Nicolet vinyl, Vinyle


The songs that make up Hochelaga, the first album by Etienne Hamel (aka Nicolet), are marked by vintage synthesizers cast in afrobeat rhythms, reminiscent of David Byrne or Pierre Flynn of the 80s. His sensitive writing will transport you into the gloomy everyday life of Montreal’s old working-class, wandering between fatalities and illuminations.
