released June 23, 2014

"Musique d’errance, cultivée, sophistiquée...Mais pleine de sang aussi. De sombreur et de sueur. Digne de Tuxedomoon, de son Desire. Victime de la danse, de la nuit, de ses vices. Coupable façon Dalhia Noir." Yan Kouton - A découvrir absolument

"The music these guys make is extremely original. They describe it as ”a kind of tribute to film noir, crime jazz, from Elmer Bernstein to Ennio Morricone through John Zorn or the Lounge Lizards.” After listening to the album that description pretty much nails it." Matt Jensen - The Equal Ground

"Jazz et cuivres extatiques sur « Work out in the zone » et « Press to kill again », électro-rock froide et un peu fade sur « Gioco giallo », transe orientale sur « Otto arp », piano lourd rappelant Morphine sur « Unlucky » et « James 77", ce disque explose les codes et respire la liberté à plein nez." Emeline Marceau - Longueur d'Ondes
