96 arbore une filiation assumée avec les albums Saravah de Brigitte Fontaine, d’Areski et de Jacques Higelin, revue 2019. C’est à dire, en zappant totalement les règles de la variété visqueuse d’ici pour parler autrement d’ici et maintenant. On va citer Godard, et dire « La culture est la règle, l’art est l’exception.» On y est et c’est carrément bon ! (Merci L'Autre Quotidien)

Ramuntcho Matta is back! Order CD/LP/DL 👉 urlz.fr/9Mt9 📌 Procurez vous l'album dès ce soir en exclusivité à l'occasion du vernissage de l'exposition Un Marchand, Un Artiste aux Puces de Clignancourt! {fr} Le poète, producteur et artiste visuel Ramuntcho Matta signe son retour à la chanson avec 96. 96, parce qu’il lui a fallu 96 heures pour enregistrer ce nouvel album. Si ce disque est le résultat d'une fulgurance, Ramuntcho précise qu’il y a derrière bien des années de vie pour en arriver à un album où la spontanéité se mêle à l’intime. Homme de l’ombre derrière le succès de Toi mon toit d’Elli Medeiros, Ramuntcho Matta aime ce rôle de mettre en lumière les artistes, comme il a pu le faire avec Brion Gysin, Don Cherry et bien d’autres. Mais cette fois-ci, il s’accompagne lui-même pour ce disque qui sonne très nineties, avec un clin d’œil à Bill Laswell pour le jeu de basse, mais aussi terriblement contemporain. Le disque nous plonge dans un univers sombre, comme si Bashung s’était perdu dans un film de Lynch. Parallèlement à la sortie de l’album, Ramuntcho Matta et Akuphone rendent disponible l'intégralité de la discographie de l’artiste sur Bandcamp. Chaque vendredi depuis le début de l’année un album est mis en ligne et est disponible à l’écoute et au téléchargement. Pochette réalisée par Ramuntcho Matta. Notes et dessins inédits de l’artiste issues de son journal de bord « Desseins du jour ». {en} The poet, producer and visual artist Ramuntcho Matta is coming back to music with 96. 96 – as 96 hours were needed to record this new album. Ramuntcho points out that behind this dazzling recording, years of experience enabled him to achieve the mix of spontaneity and intimacy of the album. He was the man behind the success of Eli Medeiros’ Toi mon toit. As a matter of fact, Ramuntcho Matta likes to put artists in the spotlight, as he has done with Brion Gysin, Don Cherry and many others. However this time he decided to put himself in the spotlight, with this record which sounds very 90s – with a wink to Bill Laswell for the bass – but still very contemporary. The album unveils a dark atmosphere, as if Bashung had lost himself in a Lynch film. Alongside the album release, Ramuntcho Matta and Akuphone have decided to make the entire discography of the artist available on Bandcamp. Each Friday since the beginning of this year, an album has been put online and made available for listening and downloading. Record sleeve designed by Ramuntcho Matta. Unpublished notes and drawings from the artist’s logbook « Desseins du jour ».

Forthcoming on Akuphone (AKU1015) Władysław Komendarek - Retrospective (LP/DL) => urlz.fr/9Jrr Akuphone presents a compilation of Władysław Komendarek, the Polish genius of synthesizers. This selection comes from tree albums released between 1987 and 1990, a very important political and social period in Poland, marked by the last convulsions of communism. Komendarek’s music offers a unique patchwork of synthesizer sounds, “art of noise” and cosmic flights far beyond the realm of conventions that dominated the Polish electronic music scene at the time. It brings a weird mixture of electronic, proto-techno, eurodance and progressive music. Instrumentalist and composer, Władysław Komendarek (born in 1948 in Sochaczew, Poland) was a member of the legendary group Exodus in the 1973-1983 period. But the pioneering achievements of Komendarek in the field of electronic music were revealed with glory in the 1980s with the start of his solo career. Equipped with various analogue synthesizers –even some of his own manufacture–, he began to explore the sounds of the Earth and the Cosmos. Intensely drawn to electronic instruments, he tried to use them to their maximum capacity. For over forty years now, he has been a restless and tireless seeker of beyond-the-earthly sounds hiding in synthesizers which he has tried to reveal to the world. Thanks to their richness, the liner notes provide an immersion into the Polish electronic music scene. Written by the musical journalist Łukasz Komła, liner notes include a text on Władysław Komendarek, Pioneer and rebel by choice, a Brief history of electronic music in Poland, a short biography and a paper on the Social and political context in Poland in the 80s. #electronic #eurodance #ebm #synthpop #techno #industrial #progressiverock #DIY #synthmadness #poland #vinyl #akuphone

"Ukranian/Japanese duo Tamayugé hex the trippy headz at Paris’ Akuphone with a ‘marishly cute but f**ked up invocation of ‘Baba Yaga’, the witch-like Slavic folklore figure. Check for strangest feels in the murky Finnish psych styles of ‘Chornei, what sounds like Phew duelling Elvin Brandhi on ’Tamago’, or a Breadwoman baked from infected rye in ‘Herbert Song’ " (Boomkat.com) => akuphone.com/catalog/agXjSC6rbaI#content tamayuge.bandcamp.com/album/baba-yaga

"Sublime sounds from Indonesia – a set of work that mixes older gamelan modes with contemporary vocals – with a result that's completely amazing! If you like gamelan as much as we do, the approach here will still hold you rapt – as there's plenty of percussion and gong interplay at the core of most tunes – but the addition of vocals makes things even more compelling, because the lyrics of the tunes feel more like narrative passages than traditional vocals – and make for a transcendent quality we really didn't expect!"

"Baba Yaga has a surprise in store at every turn, beginning with the knock out ‘Ame Nochi Hare’ – a skittish, patchwork piece of avant-garde glossolalia that sounds like a cross between a demented Miyazaki soundtrack and a traditional Slavic folk tale. Needless to say, further investigation is essential." The Vinyl Factory thevinylfactory.com/features/10-new-albums-to-look-out-for-in-april/

In the event of an actual apocalypse scenario, most people typically think of how they will adapt in terms of survival; rarely does doomsday prep factor in time for preserving hobbies, passions or general enjoyment. Yet survival involves more than just acquiring nourishment and shelter. To survive also requires determination and hope, both qualities empowered through a person’s own desires and dreams. Take away the inspiration to enjoy life and you leave a person without a will to live. spectrumculture.com/2019/03/25/praed-doomsday-survival-kit/ Buy : akuphone.com/catalog/1pRd1timEEwy#content

In four parts, including two treks over the 15 minute mark, Paed Conca and Raed Yassin conjure a unique mixture of street-level Chaabi dance music and far flung influence from jazz and psychedelia.

Must admit we were sold on the description in the liner notes which boast, or should that be warn, ‘ …….. the mysterious and unsettling Tamayugé’s universe is somewhere between Phew, Laurie Anderson and The Residents’. This is the delightfully unsettling sonic ghost shell that is ‘Baba Yaga’, a debut full length from the already aforementioned duo Tamayuge for the French imprint, Akuphone who in their weird wisdom have happily pressed up a thousand copies of this contagious curio on vinyl. Three tracks loom on the preview pane of their bandcamp page, a most incredible exercise in isolationist eerie for Tamayuge draw from a varied and eclectic choice of generic pools and references, sometimes found chamber gloomed and spiritwalking some petrified ghost glimmered fog bound woodland as on the darkly drawing mysterio ‘Herbert Song’, itself wandering wearily into shadowlands occupied by both the Hare and the Moon and Glissando with just a trace element of Dead Can Dance. That said, it seems ‘Herbert Song’ is something of a sore thumb for elsewhere on both ‘Ame Nochi Hare’ and ‘Jyu Hantai’ there’s a playful peculiar operating in the backwaters which on the latter mentioned cut, morphs and manifests with the utilising of vintage electronic mediums, to carve disruptive and dislocated fractures of skittish torch pop embellished with a raft of streams of sonic consciousness. For us though, its on ‘Ame Nochi Hare’ where all the weird ear resource and unsettling surrealism is located, something we’d like to think that ought to first port of call, be of interest to the fans and folks at Bearsuit Records alike, for here there’s that same innocently queasy awkwardness attaching where frankly nothing really makes sense and you feel as though your chasing down rabbit holes whereupon sparsely veiled sounds from 50’s sci-fi trip oddly to sepia dream weaves and the kind of dysfunctional skip blip kookiness that was once the trademark groove of Pop Off Tuesday.

This release brings us once again to Southeast Asia, with a stopover in the Indonesian archipelago – to the region of Sunda in western Java. As its name suggests, this collection immerses us in the vibes of Sundanese nights at the turn of the 1980s. During the post-independence climate of the 1960s, Presidents Sukarno and Suharto encouraged artists to renew and innovate traditional Indonesian art forms in an attempt to limit and control the spread of Western music - which was banned from broadcasting in 1961. This policy saw a revival of traditional musical styles like gamelan degung, and the emergence of Indonesian singing genres: jaipong and pop sunda. Recorded between 1978 and 1985, this unique and surprising selection presents some of the most popular artists of the time, such as Nano S. and Tati Saleh. It is richly documented by Southeast Asian music specialist Degay Delpeuch Edouard. Lyrics and their translations are included, as well as a download code. Great artwork by Hadrien Degay Delpeuch. #Jaipong #PopSunda #Indonesia #Gamelan #Folk #sundanesemusic #sunda #java #akuphone #newrelease #limitededition #vinyl

Blend of experimental music, creepiness melancholia and kitschy tones, this surprising collaboration release his first album Baba Yaga. At the head of: Maya Kuroki and Tamara Filyavich, a Japanese and a Ukrainian now based in Montreal. Maya Kuroki's phantasmagoric vocals and dreamy guitar added to Tamara Filyavich's team of electronic ghosts fresh out of her nightmares and invite is to a strange ritual, between tormented performance and feminist ceremony. Like Baba Yaga, an ambivalent character of the Slav Mythology, both part of Japanese and Ukrainian cultures, Tamayugé’s music brings scary and exciting shivers and open to an enigmatic imaginary. The mysterious and unsettling Tamayuge’s universe is somewhere between Phew, Laurie Anderson and The Residents! #Electronic #Avantgarde #Experimental #Chiptune #Abstract #minimal #synthpop
