Chef Menteur BPR-044
East of the Sun & West of the Moon
Several years in the making, Chef Menteur has released the epic tone-poem known as East of the Sun & West of the Moon, their most complete and ambitious work yet, with nods to kosmiche, neo-psychedelia, 60's British folk and Warp-style electronica as well as the ambient/space foundation they've always built on. The vinyl packaging has to be seen to be believed. Each gatefold jacket is hand-printed and numbered by artist Thomas Peri. Super-collectible limited edition of 200. Also available as a digital download (comes included with vinyl).

Chef Menteur BPR-028
The Answer's In Forgetting
The sophomore release from Chef Menteur looks to be on the way to be as critically acclaimed as their debut. Recorded in their recently completed studio, it features drone-heavy sounds with killer tunes and fantastic artwork by Miranda Lake. The first full length album to feature Dan Haugh. "Chef Menteur’s coming into their art and doing things no one else has.” —Jason Songe, Antigravity Magazine

Chef Menteur BPR-010
We Await Silent Tristero's Empire
The debut full-length album (after a series of EP's) from Chef Menteur is an instrumental epic released shortly before Hurricane Katrina that finds the band at its darkest and most psychedelic: an epic and heady journey into deep watery spaces that includes filmic soundscapes, organ grooves, eastern-tinged melodies, heavy guitars, ambient pastorals, and more than a few dark moments. The culmination of two years of homemade sonic experimentation on lo-fi recorders by Chef Menteur in their (now lost) tiny New Orleans studio.
