The young Australian duo of Gypsy & The Cat released their debut full-length album October 1. My first introduction to them was their fine track "Jona Vark" back in 2009. Then after being on the respected "Kitsuné Maison Compilation 9" earlier this year with a remix of their excellent track "Time To Wander", I've got my eyes on these lads, expecting big things to come.
So when the album landed, I thought there would be much coverage on the blogs about the release, but so wasn't the case. So now I will write about "Gilgamesh", which is a great debut album from Gypsy & The Cat. Several fine tracks putting you in a mixed mood between electronic, rock, pop, some 80s ballad vibes and a bit of folk.
The two guys behind Gypsy & The Cat are only 21 years old, named Xavier Bacash and Lionel Towers, and originally out of Melbourne. They started making music together in a garage for only one year ago. Before that they've been DJing in Melbourne with a lot of love for the French electro. You can hear the influences from the electro disco in their music.
Above mentioned tracks "Jona Vark" and "Time To Wander" are still their best tracks yet and many blogs have blogged about these. The Aereplane remix of "The Piper's Song" is also a fine gem, also picked up by many. But now Tracasseur will give you some other great tracks from "Gilgamesh". Go and buy the whole release here.
