In a few weeks this colorful crew recorded a mestizo rock rock album. Inspired by the road and its encounters, the wide-open horizon of possible destinies and the traveller's lucky star, this album melts the carateristic sound of the band with its Eastern Europe brass bands accents and Arab and Andalusian melodies with Josef Oster's lyrics and those of other contemporary authors such as Alain Ligier, Jean-Michel Martinez, Michele Oster or Christine Touboul in a work that combines reminiscences of Rimbaud and Brecht with Boris Vians's creaking committment or Boby Lapointe's burlesque. Josef Oster's and Maya Martinez' voices cross each other, meet and make their way together, here luminous sweet and delicate, there feverish and shaky. Simon Oster, fierce and tenacious is back on vocals for two tracks: «J'ai l'Cafard» and «Plein Aux As». Then follow the Accordion, dabbling in everything with style, the Pixies sounding sax, Arab and Klezmer clarinets, sunny castanets and shiny trombones, the unusual and unashamed trumpet, the bass, a fortress of rhythm, sensual and devilish like a burning caress, the guitar, flamenco and mestizo, reminiscent of a good Tarantino movie, sometimes brutal and distorted, faithful to the early punk wave. All are loaded on a ship of basses, drums, samples and golden cymbals that mark the space with sparkles and shimmering reflexions. A boundless world where Gipsy and Moorish Spain meets Cuban Son and Syldavian tunes, where everything is music and energy. The world of these five becomes ours. With «Tout Ce Qui Brille» LéOparleur make their way and become a bit more what they are: light, generosity, crispness, fieriness, subtleties, love, caresses, bites, games, sweet play on words and genres, humor, virtuosity, recklessness, dizzines... A new album where LéOparleur's alchemy change the «Dernier Métro's» tunnel in to a call for the sun, a call for the other, that is all that glitters and worth gold. Read more on Last.fm.
