La Résistance Française 
La Résistance Française is my latest psychedelic album. This time I recorded a concept album and the theme is The French Resistance of WWII.
I don't speak/read the french language but I thought it would be nice to have the titles in french as the songs are actually related to french history,
The cover was painted by my son when he was three years old. I digitally edited the colors and designed yet another 50-60's jazz cover.
The songs are psychedelic but not 60's psychedelia, they're more like a Spacemen 3 tribute.
L'Appel Du 18 Juin
This was the first I recorded and thought of putting it on another album I have in queue, then I decided to record a whole album in this style and the theme stuck. The lyrics are about the historic speech of June 18 1940 by Charles de Gaulle on BBC Radio.
Charles André Joseph Marie De Gaulle
This is the one I like the least of all.
La Résistance Française
This now short instrumental was actually longer and it was going to be the centerpiece but I decided to cut it because the main guitar was too similar to Sonic Youth's "Sunday".
My favorite from the album just because it has some subtle changes even though is the same pattern for almost the entire song.
Forces Françaises Libres
A long instrumental.
Croix De Lorraine
A short instrumental.
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
I have two more albums to post for what's left of this year, one of them is another Stoner Rock album which was recorded earlier than this one you've read about. I need to write lyrics for both of them but apart from that they're pretty much finished.
