Le Corbeau is the brainchild of Øystein Sandsdalen, formerly of Serena Maneesh (4AD) Their sound bows to the vestiges of V.U. and Lynchian glamour. Noisy, seductive, and draped in velvet.
Fuzzy pop-tracks, dark spy-surf elements, impressionistic rock songs, drony instrumentals and lo-fi. Their recent album trilogy IV-V-VI on Handmade Records are widely available in EU via PIAS Nov 15th. www.facebook.com/burntvioletsky
“The mystic deities of noir have returned.” -Spill Magazine (CAN)
“The more we spin these, the more immersed we become. Combining all three together, these albums present twenty-seven mind-bending, and spell-binding compositions. Extremely captivating and memorable stuff. recommended.Top pick.” – Baby Sue LMNOP (US)
“An ever-present darkness casts a shadow throughout Moth on the Headlight, even on the album’s brighter moments. “Yvette Rosemont”, for example, features dreamy female vocals awash in a sea of guitar fuzz, except here the sea is churned into a storm, thanks to ominous brass notes. Rather than merely conjuring nostalgia, Le Corbeau makes forward-thinking shoegaze and experimental guitar music, all filtered through vintage film influences. Forget dream pop: The dark and impenetrable Moth on the Headlight is more akin to a nightmare.” – Consequence of Sound (US)
The melancholic ambient of Norn – a project that features Distel’s Peter Johan Nÿland – recounts lingering dreams of fog-ridden landscapes, desolate, monumental cities and sweltering slumber hours in the afternoon heat.
Neige Morte are an obscure entity from Lyon (FR and Göteborg (SWE), creating an icy and oppressive hypothermic musical blast. Ponderous and bizarre passages of atmospheric sound crack and give way plunging the listener into frozen riffs as they are carried off by the post-Black Metal current tearing through the heart of Neige Morte.
The cruel and nihilistic aesthetic chimes with much of the output of the French underground scene as does the experimental edge found in the five tracks served on this debut platter. Difficult to categorize neatly, Neige Morte are merely interested in engulfing the listener in the slow embrace of frozen death.
