Appalache is a dream. The dream of a french musician named Julien Magot. A dream of freedom. A dream of peace. His music goes towards a glorious cloud of smooth, love and celebration. It doesn’t bask into bad. It has no bundaries. Guitars from the sun take us to the rmament. Gentle layers support. Drums allow to leave matters. Friends join him on stage to glorify joy. Free. Free as a hairy sound wave. In studio, Julien Magot plays all the instruments. Whether you like it or not, he believes that Paul Hogan could be the king of ying crocodiles but overall, he knows that good shoes are required to climb the Himalayas.
October 2013 l BLWBCK043 l Achievement March (Tape)
In the past, Appalache’s music has always been a cathartic treatment for Julien Magot, but this third full-length marks an important turn. Recorded on a parisian houseboat during the heart of summer, these 11 tracks picture a new Julien Magot, healed from his personal demons, full of life and relief. “Achievement March” is about the unstoppable quest of being human, struggling with your daily life and doing mistakes that brings you down, to finally (as he confesses) find peace. By allowing himself to sing on almost the entire album, Appalache avoids his ritual digressions and wins on all fronts, more confident and lively. From the electric opening “Escape Baby” to the strange and gloomy final “Pays Double When You Are Free”, Julien succeeds to bring his new peace all around him and delivers his most spiritual record.
