As announced a couple of days ago with the official music video of the single “Rire clavecin”, about 4 years after ‘Solstices’, Swiss alternative/prog/psych “variété” five-piece La Bande à Joe just released its third full-length record called ‘Chrones’ – inspired by the book La Horde du Contrevent d’Alain Damasio – and out now on LP & digital through Table Basse Records (Orme, Basalte, Kalkas,…) and the main legal platforms.
For the record…
Formed in 2012 in the area of Lausanne (Switzerland), La Bande à Joe is a alternative/progressive/psych “variété” band inspired by various bands and artists, from Can to Léo Ferré passing through Tame Impala or The Electruc Prunes.
In 2015, the musicians released a debut full-length effort called ‘Histoires’ through the swiss label Cheptel Records followed three years later by ‘Solstices’ still on Cheptel Recs and distributed by Irascible with massive airplays on national radio stations and a bunch of gigs on the local scene.
Since then and due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the band spent a lot of time to write and record their third album called ‘Chrones’ and to be released on Spring 2022 through Table Basse Records.
