DARK RADISH "s/t":

[image]

Dark Radish was born from three improv-musicians from bands like Jean-Louis, Sidony Box, April Fishes, Ueno Park – Manuel Adnot Solo, Bribes 4 and Coax Collective. The trio defends this self-titled debut EP as a contorted power trio invoking free music forms and post-rock. Dark Radish offers raw music, both brilliant and incongruous rhythms and song structures. Dark Radish is Manuel Adnot on eight string guitar, Joachim Florent on upright bass and Yann Joussein on drums.

AS A NEW REVOLT "Speechless":

[image]

The hardcore of As A New Revolt is giving birth to a new drum/key/machine/vocals duo with a hip hop flow. Manu Barrero(vocals, machines) and Julien Lhuillier (drums) produce wild sounds tinted with punk energy.

Those two sound maniacs mix the vibes of the US west coast together with the UK hip hop of the late 90s. "Above the ground drum sounds, electrical guitare-like Keys, sound sytem bass beat literally splitting your belly and a maniac lead vocal on top of all this". That is how Speechless can be defined. As A New Revolt builds a harsh sound, carved with guitars, whose inflexible rhythmic (electro-bass-drums) underlines the musical landscape.

WE LIKE WE "Next to the entire All":

[image]

Next to the entire All is an astonishing work by Danish experimental sound quartet We like We, consisting of Katrine Grarup Elbo (violin), Josefine Opsahl (cello), Sara Nigard Rosendal (percussion) and Katinka Fogh Vindelev (voice).

Although classically trained, all four share a desire for exploring, experimenting and shaping a sound of their own, something which is truly present on this album. Both instrumentation and composition feel glued together with an abundant sense of playfulness and vision. The record starts with the beautiful I’m not for More which sets the tone for the 10 pieces, hurling you back and forth in a whirlwind of sound and musical intuitivity.

Genre bending as the record can be, it can be seen as somewhat of a contrasting work – as much of northern folk traditions as of an avant-classical work in the spirit of György Ligeti and Meredith Monk. Forest Sketches, as an example, starts with minimal woodblocks and percussive rattling while slow building violins, cello and vocals pull themselves in through the unknown before bursting into a Pagan sounding wormhole of screams and looped cellos. The piece ends with minimal vocal sound scapes fading away into almost pure silence. It could be mirrored with a merger of both the opening and closing scene of Kubrick’s classic movie 2001 - creating the sense of beginning of humanity versus the far future, with abstractation and the unknown.

Next to the entire All is both a mind bending and grounded piece of work fitting naturally next to other Sonic Pieces releases such as Hauschka & Hildur Gudnadottir’s Pan Tone or Christoph Berg’s Conversations, while adding a northern minimalism. A record as hard to shake off as it is to describe.

NI "dedoda":

[image]

dedoda – NI’s third album: complex compositions, noise attacks, bursts of laughter. Still three electric guitars and drums, still delightfully tricky and warm-heartedly brutal, still wacky and brilliant.

NI does not play riffs. The band offsets and stacks, metarocks and subrocks, sets up 4D ornaments, hatches poltergeists and allows them to soar. Never before has there been so much singing. All four band members join in, barking finely minced syllables. In between two beats they produce a dada and deliver it as a Gregorian chant. In a canon, the compact and minimalistic Austrian language becomes sound poetry.

NI are still on the move and therefore remain true to themselves. They are a synthesis of the arts. With each new album there are new stage outfits. This time it’s dark red overalls, from which white geometric figurations emerge. Topped off by matching hats. dedoda shoots benignly into the listener’s brain, turns up the corners of the listener’s mouth, opens the heart of both humans and spirit.

KAI REZNIK "Awkward Motions":

[image]

Not much information is provided about Kai Reznik, except that he is a musician from France and has two albums released under his name. Kai Reznik is the founding concept to a solo career recording soundtracks for short films. The nine track album Awkward Motions is a deep movement into ambient and industrial electronica recorded with multiple keyboard tracks and vocals features. There is a lot to indicate a new wave in influence he maintained from the outset of his recording career, and there are frequent examples of colder and darker auras. Awkward Motions plays like an outlandish dream, not exactly a nightmare but certainly an ethereal wandering that leaves you disturbed upon awakening. As indicated below, some songs have guest vocals from Heliogabale vocalist Sasha Andrès. Andrès makes her appearance on L.A.S.T., which stands out for its gothic overtones and additional keyboard sounds adjoining themes of techno and electronica. M.A.D. appears on the second track Beautiful Agony and on You Killed Me First placing emphasis on the techno and electronica sounds as well as vocal and keyboard effects like a bedlamite Escape From New York. At first you won’t think the acoustics differ much from one another, but a second and a third listen will reveal intimate details not noticed previously. Awkward Motions needs to be discovered closely and thoroughly.

PHILIPPE PETIT "Buzzing But Not Hung Up On Hip":

[image]

Philippe Petit is interested in soundtracks; even if he creates original music he’d rather be introduced as a «musical travel agent» than a composer. Petit uses a Cymbalum, an Electric Psalterion, computer and synths to build up electronic layers, process acoustic- and field recordings.

To support the his recordings Philippe Petit likes to move various glasses, or percussive objects, and take advantage of vinyl material to fondle released sounds. As a journalist for various magazines and radio as well as a musical activist, Petit has celebrated his 25th year of sharing his musical passions as the man behind the cult labels Pandemonium Rdz. and BiP_HOp. Petit has assembled what people call a dream-team of collaborators, working with: Lydia Lunch, Foetus, Murcof, Kumo, Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Cosey Fanni Tutti, My Brightest Diamond, Sybarite, Pantaleimon, Graham Lewis (Wire), Barry Adamson, Scanner, Mira Calix, Kammer immer Kollektief, Guapo, Leafcutter John, James Johnston, Simon Fisher Turner, Justin Broadrick and many more...

TERMINAL CHEESECAKE "Cheese Brain Fondue (Live in Marseille)":

[image]

2013 saw the triumphant return of London’s Terminal Cheesecake. The band formed in London in 1988 and stumbled through two EPs, five LPs and an unreleased Peel session before they called it a day in 1994.

Terminal Cheesecake are back as a tightly knitted tea cosy of a unit, after a not-so-short break deeply contemplating space and time in the further reaches of the eastern outposts of the capital and beyond. The time is right for the return to the stages of this wonderful planet and for a fresh assault on the senses of the
willing public.

Cheese Brain Fondue: Live In Marseille was recorded live - in Marseille - at L’Embobineuse in October 2015. The whole thing is a massive, multi-coloured, fuzzy triumph. For one thing, it captures the band as a truly immense sonic force to be reckoned with. The whole thing sounds dynamic and vast with the murmured rumblings at the start of opening improv Fake Loop working their way effortlessly to a giant screaming climax and the opening drum smashes and six-string abuse of Bladdersack.

Cheese Brain Fondue: Live In Marseille really deserves to rank alongside the lofty likes of Hawkwind’s Space Ritual as one of the all time great live psychedelic rock recordings. It overflows with heavy energy and cosmic laughter. Throughout hard rocking wig outs, wave after wave of fuzz seeps from amps, and laps the stage like the Mediterranean on France’s southern shores. Terminal Cheesecake are back, and quite possibly better than ever before.

LES LEKIN "Died With Fear":

[image]

A room in an industrial area in Salzburg, Austria. Tuesday evening, 8 pm. After the neon suns have gone out, only candles light the place. You hear the high-pitched whine of the fully opened Marshall, the Ampeg fan going at full blast, and the rattle of a snare drum. The whine builds up more and more into a room- filling feedback noise. A fist hitting the body of the bass fills the space between with deep frequencies. The cymbals' attack becomes louder and louder. Then... silence... a stroke at the snare- drum. Three people throw out all they have, all they are, and all of what they have in them. Inspired by the desert and the moon, sand and space. Welcome to the heavy-psych-three-piece-noise-machine that is Les Lekin.

Died With Fear new album from Les Lekin will be available from Tonzonen Records on limited edition blue marbled gatefold vinyl of 500 copies with download code as well as on CD and digital.

HELIOGABALE "Ecce Homo":

[image]

Active since 1992, Heliogabale have always been able to renew themselves, to surprise and to be reborn from ashes. Collaborations with other musicians and sound engineers (Karl Blake, Fisherman, Didier Petit, Eugene Robinson, Steve Albini, Iain Burgess among others) and the artistic choices have always
given Heliogabale a special status in the musical landscape in France.

Heliogabale is a Paris band whose road met Steve Albini’s, Al Sutton’s or the late Iain Burgess (rip). This time they stopped by the doorstep of French sound engineers Jean- Charles Versari and Al Sutton who recorded and mixed down the band’s seventh album to be released in September 2017. The mastering was done at the Climax studio by Rémi Salvador. Since the beginning in 1992, Heliogabale have been using change and evolution as keywords of the musical identity of the band; each album was a break with the previous one, highlighting a unique style.

Ecce Homo, the new opus contains 9 songs (for the first time ever the songs are sung in French) and a new line-up with a new bassist (Brice Pirotais), dressed up in shadows and lights: some sort of an inventory, polaroid cuts from lives where gymnopedical melodies intervene in the band’s rhythmical universe. And as Sasha Andrès sings: «Je ne suis pas, tu n'es pas non plus, on est plus, il me semble, non, plus du tout, calibré (I'm not, you're not either, we're more, it seems to me, no, not at all, calibrated)»
