His new album, Plaisirs Américains, has been our soundtrack for the summer (it’s title track being on the best new tracks list of Pitchfork and picked by Chanel for the catwalk), we are very happy to announce that canadian artist Bernardino Femminielli now joins the Tippex family for his bookings in Europe. Aside from his music, Bernardino is known for his work at the gallery/ restaurant Bethlehem XXX in Montreal and the crazy video show he did there called ‘Chaudtime’.
On stage, the hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur is joined by musicians from Essaie Pas and Bataille Solaire. More than typical concerts his shows are very intense performances with a lot of attention to details and scenography. His character is a synthesis of mysticism, danger and pleasure; a detached crooner deep within a distopian discotheque. Narrating in Spanish and French, from brutal italo-disco to heavy cosmic drone and mutant industrial, his sonic ventures reflect his chosen environments. In addition to his main project, he has composed music under Femminielli Noir (w/ Jesse Osborne-Lanthier) and is a long time collaborator of Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches). He has released a wide array of albums on tape (Hobo Cult, Los Discos Enfantasmes) and vinyl (Mind, Desire, Clandestine) and has performed at events and festivals around the world.
