Ventre De Biche - 333, Mi Homme, Mi Bête

Entre dessin, tentatives collectives ou Soundclouds privés, Luca Retraite, électron libre de la Triple Alliance de l’Est, produit inlassablement dans toutes les directions des OVNI qui font mouche à chaque fois. Ventre de Biche (alias romantico-ville dortoir) nous sert pour la seconde fois un pur produit de son imaginaire prolifique.

Ici, c’est la France des ronds points, des mains moites et des abris-bus qu’il s’approprie et revendique. Sur la froidure des instrus, il pose le réalisme de ses paroles qu’il enrubanne de Vocoder : une urgence à laquelle répond un vide absolu, une vacuité de l’existence sur fond de Bontempi.

Une bien belle bande son pour l’automne qui s’annonce !

Teenage Menopause: Xiu Xiu

FORGET was recorded during a period of epic productivity for Xiu Xiu. While writing FORGET, they released the lauded Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, collaborated with Mitski on a song for an upcoming John Cameron Mitchell film, composed music for art installations by Danh Vo, recorded an album with Merzbow and scored an experimental reworking of the Mozart opera, The Magic Flute. All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard before in other Xiu Xiu works.

Standout track, “Wondering” is one of the catchiest boogie pop gems in the Xiu Xiu catalog, but like much of FORGET, it still bears an underlying tension that manifests differently in each piece. From the haunted guitar duet of “Petite”, the hilariously fraught lyrics of “Get Up,” the advanced industrial boxing match of “Jenny GoGo,” or the experimental goth explosion of “Faith, Torn Apart”, all the songs, in their own ways, build to a roiling boil of a fate in vanishing.

The calligraphy on the cover translates literally to “we forget.” It bows to the universality of everything and everyone’s inevitable decline and foggy disappearance. Regarding the album title, Xiu Xiu singer Jamie Stewart said, “To forget uncontrollably embraces the duality of human frailty. It is a rebirth in blanked out renewal but it also drowns and mutilates our attempt to hold on to what is dear.” FORGET is both the palliative fade out of a traumatic’s past but also the trampling pain of a beautiful one’s decay.
