ESCOBAR "Bird of Prey" LP BR216

If one had to provide a simplified description of Escobar’s new album, Bird of Prey, it would be summed up as a barrage of electrified grunge trash rock ‘n roll, which serves only to excite. This is more than obvious after checking out the opening track, ‘You Must Get Stoned.’ It sets the tone for Bird of Prey by inviting the listener to a sound that is profusely upbeat, wild and frenetic.
This is a style that remains largely consistent throughout the album, as Escobar tends to lean toward the edgier elements of garage-like stoner rock ‘n roll, with obvious indications toward grungy and greasy sounds. It’s something that boasts a certain familiarity and even borders on addictive.



Versatil Monster

Coming from the abundant Rennes scene (France), Versatil Monster mixes garage spirit with a touch of pop, all sprinkled with blues and soul influences. And groove. Sometimes languid, sometimes leaping, groove, always. Even if they're only two, Versatil Monster never hide behind the excuse of deprivation. Their sound fills the space in any circumstances, the audacious guitar effects, voices, the subtleties of the drums, always in sight to offer as much, if not more, that training classic rock'n'roll.

Recorded and mixing by Arthur Paichereau and Stephane Bouvier.
Mastered by Loki Lockwood at Creepy Hollow.
Co-released with Azbin Records.

HEAD ON 'Woman On A Wall' gatefold LP / digipack CD BR196

With a band name assumed as a double tribute to Fatih Akin's punch movie as well as to the no less striking Stooges' song, Head On spreads its swampy taut garage rock across the bayou of the prolific and talented brittany scene since 2009.
The band delivers its 3rd album, ‘Woman On A Wall’. Recorded live in 4 days by Pete Ross, Head On refines its sound with pianos, keyboards, bass clarinet… without forgetting the guitars, obviously full of fuzz and wah-wah!
Somewhere between the garage-punk emergency of the Oblivians and the countryish swamp rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon.

Kaviar Special
12" LP vinyl / Shipping

Kaviar Special it's an album hailed by the press in 2013, an EP in the summer of 2015 and an avalanche of live performances.
Since their first album, the quartet from Rennes (France) has gone upmarket: 4 European tours, a notable performance at Rennes Transmusicales allowed the group to settle permanently as one of the top of the list of the increasingly dynamic French rock Garage scene.
Very wisely illustrated by Belgian Elzo Durt, this new album simply titled #2 and recorded in Cocoon studio in Rennes turned a corner by taking a richer and more controlled production. The group reveals more varied influences and makes a large gap between unbridled pop, nervous garage rock and brutal dark psychedelia. Fuzz invasion, surf guitars, reverberated and danceable mid-tempo tunes, the perfect mix!

WEIRD OMEN 'A Breakfast Before Chaos With' LP / CD BR204

Beast Records is proud to co-produce this new Weird Omen album with Get Hip Recordings! Weird Omen is one of the wildest French garage-psych-rock trio lost somewhere between the Cramps and the Kinks spitting a unique blend of primitive garage full of reverb and fuzz.
Weird as strange. Strange, as their universe borrows just as much from a world of the crazy 50′s galaxy as from the British pop craze. Strange, as their line up is composed of guitar, saxophone, drums and three vocals.
Omen as the forerunner. The forerunner of trance garage with these three musicians stemming from diverse and recognized bands (King Khan & the Shrines, Bee Dee Kay & the Roller Coaster, Lost Communists, Limiñanas, We Are Not Indians, Escobar, Anomalys…).

STOP II 'From Rust To Dust' LP
STOP II 'From Rust To Dust' LP BR205

STOP II is willingly a part of the last twenty years’s country and blues music.
Their sound is wild, lo-fi and filthy.
This french duet coming from Bordeaux secretes adulterated tunes in all simplicity, with a plowing tractor’s efficiency and accuracy. The final result smells like hops, red hot embers and dirty oil marks.

STOP II s’inscrit volontiers dans le revival de la musique country et blues de ces vingt dernières années.
Leur son est sauvage, lo-fi et crasseux, dans la lignée de Doo Rag ou encore Scott H. Biram.
Le duo bordelais distille en toute simplicité une musique frelatée, avec l'efficacité et la précision d'un tracteur en plein labour. Le résultat obtenu fleure bon le houblon, la braise incandescente et les taches de cambouis.

DIRTY DEEP 'What's Flowin' In My Veins' LP/CD
DIRTY DEEP 'What's Flowin' In My Veins' LP/CD BR206

Initially a one man band from France, Dirty Deep is now a power blues trio in the same vein than Left Lane Cruiser and Black Diamond Heavies.
“What’s Flowin’ In My Veins” is a gritty release that should ideally be heard in company, with a stack of beers and smokes close to hand – it’s just that sort of record. Simple and to the point, Dirty Deep gets at the spirit of rock and roll and makes us face the terrors of a forgotten world.

Moreover some covers of revisited classics from the Delta, "Electrically Recorded" adds some nice original pieces of trashy folk. It also includes outstanding contributions, like Martin Dupras (Scat Rag Boosters) on harmonica and Indian Shruti. Recorded by Patrick Bourbonnais and Peperino Studio, mixed by Émile Beaudin and David Leclerc wallet, this disc is already essential for any good garage addict.
