Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones - Parole de Navarre

Denovali Records, 2007

Weird name for a band so slow and so dark. If you like Bohren und der Club of Gore...

"Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones are the quartet made of musicians covering a wide variety of musical styles (they are former members of Tank, Osaka, TF and ex-groove combo Loupous) creates a music that mixes electronic (samples, cuts, sound treatments) and acoustic (guitars, saxophone, trumpet). They play moody ballads that sounds as if they come out from one of David Lynch’s movies. Like in the Hollywood master of bizarre’s pieces, there is something like a dark and poisonous colour broken by red thunderlights and blue cigarette smoke. Parole de Navarre is an invitation for opening the red curtain of this Dark Jazz cabaret made of shimmering and whirling walls." -
