Oiseaux-Tempête’s AL-‘AN ! الآن

alan_ot

another demonstration of rage and discontentment is expected on march 31st, another statement that will for sure meet our endless appetite for melancholic promenades and restrained expressions of anger.

AL-‘AN ! الآن (And your night is your shadow — a fairy-tale piece of land to make our dreams) is the title of Oiseaux-Tempête‘s new album that will be released in a little month on the belgian label Sub Rosa. for this third part of a journey around the Mediterranean opened in 2012, Frédéric D. Oberland and Stéphane Pigneul travelled to beirut to work with local musicians, and surrounded themselves with Mondkopf, Charbel Haber, Sharif Sehnaoui, G.W. Sok and Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, among others.

the first track unveiled, Carneval, shows sumptuous anxious patterns common to Oiseaux-Tempête and Mondkopf. this new track manifests clearly that the band keeps discovering new territories, offering their post-rock mark a brighter spectrum and a flight of genuine poetry.

No Natural Order for Pharmakon

conscious that our section dedicated to tantalize your neighbours had been neglected over the past months, we expected a genuine nugget to calm down your desire to scare your neighbours (and friends, and family) to death.

so, the return of Pharmakon may be the best way to enjoy this tremendous pleasure, since the lady announced the forthcoming release of Contact, a new album expected on Sacred Bones on march 31st. the release date of the album will mark the tenth anniversary of Margaret Chardiet’s musical project, who is well-known in the NYC underground experimental scene.

No Natural Order has just popped up and we delighted to share this industrial noise wonder. of course, it is recommended to play it very loud and to orientate your sound system towards your neighbour’s flat accordingly, in order to get the most of her threatening voice and sound.


 
in case you missed Transmission, the first excerpt of Contact, here is an opportunity to catch up.


 
Pharmakon’s upper-class doomsday music has also to be experienced live, because Chardiet’s performance is absolutely unique and very, very impressive. her powerful fury is highly spellbinding and beyond comparison. we had the chance to discover her as she opened for Swans in 2014, and this was an outstanding and unforgettable moment.

Pharmakon will precisely hit the road again to europe in april and may, and you may pre-order Contact here and here.
