Milkilo is the fruit, as such many bands, of jam sessions between two roommates who just wanted to play along together at night after college classes. It just takes some months to the comrades to decide that, maybe, this improvised project worth a name. It still has taken two years, a flat move and some extra practicing in their new rehearsal headquarters, Ursa Minor, to our two beginners to finally fix their first songs on a record. Antilustre split with long-time friends from Maria Magdalena was out and the road machine engaged. Never limited by any kind of genre but the ones which give them some pleasure to play, the duo started to tour as much as possible across Europe, and pursued its style maturation through 3 EP since then (LIV/E/P, Ostéologie des Pères, Half Of An Atlas). 2017 will be a key year in the band history, with the release of their first proper album, Atlas.

Milkilo - Atlas LP

Re-questioned over a year and a half, the band’s songs were finally fixed on tapes in January 2017, after a session of pre-production (December 2015, Ursa Minor, with Jonas Martinière) and two tours (Europe in January 2016, Spain and Portugal in October 2016). Welcomed in LE 23, Poitiers, France by Tom Dherin (Benighted, Poumon…) the band had, for the first time, a proper time to record and re-thinks the songs in real studio conditions. And it worth the shot. Deepest, more intense, more thoughtful, the album is clearly the most ended recording of the band which really worked hand-to-hand with sound-engineer Tom Dherin to enhance the duet’s sound (and at the same time, its pedalboard [wink to the pedal geeks]). They also kept some time to re-embrace their first love: improvisation, whose traces are audible in the album’s interludes (ATLEAST, ATHOME, ATOMS, ATLAST). After two months of goings and comings for the mix, the album was finally mastered by Nick Zampiello (New Alliance East, MA, USA) who already worked on the band’s previous efforts.

Record Release Show:
