1. Two great albums so far, tours through Europe, played on John Peelʼs legendary BBC radio show, best friends with Honey For Petzi and responsible for some of our all-time-most-favourite-songs: Toboggan from Lausanne became a fixed parameter within our musical cosmos. Now our paths have crossed finally! With delight we announce the release of SR031: Toboggan - E Brutal
Being part of the environment around swiss high quality label Gentlemen and being members or a permanent guest in some of those bands (Maude Oswald plays in Favez, Jérémie Conne plays in Rosqo, Valérie Niederoest sang on Honey For Petzis "Angel's Camp"), the music of Toboggan reflects the broad spectrum of their hometown's music scene: The playfullnes and finesse of timeless rockmusic combined with the deep and gloomy melancholy of an impellent and almost chanson-like harmony, the transparancy and easiness of a pop song broken by the sad and emotional part of modern postrock, Valérie Niederoest's discreet and narrative voice leading through a complex and intimate music: On "E Brutal" Toboggan collect ten touching and enthralling songs, chary and fragile but so overwhelmingly exuberant at the same time. Cast in the direct and compact recordings of Thierry Van Osselt (at Planet Roc, Berlin) the band collects 10 touching and compelling songs on "E Brutal" that surely would not fit better to any other label!
"E Brutal" is relase on Saiko records in France and will be released on February 13th, 2009 in Germany on Sinnbusrecords on CD as well as in various digital formats on almost every relevant download platforms. Toboggan will be on tour in spring 2009.
2. Toboggan is Corey Martin, a Montreal-based house producer.
