Self released cassette, France, 1989

François Banholzer‘s second tape after his amazing A trip to heave and ho, up, down, to and fro, posted last year, Onion and Day-Dreamed Love is even more song-oriented and psychedelic, while Banholzer’s songwriting skills have dramatically improved. This collection of exquisite and haunting songs sounds more professional and the cassette as a whole is homogenous and consistent, thanks perhaps to Fabrice Janicaud and Patrick Kollender’s efficient production work.  The Psychedelic influences re-emerge as Banholzer’s own take on Psychedelism-cum-Melancholy, a bit like a mix between Syd Barrett and Marguerite Duras, if one can figure that out.

    Gracias, Josefo. Unfortunately, I talk a lot on this blog already and don’t have much free time to talk with you personally. But reading other mp3 blogs in addition to Continuo will teach you many things on unusual music. Feel free to visit fellow bloggers listed on the side bar.
