I met Emile five years ago when he was putting on shows in Paris – I think he was like 22 at the time or something. He was also putting out incredible records and tapes (Ausmuteants, Maraudeur, Marbled Eye) on his label, Gone With the Weed. Today, while maintaining the scene in Paris, he is also making lofi, bedroom pop under the name Music On Hold. Since putting out the impressive first tape, Episode 1, on GWTW a couple years ago, as well as booking shows and running a label, Music On Hold has made another great album ready to be released this year. 30 Minutes Of… is out February 2nd on Born Bad Records.
