La Patère Rose, La Patère Rose [REVIEW]

First of all let’s put aside critics looking to compare La Patère Rose with Couer de Pirates… Yes there’s a young French piano tattoo girl with a doll voice and a sexual charisma making you bite your lips with every moaning but La Patère Rose s/t album (Grosse Boite/Dare To Care Records) is also a sound voyage with 2 of Mister Valaires ( QC’s DJ multi-instrumental dance funk makers.

Here we are confronted to an Alice of Wonderland sensual driven a complex mechanical album with a singer that remind us of Bridget Bardo but with the power vocals of Yeah Yeah surrounded by a sound landscape of fuzzy-funk-electro-soft-minimal-mellow-kind hearted-Soul  providing great background for a lazy afternoon.. The papier-mâché cover describes well this album.

Only problem with this albums is the singer: is her little girls fantasy booklet taste the same without Mister Valaires input? Or will it fade away as youth? Only time will tell…

Listen to Pace Maker


I’ve had the chance to fall in love with this album a month prior to its release. Like many  fans the first listen paralyses you with a “what happen to Malajube?” no poppy smiling songs that makes you want to hug teddy bears or feelings of unicorn lovable theme rhythms with your own portable rainbow and moonshine liquor.

From the start, a dark sonic frenzy sink his teeth with Ursuline a ravaging song about Quebec’s catholic soul control… you can feel the cold wind hitting your skin and opening every inch of  your snow memory wonderland becoming  a beautiful winter song to drive into the summer.

Mapped carefully to bring you closer to sonic ecstasy, Labyrinthes (Dare To Care Records) twist and turn with a booming beauty covering your body with a lusty cover. Harmonized by 4 exploring music hungry vikings and taking us with them to breathtaking meadows pastured by layers of hypnotising resonance.; its an album to listen and re-listen to discover its perpetual secrets whispered in every note.
