Bel Esprit is the forthcoming release from avant garde/psych Greek band Chickn, and the follow-up to last year’s Wowsers.

Bel Esprit comes out on October 18th, via Inner Ear Records. For those of you missing Captain Beefheart, you will be happy, you checked it out.
Chickn on “Infrared Panda Club”
“Chickn fish for songs in seas where one can see all the blues, under skies where one can see all the stars. That’s the only way to maintain any chance of lyrical freedom inside a world full of genres and expired interest. Infrared Panda Club is an ode to small scale weal, possessed by its obsessions. Please release it from any expectations and listen to it loud in stereo – straight or mixed, preferably with two parts of Captain Beefheart and one part of Tom Tom Club. “
