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.

Oiseaux-Tempête’s forthcoming album

our favourite birds are currently working on a new album recorded for the most part in beirut, with the collaboration of Mondkopf’s Paul Régimbeau, along with G.W. Sok, Karkhana’s Sharif Sehnaoui and Mendelson’s Sylvain Joasson, among others. expected in march 2017 on Sub Rosa, their third opus was announced by this inviting teaser directed by Grégoire Orio & Grégoire Couvert (As Human Pattern).

Régimbeau will also contribute to the anticipated concert at Saint Merry Church that Oiseaux-Tempête have in the pipeline in november. the evening will provide the lucky attendants with a rich variety of inspiring compositions, thanks to the support of Karkhana and Moshé O’Grady.

pg.lost: view from the inside

discovering the studio of a band, gaining a real insight, is not an everyday thing. admiring a few superb posters on a room walls, representing Ghost or Khoma for instance, and enjoying two amazing songs, this is the gorgeous tv-program prepared today by pg.lost who present Off The Beaten Path and Ikaros live from their studio, taken from their latest album Versus.

an almost 15-minute reverie, in company of hooting, rough guitars, but also sirens vocals, an indisputable energy charger, definitely more enjoyable than a tedious box of vitamins.

pg.lost will join forces with Mono and Alcest, on the occasion of their forthcoming co-headlining european tour. here is the entire schedule.
