Serge Gainsbourg & Michel Colombier – Le Pacha OST LP

OFFICIAL RSD 2018 release. Wewantsounds present the first ever vinyl reissue of Serge Gainsbourg’s cult score for the 1968 French film Le Pacha. These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg at the height of his ’60s cool when he was briefly going out with Brigitte Bardot and the couple was on the verge of recording the infamous first version of “Je T’aime… Moi Non Plus” (1969). All the tracks here are arranged by famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg’s best songs (“Bonnie & Clyde” and “Harley Davidson”) and had also arranged Pierre Henry’s classic Psyche-Rock around the same time — note the similarity between Psyche-Rock and “Un Noel 67” from this set. Many of these nuggets blend ’60s pop and psychedelia — pure undiluted Gainsbourg with his classic psyche-pop sound of the late ’60s. The original soundtrack features his classic “Requiem Pour Un Con” together with a previously unreleased instrumental mix, along with two bonus tracks from William Klein’s 1968 film Mister Freedom. Digitally remastered from the original tapes, this is the first time the full soundtrack is released on vinyl in its entirety. Comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve featuring artwork by the famous French Alternative Movie Poster designer Maxime Pecourt. Includes liner notes with the full lineup and an interview of bass player Francis Darizcuren.

Helado Negro ‎– Private Energy LP

Private Energy is the fifth album from Roberto Carlos Lange a.k.a. Helado Negro. Written and produced by Lange, Private Energy is an interpersonal communication of sounds about his surroundings past, present, and future. In fourteen tracks, Private Energy coalesces into a truly established musical voice.

For the past thirteen years, Lange has created music under a variety of monikers that have allowed him to express and explore experimentation in sound, performance, and music. When he moved to New York City in the mid-2000s, Lange became Helado Negro. It was here where Lange began to sing for the first time — at age 28. The development of his voice is chronicled through each Helado Negro release, an evolving collection of delicate pop songs punctuated by his singular style of singing in both English and Spanish.

Private Energy, which follows 2013’s Invisible Life and 2014’s tour de force Double Youth, continues the work Lange has done as an artist, culminating in the most captivating artistic statement of his career. The music draws from his expansive knowledge of sampling, sound synthesis, recording and history of references, and the album was created as a performance piece in tandem with his Tinsel Mammal dancers. Present at each Helado Negro show, the Tinsel Mammal dancers, costumed head-to-toe in silver strands, are a visual representation of sound and a sensual gateway to profoundly personal lyrics. The Tinsel Mammals are not representative of any human form. They work as a shimmering objects that represent the ideas of genderless and raceless beings and Private Energy’s themes of self-love, pride, and the embrace of constant change.

Moses Sumney ‎– Aromanticism LP

Since emerging onto the scene in 2014, Moses Sumney has ridden a wave of word-of-mouth praise, hushed recordings, and dynamic live performances. It’s an organic, patient ascent all too rare in today’s musical climate. In a voice both mellifluous and haunting, Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes, like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems. His vocals narrate a personal journey through universal loneliness atop otherworldly compositional backdrops.

Following the self-release of his debut cassette EP, Mid-City Island, and 2015’s 7″, Seeds/Pleas, Sumney has performed around the world alongside forebears like David Byrne, Karen O, Sufjan Stevens, Solange, James Blake and more. With his 2016 Lamentations EP, The California and Ghana-raised troubadour widened the spectrum of his heretofore “bedroom” music, incorporating songs that feature more elaborate production and evocative songwriting. Now his inspired ascent continues.

His proper debut album, Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape. It seeks to interrogate the social constructions around romance. The debut will include the devastating, billowing synths of “Doomed,” which in a way serves as the album’s thesis statement, as well as new versions of standouts “Lonely World” and “Plastic.” It’s a deliberate, jaw-dropping statement that can leave you both enlightened and empty.
