Calc


Calc music is a blend between british pop and american folk, their soft tunes sound like great figures like Grandaddy or Elliot Smith from the other side of the Atlantic. Full of grace, the third opus "Any Downs At All" of these Bordeaux guys is enriched by Rudy Cocklet's production (Arno, Experience) which makes their album be the most complete and the most captivated they have ever recorded. For already 6 years, Calc has been carrying its own sweet way on the steep paths of English pop well balanced with American folk. Read more on Last.fm
Calc music is a blend between british pop and american folk, their soft tunes sound like great figures like Grandaddy or Elliot Smith from the other side of the Atlantic. Full of grace, the third opus "Any Downs At All" of these Bordeaux guys is enriched by Rudy Cocklet's production (Arno, Experience) which makes their album be the most complete and the most captivated they have ever recorded. For already 6 years, Calc has been carrying its own sweet way on the steep paths of English pop well balanced with American folk. Travelling across Europe, going in search of people keen on melancholy emotions and electric shocks, the band has conquered its audience with its sense of delicate melodies. At the beginning, about 1996, Julien Pras decided to record on 4tracks desperate love lyrics laid on intimist melodies, widely inspired by the America of Palace, Sebadoh. Despite the multiple ressources of his talent, Julien’s soon felt the need of other personalities a little bit less hypersensitive than himself in order to forge ahead and appear on stage.

This is how Calc is born with Mathieu LEGALL (keyboards), Hugo BERROUET (drums), David ARGELIES (guitar), and later joined by David LESPES (Bass Guitar – also in Pull; ex-Mary’s Child) . Calc left its doubts and timidity at home before going to the Rising Sun Studio where Rudy Coclet (Sharko, Experience, Arno…) recorded the 11 songs of “Any Dows At All” soon released by Vicious Circle in France & Shwitzerland, 62 TV in Bénélux and Primeros Pasitos in Spain (on February the 18th). “Any Downs At All” surely is a masterpiece of grace and purity . To those who would reproach “Any Downs At All” for the similarities with “XO” by Elliott Smith, we will answer that Brian Wilson composed “Pet sounds” while thinking of “Rubber Soul” by the Beatles. And who can deny that both are masterpieces? Few albums overcome the ravages of time and fashion. “Any Downs At All” is on the right track … Cathimini History • 1996 : band's start • 1999 : Something Sweet (Spirit Of Jungle) • 2000 : Great Fun (Spirit Of Jungle) • 2000 : Calc Ophonie EP with 6 classical music artists • 2002 : Any Downs At All (Vicious Circle) • 2004 : Twelve Steps to Wathever (Vicious Circle) • 2004 : Real to reel (Vicious Circle)Bordeaux, France.
