Gilroy Mere ~ Over the Tracks

This is the sort of release that the U.K. needs right now ~ a gentle reminder of quiet pleasures.  In 2017, Gilroy Mere paid tribute to The Green Line of double decker buses; this year, he returns to honor dismantled railway stations.  Over

Philippe Requena presents ‘Venant le jour’ [mix]

Chapelier Fou ~ Méridiens

Is it possible that Chapelier Fou (Louis Warynski) is getting even more ebullient and clubworthy?  From the sound of Méridiens, this seems to be the case.  While prior albums tag-teamed on timbres, the new set stays upbeat all the way, with nary a pause
