Colleen Et Les Boîtes À Musique (RSD17)
the leaf label
Ten years on from Colleen’s final release for The Leaf Label, they are reissuing three of her celebrated albums on strictly limited edition coloured vinyl for Record Store Day 2017.
Limited to just 750 copies for the world, this is the first time Colleen Et Les Boîtes À Musique has ever been released on vinyl, with brand new artwork by long term collaborator Iker Spozio. Colleen Et Les Boîtes À Musique (2006) was recorded using only sounds generated by music boxes, and was originally conceived as a high-profile commission by the Atelier de Création Radiophonique (part of French national radio station France Culture). Colleen (Cécile Schott) is as popular as ever with a new album due soon, and her 2015 album Captain Of None (Thrill Jockey) featuring in many end of year lists including Uncut, Rough Trade, NPR, New York Times, The Quietus and KEXP.
