SUMMER SOLSTICE 2014,
We enter this new season full of promise, looked upon kindly by the fiery star in the sky that keeps us alive.
This year appears to be dedicated to Ô Paradis, here in Lapinia. Firstly, we are happy to announce that in September we will be releasing a tribute to that seminal Catalan project, featuring interpretations of selected Ô Paradis songs by friends, contemporaries, and admirers. "Nada Que Perder: Una Celebración de Ô Paradis" will be released on CD eco-wallet, featuring the following artists: Albireon, Awen, Comando Suzie, David E. Williams, Escama Serrada, Kaffee In Amsterdam?, Kira Lao, Le Paradisier, Mushroom's Patience, Naevus, Nature Morte, Thomas Nöla & The Black Hole, Petrograde, Polly Eurothane & Olde Grey Mare, and Wihinei Rita. Look for this via the Eskimo/Lapin Shoppe in early September. You can see its trailer by clicking on this cover.
In November, we will follow up with a brand new album by Ô Paradis entitled "Nacimiento". More details will be divulged closer to the date, but here are four samples of this album to preview in the meantime (bolded in the tracklisting):
This September, Lapin artists will be giving 2 special
performances, including rare live dates by Les
Paradisiers. On Friday September 5th, Otto's Shrunken Head
in Manhattan will host a night with Les Paradisiers and a
combined set by David E. Williams and Jerome Deppe. This
will undoubtedly be a show worth the trip for out of
towners. Not to be missed,
wethinks. A few days later on Monday September 8th, Les
Paradisiers will play at O'Brien's, Allston, MA with Polly
Eurothane on the bill as well. Delicious. Further details
will be available at the Lapin Facebook.
Just recently, dasLapin Brewhaus released a new beer: Yoshi's Sweet Potato Explosion Beer. Indeed, it is full of sweet potato, with subtle hoppiness, various spices and a magical ingredient... alcohol. DasLapin beer is not available for sale, however. It is merely to be enjoyed by people who run into Lapin operatives in "real life". All the same, here's a photo of it:
Yours in Zeus,
