Sylvain the Librarian was a Jamendo find of mine a LONG time ago (back in the early days of the podcast, when I didn’t do things in a way that made much sense – though not much has changed, I suppose) that I enjoyed a lot. His album was called Staff Only No Vikings, and was a neat pop album. My favourite track was the lead track, Money well spnt.
Anyway, Sylvain recently let me know that the album was getting a re-release treatment on vinyl, courtesy of Dymaxion Groove. On the Alternative Airwaves Facebook page, Sylvain clarified what was done with the new album: “there’s a bonus track, three tracks have been touched up (including Daddy Play) and the whole thing has been remastered. Cheers!” So, it sounds very cool. Had I a vinyl player, I would probably try to pick this up. It’s only $23.00 (plus s&h, I can only assume).
You can buy the album from Dymaxion Groove, where you can also give it a preview. The other cool thing about it is that the record is “Clear with a blue haze to the center, it matches the beautiful cover illustration by Thibault Cabanas.” That artwork is pretty great, by the way – here, why don’t I include it in the blog post then?
There’s also a new video for Money well spnt to go along with this release; you can go to it directly via Vimeo, or stream it here!
