Eliogabal
Mo
(BeCoq)
Sharing members of the band F.A.T., the Lille, France on based quintet Eliogabal of Mael Bougeard & Sakina Abdou on saxophones, Paul Menard on guitar, Thomas Coquelet on bass and Pierre Pasquis on drums, declares themselves a free jazz rock progressif, performing complex and assertive music that takes time for contemplative musing among strong lyrical riffs, twists and turns.
Harker, Nina
Nina Harker [VINYL]
(BeCoq)
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...
Teube
Teube [CASSETTE]
(BeCoq)
Strange environments of sound from the French trio of Simon Le Vigouroux on double bass, Cyril Noël on electronics and Thomas Coquelet on electronics, in two morphing works connected by name through each side of the cassette, expeditions guided by murky rythmic elements and mutated field recordings, surrounded by rich and darkly tinged sonic elements.
Guionnet, Jean-Luc / Lunar Error
Plafond De Verre
(BeCoq)
The French Lunar Error Ensemble employ acoustic and electric instruments including reeds, piano, percussion, electric guitars, synth & computers to create complex drone and sonic environments, here performing Jean-Luc Guionnet's work for micro-variations and harmonic interference, a slowly building and massive work recorded in the resonance of the Protestant temple, in Reims.

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.
Louis Minus XVI
De Anima [VINYL]
(BeCoq)
With a decade of experience, the Flandres, Netherlands free jazz quartet of Adrien Douliez on alto saxophone, Jean Baptiste Rubin on tenor saxophone, Maxime Petit on bass, and Frederic L'Homme on drums blend ethnic and world music with assertive playing, from groove oriented to more aggressive forms, a unique voice in free playing.
Marhaug, Lasse
Void [7" VINYL]

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.
Mendoza, Ava / Maxime Petit / Will Guthrie
[7-inch VINYL]
(BeCoq)
An excellent instrumental 7-inch from the trio of Ava Mendoza on guitar, Maxime Petit on bass and Will Guthrie on drums, recording in the studio in France, four rocking pieces showing the band's chops, quirky asides, and aggressive yet clean playing style.
Guionnet, Jean-Luc / Thomas Bonvalet
Loges De Souffle
(BeCoq)
Thomas Bonvalet takes the banjo into unusual territory with Jean-Luc Guionnet performing on the organ at the protestant temple of Bergerac, France, in a beautifully terrifying album recorded during the MONC cultural arts centre's festival of avant-garde culture in 2010.
