In the past, Appalache’s music has always been a cathartic treatment for Julien Magot, but this third full-length marks an important turn. Recorded on a parisian houseboat during the heart of summer, these 11 tracks picture a new Julien Magot, healed from his personal demons, full of life and relief.
‘Achievement March’ is about the unstoppable quest of being human, struggling with your daily life and doing mistakes that brings you down, to finally (as he confesses) find peace. By allowing himself to sing on almost the entire album, Appalache avoids his ritual digressions and wins on all fronts, more confident and lively. From the electric opening ‘Escape Baby’ to the strange and gloomy final ‘Pays Double When You Are Free’, Julien succeeds to bring his new peace all around him and delivers his most spiritual record.
