Cheval Sombre – “When Summer was in my Heart” (Fractured Air Guest Mix)
Cheval Sombre is the New York-based artist Christopher Porpora, who since 2009 has released a pair of studio albums and a plethora of limited-run records via independent labels such as Trensmat, Static Caravan, Fruits de Mer and Sonic Cathedral. The long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s “Mad Love” (Sonic Cathedral) is a forthcoming release, together with this July’s “Had Enough Blues”, a limited 7” via the Knoxville Tennessee-based independent label Fat Elvis Records. “Had Enough Blues” is a moving, soul-stirring folk lament fittingly made for these hard modern times of political uncertainty and volatility. The E.P. is once again mixed and produced by the legendary Pete Kember (Sonic Boom, SPECTRUM, Spacemen 3). A new full-length LP of covers recorded alongside longtime friend and frequent collaborator Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna) is also a forthcoming release.
