I am stoked to announce that the Mihai Edrsich Un Jour Sans Lendemain LP is finally available again !
500 copies pressed on colored vinyl, comes with a 12 pages booklet with an interview of the band members from 2017, pictures and lyrics, reproductions of flyers and a DL code. A true labor of love !
Repressed for the first time of their full length released on Purepainsugar in 2005…
For those who are not familiar with the band, Mihai Edrisch was like a comet in the sky… shortlived but full of light. Active in the early 2000s, in a time when bands like Amanda Woodward, Daïtro, Belle Epoque, Gantz, Hyacinth, Sed Non Satiata & co were releasing records and touring, [b]Mihai Edrisch[/b] as well had that (what is trademarked now as) ‘french screamo’ touch but they pushed the intensity, complexity and depth further than their peers. Driven by emotional high-ends guitars, heavy drums, aerial bass lines and desperate vocals, that album is a true masterpiece for the genre and it was time to bring it under the light once again.
Featuring members of Celeste, Daïtro, Baton Rouge, Lost Boys, Pinku Saido & more
The demo from the new band Contractions is out now ! Contractions is a new band from Lyon & Besançon playing a kind of mix of indie and 60s garage and if you enjoy Greg Cartwright’s bands such as Reigning Sound or Compulsive Gamblers, Kevin Morby’s ones and 60s UK bands well, maybe you should like it.
The band is comprised of your humble servant singing and playing guitar, as well as Buanx who plays in great bands such The Irradiates, Red Gloves and Hawaii Samurai and Lopin who also plays in the terrific Whoresnation, in case you already saw / met them… The band started with Camille, who sings and plays bass on the demo but she left and is now replaced by Lopin.
Also, it is announced for a couple years now but it will soon become true : the MIHAI EDRISCH ‘un jour sans lendemain’ LP repress is at the pressing plant at the moment and it should be out in a month or so.

Meanwhile, I am also working on the repress of ‘un Jour Sans Lendemain’ of Mihai Edrisch to have it out in september ! FINALLY !
hey friends, today is the release day of the Kindling‘s No Generation EP. A quick reminder for those who didn’t know yet : Kindling (from Western Massachussetts in the USA) plays the shoegaze you’ve always dreamt of : dynamically layered monolith of towering guitar noise & wistfully hazy vocals, balancing deafening heaviness with a lightness and beauty; a pop sensibility rarely found when the volume and attack ends up this far in the red.
This is an exclusive vinyl release for Europe only, brought to you in collaboration with the amazing Adagio830 once again ! Having members who played in bands such as Ampere,Landing, Ritual Mess or Foreign Objects, you know you’re in good hands…
You can also now stream another song from the EP on echocanyonrecords.bandcamp.com, purchase your copy there as well, or on the mailorder section right here as usual is you want to get some other releases. A tape version is also released in the US on Old Frame Records ! 500 copies pressed on solid pink due due to a lucky mistake from the pressing plant… don’t miss it !!
the Monplaisir demo 12″ is out now. Get your copy while it’s available ! 300 copies pressed on black vinyl, with cardboard jacket with a 2 colors screened obi wrapped all around. Have a look, they’re beautiful !
Kindling 12″ No Generation is up for preorder !
For some reasons, streaming is delayed but it is coming soon. But trust us, you can’t miss that one ! Another great coreleased with my buddy Robert / Adagio 830 in Berlin.
Let’s remind you that this is an EXCLUSIVE 12″ release for Europe… well, we will of course ship worldwide but still…
Some words about the 12″ : Kindling is comprised of my good buddies Stephen and Andy who also play in WMass hardcore outfit Ampere, as well as Gretschen (who plays guitar and sings) and Andrew, who plays bass. I can tell you these people have the most solid musical knowledge I know… While it would be easy to compare them to My Bloody Valentine, a closer listen will also led you to find evident traces of Superchunk guitar riffs, Teenage Fanclub and Jesus & Mary Chain melodies to serve a very personnal and unique sound…
They blur they dreamy melodies into a wall of a massive fuzz sounds with a a pop sensibility rarely found when the volume and attack ends up this far in the red.
While they spent a week at Sonelab in rural Easthampton, MA with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, Sonic Youth, etc.) to record their first full length Galaxies for the amazing No Idea Records in Florida, they cut 6 extra songs for this euro-only release ! Adagio 830 and Echo Canyon team up one more timeto bring you this amazing EP for you !
This piece of plastic is the test pressing of the next Echo Canyon release and it sounds absolutely fantastic. Kindling ‘no generation’ 12″ coreleased with adagio830 here in Europe and released on tape on oldflamerecords in the US.
You will soon be able to preorder this gem to get a hand on a beautiful colored vinyl. Put some colors in your darkness like my buddy Seb Radix used to say used to say.
More infos sooooon !
The next release will be the pressing on 12″ of the Monplaisir demo… Monplaisir is a new local band featuring talented and super nice people such as Flo who also plays guitar in Sport. The vinyl mastering has just been done by my dear buddy Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios and I will send it to the plant in the next couple of days.
Last but not least… I’ve been frequently asked about it but yes, I will repress Un Jour Sans Lendemain from Mihai Edrisch on LP next year. As soon as Kindling and Monplaisir 12″es will be out, this will be my next big project. I want to do something great, to bring justice to this mindblowing release, that I will repress on LP for the first time since 2005 ! For those who never heard about them, Mihai Edrisch was a shortlived but truly unique band playing the most desperate and intense music the DIY scene in Lyon had ever known to this day. The band was made of an incredible lineup with Johan on vocals (who now sings and plays bass in Celeste), Benoit on drums (who also played drums in Daïtro, Baton Rouge and Ancre), Rémi (who stoped to play music after the band stoped but was by far one of the most unique guitar player I have ever seen) and Flo playing bass, who then played bass or guitar in numerous beloved local punk bands such as The Lost Boys, Lexomyl, Telecommande, Defaite and Pinku Saïdo.
