Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones

Dale Cooper is a darkjazz band from Brest in France - one of the pride and joys of the Denovali roster they have been releasing pure gems for the last decade. It is now notoriously hard to find copies of their earlier albums on wax so snap them up if you ever come across them. 

Their albums often feature the vocal hauntings of Alicia Merz (Birds of passage) and always incorporate long electronic infused dark droning passages to create atmospheres similar to the smoke filled noir bars of yesteryear.
