The project

St.Lô

 

In less than a year, St.Lô revealed itself as a rare musical experience full of soul and rage on the best French venues. Since Les Transmusicales 2012, the dark, elegant alchemy between American singer and performer Mezz Walidah and the groove delivered by her Breton accomplices iOta, Ton's and docMau, captures a wider audience at each new appearance.

 

 

 

 

The album

 

After some time discussing with several partners, we have finally decided to carry out our debut album in total independencefree to decide the turn our artistic direction will take and assuming that over the past three years our tracks had reached a state of completion. So as to fulfill our goal, we need just as much support and warm appreciation from our audience that has constantly built up in both love and loyalty, gig after gig. 

We are St.Lô because You are St.Lô !

 

Alongside a team of committed artists - Stoëmp for the graphic design and Earl Blaize (Antipop Consortium) for the production - we started the recording of the album in our home studio, where the sound of St.Lô was crafted.

 

The tracks are now in the hands of Earl Blaize : after recording Mezz Walidah's voice cuts, the final production process is going on, at Headnoddas Headquarters studio, New York. Meanwhile, in Brussels, Stoëmp is busy delivering the best of sleeve art, abstract and elegant.

This debut album ought to be released in February 2014 in both cd and vinyl. It will also be the beginning of the Spring/Summer tour.

 

We need your help and financial support to produce and promote the album !

FRENCH PRESS REVIEW  :

 

« Belle histoire que celle de ce trio de Lorientais croisant un jour la route de la poète et chanteuse new-yorkaise Hanifah Walidah (… ) Entre rugosité blues, verve rap politisée et profondeur soul, le chant de Miss Walidah rayonne d'autant plus que son énergie de performeuse irradie la scène. Derrière leurs machines, les Français distillent ce qu'il faut de nappes mélancoliques et de punch électro pour transformer en triomphe cette rencontre transmusicale »

Le Monde – Stéphane Davet – 10/12/12

 

« St. Lô est un projet sans frontières, ni spatiales, ni temporelles, ni stylistiques. Les trois musiciens programmateurs bretons modèlent un son sombre, profond, et d’une incommensurable finesse, qui a autant à voir avec le jazz de Nina Simone qu’avec l’abstract hip hop de Buck 65 ou l’électro post-rock d’Ez3kiel. Un écrin complexe mais confortable pour la voix de l’incroyablement charismatique Hanifah Walidah, que l’on connaissait sous le nom de Sha-Key lorsqu’elle officiait au sein des mythiques Brooklyn Funk Essentials. Légendaire. »

Arte Live Web – décembre 2012

 

« Magnifique révélation, un coup de cœur !! »

Ouest France Laurent Frétigné 18/05/13

 

« Démarrer la journée avec le trio franco-américain St.Lô, c’est comme s’envoyer une dose d’EPO avant l’ascension de l’Alpe-d’Huez. On pète le feu »

Télérama Sortir (Rock en Seine 2013)

 

« Saisissante et insaisissable, St.Lô est une rencontre à ne pas rater »

Why fund it?

We have chosen to produce this album in full independence with the help of both talented and experimented partners each of whom is totally dedicated to the project from the beginning.

 

The total amount needed so as to achieve our goal is 25 000€ minimum. We thought it wise not to set ourselves such an important sum to raise through this campaign, but keep up the work of supporting us even after the 12000€ have been reached.

 

What the money raised will be used for :

 

ALBUM PRODUCTION :

 

- Mix of the album  (studio renting, Earl Blaize's fees)

- Mastering

- Sleeve creation 

- Pressing

- Mechanical rights clearance

 

PROMOTION:

 

- Video teaser realization

- Press and web agent

- Media partnership

- Expedition fees

- Flyers/posters print

- Press photo

 

CLIP:

 

Two video clips to be shot for  "In the pines" and "Flight & Fantasy"
