4 stars This is an album which offers fairly interesting jazz flavoured krautrock - the sole effort from a mysterious French project FILLE QUI MOUSSE by the look of it. Clearly structured though, as it is unexpectedly ... which means here we have some weird experimental stuff embedded in two jazz rock respectively canterbury jams. The fine opener Cantate Disparate reminds me of Soft Machine and Gong in style, the drumming especially.

Much more accessible when comparing with the following shorter excerpts which show freaked out finger experiments on the piano or eastern and industrial coloured stuff where they are getting close to a Faust approach. Esplanade is the most challenging track most likely ... a woman recites, accompanied by barking dogs and then it evolves into an electronical excursion which sounds like an extraterrestrian siren. This probably might have inspired the Belgian newcomer Magdalena Solis in some way. It's a kind of magic ... really hard to escape from.

Résistance Instinctive follows with celestial piano impressions and Transplantation definitely gets out of control completely. Finally on the extended L'eau Était Vitale they recollect their jazz rocking quailities, this time featuring a violin. Spot on if you are keen on a sound in the vein of Gong or similar .. and do not have problems with some freakish experiments appearing in between.

Rivertree | 4/5 |
