A stateless trio (Japan, UK, Sweden), Tristesse Contemporaine chose Paris as their battleground. The sound of their first album, produced by Pilooski (Discodeine) in 2012, was immediately praised among the music scene and critics -- raw and minimal, catchy yet mesmerizing, both poppy and spleen-heavy. Equally inspired by the ghosts of shoegaze, krautrock and Madchester, they aimed to write the soundtrack of an era that got lost into the nights.
Sebastien Tellier is an exceptional, highly personnal and intimate artist echoing such other one-offs as Robert Wyatt, Syd Barett or Serge Gainsbourg. An individual, an indomitable post mortal, a Parisian poet and a wild man of many, many talents.
