Schwarze Riesenfalter

Black butterflies crowd the midnight sky.

A beacon pierces the offshore mist with firelight.

We awaken to the flutter of bats, a passage of hawks.

An icy wind of bleached birches and synthesized snow.

Rude chorus of fragmented mouths submerged in rumor.

The king lies deposed, un-dead.

There is little controversy in suggesting that all that music consists of, essentially, is structured sound, and sound, to skirt its physics for want of both competency and space, represents the audible portion of an elapsed period.

And another of my all time favourite records is back again. What is going on? This is the most damaged 'psych' record we know. Hairy, almost nothing, something? Frightening. Beautiful. Again, essential.

Third in a series of ten reissues of the cult French underground Futura label. 

Semool were the trio of Philippe Martineau, Olivier Cauquil and Rémy Dédé Dreano. They recorded “Essais” between 1969 and 1971.

Second in a series of ten reissues of the cult French underground Futura label. 

Recorded in december 1970, “With (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger)” is the first album by Mahogany Brain, led by street poet / underground film maker Michel Bulteau and Patrick Geoffrois. It shares the same raw aesthetics with the Velvet Underground and offers 12 savage and unhinged songs of distorted guitars with crude lyrics.

Legitimate re-issue of one of my all time favourite records. Equal parts sonic creep, beauty and hilarity. Essential.

Lea Bertucci's debut album Resonance Shapes LP from 2013 is an overlooked gem that caused a small stir at the IDDB office. On this much more stripped down affair the New York-based artist changed her bass clarinet for an old alto sax and the two cuts delivered here are somewhat different, but just as intimate and perplexing. 10 mesmerizing minutes that owes just as much to free jazz skronk as it does to contemporary sound art.
