Chef Menteur's new album "Force Majeure" released
"Force Majeure" is the brand-new album from Chef Menteur, and it’s the follow-up to the epic double LP "East of the Sun & West of the Moon."


Force Majeure was recorded live to analog tape in one day and mixed in another at the Living Room recording studio, an amazing space across the river in scenic Algiers.

The first edition of this album (released on Waypoint Tapes) is on cassette only for now, and can be bought from Aquarius Records in San Francisco and a few shops in NOLA.
