Forever Pavot – Miguel el Salam
I recently found out about Forever Pavot, simply from a friend posting a link on facebook, and after hearing his work, I’m very glad I clicked that link.Apologies for taking this directly from the press release, but they know a lot more than me and sound good to –
Forever Pavot is the solo project of Emile from Parisian psych/prog group Arun Tazieff. Originally intended by Emile as a low-key diversion from the band, two sold-out singles have considerably raised Forever Pavot’s profile and a full album has been recorded for imminent release.
Miguel el Salam has that trademark Forever Pavot sound; beautifully constructed ‘60s psych blended with an irresistible twist of Ennio Morricone and a passing nod to contemporary bands such as Tame Impala and Aquaserge. La Rabla mixes together a Syd Barrett-esque vocal line with stunning fuzz guitar and a dream-like Gallic atmosphere.
The 7″ single released on The Sound Of Salvation label, will be a limited run of just 250 copies on white vinyl with no plans for a repress, so grab it while you can. Or you can get the digital version from his bandcamp page.
