Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche want to play! Their new album Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much is a vibrant brew of ecstatic dance rock via psychedelic deserts: wordless vocals, sharp and clean guitars, irresistibly flowing rhythms. Properly trance-inducing stuff. The album is released by Constellation: the vinyl version includes a poster and a download code.
8/10 Robin Staff review, 19 January 2017
New Constellation so it’s obviously very good 10/10 let’s do this. Or, I guess I have to deliver at least as much impartiality as listening to the damn thing, so fine: Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche continues to make esoteric, hyper-emotional rock music full of all life. ‘Pas Pire Pop [I Love You So Much]’ is a record for the passionate among you, or at least those of you willing to let your passion shine: it’s all wailing into the void and howling at the moon and breaking down the barriers of your own trances.
Because ultimately, this band are a rhythmic treat: their guitar lines go up and down and across axises, the back and forth one on “Alize et Margaret” put in place as conjoined vocal wails let loose. It makes way for brasher, proggier riffs, which in themselves take on a hypnotic streak of repetition -- before breaking into black metal blastbeats. It’s a perfectly calibrated mix of discipline and disarray, as if asking you to queue for a glorious outburst.
Avec Le Soleil have my vote for Constellation’s party band, their medley of old-school prog psychedelia, Last Ex math rock and oxymoronic constraint-jamming heating up the listener before releasing them. These tracks are developed as long, symphonic dance suites, taking on multiple parts but ultimately finding their best moments in huge guitar climaxes or communal handclaps. A euphoric listen that warbles its way into your heart.
