Lentonia Records Invades America!
Lentonia Records is landing in North America with gigs in the US and Canada from June 15th to beginning of July! Three bands will champion the cause of their label: electro-pop duo Video Love, Phoebe Jean And The Air Force’s soulful electro-rock, and uncompromising artist EDH.
“EDH is a radical artist who makes no compromises… No one is left indifferent by her chiseled music.” – Soon Magazine
The upcoming album Yaviz (June 12th, Lentonia Records) is a milestone in the musical journey of Emmanuelle De Héricourt aka EDH.

Video Love is a one-of-a-kind duo combining French drummer and vocalist Elmapi’s playful pop-concrete compositions with the “vampling” (video sampling) work of Matterlink’s appropriated audio from forgotten B-movies.
Video Love‘s debut album Mon Ange is a unique and powerful blend of melody, driving beats and these found sounds and as a live experience, the duo’s off-time sub-rhythms and audio collages make for a sensory pleasure bomb as much as they do for musical innovation.

The likable hellion Phoebe Jean is a one girl band with an army of sound. Born and raised in Baltimore, loved and learned in Paris and New York, Phoebe knows how to bring it all home with a masterful blend of classic club breaks, soulful funk grooves, and epic harmonic melodies that come together like a guided missile, always on target.
The first single “Day Is Gone” from the upcoming Phoebe Jean and The Air Force album Heartbreakers (and featured on the “Facts of Nature” EP out now) is an unexpectedly grimy track, raised on West Baltimore’s hyper-hyper beat patterns and thick, rutty synth bass. The song ups the pressure more and more until Phoebe lets it blow off in a massive vocal hook. The video for the track was directed by Phoebe Jean herself and features cinematography by Sienna Sheilds. Choreography is by Love, Grace O’ Neill and features the Shake Off Twinz who have also been seen with M.I.A. and Rye Rye.
