Bonne Humeur Provisoire: Marek [VINYL] (BeCoq)

A very odd album of experimental rock and mutilated folk forms that they refer to as "A sort of traditional music from a later country in a less faraway time", from French percussionist Bertrand Fraysse with vocalist Miha, using repetition and simple forms that build to strangely dense electronic environments, with a clear DIY and peculiar attitude; great fun!

Bertrand Fraysse : "I'm working at lieu-commun, in Toulouse, France. It's a contemporary art space in which I have a recording studio, and artistic residency, where I got all my instruments and invite people to record their and/or our music.

I play music for around 10 years, fascinated by a wide range of sounds and musics. I'm percussionist in a two saxophone / one drum band called PIAK. A trance duo called nibul (bandcamp) A crazy trio with DJ Urine and Yann is the Bastard called Duck Hunters playing concerts mainly in Toulouse and around. (France)

I'm curating an ever growing compilation of music from everywhere too."

Unusual approaches to rock song and instrumentals from this French duo of Apolline Schöser & Nocola Henry in collaboration with Valentine Noiret, Daniel Dariel on Japanese vocals, Louis Claus on Indian flute and Marie-Laure Gucciardi for poetic writing in Italian, &c.; peculiar and compelling, somehow reminiscent of Etron Fou...
Gross, Jean-Philippe / Golden Oriole
Optical Cadillac / Golden Oriole [VINYL 10-inch]
(BeCoq)
A split 10" vinyl album of two very different works: first French sound artist Jean-Philippe Gross in a sonic assault of garish rhythmic electronic persistence and noise; then the Golden Oriole instrumental rock duo of Kristoffer Riis on guitar and Thore Warland on drums in a compelling work of grooving structure with diverse percussive interaction.
Konrad Strumpfel & The Set
refrescoscopio [CASSETTE]
(Music a la Coque)
An unissued album from Bavarian experimenter & songwriter Konrad Strumpfel and "The Set", the Czech duo of Herbert Lukundra & Josif Afkak, who added their contributions to Strumpfel's work which had been sent to them by post, the strengthening of the "Iron Curtain" between the USSR & Europe in the late 80s then prohibiting the release of their collaboration.

Gryke Pyje
Collision And Coalescence [VINYL w/ DOWNLOAD]
(Mappa)
Composers and performers Jani Hirvonen and Johannes Schebler create a complex universe in sound & melody, a veritable forest of sound referencing global and spiritual environments, using warm instrumental sources, field recordings, world percussion and extended use of the studio in a satisfying series of journeys with a mysteriously transcendental and devotional feeling.
Toys'R Noise
Manivole [VINYL]
(BeCoq)
Using toys and handmade instruments alongside guitar, bass, synths, plundered recordings and electronics, the French Toys'R'Noise trio are a live performing group that borrows from electro-beat rock forms with overtones of IDM/ambient forms, building extended sections and then amusing with quick-witted sections that bridge a clear love of the music.

Marhaug, Lasse
Void [7" VINYL]
(BeCoq)
Two dark works of sound creating a mysterious chasm of drones, pulsations, electronic stretches, and mysterious percussive engines, a strange pair of recordings that definitely fit the title of this 7" record from Norwegian sound experimenter Lasse Marhaug.
Loubatiere / Warnecke
Couleurs Chimeriques
(BeCoq)
An album of rich aural environments contrasted with clamorous action and disintegrating sound from the duo of French percussionist Rodolphe Loubatiere performing on snare drum and Berlin-based sound sculptor Pierce Warnecke, their second album as a duo presenting a sophisticated and diverse set of compositions that both entrance and disrupt their listeners.
