feeling that what lies beneath is an instantaneous, urgent and immediate need to shout out the love they feel in a way that no one else has ever done before: simply and straightforwardly, with its whole brutal spirit and hazy feelings, with all its sweetness and bitterness. The pristine, adolescent honesty of &ldquo;Canci&oacute;n De Pop De Amor&rdquo;; the sharply hilarious irony of &ldquo;Bisexual&rdquo;; the disproportionate innocence of &ldquo;Todos Los D&iacute;as&rdquo;; the anger full of amazing rhymes of &ldquo;Su Portal&rdquo;; the uncontained vitriol and the punk spirit of &ldquo;Mierda Seca&rdquo;; the enchanting frivolousness of &ldquo;Momento Inadecuado&rdquo;; the impossible and terribly fun occurrence of &ldquo;Souvenirs&rdquo;; the wicked-tongued existential emptiness of &ldquo;Nada Sigue Igual&rdquo;.</p><p style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 11px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 102); line-height: 14px;\">&nbsp;</p><p style=\"margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 11px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 102); line-height: 14px;\">With this new release, in record time, CARI&Ntilde;O has managed to perfect what they do, maintaining their immediacy intact.

That&nbsp;<strong>Harvey Williams</strong>&nbsp;(ANOTHER SUNNY DAY, BLUEBOY, THE FIELD MICE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS) wanted to contribute to the press release about THE LAST DETAIL&rsquo;s debut album (the name of the band comes from the 1973 movie starring&nbsp;<strong>Jack Nicholson</strong>) already says a lot about how special this group and this album are:&nbsp;</p><p><br /><br /><em>&ldquo;So how should one react when one&rsquo;s two favourite contemporary singer-songwriters decide to record an album together?&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi Zannad</strong>&nbsp;has a peerless collection of long-players &amp; one-off 45&rsquo;s behind him, under both his own name and as FUGU, while&nbsp;<strong>Erin Moran</strong>&nbsp;(A GIRL CALLED EDDY) released one of this century&rsquo;s great lost albums back in 2004. The stakes were high, as were my expectations. Thankfully THE LAST DETAIL doesn&rsquo;t disappoint. Breezy yet reflective. Melancholic but never maudlin, and always resolutely upbeat.&nbsp;</em></p><p><br /><br /><em>While there are occasional signals indicating the artists&rsquo; individual creative pasts, the album has a personality all its own, as all great collaborations do (<strong>Nancy </strong>&amp;<strong>Lee</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Gainsbourg </strong>&amp;<strong>Birkin</strong>, PET SHOP BOYS &amp;&nbsp;<strong>Dusty Springfield</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Sandie Shaw</strong>&nbsp;&amp; THE SMITHS...). Of course, there are nods to pop&rsquo;s rich tapestry echoing through the record; such references are inevitable for a duo so knowledgeable and passionate about music. But the songs are far too emotional and honest to be dismissed as mere postmodernism; they live and breathe. And while it&rsquo;s difficult to pick out highlights, I have to single out &ldquo;Places&rdquo; as particularly tremendous; lyrically a fond remembrance of times past set to a soaring, joyous melody with umpteen hooks: you think you&rsquo;re hearing the chorus, then the song moves on to the real chorus. And then it does the same trick again. Magnificent&rdquo;.</em><em>&nbsp;</em></p><p><br /><br />So, here we are.&nbsp;<strong>Erin Moran</strong>&nbsp;(A GIRL CALLED EDDY) and&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi Zannad</strong>&nbsp;(FUGU) have made an album together, which is going to be released on Elefant Records.&nbsp;<br />The collaboration began to take shape when&nbsp;<strong>Zannad</strong>&nbsp;fell in love with&nbsp;<strong>Erin</strong>&rsquo;s exquisite voice on her debut album &ldquo;A Girl Called Eddy&rdquo; - produced with&nbsp;<strong>Richard Hawley</strong>&nbsp;and critically acclaimed in the press from Uncut to Mojo to Rolling Stone and The New York Times, while&nbsp;<strong>Erin</strong>&nbsp;was a fan of FUGU from the very first album - which she bought as a &lsquo;staff recommends&rsquo; at the old Kim&rsquo;s Video on Bleecker St. in New York City.&nbsp;</p><p><br /><br /><strong>Erin Moran</strong>&nbsp;was born in the same hospital as&nbsp;<strong>Frank Sinatra</strong>&nbsp;in Hoboken (New Jersey), raised on the &ldquo;Jersey Shore&rdquo;, but has called NYC her home for decades. When her debut album was released in 2004, it not only received critical acclaim from the press, but also acquired her some A-list fans: childhood hero&rsquo;s like&nbsp;<strong>Burt Bacharach</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Gilbert O&rsquo;Sullivan</strong>, and artists as diverse as&nbsp;<strong>Robert Smith</strong>&nbsp;of THE CURE, to&nbsp;<strong>Tracey Thorn</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Jane Birkin</strong>, and&nbsp;<strong>Nina Persson</strong>. She can be heard singing on records by&nbsp;<strong>Ron Sexsmith</strong>, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS and many more, but interestingly (as&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;first heard her) she is the voice of the girl in the duet with Philippe Katerine; indie hit &ldquo;Parlez-Vous Anglais Mr. Katerine?&rdquo; which also just so happens to be the opening song on the Elefant compilation &ldquo;Montecarlo&rdquo; (released in 1997 for the inauguration of the &ldquo;Colecci&oacute;n De Las Ciudades&rdquo;, and which includes the participation of among others,&nbsp;<strong>Harvey Williams&nbsp;</strong>himself). Synchronicity all around then.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Many have been wondering for years when A GIRL CALLED EDDY was going to release a second album&hellip; We finally have an answer to that question - at the beginning of 2019! (with a single before the end of this year) While waiting for that fans can calm their nerves with this very special project in collaboration with&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;<strong>Zannad</strong>.</p><p><br /><strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;is a pop-raconteur: not only an established musician, songwriter, producer, but an architectural drawing master as well. He&rsquo;s exhibited his work in gallery&rsquo;s all over France and has been teaching in some of Paris&rsquo; most esteemed institutions. He&rsquo;s released two marvelous albums as FUGU, singles shared with STEREOLAB and SAINT ETIENNE, co-wrote on the soundtrack for the film &ldquo;La France&rdquo; by&nbsp;<strong>Serge Bozon</strong>&nbsp;in 2007, arranged for&nbsp;<strong>Barbara Carlotti</strong>&nbsp;and TAHITI 80, produced APRIL MARCH, as well as releasing a delicious single on Elefant Records in 1998 (which we will be specifically re-releasing in a very special limited edition).</p><p><br /><strong>Erin&nbsp;</strong>and&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;met up in London, Paris and Nancy to write, and along the way held recording sessions in the band TAHITI 80&rsquo;s Lab/recording studio in Rouen (where&nbsp;<strong>Zannad</strong>&nbsp;recorded his second full length, &ldquo;As Found&rdquo;).&nbsp;<strong>Erin</strong>&nbsp;wrote choruses that&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;turned into songs, and vice-versa, and both had brought some of their own already-written tunes on board when in 2014 Elefant Records showed up on the scene and offered them the possibility of making an album after hearing the first four songs from the project.&nbsp;<br />Sessions were booked, orchestra&rsquo;s were contracted! and the record started to take shape with the help of various members of&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&rsquo;s core band of FUGU, as well as members of TAME IMPALA, SYD MATTERS and TAHITI 80.<br /><br />And so finally, we have the prodigious result in our hands. On this album you can hear the work of songwriters who are tremendously in love with music. With deep respect and inspiration, care and affection. Spinning in their heads, always, the greats...<strong>&nbsp;Jimmy Webb</strong>,<strong>&nbsp;Paul McCartney</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Eric Carmen</strong>,<strong>&nbsp;Carole King&nbsp;</strong>and<strong>&nbsp;Paddy McAloon</strong>. This is a perfect, stand-out collection of songs on which both authors take turns with the vocals. The album begins with &ldquo;Softly (Part 1)&rdquo; as a playful, catchy opening &hellip; &ldquo;Fun Fair&rdquo; breathes a certain air of classic romance, with the piano progression and that final development of&nbsp;<em>sabadabadas</em>&nbsp;that is evocative of&nbsp;<strong>Fran&ccedil;oise Hardy</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Claudine Longet</strong>. Enthralling. &ldquo;You&rsquo;re Not Mine&rdquo; has something of the soberness and strength of&nbsp;<strong>Laura Nyro</strong>, of the melodic elegance of&nbsp;<strong>Evie Sands</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Linda Perhacs</strong>, of the inspiration of&nbsp;<strong>Joni Mitchell&nbsp;</strong>and the mysticism of&nbsp;<strong>Judee Sill</strong>. It&rsquo;s in the lines of these songs, which abound with the folk-pop of the sixties and seventies, where the album tries to find its place among the classics. That BEACH BOYS touch is present in a lot of harmonies, like &ldquo;Trust Your Buddy&rdquo;, now with&nbsp;<strong>Mehdi</strong>&nbsp;singing, but the production work brings them closer at times to the BEE GEES at their folk-iest. Aren&rsquo;t you inevitably transported just listening to that guitar solo? Because, it&rsquo;s time to confess, I don&rsquo;t know if you&rsquo;ve ever had the feeling of listening to a classic the very first time you hear a new song. That is what happened for us with &ldquo;Take My Hand&rdquo;, the absolute conviction that this song, with its majestic string arrangements, turns its references into travel companions. LOVE<strong>, John Denver</strong>, BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD, THE MILLENNIUM, THE LEFT BANKE&hellip; &ldquo;Fairweather Friend&rdquo; brings&nbsp;<strong>Erin</strong>&nbsp;back to lead vocals for a song that once again evokes a folk vibe of the early 70&rsquo;s on a song she says she wrote &lsquo;while staring at the cover of&nbsp;<strong>McCartneys</strong>&nbsp;&ldquo;Ram&rdquo; for far too long&rsquo;.</p><p><br /><br />The energy levels are off the charts with the incredible &ldquo;Lazy&rdquo;. The classical piano introduction, followed by a prodigious soul push, then breathtaking wind instruments and a chorus that makes you want to sing it with your arms reaching into the air, as if you were trying to touch the sky with&nbsp;<strong>Erin</strong>&nbsp;sounding like a latter-day&nbsp;<strong>Jackie DeShannon</strong>&hellip; &ldquo;Talk To Me&rdquo; takes an important stylistic leap, with production more marked by the 80&rsquo;s and neon lights and Casio&rsquo;s. The melody of the verses is exquisite and the chorus is downright immortal. But the thing is, if we try to read between the lines in the lyrics, could it be that this song is talking about the musical relationship between our two composers? Pure magic. And finally, it&rsquo;s a show of the love of music and the unquestionable capacity of these two songwriters to build eternal songs, without worrying about what decade to turn to.</p><p><br />&ldquo;Die Cast&rdquo; is one of those songs that is so small, on such a big album, that it winds up becoming one of your favorites. It&rsquo;s delicate and fragile, somewhere between a&nbsp;habanera&nbsp;and a border sound, cinematic, powerful in its smallness. &ldquo;Tears&rdquo; is more rock, closer to the BEATLES at their most energetic. Solid and evocative at the same time. And once again, that guitar solo with fuzz that takes us to the times when rock moved minds. To talk about &ldquo;Places&rdquo; after&nbsp;<strong>Harvey Williams</strong>&rsquo;&nbsp;words seems audacious. We just want to say that we totally agree. It&rsquo;s a huge song, the purity of&nbsp;<strong>Brian Wilson</strong>, the sweetness of AMERICAN SPRING and the grandeur of&nbsp;<strong>Roger Nichols</strong>. &ldquo;Softly (Part 2)&rdquo; falls back into the melodic line that opens the album, but it gives it a tremendously fun fifties touch, with echoes of surf and garage, and makes it instrumental. To close the album, &ldquo;Photographs&rdquo; gives a melancholic touch, between clavichords and acoustic guitars -like the inevitable romanticism that also opened &ldquo;Fun Fair&rdquo;.</p><p><br /><br />This is most definitely a special album, but beyond the names that have shaped it, it is special because it holds a group of inimitable songs that sometimes feels hard to believe were written in 2018. Inspiration, sonic artistry, respect and musical elegance. As if there were a secret rule: to remember every last detail. Even down to the album presentation, with fantastic design by the esteemed&nbsp;<strong>Julian House</strong>&nbsp;(of the &ldquo;Intro&rdquo; collective) who&rsquo;s designed covers for STEREOLAB, CAN, PRIMAL SCREAM, BROADCAST, and many others. Everything in place.</p><p><br /><br />They say, &ldquo;God is in the details&rdquo;. May we present to you, THE LAST DETAIL.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/4/00004544.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/IAaabyVyahg\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> GIORGIO TUMA: Video-clip for &quot;Foxes Don’t Lie&quot; https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/1007/GIORGIO TUMA: Video-clip for &quot;Foxes Don’t Lie&quot; <p>Such is the magic of music that sometimes it is capable of changing the meaning of images. And sometimes the images themselves are capable of changing the perspective we might have about a song. Something like the chicken or the egg dilemma, but expressed in the relationship between two arts that multiply themselves when they meet. We have talked several times about the cinematic and evocative qualities of the music of Italy&rsquo;s <strong>Giorgio Tuma</strong>. But the video that the Spanish artist <strong>Raquel Calvo </strong>made for his song &ldquo;Foxes Don&rsquo;t Lie&rdquo; (previously, she had made the video for &ldquo;Mountain Elia K&rdquo;), included on his most recent album, &ldquo;This Life Denied Me Your Love&rdquo;, has made our heads explode and let us see that the creative limits of <strong>Giorgio</strong> (and <strong>Raquel</strong>) are atmospheres above what we thought they could reach.<br />&nbsp;</p><p>The Association for Professional Illustrators in Madrid (APIM, in Spanish), has confirmed this, awarding <strong>Raquel</strong> (who uses the alias DondeEstaMiPollo) in their annual awards with the New Talent award for making this video. It is full of tenderness and fantasy, transcending the song by our beloved Italian composer and turning it into one of those stories that makes your heart tremble, between autumnal chromatic palettes and textile textures (please forgive our playing with phonetics but the way the video plays with wools and other fabrics is sublime) that would undoubtedly have enamored <strong>Karel Zeman</strong> (the father of stop-motion) for his &ldquo;Adventures Of Sinbad The Sailor&rdquo;. The story of friendship between these two characters, a fox and a young girl that begins when one of them realizes that they have something in common: the same color hair. The story needed more than a year of work to make it all, and five thousand four hundred ninety six frames of animation by just one person. The video was filmed using the traditional animation technique called &ldquo;cut-out&rdquo;, which is done by making cut outs in materials such as stiff paper, cardboard, fabric and other similar materials to make flat characters. Frame by frame.<br />&nbsp;</p><p>These are two artists who confirm that sometimes creativity is full of magic, and in this case, the magic that comes from two pieces of work that value each other as if they had been born to go together.<br />&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/zdVjGxxS2q0\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> ATTIC LIGHTS: “Never By Myself” advance Single for their next album https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/1000/ATTIC LIGHTS: “Never By Myself” advance Single for their next album <p>It is not every day that there are new songs from ATTIC LIGHTS. That&rsquo;s why it is a special pleasure to announce that very soon we will have a new album from the Scottish group, called &ldquo;Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks&rdquo;. And get ready everyone, because this album is full of pure melodic inspiration condensed into three-minute indie-pop songs. &ldquo;Never By Myself&rdquo; is the first advance release, in Digital Single format, for this upcoming album. The song is perfect pop with a solid verse, an impeccable chorus, fantastic vocal harmonies and which has its own rather peculiar story behind it. <strong>Colin</strong> wrote the song on a bus when he got lost and left behind after a concert in Inverness (Scotland). The rest of the band were so tired that they didn&rsquo;t realize <strong>Colin</strong> wasn&rsquo;t in the tour bus with them and they left for their next stop. <strong>Colin</strong>&rsquo;s phone was out of battery and he spent the whole night wandering around the town, ultimately ending up sleeping on a bench by Loch Ness. The next day, he caught a bus to meet up with his band mates in the next town on the tour, and on the way, &nbsp;he wrote this marvelous song that captures something of the youthful bounce of THE HOLLIES and the knowing lyricism of THE KINKS. It was an unfortunate experience for Colin but he&rsquo;ll be happy to know that it resulted in one of the band&rsquo;s best songs. The video for &ldquo;Never By Myself&rdquo; was directed by <strong>Iain Mutch</strong>, who has made other videos at Elefant for BMX BANDITS and THE YEARNING.<br />&nbsp;</p><p>For the Single&rsquo;s B side, ATTIC LIGHTS offers us a cover of &ldquo;Bright Eyes&rdquo;, the <strong>Mike Batt</strong> song that <strong>Art Garfunkel</strong>made famous and which was included in the cult British animated film, &ldquo;Watership Down&rdquo; (1978). <strong>Jamie </strong>has always liked the song, and regularly played it on the piano in the studio. On the last tour he suggested playing it live in the style of BIG STAR or TEENAGE FANCLUB. Over time it has become one of the group&rsquo;s most popular live songs and the requests from their fans to record a studio version grew every time they played it. So here it is, an unbeatable B-side and a perfect complement to &ldquo;Never By Myself&rdquo;.<br /><br />What else can we say? The songs speak for themselves and the content of &ldquo;Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks&rdquo; is absolutely impeccable. Yes, we have the privilege of having heard the album already. Trust us. Or better yet, trust your own pop instinct and enjoy these two songs while you wait for the new album to get here.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/VvK1zy2V7xk\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/LW6IunTsWFc\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> NELEONARD: &quot;Un Lugar Imaginado&quot; LP/CD https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/997/NELEONARD: &quot;Un Lugar Imaginado&quot; LP/CD <p>After meeting all expectations with the first album, &ldquo;Las Causas Perdidas&rdquo;, which made them the next big promise of pop sung in Spanish, the powerful live show NELEONARD showed off on the tour for that album became one of the biggest keys to making &ldquo;Un Lugar Imaginado&rdquo; the culmination of such a thrilling proposition. Because &ldquo;Un Lugar Imaginado&rdquo; beats its predecessor in intensity and dynamics, and it makes an incredibly intelligent read of all things epic in pop, that roller coaster of emotions made out of melodies, arrangements, starts and stops. Nothing needs to be confirmed; it&rsquo;s already done. Let yourselves go.</p><p><br />We open the doors with &ldquo;El Mismo&rdquo;, with its summery, lazy air, and that beginning that feels like an homage to DOBLE PLETINA (in fact,&nbsp;<strong>Laura Antol&iacute;n</strong>&nbsp;is present here on the choruses). It&rsquo;s a story about break-ups and disappointment, with an emotional crescendo based on really delicious, exquisite choruses and chords. &ldquo;Sorpresa, Vac&iacute;o&rdquo; (the second advance single for the album) steps on the gas, with echoes of HOUSEMARTINS and early CARDIGANS, backing up a reflection on the idiosyncrasy of giving and not receiving. And we have an amazing example of a whole gallery of structural changes, stops, starts&hellip; A roller coaster, remember? &ldquo;Por No Hablar&rdquo; is a huge slap in the face. Clear and evident traces of sadness that&nbsp;<strong>Nele Nav&iacute;o&nbsp;</strong>explicitly recognizes himself in, exposing his limitations, his inability to explain himself in certain situations, in a song that is, musically, a leap into the emotional abyss, overflowing with intensity. It&rsquo;s ironic, isn&rsquo;t it? And the cherry on top is&nbsp;<strong>Ferm&iacute; Herrero</strong>&rsquo;s&nbsp;(TRONCO) participation in the vocals, solid and perfectly timed. &ldquo;Mi Mentira Favorita&rdquo; is new proof of that song dynamic and structuring that we mentioned before. The way it builds until it reaches the breaking point, exuberant, delicious, groundbreaking&hellip; &ldquo;Llegaste a ser mi mentira favorita&rdquo; (<em>You became my favorite lie</em>). What we want to be but isn&rsquo;t, no matter how much we wish for it. We already know &ldquo;El Buf&oacute;n&rdquo;, the first advance single for the album. It&rsquo;s a revenge-song that elevates the musical hypotheses of CAMERA OBSCURA to the highest levels (this group was an obsession while &ldquo;Un Lugar Imaginado&rdquo; was being written). Castanets, playing around with vocals, strings, echoes of soul. Marvelous. Side A closes with &ldquo;Undostr&eacute;s&hellip; Y Adi&oacute;s&rdquo;, a song to emptiness, to melancholy, to the ephemeral.<br /><br />&ldquo;El &Uacute;ltimo Segundo&rdquo; is a luminous opening to Side B, with touches of funk and electro-pop, somewhat unusual for the band, somewhere between LE MANS and SUPER FURRY ANIMALS at their most danceable, showing us the band&rsquo;s predisposition for trying out other sonic territories, but always with their own personal mark. &ldquo;Jonas&rdquo;, a tribute to WEEZER, or how music is part of the most important moments of our lives. It&rsquo;s new pop perfection. &ldquo;Camareros&rdquo; begins by getting our attention with the three-four time and an rhythm &amp; blues beat. It&rsquo;s the beginning of one of the most incredible&nbsp;<em>tours de force&nbsp;</em>on this album. At three and a half minutes there is an electric leap, immediately followed by that pause that you know is that moment when you are so close to the ground, getting ready to take off running for the highest point possible. And there it goes. &ldquo;Lo M&aacute;s Importante&rdquo; goes into top gear, as if it were compensating. But not. Impossible dynamics made with such simplicity that they feel totally natural. &ldquo;Mil Y Un Detalles&rdquo; takes us back to the best Scottish folk-pop, like (once again) CAMERA OBSCURA, BELLE &amp; SEBASTIAN, AZTEC CAMERA&hellip; With those northern-soul choruses and those winds that sound like rays of sunshine. Exquisite. Energized. This amazing collection of songs closes with &ldquo;Qu&eacute; Asco Me Doy Cuando&hellip;&rdquo;, which is darker and rougher, finishes up with a wonderful soul development, the kind that makes your chest swell. Marvelous.<br /><br />It&rsquo;s hard to say exactly where the magic of NELEONARD comes from. It could be&nbsp;<strong>Nele</strong>&rsquo;s lyrics, which range from cynicism to confession, always with the highest level of sensitivity. The exceptional vocal play of&nbsp;<strong>Laura Alonso</strong>&nbsp;takes all the songs a new level of reading them, and brings seduction into the mix. The instrumental solidness of the group (<strong>Eloy Bernal</strong>,<strong>Elena Comas</strong>,<strong>Guille Rodr&iacute;guez </strong>and<strong>Pedro Se&ntilde;alada</strong>), who are like a perfectly-oiled machine, allows them to make something so tremendously complex feel easy. Or maybe it&rsquo;s that behind this complicated machinery, they are just trying to make pop songs, the kind that are timeless without even trying. And do they ever!</p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/8/00004528.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/s6L3LF8L6Ys\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> ALPACA SPORTS: Digital Single for &quot;I'll Do Anything You Want”&quot; with extra ... https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/998/ALPACA SPORTS: Digital Single for &quot;I'll Do Anything You Want”&quot; with extra track and Video-Clip <p>We are still enjoying the treasures from ALPACA SPORTS&rsquo; last album, and we are releasing this new Digital Single taken from &ldquo;From Paris With Love&rdquo;, an album full of precious songs that tells the story of&nbsp;<strong>Andreas</strong>&rsquo; time in the capital of France. One of the biggest gems on this album is the opening track, &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll Do Anything You Want&rdquo;. The song has touches of soul and disco but with a jangly spirit working for a chorus that is equal parts danceable and exciting.<br /><br />In fact, both&nbsp;<strong>Andreas</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Lisle&nbsp;</strong>coincide in referencing ORANGE JUICE when they talk about the songwriting process for this song.&nbsp;<strong>Andreas</strong>&nbsp;tells it this way:&nbsp;<em>&ldquo;When I sent the first demo to&nbsp;<strong>Lisle</strong> remember I felt quite unhappy about it, because I wasn&rsquo;t able to make it sound near as good as it sounded in my head. I wanted it to feel very dancy with jangly guitars and bouncy drums, and the Glasgow band ORANGE JUICE was a big inspiration. I mentioned this to&nbsp;<strong>Lisle</strong>&nbsp;and the next day I received an amazing demo which was better than I could ever imagine&rdquo;.</em>&nbsp;To which&nbsp;<strong>Lisle </strong>answered:&nbsp;<em>&ldquo;The timing was good for me, because I was listening a lot to ORANGE JUICE&rsquo;s second record at the time, so I think it was subconscious to make the drums and guitar a bit like &ldquo;Rip It Up&rdquo;. I think because&nbsp;<strong>Andreas&nbsp;</strong>was so pleased with what I did with the first demo, he allowed me to indulge in making the guitar solo the two-part fuzz-distortion part we ended up with. I was imagining something a bit like the intro to BELLE &amp; SEBASTIAN&rsquo;s &ldquo;I&rsquo;m A Cuckoo&rdquo; or THE BEATLES&rsquo; &ldquo;And Your Bird Can Sing&rdquo; there, and so I&rsquo;m happy&nbsp;<strong>Andreas</strong>&nbsp;let me get crazy with it&rdquo;.</em><br /><br />The B-side includes a previously unreleased track, &ldquo;In The Sand&rdquo;, which is an example of ALPACA SPORTS&rsquo; sound&rsquo;s strongest virtues: sweetness and delicateness, agility and energy, and above all, solid melodies and choruses. As a bonus with this release, we can also enjoy the video of the title track, directed by&nbsp;<strong>Jonas B&ouml;rjesson.&nbsp;</strong>The video came about after our stars visited the the director&rsquo;s parents&rsquo; garage in Halmstad where they found a lot of objects full of melancholy and nostalgia. These objects served as spontaneous inspiration for a video full of those sweetly sad yet tremendously fun tones, which includes the very first ever tennis match between&nbsp;<strong>Amanda</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Andreas</strong>. Enjoy it.</p> NOS NOS MIRAN: Release “Contigo” [4-song Digital Single] https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/996/NOS NOS MIRAN: Release “Contigo” [4-song Digital Single] <p>With this new release, NOS MIRAN are taking over. With that name that is so mysterious, and those videos where they develop that universe all their own that navigates through the irrational, NOS MIRAN radically abandon their more pop spirit and leap into building on minor chords, developing a darker Digital EP, openly hazy, and that turns restraint into tension, turns the unknown into poetry. Meandering between Italo disco and the dream house sound, with electronic and minimalist bases, they develop that strange world around the dance floor.</p><p>The best proof is that &ldquo;Mientras Bailo&rdquo;, which defines a dreamlike world that is hard to describe, that searches for a connection with the listener through something other than logic. Or the more solid &ldquo;El Planeta&rdquo;, which moves them closer to KRAFTWERK and MORODER, with DEVO&rsquo;s martial tones and the dreamy strength of YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA, stellar space travels through geometric dreams. &ldquo;Contigo&rdquo; marks a change compared to the others: less psychedelia, more direct, breathtaking, as if LIO and SAINT ETIENNE were in the midst of a deep melancholy for some impossible love. By the way, the video is once again directed by <strong>Antonio M&aacute;iquez</strong>, who is becoming an intrinsic part of the definition of the aura surrounding NOS MIRAN. &ldquo;Algo Va A Ir Mal&rdquo; is a difficult, pessimistic, sad, closing song that is not for dancing, almost closer to shoegazing. But like artists with something personal to offer, <strong>Sergio Rodr&iacute;guez</strong> and <strong>Marta Quintana</strong> know how to turn the painful into something beautiful. Their world is disturbing and poetic, undefinable and inexplicable, and that is what makes it a mix of attraction and excitement for the listener. Like when you let yourself get carried away with something that you know is not good for you, but somehow you feel like you have to be there, like it is where you are going to be safest. As they say, it&rsquo;s a distorted world, but maybe it&rsquo;s the best possible world.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>TRACKLIST: 01 Mientras Bailo&nbsp; 02 El Planeta&nbsp; 03 Contigo&nbsp; 04 Algo Va A Ir Mal&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/rp1987o2o9w\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> PAPA TOPO: Puta Y Amada (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/999/PAPA TOPO: Puta Y Amada (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) <p>We are releasing the Digital EP for the soundtrack for <strong>Marc Ferrer</strong>&rsquo;s movie, &ldquo;Puta Y Amada&rdquo;, with the songs &ldquo;Telenovela&rdquo; (a duet with PAPA TOPO and&nbsp;<strong>La Prohibida</strong>),&nbsp;&ldquo;Ese Hombre&rdquo; (a duet with PAPA TOPO and&nbsp;<strong>Yurena)</strong>&nbsp;and &ldquo;&Eacute;xtasis Total&rdquo; by BELINDA Y DELFINA.<br /><br />The album opens with the duet between PAPA TOPO and&nbsp;<strong>Yurena</strong>, a danceable yet melancholic and dramatic version of &ldquo;Ese Hombre&rdquo;, the classic by <strong>Manuel Alejandro</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Ana Magdalena</strong>&nbsp;that <strong>Roc&iacute;o Jurado</strong> made famous in the early 80s. Right after that, we have &ldquo;Telenovela&rdquo;, an original and autobiographic song written together by <strong>Adri&agrave;&nbsp;</strong>and&nbsp;<strong>Marc&nbsp;</strong>about their relationship (a subject that is also one of the main plotlines of the movie). The songwriting, which drinks musically from melodic Spanish song as much as it does from the electronic pop of PET SHOP BOYS, has a complex structure, full of changes and suppressive modulations like soap opera-y twists, giving the song a kind of &ldquo;progressive pop&rdquo; feel. Like a television show, the songs builds tension as it develops, until the climactic final episode in which, to the tune of strident trumpets and&nbsp; deafening cymbals and bells, love is pronounced dead.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>The video for &ldquo;Telenovela&rdquo; is a trash horror thriller telling the painful four-part love story, starring <strong>Adri&agrave; Arbona</strong>,<strong>&nbsp;La Prohibida</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Berner Mayn&eacute;s</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Marc Ferrer</strong>. It is influenced by &ldquo;Law of Desire&rdquo; by <strong>Pedro Almod&oacute;var</strong>, &ldquo;Water Drops on Burning Rocks&rdquo; by&nbsp;<strong>Fran&ccedil;ois Ozon</strong>&nbsp;and the Italian<em>Giallo&nbsp;</em>movies from the 80&rsquo;s. The result is an extravagant mix of genres that is perfect for the always exaggeratedly eclectic music of PAPA TOPO.<br /><br />The album closes with &ldquo;&Eacute;xtasis Total&rdquo;, a powerful electro-pop whirlwind written by <strong>Marc&nbsp;</strong>and&nbsp;<strong>Adri&agrave;&nbsp;</strong>and performed by BELINDA Y DELFINA, the nastiest duo of divas in pop right now. Both in the song and in the video, the sleepless actors delve into an ideal night of partying, evading the alienating reality of the mundane in which they are immersed every day, and declare their fleeting revolution. Both in the musical as well as in the visual, BELINDA Y DELFINA are guardians of all things trash, and among their references we can immediately find <strong>Yurena&nbsp;</strong>of &ldquo;A Por Ti&rdquo;, the duet from Marbella ANA Y ANTONELA, or&nbsp;<strong>Violeta G&oacute;mez</strong>.<br /><br />To accompany and celebrate this release, the videos for &ldquo;Telenovela&rdquo; and &ldquo;&Eacute;xtasis Total&rdquo;, both directed by <strong>Marc Ferrer</strong>, are being released simultaneously.<br /><br />&nbsp;</p> COOPER: Vinyl Reissues, Video-Clip and Tour https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/993/COOPER: Vinyl Reissues, Video-Clip and Tour <p>On October 5, two COOPER albums are being simultaneously re-released, two albums that were originally separated by nearly 14 years. Is this further confirmation that <strong>Alex Diez </strong>is a legendary musician who is timeless in the national pop scene, even beyond his career with LOS FLECHAZOS? Here, first of all, and due to how quickly the vinyl release of the last album, &ldquo;Tiempo, Temperatura, Agitaci&oacute;n&rdquo;, sold out, and because of the tour that will soon begin in national territory, Elefant is going to put out a special re-release of that album, as a limited edition black vinyl.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s a one-of-a-kind opportunity for those who didn&rsquo;t get a vinyl copy of the first edition, and at the same time it lets us celebrate a new opportunity to enjoy the band&rsquo;s stunning live show. On October 5, we will also release COOPER&rsquo;s new video, starring the song &ldquo;Dos Grados Bajo Cero&rdquo; - the most danceable and hallucinogenic song from &ldquo;Tiempo, Temperatura, Agitaci&oacute;n&rdquo; - directed by <strong>Juan Marigorta</strong> (Estudios Tripolares) and in which we find the ecstatic dances of <strong>Lady Secuela</strong> and <strong>Alex</strong>&rsquo;s acting, bathed with psychedelic brushstrokes from the group&rsquo;s universe and from the album&rsquo;s graphic design.<br />&nbsp;</p><p>On the other hand, and with the excuse of a series of re-releases we announced in 2014 for Elefant&rsquo;s 25th anniversary, a new vinyl version of what was COOPER&rsquo;s second album, &ldquo;Retrovisor&rdquo;, is going to be re-released, as a 500-copy, numbered, limited-edition, with three extra songs that were not included on the original release. First, there&rsquo;s the cover of LOS BOLIDOS&rsquo; &ldquo;R&aacute;fagas&rdquo;, which was previously released as the B-side of the CD single &ldquo;Oxidado&rdquo;. &nbsp;&ldquo;R&aacute;fagas&rdquo; is coming back out in physical format, and for the first time on vinyl. Another special inclusion is &ldquo;Seis Menos Diez&rdquo;, the THE MUFFS&rsquo; cover that appeared on the B-side of &ldquo;Rabia&rdquo;, a CD single that they gave away with the purchase of concert tickets for the &ldquo;Retrovisor&rdquo; tour. And finally, one last rescue &ndash; this time from the CD single &ldquo;747&rdquo;, another collector&rsquo;s item today: &ldquo;Hoy No&rdquo; will be included on the 2018 version of &ldquo;Retrovisor&rdquo; along with these other two fantastic covers.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Two exquisite rereleases that confirm that time does not go by for <strong>Alex Diez</strong>, that his songs continue to be as fresh as ever and his fans are still loyal to COOPER&rsquo;s bubbly, passionate and furious sound.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/8/00004478.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/3/00004513.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/PjzsJu7qXB4\" width=\"607\"></iframe><br />&nbsp;</p> CARIÑO: &quot;Llorando En La Limo&quot; [C. TANGANA Cover] Digital Single https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/995/CARIÑO: &quot;Llorando En La Limo&quot; [C. TANGANA Cover] Digital Single <p>To make the wait a bit lighter until &ldquo;Movidas&rdquo; (their anxiously awaited 10&rdquo; pink vinyl debut Mini-LP, coming out in November) comes out, and after the pop appetite that &ldquo;Canci&oacute;n De Pop De Amor&rdquo; created, CARI&Ntilde;O give us this great little gift. After how well-received their live version of <strong>C. Tangana</strong>&rsquo;s &ldquo;Llorando En La Limo&rdquo; was, they have decided to give it to us in Digital Single format. As they themselves say: <em>&ldquo;There is so much debate between pop, trap and the limit between the two. What is &ldquo;Llorando En La Limo&rdquo;? The truth is that we don&rsquo;t really know</em><em>. For us it&rsquo;s a little bit of everything, and we like this song, a lot. With our version, we have tried to build a bridge to new urban sounds that, to some extent, are ours too. We have slightly adapted the lyrics to our own experiences, meaning crying from feeling down, but not in limos - in friends&rsquo; houses, and maybe even on small scooters, because we don&rsquo;t have a car, but we do have a lot of love. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do&rdquo;.</em><br /><br />This is a statement of intent, a juicy appetizer that is betting on breaking down boundaries and biases, on building bridges in music and on the ability to appropriate a song to bring it into totally unexpected territory, where the connotations and readings of the song, even of the emotions it gives off, change radically. Because there is no doubt that these are our CARI&Ntilde;O: <strong>Paola</strong>, <strong>Alicia</strong> and <strong>Mar&iacute;a</strong> slapping us with electronic pop with guitars, and belting out their lyrics full of cynicism, ulterior motives, and of course, so much love.</p> TRONCO: &quot;Animales&quot;, advance Digital Single from their first album ... https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/994/TRONCO: &quot;Animales&quot;, advance Digital Single from their first album &quot;Tralará&quot; <p>The <strong>Herrero</strong> siblings gave us a good look at their particular universe with that fantastic Mini-LP called &ldquo;Abducida Por Formar Una Pareja&rdquo;. Very soon we will have &ldquo;Tralar&aacute;&rdquo;, their first full-length. Some people would talk about maturity, but they are allergic to that word. Others would talk about a step forward, but they are not moving in any definite direction. <strong>Conxita</strong> and <strong>Ferm&iacute;</strong> let themselves be carried away by their overflowing imagination, and go wherever that takes them. Without restrictions. Without prejudice. And sometimes, without reservation. No matter what happens.<br />&nbsp;</p><p>Because their thing is to make the naive seem mature, and the grown-up seem innocent. It&rsquo;s pure magic. What&rsquo;s more, it&rsquo;s a healthy exercise. How to laugh at yourself and reinvent yourself in an impossible way, all at the same time. And as proof, this taste of what will be that anticipated album: &ldquo;Animales&rdquo; is a perfect introduction. Dreamy and fragile, yet exultant. The most exact way they can be defined. It&rsquo;s a kind of confession. Because that&rsquo;s how they are. They don&rsquo;t see themselves like other people. They don&rsquo;t want to be like everyone else. And that&rsquo;s why they have built their own world. The one they put together around a small yellow wooden chair in a video that goes with this advance Digital Single. Like fish and turtles, snails and other kinds of animals. They feel closer to them than to humans. They look at them strangely, because they don&rsquo;t understand them. Or they do. But they don&rsquo;t want to be like them. Like we said, it&rsquo;s an invitation to their universe. Are you like that? Boring? Predictable? Are you following a plan?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Like the first chapter of their story &ldquo;Tralar&aacute;&rdquo;, &ldquo;Animales&rdquo; is a perfect epilogue, a portal to a ton of surprises that we are sure will not leave you untouched. Yes, of course, because that&rsquo;s what they are all about. Imagination and fantasy are their magic wand. Cynicism is their spell. The playful melodies are their magic potion. And what&rsquo;s the result? Sincerely, we don&rsquo;t think anyone knows. We are waiting. Impatiently.<br />&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/KTOqRzItj7k\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> GALAXY FINGERS: &quot;Let In Elijah EP&quot; https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/989/GALAXY FINGERS: &quot;Let In Elijah EP&quot; <p><strong>Alex&nbsp;</strong>and <strong>Clara</strong> met during a study program in Japan. When they got back home, they ended up on opposite coasts of the United States (one in Connecticut and the other in California), but they decided to start writing songs long-distance. It sounds like a tale, a story made up for the beginning of a novel, but it is true. This is the origin of GALAXY FINGERS, a group influenced by doowop, shoegaze, post-punk, folk music, and slowcore. They were captivated in equal parts by the COCTEAU TWINS, PRETEND, <strong>Laura Marling</strong> and THE MAGNETIC FIELDS, and the chemistry was so strong that over time they realized they needed to record the songs. <strong>Clara</strong> recorded the vocals from the east coast, and the rest was recorded on the west coast. And behind the control panel of these songs was <strong>Brad Lee</strong>, member of THE ALBUM LEAF. The result is their first EP, &ldquo;Let In Elijah EP&rdquo;.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&ldquo;I Need Therapy&rdquo;, with its vocal plays, places us close to SLOWDIVE and MOJAVE 3, though those lazy drums and rhythms evoke our beloved GALAXIE 500, with touches of the fifties in the melodies and arrangements that make the North American duo&rsquo;s openness to influences clear. &ldquo;Clap For Them&rdquo; slows the tempo down, diving head first into the most precious, delicate folk, where the connection between the two voices that seem like one shines, and where playful guitar arrangements surprise us, increasing the lysergic effect and adding intensity to a piece born to be crystal.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&ldquo;Hugs When You&rsquo;re Anxious&rdquo; leaves us dry. Slowcore makes its presence known. BEDHEAD. That martial, minimal drum that marks its strict rules. The voices come in. LOW. Every detail counts. Every gesture. Every sound. Emotions are running high. But we can&rsquo;t move. We must go on. The caresses make us tremble, but remember, we can&rsquo;t move. When the drum&rsquo;s ride comes in, it starts to set us free. We won&rsquo;t tell you the end. You have to find out for yourselves. Explosion? Containment?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&ldquo;Delivered&rdquo; is not included on the vinyl release, but it is on the digital version of the EP and the download that comes with the 7&rdquo; Single. On this song, <strong>Alex </strong>and <strong>Clara </strong>once again go deeper into slowcore. This time, we have CODEINE and their silences, their open cymbals, their knowingly strummed guitars. But this incarnation is nicer, more charming. We are again reminded of <strong>Rachel Goswell </strong>and <strong>Neil Halstead</strong>&rsquo;s bands. And those whistles. You just have to let yourself be swept away. Concentrate on the space, on the time, and let yourself go. Let the light come in through the cracks.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This is a great introduction. Tons of excitement. Without exaggerations. We are anxiously awaiting the Mini-LP announced for the beginning of 2019, because in these times of agitation and speed, options like GALAXY FINGERS are becoming less and less frequent. And strangely enough, at the same time they are very much a product of the times we are living, born and raised on distance, on space, and on time.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/4/00004474.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ll88QatIulk\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> LA CASA AZUL: “Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar” Single Digital https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/991/LA CASA AZUL: “Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar” Single Digital <p>It is clear that LA CASA AZUL&rsquo;s new album, &ldquo;La Gran Esfera&rdquo;, is going to mark a before and an after in <strong>Guille Milkyway</strong>&rsquo;s discography. It is a leap of faith in every sense. That puzzle that we were slowly putting together, and that has been revealing a composer who has taken a giant step forward, taken a suicidal turn. And nothing on this album is a better metaphor, to represent this new stage than this fourth advance, the fourth piece of the puzzle. &ldquo;Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar&rdquo; is a song about vital anxiety, about human stubbornness challenging scientific laws and even about our own stupidity. To this end, he uses the story of <strong>Franz Reichelt</strong>, an Austrian tailor who, in his obsession with overcoming the laws of gravity, jumped off of the Eiffel tower dressed in an impossible flying suit that he designed himself based on the drawings of <strong>Leonardo Da Vinci</strong>, to ultimately fall to his instant death, in a sadly famous moment that was filmed on February 4, 1912.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>But this raw and heartbreaking story clashes with the dreamy spirit of the music, somewhere between Italian disco and dream, between <strong>Moroder</strong> and <strong>Rozalla</strong>, between style and hit, between the merciless four-four time signature and the unforgettable melody. Yes, <strong>Guille</strong> once again turns on the stylistic mixer and plays with that stylistically slippery effect again, making music that excites you and lifts you up, while the lyrics take you closer to hell or set you free. Nuances, readings, a whole universe to delve into, on a song that is like a classic LA CASA AZUL sound but full of small arrangements, details, touches and stops that take it to the sound of the future.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>We are following him down the yellow brick road. We don&rsquo;t know very well where it leads. We don&rsquo;t believe in Oz, and we don&rsquo;t want to go back home. But we trust LA CASA AZUL and we are waiting impatiently to figure out what the goal is.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/YrgH6LyuO-8\" width=\"607\"><br /></iframe><br /><br />&nbsp;</p> CARBON POPPIES: “Rain On My Face” 7” Single [New Adventures In Pop] https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/988/CARBON POPPIES: “Rain On My Face” 7” Single [New Adventures In Pop] <p>We love to add to the number of bands and releases that form part of our &ldquo;New Adventures In Pop&rdquo; collection, which is dedicated to new groups, or groups with very few releases on the market. And we love to do this even more when it is, as is the case with this Single, for the US group CARBON POPPIES, a trio from Louisiana formed by <strong>Allison Bohl</strong>, <strong>Jonny Campos</strong> and <strong>Peter DeHart</strong>.<br /><br />In addition to forming part of other musical projects (BRASS BED, LOST BAYOU RAMBLERS and KIND COUSIN), CARBON POPPIES self-released a 6-song, 12&rdquo; vinyl EP in 2012 that was full of luminous pop leaning toward an sharp but precious sixties sound, with a touch of the garage of THE BATS or THE CLEAN, the taste for melodies of LOVIN&rsquo; SPOONFUL and the lysergic folk touch of WOODS. Indie-pop with class (and a Grammy, which was awarded to <strong>Jonny Campos</strong>, with his other group LOST BAYOU RAMBLERS) which is back on the current musical scene at the hand of Elefant Records with this &ldquo;Rain On My Face&rdquo;<br />&nbsp;<br />&ldquo;Rain On My Face&rdquo; is a special song, because it is a version of the British group SHAPE &amp; SIZES, who released their only Single on July 1, 1966, the B side of which is the title track of this Single and the cover that opens the release. It&rsquo;s a delicious example of psychedelic sixties pop with majestic choruses and evanescent reverb. Like THE CLIENTELE, but more agile and with brushstrokes of the sixties pop spirit of THE SCHOOL. &ldquo;You And I&rdquo;, adds a touch of electricity and reveals the ingredient that completes this magnificent formula, the taste for power-pop that adds an injection of necessary energy to the search for the perfect melody.<br />&nbsp;<br />The B side is the matter at hand now. &ldquo;How Long&rdquo; is pure sped-up indie-pop with echoes of the US and Australia; something like if you crossed YO LA TENGO with THE HUMMINGBIRDS. Highly danceable, highly hummable, and with fantastic production work that gives them the necessary dose of personality to make us pay attention to the exactness of CARBON POPPIES. And with &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll Meet You There&rdquo; we turn this hand into four of a kind. The luminosity of BEULAH. The pop sweetness of THE ESSEX GREEN. The bulls-eye of the choruses of THE MONKEES. And in the end that feeling that everything is sponsored by <strong>Brian Wilson</strong>.<br />&nbsp;<br />This is a complete unmissable, energetic, release that is coming out as a 300-copy numbered-limited-edition black 7&rdquo; vinyl. You have been warned.</p><p><img alt=\"\" src=\"https://elefant.com/uploads/foto/8/00004458.JPG\" style=\"width: 607px; height: 607px;\" /></p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/I9dT-z5nBfc\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/7n5C9hWZwyI\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p> THE LAST DETAIL: &quot;Fun Fair&quot; Advance Digital Single of the album The Last Detail https://elefant.com/{*noticia}/992/THE LAST DETAIL: &quot;Fun Fair&quot; Advance Digital Single of the album The Last Detail <p><strong>Erin Moran&nbsp;</strong>(A GIRL CALLED EDDY) and <strong>Mehdi Zannad</strong> (FUGU) have made an album together, which is going to be released on Elefant Records. The collaboration began to take shape when <strong>Zannad</strong> fell in love with <strong>Erin</strong>&rsquo;s exquisite voice on her debut album &ldquo;A Girl Called Eddy&rdquo; - produced with <strong>Richard Hawley</strong> and critically acclaimed in the press from Uncut to Mojo to Rolling Stone and The New York Times, while <strong>Erin</strong> was a fan of FUGU from the very first album - which she bought as a &lsquo;staff recommends&rsquo; at the old Kim&rsquo;s Video on Bleecker St. in New York City.<br /><br /><strong>Erin Moran&nbsp;</strong>was born in the same hospital as <strong>Frank Sinatra</strong> in Hoboken (New Jersey), raised on the &ldquo;Jersey Shore&rdquo;, but has called NYC her home for decades. When her debut album was released in 2004, it not only received critical acclaim from the press, but also acquired her some A-list fans: childhood hero&rsquo;s like <strong>Burt Bacharach</strong> and <strong>Gilbert O&rsquo;Sullivan</strong>, and artists as diverse as <strong>Robert Smith</strong> of THE CURE, to <strong>Tracey Thorn</strong>, <strong>Jane Birkin</strong>, and <strong>Nina Persson</strong>. She can be heard singing on records by <strong>Ron Sexsmith</strong>, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS and many more, but interestingly (as <strong>Mehdi</strong> first heard her) she is the voice of the girl in the duet with Philippe Katerine; indie hit &ldquo;Parlez-Vous Anglais Mr. Katerine?&rdquo; which also just so happens to be the opening song on the Elefant compilation &ldquo;Montecarlo&rdquo; (released in 1997 for the inauguration of the &ldquo;Colecci&oacute;n De Las Ciudades&rdquo;).<br />&nbsp;<br />Many have been wondering for years when A GIRL CALLED EDDY was going to release a second album&hellip; We finally have an answer to that question - at the beginning of 2019! (with a single before the end of this year) While waiting for that fans can calm their nerves with this very special project in collaboration with <strong>Mehdi</strong> <strong>Zannad</strong>.<br /><br /><strong>Mehdi</strong> is a pop-raconteur: not only an established musician, songwriter, producer, but an architectural drawing master as well. He&rsquo;s exhibited his work in gallery&rsquo;s all over France and has been teaching in some of Paris&rsquo; most esteemed institutions. He&rsquo;s released two marvelous albums as FUGU, singles shared with STEREOLAB and SAINT ETIENNE, co-wrote on the soundtrack for the film &ldquo;La France&rdquo; by <strong>Serge Bozon</strong> in 2007, arranged for <strong>Barbara Carlotti</strong> and TAHITI 80, produced APRIL MARCH, as well as releasing a delicious single on Elefant Records in 1998.<br /><br /><strong>Erin </strong>and <strong>Mehdi</strong> met up in London, Paris and Nancy to write, and along the way held recording sessions in the band TAHITI 80&rsquo;s Lab/recording studio in Rouen (where <strong>Zannad</strong> recorded his second full length, &ldquo;As Found&rdquo;). <strong>Erin</strong> wrote choruses that <strong>Mehdi</strong> turned into songs, and vice-versa, and both had brought some of their own already-written tunes on board when in 2014 Elefant Records showed up on the scene and offered them the possibility of making an album after hearing the first four songs from the project.<br />Sessions were booked, orchestra&rsquo;s were contracted! and the record started to take shape with the help of various members of <strong>Mehdi</strong>&rsquo;s core band of FUGU, as well as members of TAME IMPALA, SYD MATTERS and TAHITI 80.<br /><br />It was really hard for us to choose a song to shine as the advance single of such a special album, especially because the stylistic diversity is one of its strongest qualities, but we finally decided on &ldquo;Fun Fair&rdquo;, a delicious song full of romanticism, that evokes the delicacy of <strong>Fran&ccedil;oise Hardy,</strong> the emotional strength of <strong>Michel Legrand </strong>and the baroque elegance of absolutely exceptional arrangements. To do this, <strong>Erin</strong> shows off a contained but sober voice that is deep but warm, subtle but disarming, and which is made clear in the video recorded by <strong>Lucie </strong>(film director)and&nbsp;<strong>Laurent</strong> (musician in the Parisian group DORIAN PIMPERNEL). In the video, the actress <strong>Milo Mcmullen</strong> plays <strong>Erin</strong>, with an impassive look, lost in the horizon, and she suddenly turns, a little wink at the camera, and everything makes sense, everything burns unrepentantly.<br /><br />But this is just the beginning of a great album by THE LAST DETAIL. It is an album destined to be a modern classic that we cannot wait for you to finally hear in its entirety. For now, we give you the magnificent &ldquo;Fun Fair&rdquo;.<br />&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allow=\"autoplay; encrypted-media\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/IAaabyVyahg\" width=\"607\"></iframe></p>
