Just Another Christmas Wish

by Tan Le Racoon

A seasonal wake up call. Indie? Yes, but in honor of all the classic christmas songs, here with a pretty clear -if naive- message. The flip is a pure Power Pop/ Rock n Roll track from the album "Dangerously Close To Love", plus an instrumental.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Previous voices on the album "Dangerously Close To Love":

"Uplifting 60s vibe like the Fab Four, a little Psychedelic, a little Bowie. Tan LeRacoon could take the place of The Corals", FriedaFM.

“Like The Saints meet poppier Swell Maps, only played well“, Carsten Friedrichs, Superpunk.

“Gothic Soul”, ByteFM.

“A band not to be missed at Reeperbahn Festival”, Rolling Stone.

“[a kick-ass]you can get from Tan LeRacoon. This total piece of Art lives in a little warped Punk-Folk world… Too bad Willy Deville and Nikki Sudden are not around to experience this”. Visions.

"...and admidst there's Tan LeRacoon, who makes his way through the songs like an entertainer on fear&Loathing- trip, a crooning gentleman of the old school, may this sound like Rock n Roll- Rat Pack, 70s blues or Pulp Fiction- whatever. Tan LeRacoon rips you out of this and makes your musical thoughts fly on a very special individual way. Kick it!", C.Weiss, Nachtasyl/Thalia Theater.
“Charming like Nikki Sudden or Jonathan Richman… (on ‘Grace_Disgrace’:) a sad deepness, that’s high art …”, Glitterhouse.

"... shows this man as an unpredictable anarchist, who grinds everything from Indie Garage Pop via Jazz ballads to Antifolk with Punk attitude. By doing this we recollect the greats of this genre: Jonathan Richman, Wreckless Eric or Nikki's dead brother Epic Soundtracks", gaesteliste.de.

"... cool, freespirited, longing Rock, that understands Post Punk just as well as Soul... One of the great, almost famous stars of our city!", Fuchs, Szene Hamburg.

"Anti Folk- Weirdness... he toured the world with such diverse musicians as Kruder&Dorfmeister, Ólafur Arnlads or Agnes Obel, he was member of Nikki Sudden's band, whose influence obviously sneaked into this baroque Lo-Fi Folkpop. A dozen eclecticism, strummed hits for the shortlived eternity of today's world. Sad and sublime, epic and as if written as first take productions. A visit from the weird genius. References are Mac deMarco-Slacker-70s, Jonathan Richman/Saints copy Sufjan Stevens and Adam Green seems inspired again. 60s melodies, ArtPunk, Woody Guthrie, Ariel Pink and the Beach Boys, set the level. Great effort!“, Flight13.

“It's super raw. You don't hear that enough these days”, Brian Lopez, Xixa.

“A great balance of grit and beauty”, Andrew Hoepfner, Houseworld, Creaky Boards.

"Raw poetry... a great Punk-Folk record", Hamburger Abendblatt.

“(Could be) Psych album of the year”, Helmut Heuer, Lounge + Légère Records.
