Tsirihaka Harrivel - La Dimension

In 2017, Tsirihaka Harrivel, circus artist, multi-instrumentalist jack of all trades, begins writing this album which will become “The Dimension”, knowing already that it would form the basis of an upcoming performance. He then draws from this intended music the impetus for a narrative frame: it is in fact a soundtrack in reverse.

Tsirihaka builds the soaring atmosphere of this album around an inspiring 1983 Italian groove box featuring synthetic violins and an intriguing rhythm machine. The elliptical lyrics and the breakthroughs of sound participate in this impossible quest where any exit inevitably seems to elude.

The album was produced with Pierre Desprats (music from the films of Bertrand Mandico) who, with his experience of pop and cinema, has managed to keep the energy to several entries of this false album: association of ideas, tragic effect and illustrative music.

Techno Thriller - Decameron

Long-time friends, and trustful party partners , the Brussels duo, Techno Thriller, joins the Teenage Menopause Records family with a batch of slow and cranky misshapes.

During the past decade, we’ve linked them with the filthy EBM and chopped Indus-Techno they’re performing during massive lives, stabbing the dark rooms audiences. Two albums released on both l’Entorse and the Brussels’ pioneer Unknown Precept, integrating the C12 agency, they scoured Europe, releasing some smoky tracks, for those who love cinderblocks, leather and sweat. On the strength of this impeccable resume, they’re offering, now for Teenage Menopause, a free-reading of the Decameron: a 10 texts chronicle, by the florentine Boccace, describing the spread of the Great Plague of 1352 in his city.

While exploring the limits of new sounds, expanding electronic music, Techno Thriller looks back into their medieval influences, sharpening the blades on the literature of British authors, cutting guts on dark folk moods. The rhythms are slow, the gears are dedicated to building a dark and gloomy feeling, helped by featurings like Naomie Klaus or violinist Tamara Goukassova.

Ventre De Biche ‎– 3

Here is the third album from one of the most prolific artist of our time. From cheaptunes made from toys, to extrem noise terror, Luca’s music and art surround us from the Teenage Menopause’s early age. Further and deeper in the in-between zone, this one assumes Autotune arrangment, exploring the daily psychoses and the random paranoïa.

Once again, Luca aka Ventre de Biche releases and album on its own. Lyrics, music, sounds and arrangement, he even draws comic strips and artwork covers.

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 !
