Beautiful, wistful psychedelic folky art rock with Roget Melt's Pleine Lune EP. Despite being involved in the jazzier, more afro-beat affair 'Madras Express' released in '81, this one represents the only solo outing of this obscure yet intriguing artist born in Martinique. Like all the best music, it's difficult to explain what's going on here, yet there's plenty of nods to the artist's island homeland, with chirping birds and a general tropical aura, but the bluesy guitar and longing vocals give a somewhat melancholic feel. Really amazing and unique EP. (Vinyl & Sleeve NM // Ex-deadstock).
