about

French lifeguard and sonic artist Roméo Poirier’s long sold out debut tape finally gets a vinyl reissue. Plage Arrière is a deep sea meditation on a constellation of Greek beaches across three islands. Trumpets, echo-clicks and Harold Budd-esque shimmer piano whirl together on these sand-caked missives, tumbled and re-engineered by their surroundings like seaglass. Plage evokes the sub-aqeaous ambitions of Jürgen Müller, or Jan Jelinek inspecting a coral reef.

The album has been remastered for vinyl by Sam Annand of Esk. Building on its original artwork, the vinyl edition features new photography by Roméo himself. Released alongside our friends SWIMS.



'necessary vinyl edition of a much-adored tape release, likely to charm the pants off Jan Jelinek and To Rococo Rot fans with an intoxicatingly heat-hazy ambient collage inspired by Aegean sojourns' - Boomkat

'a future classic, no doubt' - All Night Flight Records

'a constantly compelling record' - Norman Records

'blissful and soothing, it’s a treat for the ears' - Bandcloud

'absolutely enchanting' - Beach Sloth

'the only cassette I'll play in the car ... it's beautiful and will guide us through the night' - Robert Lippok
