Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes - Paix, 1972

Over the course of this record, Catherine Ribeiro will either win your heart or rip it out with her powerful, uninhibited vocals. She leaves plenty of space for Alpes's long instrumental sections of whirling medieval psychedelia. Alpes remind me of a more stripped down Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, with some spaghetti western guitar thrown in for good measure. Homemade synths including the percuphone and the cosmophone, both invented by band member Patrice Moullet (friendly bearded man above). Check out the super cute video of them on French TV below.
