new wave copy centre zones

New wave revival or pastiche? Speedqueen feat. Dennis Tyfus & Milan Warmoeskerken … the latter is also in Tone Zones alongside Elko Blijweert … who recorded the exquisite Front 242 cover version below!

Kinda reminds me of “Chicks in leather“, btw … Also, how come LiMo’s “Das Ist Der Rhythmus, Mit Dem Du Mit Mußt” (2002) isn’t on YouTube yet?

sandrine platine

Yes! New work by Sandrine Collard, this time around aka Platine! Seeing she signed for one of the best pop albums ever produced in Belgium ou dans la francophonie, I’m pretty excited to see #new album tagged to Platine’s SoundCloud

a bit of a dez mona dream

The album’s been out for weeks, the single for months, and still that groove of Suspicion(62TV, rel. 2012-10-25) keeps haunting me … as does “A little bit of a dream”, with its mellow 1972ish vibe – it ought to bring them a hit in France. The sixties soundtrack feel of Fool’s dayand the funky blues of The back doorare two more highlights of “A Gentleman’s Agreement”, Dez Mona‘s fifth and most accessible album yet (produced by Jo Francken, also featuring Roel Van Camp, Steven Cassiers, Tijs Delbeke, Sjoerd Bruil and even Tom Van Laere & Stef Kamil Carlens).
