Puzzle – Barcella

When I listened to this album I felt like I was in a French cafe that had just been inundated by circus folk. There are a few quieter pop tunes but it is also pretty hectic in places. I enjoyed the raucous instrumentation and collaborative vocals but this is not music made for cycling in the peaceful countryside. Fav track – Sur la route.

Cheerful and energetic, like our friend Florence who recommended it!

I only have a few secret weapons for helping me climb. One is to sneakily put my heaviest stuff into Baden’s  panniers, another is entering a deep, trance-like state thus leaving my body, the third is my climbing playlist.
