Thomas Mery Invites Purr Mates On 2010 EP

Thomas MeryLater this month, Parisian folk singer-songwriter Thomas Mery will head to Brittany in order to record all-new material with engineer Miguel Constantino (Papier Tigre, Centenaire, La Terre Tremble !!!).

Thomas will welcome his former Purr fellows Stéphane Bouvier and Jérôme Lorichon (Berg Sans Nipple) to play bass, clarinet, drums, and trumpet on new songs such as “Ca” and “Aux Immenses Fenêtres”, which Thomas recently started playing live in Lille and Paris. The 4 to 5 tracks, mostly sung in French, will be released in early 2010 as a vinyl and digital EP.

You may already listen to some of those new songs in Dr Adams’ session streamable here for one month. Thomas recorded this French radio show prior to a home gig set up on November 1st by Dr Adams. Thanks to the latter’s kind invite, we were lucky enough to attend this lovely intimate show, where one could get hypnotized by the smell of Tartiflettes and the swirling sparkles of a disco ball while Thomas sang his new songs along with older ones from 2006’s A Ship, Like A Ghost, Like A Cell. A nice night with nice people in the North countryside of France.

In other Purr-related news, Berg Sans Nipple’s 3rd album should be expected soon, as the duo has finished recording.
