Cheers to the Barfly Drummers!

By V

After releasing 2 LPs as Two Left Ears as well as one EP as himself, Extra Pekoe along with the Barfly Drummers prepare a double LP for this very end of the year.

A first eponymic LP is to be released on October the 14th:


The Barfly Drummers is a five-headed band led by Gregory Lodé (DRUMS) / Cedric Ben’Houz (DRUMS) / René Arnault (DRUMS) / Extra Pekoe (BEATS) / Fanch Bourhis (BEATBOX)

« The Barfly Drummers » LP is a mix of sci-fi, cinematographic 9-tracks organic electronica orchestrated by the most cinema enthusiastics of the band. Already one track can be listened on their bandcamp:


Along with this release « Air Baloons also rise » will take the plunge around this year’s end. This project led this time by Extra Pekoe and the Barfly Drummers will count no fewer than 17 tracks.

here’s a taste of it

The five men behind this double-LP project will gather in one single live project, from which you’ll hear some news around spring 2014!

Laybell is proud and happy to welcome the Barfly Drummers into the collective.
Prepare to get some of the most exciting records we’ve ever released!

Last but not least, you can already PRE-ORDER both albums, along with some Laybell goodies on Kiss Kiss Bank Bank.

Ce n’est qu’un Au Revoir

By V

After releasing no fewer than 3 EPs and 1 LP on Laybell, Shiko Shiko has now joined the great record label Platinum Records (Rubin Steiner, Rich Aucoin, Arch Woodman, Motorpsycho, Presidentchirac, The Delano Orchestra + many many more artists)

Shiko Shiko have been part of Laybell since its very beginning, and will always be part of it as members of the collective, but will release their work only on Platinum from now on. Still, they keep on touring from time to time with Benoît & Olivier from Luminocolor, offering even more mad performances

Yet, joining Platinum Records offers Shiko Shiko more room to spread their pterodactyl wings and thus continue their musical journey: they are now working on a second LP!

We wish them all the best and much success to the Platinum team!

If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to follow them closely on and get a chance to live amazing explosions in your mind by checking !

As end credits, lets listen one more time to all the great stuff they have released on Laybell:

Tame Impala – Mind Mischief

By Flashbacker

Tame Impala is definitively entering my selection of the bands of which you need to check every single music video they’re releasing. Their new one for the track ‘Mind Mischief’ is just mind blowing!
A really clever direction, awesome animated part which is perfectly integrated to the whole piece… This is the recipe! *EASY*

Tiger Fingers

By Flashbacker

Once upon a time, during my first trip to NYC, back in 2006, i went to see a gig at Sin-é club in lower east side and discovered the unfamous « cyber punk » band (as some of my friends would describe them) Dead Radar.
Some time later, Dead Radar project stopped, and two of its members, Jordan Lieb and Asako Fujimoto started an electronic project called Tiger Fingers.
In 2008, Tiger Fingers splited without any official album release, despite a sufficient amount of tracks to create an album. Four years later, the german label HFN Music finally headlights their productions and offers them a special edition release among of their other amazing artists.
It’s nothing to say that I couldn’t resist to make a video for one of their song, so here it is! And as the HFN team says: « Better late than never, meet Tiger Fingers. »
(Asako Fujimoto will be releasing an EP on Laybell as Cosmic Berry, out on February 4th 2013! )
