Artist: LEGRAND, MICHEL
Title: Qui Etes Vous Polly Maggoo? (Limited Edition)
Format: 7"
Label: We Release...
Country: Switzerland
Price: $33.00
"Ultra-limited (to 100 copies) reissue of Michel Legrands 1966 cult classic original soundtrack EP, with beautifully handmade and hand-folded original cover art -- a must-have! Includes two important, previously-unreleased-on-vinyl bonus tracks. A true time-capsule of the effulgence of the 60s, Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? (1966) is an arthouse movie spoofing the fashion world and its excesses. The movie developed cult status thanks to its gyrating scenario satirizing politics, fashion, the media, and more aspects of the mid-60s French society, and its detours into fantasy sequences and animated segments. In William Kleins movie, fashion often takes on a religious connotation, which is well underlined by Legrands superb soundtrack. Michel Legrand was behind the music of The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Summer of 42 (1971), Yentl (1983), Never Say Never Again (1983 (Sean Connerys last Bond film)), and hundreds of other soundtracks, and has recorded with Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Aznavour, James Ingram, Barbra Streisand, and Sarah Vaughan, to name a few." - We Release...

Artist: UMILIANI AS MOGGI, PIERO
Title: Tra Scienza e Fantascienza
Format: LP
Label: We Release...
Country: Switzerland
Price: $27.00
"First vinyl reissue of a highly-sought after electronic abstract future jazz release by Italian soundtrack and library music composer Piero Umiliani, originally released on Umilianis label Omicron in 1980 under the pseudonym Moggi. Umilianis releases are generally expensive and hard to find, and Tra Scienza e Fantascienza is no exception. Umiliani was a master, gifted with a never-ending passion for music, and an experimental innovator who manipulated synthesizers with ease, forging a sound that could be reductively termed avant-garde. Timeless atmospheres and alien hypnotic sonorities that are modern and charmingly retro; minimal and complex; arranged with precision. Umiliani was way ahead of his time; hear, for instance, "Happy Accompaniment": it sounds like a 2015 minimal house track." - We Release Whatever the Fuck We Want.
