Les Cendres et le Vent is the latest masterpiece by multi instrumentalist and songwriter, JP Marsal, under the 202project moniker. This album is a varied mix of everything from Sisters of Mercy-esque post punk, to Justin Broadrick industrial soundscapes, to even glimpses of hip hop slightly reminiscent of Dalek. Les Cendres et le Vent is brimming with atmosphere, while still rhythmic and exciting. We are honored to be the exclusive US label for this album. Above are 3 of the 13 tracks on this album. While they do a good job giving an overview of the album's sound, the whole thing must be heard to truly understand it.
In JP's own words:
"To pass five months alone with my mother who had a cancer in terminal phase was the starting point of this album.
I want this album to be a exact reflection of the world I was living in at the time (refugees, wars, economic crises, rich more rich and the poor more poor..etc), where everything seems to be so dark but at the same time, like the ashes who will remineralized the ground to make the seeds grow up they must be some kind of hope !"
