Repress on double LP
'Sky Girl' is a mysteriously unshakeable companion, a deeply melancholic and sentimental journey through folk-pop, new wave and art music micro presses that span 1961-1991. A seemingly disparate suite of selections of forgotten fables by more or less neverknowns, 'Sky Girl' forms a beautifully coherent and utterly sublime whole deftly compiled by French collectors DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery. From Scott Seskind's adolescent musical road movie to Karen Marks' icy Oz-wave, the charming DIY storytelling of Italian-American go-getter Joe Tossini and the ethereal slow dance themes of Parisian artists Nini Raviolette and Hugo Weris, 'Sky Girl' resonates on a wide spectrum historically, geographically and stylistically. It unites in a singular, longing, almost intangible ambience. Liner notes by Ivan Smagghe and artwork from Misha Hollenbach (Perks and Mini).
