I hope everyone is doing fine during these shitty times.
I have 2 upcoming records that are currently at the pressing plant right now, they will be available in january but you can preorder them now if you want to. First is Daitro‘s Laisser Vivre Les Squelettes LP repress, housed in a wonderful gatefold jacket for the first time, with an enveloppe comprised of reproduction of original flyers, inserts and lyrics… the same as the repress in 2017 actually, but in a gatefold jacket.
Next is a 12″ split between Contractions and The Horsebites ! After their well received first LPs, both The Horsebites (the best and most australian indie garage band in Lyon) and Contractions are back together for an exclusive split 12″ !
Records will be on clear vinyl with a 2 color screenprint on side B. And as you probably noticed, the whole thing has been illustrated by Rick Froberg himself and it will look AWESOME !
I am stoked to announce you that the next Echo Canyon release is almost there and it’s a very special one : a live cassette from french punx favorite Zone Infinie, recorded in our beloved Grrrnd Zero by Bruno Germain in january 2020 ! This was a benefit show for the collective Justice & Verite for Mehdi : a collective asking for the truth about Mehdi’s death, killed after a car chase by the police on december 10th 2016 in Vénissieux. And more generally against police violences (which is more than never an up-to-date topic to be well aware of).
Back to the music, this release was decided before the pandemic, before punk shows became memories and this live recording is an awesome document for our inspiring local scene that cannot be missed. Zone Infinie (for those who don’t know them yet) is one of the best example of this new wave of french punk with unique vocals, stellar lyrics and heartfelt music. Some people find some Camera Silens inspiration, which is not too far from being true.
Judge by yourself on the link below where you can stream 2 songs (one is unreleased !).
Hey friends, I will help distribute our friends Savak’s super awesome 4th LP called Rotting Teeth In The Horse’s Mouth, out on Ernest Jenning Record Co.
If you’re not familiar with them yet, they play a well inspired indie post punk, with unbeatable hooks and great melodies. Some Devo, Wire or Mission Of Burma touches in it as well for your own pleasure.
They also played in Obits, Holy Fuck and The Cops for the connections… really amazing band, I recommend you to check them out !
I am locked in at home since march 17th and couldn’t ship any foreign parcels yet. They’re prepared and ready to go though but I couldn’t go to the post office before being locked in and I have no access to them.
This will stay like this until at least may 11th.
Sorry about that but I guess you guys will all understand that I can’t really do more for the moment to send your orders out
A quick update about Daïtro Y LP preorders shipments. All the orders for France shipped on tuesday. Bigger parcels for distros / mailorders in Japan and other overseas places shipped on Tuesday as well. I’m still hesitating to send this last batch of preorders for people living in the USA / Canada / South America / Australia / New Zealand and other EU countries (I didn’t ship anything to Italy yet), I need to get some guarantees that packages won’t be sent back to me because of all the limitations in the transports or other limitations due to the coronavirus. So I / you will have to wait a little bit more to have them shipped out, sorry about that but I’m sure you’ll all understand
You can now preorder the repress of the last LP from French emorockers Daïtro called « Y », originally released in 2009. This repress is another labor of love since it is housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket, with an enveloppe comprising reproductions of show flyers, a mini poster of their last tour in 2008, a DL code and last but not least a booklet with notes about the recording and the lyrics. Also, first orders will get a beautiful transparent black colored vinyl.
Last but not least, one copy in the entire pressing has a winning coupon ! Thanks to this coupon, you will be able to get an original copy of the Daïtro / Sed Non Satiata split 12″ released in 2007 and never repressed and also 3 other records of your choice from the label. For Free !! Hope you’ll be the lucky winner
Also, I made special bundles with the last releases at a very cheap price so go and check them out on the mailorder page . With this bundle, you could get some of the last releases and you’ll get a surprise LP from the back catalogue of the label (either a Longings LP, Kindling 12″, Torino / Zero Gain split 12″ or Sed Non Satiata / Carrion Springs split 12″ that I will pick randomly. Well, if there is one among the 4 listed you really want to have, just let me know in the comment of your order).

I’m stoked to announce that the FAUX DEPART ‘vie ordinaire’ LP is out now. Do yourself a favor and go and check them out. French punk rock at its best, with awesome hooks and great melodies. I’m in love with this one ! Get your copy now on the mailorder page
I am more than stoked to announce you a new release for the end of the month, it is the 2nd LP from local punk favorites Faux Départ ! If you never heard of them, they play some tight punk rock with some great LoFi 80s UK / Australian indie touches. It’s tight, it’s melodic and totally addictive. They’ve been the best example of what a punk-band-from-lyon can be at his best but with this new release, we reached a new point of awesomeness. And the guys have a VERY solid punk culture, they do awesome radio shows here and also do
To tell you the whole story, I know them for years and they asked me to work on the artwork with my buddy Benjamin Pic. They sent me an advanced mix to listen to and it was so good that I had to put it out.
It eventually ended in a great corelease with Destructure, Les Chœurs de L’Ennui, Collila, Tocsin and Mutant Records. 500 pressed on black vinyl, the records come with a lyric sheet.

Also, the other news is that a repress of Daïtro‘s second LP, Y is on the works. It will be a « deluxe » repress, housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with a booklet, reproduction of flyers and a small tour poster. There will be some limited colored vinyl as well.
Preorders should be up by the end of the month, expect a release in march.
More about it soon !
Preorders are up for Contractions LP « demain est annulé ». All preorders will ship on sept. 23rd with band goodies.
Also, go on the mailorder page to check all the great bundles with demo tapes and shirts etc.
This record is a co-release between Adagio 830 and Purepainsugar but I’m in charge of the distribution of Purepainsugar copies.
About the record, we could say that making this LP was a HUGE work… A lot of time was spent with Bruno Germain recording / arranging / mixing it. Then it was sent to Mikey Young to get a top vinyl mastering and it sounds G-R-E-A-T ! Expect some good indie-punk-garage vibes, some 12 strings guitar licks, sometimes melodic bass lines, acoustic guitar overdubs, electric guitar riffs with a few solos and a lot of phaser pedals, maracas and tambourines arrangements, pounding drum patterns and last but not least melodic vocals AS MUCH IN TUNE AS I CAN DO (and also for the first time, Macst sweet backing vocals).
