FORMATS: Mini-LP 10" [White Colour Vinyl] [Numbered Limited Edition of 500 copies] | On sale clicking: bit.ly/1xVpYV6 / Digital Mini Album

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

BELLE GHOUL, the group now formed by Christopher Tait (ELECTRIC SIX), Jesse Paris Smith (the daughter of Patti Smith and MC5’s guitarist Fred “Sonic” Smith), Matt Van, Zach Shipps and Mike Alonso, find themselves in a creative, prolific stage, which is confirmed by this new 10” mini-LP that opens up new doors within the group’s sound. It’s a slippery release, jumping between styles in a way that is only possible for two music-lovers this talented, playing with synthesizers and folk echoes, and getting deeper into the instrumental development. At the same time, it gets stronger, more forceful, especially in the immediate hits, even momentarily dipping into the mix of rock and electronic that characterized the sound of Tait’s other band.

The result is “Rabbit's Moon & Doomsday”. The album shifts between groove and danceable rock with bursts of pop, and that “Lake Of Fires” is proof. It gives off airs of the seventies amidst boosts from the hammond, while moving our feet with grace and style; the song is highly influenced by the “Twin Peaks” soundtrack. “Timepieces” holds on to a solid handful of Beatle-esque classicism with touches of psychedelic-pop and Californian choruses, and a solo that seems like it was created by Dean Wareham to decorate the resurrection of our beloved LUNA. “Momentum” closes side A; it’s an instrumental that moves from sober piano touches with echoes of glam and the recorder, to the DNTEL’s digital playfulness and LALI PUNA’s clicks. “Winter’s Gone” opens side B with evocative electronic pop that draws delicious scenery dressed up with accordions (!!!), while touching, heavy-hearted melodies sweep through to narrate, precisely, an endless winter of almost 5 months. “Around For The Weekend” gets back on the path to solid hits with a totally addictive keyboard riff, sunshine-pop influenced melodies, and rhythms that move to the beat of northern soul. “Mystery To Me” closes this limited edition with mysterious halos and wailing choruses, rising more than a few feet up off the ground.

This is definitely new proof of what a group, who is more difficult to classify, to define, and to place with every step, is capable of. Their music holds so many surprises, which we get a small taste of with every new release they offer us. May they continue with the same rhythm - three singles and a mini-LP in just over a year!

Track Name: Lakes Of Fire
I told you bout the good and the evil
I told you bout the lakes of fire
I told you bout the good and the evil

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?

Which one's sitting over your shoulder
Which one could you do without
Which one when the sky's splitting open

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?!
Hey you want it, hey cause the price you pay
On judgement day
Ha ha

I told you bout the good and the evil
I told you bout the lakes of fire
I told you bout the good and the evil
Which one could you do without

Which one's using you as a vessel
Which one is behind your eyes
Which one's gonna come to collect it

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?!
Hey you want it, hey cause on judgement day
Whose price you pay

Lakes of fire (when there's nobody around you)
Lakes of fire (tell me which will surround you)
Lakes of fire (cause it's already in me)
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it

Lakes of fire (when you go to pay the piper)
Lakes of fire (when the lights are going out here)
Lakes of fire (cause you never believed me)
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it
Track Name: Timepieces
Timepieces
Always break down on you, down on you
Never trust those timepieces
And the world's changing
Don't you stay in that town, they're still hanging round
Like hung pictures

Again you go into the rabbit hole
Look out before you fall
What will you do with all those
Pull down all the dusty frames
Calling you back again
Laying around beside those

Timepieces
Calling you back the same, but it's all changed
And you can't retrieve it
That world's ending
Leaving you in yesterday, get yourself away
From those timepieces

Again you go into the rabbit hole
Look out before you fall
What will you do with all those
Pull down all the dusty frames
Calling you back again
What will you do with all these

Go make, go make it on your own
So many fallen souls
Laying around behind you
Pull down all the dusty frames
Calling you back again
What will you do with all these
Track Name: Momentum
Instrumental
Track Name: Winter's Gone
It's coming
Been sitting in wait for so long
Here me running
There's a light at the end, thought you never would come but

These days when the weather's still gray
You roll over and pray, everything is okay
It stung, it had only begun
And I'd give my good lung just to sit in the sun

You can always tell when the winter's gone
Everybody comes out at night
You can always tell when the long winter's gone
Everybody comes out, everybody comes out

These days in the digital age
Everybody's 2D, and it's like a TV but
I see the sky start to open up wide
And I'd give my good eye just to go outside

You can always tell when the winter's gone
Everybody comes out at night
You can always tell when the long winter's gone
Everybody comes out, everybody comes out

And it's always the darkest just before you get to dawn
And it's always the darkest just before the morning comes
Winter's gone
Track Name: Around For The Weekend
Everyone here waits around for the weekend
Everybody here's coming down for the weekend
Working those gears 'til the day's never-ending
Only three more 'til we get to the weekend

"One of these days they'll get what they got comin'
One of these days we're really gonna show 'em"
Ain't it just great how it all never changes?
Nothing I can do, sit and pray for the weekend

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

Finally here never thought I would see it
Everyone's near, rally up & let's beat it
Something ain't right with the shit I was given
Matthew's out back and it looks like he's tripping

(Hold on, hold on, 'cause you're never gonna be alone)

Something ain't right in the disco casino
Internet spies in my mind on a reload
World's gonna end better get to the weekend
Sweet sentiment - "kill yourself for the weekend"

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

Everyone here waits around for the weekend
Everyone here waits around for the weekend

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today
(Tomorrow waits, but we'll always have today)
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today
Track Name: Mystery To Me
Standing by as the gates are closing
Watching you from above the town
I've been hear a thousand years now, have I ever learned?

There's still joy on the left-hand shoulder
On the right is the weight of man
It's the storms that hit too close to home that do us in

You've got time and an open playbook
You've got time and it's on your side
Comfort comes in changing ways to play it in your mind

Wish that I had the things to tell you
Wish I could make it all alright
Sometimes everything is just a mystery to me, yeah

When you get tired of the blood and shit
that's raining down, and the sunken ships
are coming back to haunt us, will we finally let them be?

Chasing down what is out of sight
Wish I could make it all alright
Sometimes nearly everything's a mystery to me, yeah

Standing by as the gates are closing
Looking out from above the town
I've been here a lifetime, I forgot how to come down
