8/10 Brett Staff review, 26 March 2010

It was kind of a surprise to me that this is Sylvain Chauveau's first album in five years. He's one of those guys who always seems to be about, y'know? That said, I've never really investigated his stuff properly so you'll have to pardon my ignorance when I say that I've not heard him sing before. This one's immediately making me think of the collaborations between Alva Noto and Ryuchi Sakamoto - piano heavy, half neoclassical and half electronic, with machine hums cuddling up to sweet snatches of melody. His vocals are fine in of themselves and the idea of throwing snatches of traditional songcraft into this sort of context is an interesting one in theory but personally I'm finding them a bit distracting in practice.. I dunno, I can appreciate this and really like aspects of it but I'm not really managing to get into it as a whole. Kudos for trying something different, mind.
