Valparaiso featuring Howe Gelb release debut album September

The Parisian musical collective deriving from the cult band Jack The Ripper is releasing its first album under the Valparaiso alter ego on September 22nd, featuring the voices and poetry of Phoebe Killdeer of Nouvelle Vague, Howe Gelb, Shannon Wright, Spain’s Josh Haden, Dominique A, Moriarty’s Rosemary Standley, Venus’ Marc Huyghens, Mansfield Tya’s Julia Lanoë. The album is recorded, mixed and produced by John Parish. The first track to be released from it features a duet between guests-singers Phoebe Killdeer of Nouvelle Vague and Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb. The video which you can watch below has been directed by filmmakers Richard Dumas and Amaury Voslion who comment on the minimalistic black and white clip starring a young lady eating savagely a bloody pomegranat (nice) while taking her bath: ”To drown or not to drown… Are you experienced?”
