‘Fall of the Supers’ by Niwouinwouin, Costumes by Jean Jullien

Three of my favorite things in the world are design, music, and comic books, so when French wünderkind Jean Jullien let me know about his newest project, a culmination of those three things, I knew it was gonna be awesome. The project is for a band called Niwoiunwouin, which I haven’t the faintest idea of how to pronounce, and their newest release called Fall of the Supers.

Jean decided to go all out on this project, crafting full costumes as a part of the packaging for the album. I think they look really rad, like some sort of pop art comic turned real. I’m not 100% sure, but I think the fella you see above is Jean himself, though hopefully I haven’t doomed Jean by revealing his secret identity! As for the album, well, it’s not quite my taste. It’s really abstract and electronic, kind of scattered all over the place, but I did enjoy some of the songs. To give a listen for yourself, click here.

    Why is it whenever I see a word I can’t pronounce my eyes just skip over it and I make something up?

    This project is therefore called “Neeearwoolin”. Nice.

    it’s kind of like mark mothersbaugh from the life aquatic. or the video game music from jaws.

    Hello! thanks a lot for talking about this release.

    Actually Niwouinwouin is Jean Julliens’s brother, and they already worked together on different projects. You can also download soundtracks to Jean short movies on http://www.niwouinwouin.com (hopefully, Bobby, you can find more quiet music there ;))

    The tracks from this release are mainly heavy electronic dancefloor tracks, with a taste for noisy basslines, and a second degree that makes it even more fun to listen. Jean’s artwork brings a lot to the record athmosphere.

    If you have some time, check our other free release on our website, and drop us a line!

    Best,
    yan
