CITÉ LUMIÈRE Le Songe De Kepler LP
Cite Lumiere never imagined themselves making electronic music, but here they are with Le Songe De Kepler. LP on Polytechnic Youth, limited to 300.
After a short, late summer break (bar a few blink and youll miss them lathe cut 45 releases) Polytechnic Youth return to the fray with a mighty new LP which kicks off a hectic release schedule from now til Christmas; PY devotees will be delighted to hear… This one is killer, “Le Songe De Kepler” from Paris based duo CITE LUMIERE, initially released on cassette only via the fabulous French label “Err Rec”, in December 2017. With barely a second listen required, PY picked up on it and are delighted to release it on wax for the first time; filled out and expanded slightly with remixed tunes and with fabulous new sleeve art to boot…. Eleven mighty pieces of minimal synth / electronique pop, which tip their cap to those trailblazing early synth pop releases via early Mute / Blackwing Studios, Some Bizarre, early Cherry Red and those great Celluloid label releases in France which paved their own minimal synth course from the late seventies.
