Yvon Danglades - Destruction

    Yvon Danglades was an unknown musician/composer/singer from the West Indies, he just released this seldom seen pretty confidential hybrid album going from outsider folk to carribean reggae, the kind of private Lp you have to listen several times to really enjoy it !  Probably one of the best to be released on Oxygen, a parisian independent confidential label existing from 1977 to 1981. Most pressings were limited runs. The Lp opens with the title track, Déstruction, a mesmerizing bluesy reggae with dubious raw bass, rootsy guitar and tight drums. Chante L'amour is super nice reggae love song always with a minimalistic DIY touch and cool arrangement. J'ai Rêvé Jesus is a Xian Reggae but this time for the beatheadz, opening with massive pounding wonky drum break easily choppable. La Vie is the track I like the most, a really loner folk with great naive lyrics ! Laisse Nous Allé and Bagail connaitre are 2 nice cadence tunes that remind the caribbean origins of the artist ! Record is EX to NM. Sleeve is strong EX.
