Somewhere between François de Roubaix, Serge Gainsbourg and Air, Le Commandant Couche-Tôt ’s debut EP places itself in the forgotten “rare french groove” category, combining cinematic themes, brazilian reminiscence and memories of early 70’s film music.
Le Commandant Couche-Tôt is the brainchild of Berlin-based French keyboardist and record collector Anthony Malka. After 5 releases and 150+ gigs with his electro-funk trio The Hoo, he decided to deep digger into his own piano compositions.
This EP is a 17min odyssey oscillating between a laid back Lalo Schifrinesque opening, mysterious late 60’s film noir soundtracks and enchanting grooves.
The sketches accumulated for a couple years helped build a storyline for this warm and sophisticated 6-tracker: each track skillfully illustrates a chapter of
Le Commandant Couche-Tôt’s discovery of a mysterious island and risky encounter with its inhabitants.
On this record, Anthony Malka had the pleasure to collaborate with a few of Berlin’s finest groovers such as Hervé Salters from General Elektriks who offered a memorable Whammy-powered clavinet solo on S.O.S., as well as jazz guitarist Paul Audoynaud who brought a very cinematic and richly-arranged
touch to the tracks.
A lot of attention was given to details during the recording process, creating this intimate “Berlin DIY” sound.
