The first new release for 2017 on Constellation: Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much by kraut-rock ensemble Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche has just been announced.
Picking up where 2014’s Zubberdust! left off, the new ten track collection “combines trance rock and audio collage above all — a diced and spliced approach to longform multi-movement groove music played by a stripped down quartet of two guitars, bass and drums, synched to pre-recorded electronics and musique concrète”.
An initial listen reveals a heady combination of styles and influences with blistering passages of raw guitars, vocal chants, off-kilter Eastern European rhythms and a funky edge. All in all an impressive release and a good start to 2017.
In the same musical area as : Can , Talking Heads (‘80-’83) , This Heat , Neu! , Stereolab , Do Make Say Think , Wooden Shjips , Darkside , Fly Pan Am
The album will be featured in podcasts over the holiday period and into the New Year.
