Outer Space Publicity proudly presents Libeau

Outer Space Publicity proudly presents Libeau (playing Friday in Auckland)


Outer Space is thrilled to be working with Christchurch-based artist Libeau (aka Natalie Libeau).


Libeau's debut album Led By The Moon has just been released this week, and was forged during many late nights recording on her laptop in Christchurch - and has gone much further afield than she ever imagined.


The best way to get an idea of her sound is to visit the first single from the album, 'Them Birds'. It's haunting- but uplifting - and quite unique.

**Auckland music fans - you can see and hear Libeau for yourself this Friday June 27th at the Wine Cellar. Head to the end of this page for details.


Her songs were compelling enough to draw the attention, through a mutual friend, of UK record producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Super Furry Animals, Codes). He went to work with Libeau at Christchurch's newly opened Quicksand studios, where he decided, rather than record the album from scratch, to use Libeau's home recordings as the basis of the album due to their magical quality and innocence.



Having recently seen the work of British guitarist Andy T. with Portisthead's Adrian Utley accompanying the 1922 silent film 'Nosferatu’ at Bristol's Gothic Cathedral, he felt they would be a perfect fit to complete the ensemble. After an intensive month of recording, the album resumed in the UK with contributions from the Vulcan String Quartet, renowned for their work with the Manic Street Preachers and Bill Fay, with mixing by Haver’s long term associate Clint Murphy who brought out the albums rhythmic side, expanding on the Quicksand recordings with additional beats and sonorous bass.

With mixing completed, the recordings were mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in New York, completing the album’s global journey.

And with that journey completed, the album is now available for your listening pleasure.
