New Joakim Album! - 'Milky Ways' LP [Sneak Peek]

The french modern electronic artist Joakim Bouazziz aka Joakim has new music for you - and its not french electro. In 2007, Joakim created what seemed to be an instant cult classic when he released Monsters & Silly Songs, which brought together his vast array of skills as a multi-instrumentally talented musician. Now Joakim plays with a live band! JOAKIM & THE DISCO

His latest (2009) LP entitled Milky Ways continues this trend by blending many traditional aka organic instruments with subtle synth pads and effects. At times fairly electronic and even Animal Collective'y, this album has something for the entire spectrum of electronic fans.

Listening to this album, one notices that Joakim's songs sound as if they are played live - for an electronic album, it has a very organic feel. This is done by utilizing great drum recordings layered with instrumentation that can be re-constructed live. That is to say that he doesn't seem to do much editing to his songs like a dj/producer would. Joakim is an artist and a musician not merely knob twiddler or a mode selector ;)
