Third LP for Born Bad for Guillaume Marietta, recorded just under the name Marietta, who went back to some of his favourite records from his teenage years for inspiration - Sonic Youth, Beck, Nirvana, the Beastie Boys - but also Jim O'Rourke and David Pajo. Available as a CD digipak with a 16-page booklet, or an LP with printed innersleeve + download code.

Marietta was one of the key players of the GrandeTriple Alliance De l'Est, an anarchic scene which exploded between Metz and Strasbourg in the early 2000s, fronting bands such as A.H. Kraken, Plastobe´ton and The Feeling Of Love. In 2015 he released his first solo album, 'Basement Dreams Are The Bedroom Cream', an amazing collection of 4-track twisted lullabies who got him comparisons with Syd Barrett and John Frusciante. His second LP ditched the sweet demo sounding folky weirdness, 'La Passage`re' was recorded in Los Angeles with Chris Cohen and it's a lush and mesmerizing record, like Berlin with windows wide open or a sun-drenched The Idiot.

'Prazepam St.' on the other hand is a dark and twisted record, as its title shows - a reference to an anxiolytic used for severe depression. "I have often tried to speak in my lyrics of the way the human mind works, of our contradictions, of our inner darkness, explains Marietta. And this time I wanted to bring the lexical field of drugs into my texts. Our body and mind are shaped by these substances that we use and abuse and I wanted to play with that. It's a chemical album."
