The whirling L’Éclair out of the jazzy hot bed that is Geneva, Switzerland, have been mesmerizing audiences on both sides of the Alps for the past few years. The handy group released their third record last spring, the brilliant Sauropoda on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. Weighing in at five tracks, Sauropoda may look like a feather but its 37 minutes strike like a pounding round of haymakers. Attached below is the 12 minute steamer Endless Dave, a funky multi-layered dancer of a track, part bee part butterfly, spilling with a fine sense for melodies and harmonies and one thing leading to the next.
Needless to say that this exciting group of people is best to be seen on a slightly elevated stage. As luck would have it, the team is currently touring relevant parts of Europe, making a stop in Hamburg’s Turmzimmer on Thursday, February 27. Team Poule managed to secure a pair of tickets for the occasion which can be yours if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name and hope for the best. The lucky winner will be picked at random on Tuesday, Feb 25, 12pm CET sharp – and be notified immediately.
In the meantime, do enjoy the dreamy track that is Endless Dave and if you are based elsewhere in Europe, be advised that L’Éclair will be playing Düsseldorf (Feb 26), Copenhagen (Feb 28), Dresden (Feb 29!) and Berlin (March 1) and loads more too.
