3 stars This first Gilbert Artman's Lard Free is an enigmatic, colourful, weird electro-jazzy rock essay. The insistent, lugubruous bass / drum rhythm is a trademark also used in the second and third album. The jazzy improvisations dominate the ensemble and the minimalist electronic arrangements are ponctual. "Warindbaril" is curiously psychedelic with eccentric sax parts, tortured, violent sounding like guitars, monotonous hypno bass patterns. The second track delivers an evocative, dreamy like soundscape for sustained electronic pulses, ciruclar menacing effects (closed to Heldon) & cloudy melodic sax lines. The tune progressively rises from the obscurity A nice synthesis of acoustic / electronic sounds. "Acide Framboise" is a frenetic, totally agitated jazzy rock improvisation, with e-guitar experimentations, nervous, hypnotic sax parts and technical jazzy drums. The mysterious, floating improvised free jazz sequence of "Libarot respiration" represents the highlight of the album. Very beautiful and eerie with efficient impressionistic motifs. "Culturez vous vous mÍmes" is a sinister atmosphere track with slow droning ambiences / frequences, intimate piano in the distance. A great variety of sounds, a few original ideas and a talented sense of improvisation.
