Aguirre Records / Belgium / 2020
Something has been brewing in France in recent years. Underground record shops, small venues, labels and young musicians create a new vibe in various parts of the country.
Jean-Marie Mercimek is one of those projects coming out of this new scene. The duo of Marion Molle and Ronan Riou revisits french lo-fi synth pop in a fairytale-like way, utilising their collection of rare automatic casio keyboards, frequency modulation chanson and tape collages towards a multilayered comic book journey in form of a concert. As if there was an animated wax brush painted cartoon version of Elli & Jacno.
