about

"Beautiful" - Robert Wyatt

"Dazzled and delighted" - Van Dyke Parks


The Ocean Tango is the result of a joyful summertime collaboration between French pop craftsman Louis Philippe and Swedish art-pop conceptualists Testbild! An intoxicating blend of chamber pop and chamber jazz, the album is awash with trumpets, vibraphones, flutes, strings, harpsichord, Fender Rhodes, nylon guitar and the lushest of harmonies - all wrapped around elegantly tooled, constantly surprising melodies. Imagine a late-night session featuring the Beach Boys, Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Taylor and Kenny Wheeler, with a few electronic flourishes from Brian Eno, and you’re getting close to the vibe . . .

Originally released as a cd on Wonder Records in 2010. Remastered and slightly edited for vinyl in 2019.
