MAUD LÜBECK - La Fabrique
(Format : 12" LP vinyl limited to 500 copies 7C5)
"Like French Chanson 60ies icon Barbara, Maud Lübeck is not a woman of her own time. She is ageless, not limited to any one period. She has no real musical family, and is a spectral beauty moved by mischievousness and music."
Jean-Daniel Beauvallet (Les Inrockuptibles)
Over the last few years, Maud Lübeck has managed to strike emotional chords with anyone fortunate enough to see her concerts, notably during her residence at the legendary Parisian venue Les Trois Baudets. Maud Lübeck is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the south of France. Her unassuming presence and bittersweet poetry are captivating.
Maud's songs are addictive and they are inspired by the best French music from the 60s and 70s as well as British pop ditties.
Released by Volvox Music on CD last spring, La Fabrique is available on vinyl for the first time on Les Disques du 7ème Ciel.
You can stream 3 tracks off La Fabrique on Les Disques du 7ème Ciel.
Vinyl version of La Fabrique is available from Les Disques du 7ème Ciel.

MAUD LÜBECK - Lobotom
(Format : CD + large 28-page heavyweight illustrated booklet limited to 500 copies 7C4D)
Along with La Fabrique, Les Disques du 7ème Ciel is releasing Lobotom, the soundtrack to an imaginary film recorded by Maud Lübeck in 2002.
Published for the first time in the form of a CD with a beautiful 28-page heavyweight illustrated booklet, Lobotom charts the adventures of Emma, a young woman who is charmed by a real estate ad for a house to let on an island. When she enters the house, she falls through the floor and continues her tour in the haunted basement. She then finds herself in a strange and unusual universe. It is none other than her own body and she wants to take possession of it.
The story, written in French and translated into English and Spanish in the booklet, allows us to see a side to Maud Lübeck that is different to the one in the album La Fabrique. More whimsical and experimental, Lobotom shows a young woman under the influence of SERGE GAINSBOURG (Melody Nelson era) and TIM BURTON.

LOLITO - Lolito
(Formats : 12" LP vinyl limited to 500 copies 7C5 • CD Digipack 7C5D • Download 7C5DL)
After having played extensively in France in the last three years and appearing at the Main Square festival in Arras , France as well as Les Transmusicales in Rennes, France in 2012, Lolito's first eponymous album has landed.
Anne, Florence, Mathias and Michel have composed a series of short electrifying songs that make you want to jump around like a little kid on your bed. Although their influences are clear (PIXIES, BLONDE REDHEAD, BEASTIE BOYS, B-52's), the group has a very fresh sound with incredibly catchy songs.
Happy and high-spirited, these four energetic musicians never think twice about switching roles or instruments. They also know how to give some of their songs a more melancholic tone without ever departing from the pop-rock energy that dominates their first eponymous album.
In life as well as on stage, the members of Lolito display a joy which frankly is rare in these uncertain times.
You can stream four tracks off Lolito on Les Disques du 7ème Ciel.
Lolito vinyl and CD versions are available from Les Disques du 7ème Ciel.
Download version will be available on January 24th, 2013.
