Scotch & Sofa

chanson // beatbox

Scotch & Sofa is comprised of a Miss ChloĆ© Monin and Sir Romain Preuss. Chloe went to the jazz school of Montpellier; and then sought a bandmate. On the walls of the school, she passed an ad: “seeks guitar”. As a self-taught musician, Romain developed the “finger picking” technique while listening to Joe Tex, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding or Thelonious Monk. He saw Chloe’s post. Months and months later and we can now enjoy this video. (thx Christophe!)

  11. Shawn :

    itunes doesn’t seem to have this track – three other excellent ones – but not this. Is there another address for this track specifically? What a fantastic find!

    This is SO cool. Definitely also thought she was playing the theramin at first, but am quite thankful she’s chosen to grace us with her voice instead.

    Honestly, I can’t get enough of this. Where can I purchase this artist’s music?

  14. Brian Durkin :

    There is no way this guy didn’t learn how to play without listening to Charlie Hunter. :)

  15. Zach :

    What happened to the link? It said that they took the video down.

  16. Paul Irish :

    I’ve emailed the band. Hopefully they can get another mirror up. In the meantime i don’t really have any videos of theirs to replace it with. :(

  17. vimspot :

    I really liked this video. I bought their EP here
    it’s good though visite de recoin is my favorite of the 4 songs I have.

    I’m happy I grabbed the mp3 off youtube for visite de recoins before it was pulled (not sure why). I can’t find a place where you can buy this song, but if you want the mp3, feel free to email me at the [name for this comment]
