Bernardino Femminielli on board w. Tippex for Europe

webBFHis 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.

promo Pic Brian Case




















We are super happy to welcome Brian Case (Disappears, Bambi Kino Duo, 90 day Men..) as part of our roster. Brian has just released his debut solo album, Tense Nature (hands in the dark record), which sees him focus his work on space, minimalism and repetition. The songs are all built around the idea of tape loops or lock grooves, working with snippets and phrases of sound. Brian sampled guitar or small drum loops before cutting them randomly. The sequences and their imperfect nature were then reworked into a sort of momentum, built using Case’s own perception of the new fragments. The result of his experiment is 12 primarily electronic, abstract, visceral, ambient tracks. They depict a dark environment, an uncanny landscape with its own contained world. Brian will do his first euro tour in November supporting Suuns and will be back early 2017. listen on Bandcamp / Video of 7D /

Best albums 2016 list / halftime report – Uncut

“…opiated reverberation that lands in dreamtime…”The Wire

“Effectively, it’s both concrete dub and electro-acoustic in process, working in a long tradition of experimental artists extrapolating unheimlich geists from tape recordings that stretches from Lee Perry thru Dome and This Heat to Basic Channel and Deathprod.” Boomkat

“Tense Nature is a true ‘ambient’ album, as described, though it can be a mesmerizing thing to truly contemplate.” Decoder Magazine

“Tense Nature de Brian Case est une splendeur monolithique faite d’argile et de ruines.”The Drone

“L’ensemble, pour étrange qu’il soit au premier abord, n’en dégage pas moins un charme irrésistible sur le long terme, à la manière du non-rock de This Heat, des premiers albums solos de Lee Ranaldo, ou des trucs les plus fous de Pere Ubu.” – New Noise

“Fascinating!… it is an album whose intelligence and subtly become more apparent the more time you invest in it.”Optical Sounds Fanzine

“In many ways, the music here is a logical extension of the last few DISAPPEARS albums as the band has experimented more & more with stark, minimalist song structures. Case fully realizes that concept here with these cold, naked post-industrial, minimal techno experiments that would work well as mini-soundtracks for Brothers Quay or Stan Brakhage films. RECOMMENDED.”Reckless Records

Hi Folks!

















NOTS just released a new single ‘Entertain Me’ that you can listen to it HERE.

Natalie Hoffman of Nots shared some background on the track:

“Entertain Me” is a song in a constant state of movement and deterioration around one central, repeating part. No two live versions of it sound the same. Drawing influences from experimental no wave, postpunk, and psychedelic music, “Entertain Me” takes its cues from the edges of genres, where one begins to blend into another, and nothing is easily classified. The lyrics reflect the cyclical, distorted nature of the song, addressing different facets of the grotesque horror show going on in American politics and how they are portrayed- the rise of Trump, the reality-TV-like nature of American news, the almost-forced compliance of the viewer, and the for-profit-constructed “right” of the viewer, the consumer, to require constant entertainment in order to participate, and to live.”

new album cosmetic will be out on Sept. 9. on Goner and Heavenly Recordings.

New York, New York ! Métropole en perpétuelle effervescence, d’une incroyable vitalité artistique, New York se caractérise en particulier par sa foisonnante richesse musicale, où les initiatives expérimentales croisent les formes pop et où tous les décloisonnements sont autorisés. Dans l’esprit de The Kitchen comme d’autres clubs new-yorkais où Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Philip Glass et Arto Lindsay du groupe DNA pouvaient se croiser, cette nouvelle Nuit 104 programmée par Julie Tippex propose un événement où figures historiques comme contemporaines s’entrelacent, qu’elles viennent de la culture pop, rock, hip hop comme de la musique contemporaine ou expérimentale, proposant un panorama en performances et projections des années 50 à aujourd’hui.

avec :
 Tyondai Braxton (solo | fondateur de Battles)
 Rhys Chatham (création)
 Lee Ranaldo & Leah Singer (installation, lectures, performances)
 Dälek (live)

CIVIL CIVIC_throat neg

FINALLY ! The long awaited sophomore effort from these two exiled Melbournian geniuses is in the bag and will be released in October 2016. All their trade-mark sounds are firmly in place, that weird mix of teeth-grinding intensity, pop triumphalism and party-on abandon which makes them a truly one-of-a-kind act. But this record is an epic, wide-screen, Hi-Fi update of the CIVIL CIVIC sound. A “serious escalation of the conflict”, you could say. It’s been a long time since they released their debut album RULES in October 2011, garnering yet more praise from both the music press and audience and we just can’t wait to see them back on stage !

They are playing a bunch of shows in Belgium, France and Switzerland this Spring :

12 May 2016 BE Leuven Kater Blauwe
13 May 2016 FR Nantes Wine Nat White Heat
27 May 2016 CH Zurich Lauter Festival
28 May 2016 CH Leysin Hautes Fréquences Festival
09 Jun 2016 FR Paris Mind Your Head / Petit Bain w/ Prohibition

The album was recorded in New York City and mixed there and  in Barcelona and has contributions from The Dust (Steve Shelley, Alan Licht, Tim Luntzel), Nels Cline, Sharon Van Etten, Kid Millions and others.

As a Parisian (and this is probably the first time I call myself a Parisian although I have been living here for 30 years) I’m afraid the sad things outnumber the happy ones this year.

Here is what made my year though:

Flavien Berger: “Léviathan
Thurston Moore: “The Best Day
Wand: “Golem
Jonathan Fitoussi et Clemens Hourrière: “Five Steps
Moxham & Halliday: “A know about Thing

One song: Girl Band “Why they hide their bodies under my garage
which reminds me of that old and amazing song by XTC “Complicated Game

Video: Sequences
This incredible footage of an 1980 show of Young Marble Giants


Higlights: shooting a film with Jeff Mills in le Musée du Louvre on a closing day (oh the silence there…); the Barbican going crazy with Jeff’s symphonic version of “The Bells”; Young Marble Giants after-shows: a hotel room in Marseille with a couple of friends after Mimi festival and a month later on the Southbank Center rooftop featuring Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt; meeting Leee John from Imagination at Fête de la Musique!




A couple of tracks and artists that I have been listening a lot this year:
all songs of “Cap Waller” by Bertrand Belin
“Halcyion Days” taken from Disappears great “Irreal” Record
Bonny –  Prefab Sprout
Goodnight Vienna – LFO
Mit Dir – Robert Görl
Fenster – Samson’s Theme
Low – David Bowie
“this is Nots” by NOTS
“Emocean” by Fenster

A couple of thing I enjoyed to do: producing the last Album of band Fenster “Emocean”, being on tour with NOTS and Disappears in Europe, attending Monkey Week Festival and staying a couple of more days in Cadiz – Spain and winning in an official game against the worldchampion table foosball player 🙂
