Thomas Nola & son Orchestre - So Long Lale Andersen [CD]
Dust off your cellos and Moogs, little children... this August sees the second full-length Thomas Nöla et son Orchestre release of the year on the heels of May's soundtrack to 'The Doctor'. It feautures a wide range of genres, from the synth and piano waltz "Hi-hat Men", to the new wave of "Henry Pelham", to the cello and piano-laden title track. The album features exciting collaborations with Karen Langlie (cello, ukelele) of the futuristic ragtime acts Miss Moonshine, The Sob Sisters, Wisteriax (and plenty more), international synth-pop sensation Dustmuffin (drums and co-production) as well as Melissey Castevet's female vocals from the crypt... even an inebriated trumpet cameo by half of Radioactive Prostitute. Is this the distant past? Far off future? Yes. This enhanced disc contains pictures, lyrics and a music video. Comes in a digipak with fun artwork sure to tickle the eye sockets. Also available as a digital download from iTunes.
