“At once fascinating and bizarre, Flotation Toy Warning combine traditional folk instruments, murky breakbeats and a hyper-appealing pick-and-mix vocal style in their captivating sonic stew.” Rock Sound
“The quirkiness of The Flaming Lips with a bit of Granddaddy Americana and the production values of Mercury Rev circa ‘Deserter’s Songs’, left to stew in its own dolor just long enough to turn gently maudlin and you have some idea what flying machine test pilots and quirky inventors get up to when they aren’t flying or inventing things. A good record, but definitely not one to listen to before you head out to the pub.” Soundsxp.com
“swirls of guitar, looped samples and beautifully bereft vocals to beguiling lo-fi effect, recalling both DIY Flaming Lips and the glitchyside of Sparklehorse……Buckled but beauteous, psychedelic Victoriana with beats” Time Out
Happy release day Raoul Vignal
From 2010 to this day, 26-year-old Raoul Vignal has been playing authentic, modern folk music. Forming the essence of his compositions, soothing vocals and delicate fingerpicking played on alternate tunings are Vignal’s trademark. His music has often been described by audience as “evocative” and “mesmering”.
His debut album "The Silver Veil" is now available. You can stream it online via Goldfakepaint and any other digital store. And last but not least, you can buy the album (CD / Vinyl / Digital) from our webstore.
"The Silver Veil is an enriching and refined piece of craftsmanship and among the most rewarding acoustic guitar records in recent memory." **** The Skinny
"Calling to mind the delicate folk offerings of Nick Drake, Benoît Pioulard or Kings Of Convenience, it comes as no surprise that Raoul Vignal’s music has been so well received." Folk Radio UK

Talitres welcomes french artist Raoul Vignal | New album "The Silver Veil" out in april
Shortly after the birth of his solo project at the age of 20, Raoul Vignal started performing live in venues and festivals throughout France, giving him a strong stage experience as a solo musician, whether playing for a small audience in intimate venues or captivating a larger crowd. In 2013, he left his hometown Lyon for a 2-year-long stay in Berlin, where he has been very active in the singer / songwriter scene, frequently performing in the numerous venues the city has to offer.
Recorded late 2015 at Klangbild Studios in Berlin, with sound engineer Martin J. Fielder, "The Silver Veil" (out on Talitres, april 07th, 2017) is Raoul Vignal’s debut full-length. The 10 tracks featured on the LP demonstrate an intense acoustic style, carried by pared-down arrangements, with a slight nostalgic touch.
"Hazy Days" is the first single taken from the upcoming album. The ethereal video was shot in the beautiful countryside surrounding Lyon, cooperating with up-and-coming photographer, and long-time friend, Anne-Laure Etienne.
