    thanks
    Steve, it is a CD EP. Ultra-thin digipak style just barely wide enough to have a title on the spine.

    Yeah, they seem to take their time these guys at bandcamp,
    I waited half a year to get the April March CD...

    And more important, is wonderful.
    Well it looks like they learned their lesson about boycotting CD format with their last album...

    They made up for it by including the album and the previous EP on the samle disc too.

    I recently bought their catalogue from bandcamp. It is still growing on me but I quite like it. Very hard to classify. That is a good thing.
    Not too sure about the vocals though: they seem a bit lifeless. Luckily 80% is instrumental.

    They are, I believe, exactly what they intend to be; an added verbal instrument to go with the sonic mass, delivering a lingual colour which mostly isn't too essential for the total. Their particular school of singing is quite established in alternative rock quarters; the deliberately unaffected, clean, vibrato- and friction-less tonation of ostinati.

    even to a francophone, their vocals always appear cold & aloof, but I think that most of us (french speakers) comprehend that as part of their purposelu-made artistic trait

    But to switch to the stong(est) link in the chain. I am REALLY enjoying those bass lines!

    ^ The guitars are awesome as well; almost no one out there poses with those tones, timbres and economic techniques anymore. And don't get me started on the use of analog gadgets; they demonstrate how archaic gear can be applied purposefully within a contemporary pop/rock context and serve precisely the 'modernity' of it. Without even falling into the Skullhead trap.

    Pardon the distress of my digress, but I just found this mofo neaty video of the mighty Brown vs. Brown (where did they go?) grooving weirdly with incendiary lap'ah;

    Agreed! I'm a fan of just about everything they've done.

    Yeah, I have everything they've done. Great creative arc this band has had, always finding ways to make it new - and this latest song shows they continue to do that. It's a rare thing in rock music to combine a genuine exploratory approach with impeccable taste and accessible* songwriting. They are the hippest!



    * Well, fairly accessible. I thought Aquaserge might just be the avant-ish band I could turn my square friends on to, via Laisse ça être, but zero enthusiasm there so far, just head-scratching. As I’m reminded by my wife pretty much every time we have guests and I put a little music on, my compass for what normal people find to be acceptable listening is fucked.

    I have to say that in a day and age when some (admittedly great) artists tend to release whole albums of mere 28 minutes duration, I'd hoped for a full 40 minutes of new stough from the 'serges. What's the length of this one?

    Guerre is just fifteen minutes I'm afraid.
