about

It’s now three years that the Madcaps have been roaming France and its neighboring lands with their pearly, Italian guitars and their champagne old drums. With 150 shows under their belts, they managed to save up enough to head back to Kerwax recording studio, analog Mecca of Western France. While there they churned out their third album, Slow Down, recorded live with all four Madcaps together in the same room, all in an effort to capture on wax the energy from six months of touring that shaped this album.
If the first two albums were more the brainchild of lead singer Thomas, Slow Down evens things out with Bastien and newcomer Wenceslas asserting themselves as both singers and songwriters. Despite personnel changes and new musical directions, the Madcaps have never sounded more unified. They continue to gouge out their own particular rock and roll groove while leaving behind the adolescent garage of their beginnings. The pop melodies are still there, but the songs are more stripped down and spacious, leaving room for horns, piano, organs, congas and acoustic guitars, hitting by turn shades of rhythm and blues, soul, country western, and even calypso.
Slow Down will be available on CD, vinyl, and for download March 31st on Howlin Banana, Beast, and Bickerton Records

***************************************************************************
Con más de 150 directos en los últimos meses tras la edición de su magnífico "Hot Sauce", la banda de Rennes ha estado bastante ocupada recientemente, pero aún así han conseguido sacar algo de tiempo para encerrarse en los estudios analógicos Kerwax para registrar en directo lo que es su tercer album.

Si sus dos primeros discos fueron hijos del cantante Thomas, sin embargo "Slow Down" cuenta también con la decisiva colaboración de Bastien y el recién llegado Wenceslas. Ha habido cambios en la alineación de la banda y también en lo musical que han dado mayor solidez a su sonido, lo han ennegrecido a la vez que han dejado en segundo plano el garage de sus comienzos. Las melodías pop – estos señores tienen un deje a lo Kinks irresistible – siguen ahí pero las canciones han ganado en espacio y grandeza dejando hueco a sutiles arreglos con vientos, órganos, congas y guitarras acústicas que acercan a la banda al r&b, el soul e incluso el calypso.

"Slow Down" estará disponible en formato Lp, Cd y descarga digital a partir del 31 de marzo a través de Bickerton Records, Howlin' Banana y Beast.
