GALAXIE – “SUPER LYNX DELUXE”
SUPER LYNX DELUXE (2018)
December 10, 2017
Known for his exceptional guitar talent, Oliver Langevin began his professional career alongside such notable francophone artists as Fred Fortin, Mara Tremblay and Mononc’ Serge. He founded Galaxie 500 in 2002, and in the spring of 2002, he launched his eponymous blues roots heavy rock album .
In April 2006, Langevin released Le temps au point mort. Galaxie’s third album, Tigre et Diesel, followed in 2011, and was the only francophone album short listed to the Polaris Music Prize that year. It also was nominated in four categories at the Gala de l’ADISQ, and won a Felix for production, as well as for sound recording and mixing, while the second track, “Camouflar”, won the Felix Award for Video of the Year. Galaxie was also a big winner at the sixth annual Gala alternatif de la musique indépendante du Québec (GAMIQ), taking the prize for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (Piste 1), and Best Rock Album.
2015 saw the birth of Zulu, Galaxie’s fourth album, which was produced by Langevin with the help of Pierre Fortin and Pierre Girard. It was the logical follow up to Tigre et Diesel, a collection of electro rock party songs, infused with african rhythms. Zulu was nominated for a Juno Award for Francophone Album of the Year.
In 2016, Galaxie was featured during the Canadian Music Week and were nominated for an Independent Music Award.
Now a long awaited fifth album is finally in the works, Super Lynx Deluxe, which is set to be released February 2, 2018. Produced by Langevin, once again with the help of Pierre Fortin and Pierre Girard, it promises to be — you guessed it — out of this world.
