Bootchy Temple – “Glimpses” premiere
Bootchy Temple was formed in Bordeaux, France, in 2012. The band recorded their first demos during trips to Les Landes, slowly crafting their music in the calm of the southwestern countryside. From these experimenting sessions came out Bootchy Temple’s sound: touching, melancholic home made pop music, reminiscent of 90’s indie music (Beat Happening, Yo La Tengo) and Sarah Records’ Twee Pop.
Two albums and a few tours later, the gang is about to make its come back with its third album Glimpses
. Quite like the sketches appearing on Emma Kadraoui’s artwork, this new album let’s the auditor ‘glimpse’ at the recording process, as unfinished tracks, tape recording sounds or odd mixing ideas were left in the album for all to hear. And yet, Glimpses
turns out as the band’s strongest, most cohesive album, perfectly encapsulating the band’s own personal vision of pop music.
