Misteur Valaire / Friterday Night
Back in my college/University years there was nothing that I loved doing more then dig, record stores, used and new, I would just waste hours just searching for something new, new sounds, new artists. Of course over the years it gets harder and harder and with less free time my digging session are mostly done on-line however once in a while, on my lunch break from work, I’ll go to a record store have a short but pleasant digging session.
That’s how I discovered Misteur Valaire. They are a Sherbrook (Canada) based group and do something new and original. It’s a mixture of Jazz, Hip Hop and Electronica. They rocked the International Jazz Festival last year (so it seems) and apparently in live concerts, they will rock the crowd plenty (that’s all I kept reading when I was doing a little research).
I love the album, it did take me a few listens to get used to it but it grew on me and just like a nice wine it kept getting better the more I listened to it, the better it got. So if you like electronic music or experimental jazz this is your thing and even if you are not into these genres you can always give it a try. The best part is that’s its totally free. The group wanted to make the album available on-line because they want people to attend their shows (I like the marketing scheme) that’s why you will have to leave your e-mail address before you get the download and it is worth it.
It’s a free DOWNLOAD
Peace & I’m out !
