From the naive Kiki to the 25 minutes of the epic Mentally Strong, Morally Weak, Appalache explodes his own musical boundaries. If there’s still the typical Julien Magot’s post-blues delicacy (Toledo, Oh, Marble State Fair), the parisian one-man band seems liberated from his own chains, exploring a broad spectrum of new tones. You can start to list the different genres of this album doped, garage, shoegaze, kraut, postrock, folk, experimental… until you find it boring and useless. Like a smile can express a range of emotions, Sourire is a kaleidoscopic album with many sides & reflects.
music written, recorded, mixed and mastered by Julien Magot in Paris (autumn 2012) / layout by Romain Barbot, cover by Douanier Rousseau
