Les Joyaux De La Princesse - Aux Petits Enfants De France


The wonderful first release from one of my favorite artists of all time. Les Joyaux De La Princesse is Erik Konofal. Each of his releases present an exhaustively-researched historical point of interest, always dealing with the state of Europe (and France in particular) in the era building up to and during World War II. It's difficult to pidgeonhole him into a particular genre, but industrial is the one most commonly associated with him. His compositions range from droning industrial landscapes to mournful organ dirges, often sampling archival vocal songs and speeches from his era of interest.

This is a remastered version of his first release, which was limited to 49 cassette copies in packaging which set the tone for what would be a trend of lavish presentation: a wooden, coffin-shaped box with several postcard inserts and a sheaf of wheat.
