Hypnolove: Ghost Carnival
on 12 May 2013
A French trio from Toulouse, Hypnolove formed in 2006 out of a shared penchant for disco and '80s pop. Their unique sound earned them industry admiration over the years, and their just-released sophomore album, Ghost Carnival, proves why. Steered by Ed Banger producer Mickey Moonlight (also known as Midnight Mike) and dropped on the Record Makers label—which is home to Kavinsky and Sébastien Tellier—the 30-minute album is a perfect storm of musical creativity from start to finish. Tracks like "Come To My Empire" and the already-released "Holiday Reverie" will definitely sauce up a few late nights.
