3 stars French band NOETRA was the creative vehicle of composer and guitarist Jean Lapouge, an active entity in the late 70's and early 80's, eventually disbanding in 1985 without ever releasing any material. But due to chance and circumstance some of their recordings were presented to Musea Records, which wanted to release this material. Since then four albums of archival recordings have been published. "Resurgences D'Errances" from 2011 is the most recent of these.

Released some 30 years after they were recorded, these live efforts of Noetra will most likely appeal to a limited audience. The music itself is generally pleasant and should have a broad appeal as such, but the lo-fi character of the source material won't be to everybody's taste. It is a nice documentation of a band defying genre conventions however, their blend of influences from classical, folk and jazz combining into creations that don't really belong in either of these categories, mostly pleasant, but occasionally showing glimpses of brilliance and true genius, and most profoundly so on concluding piece Noetra.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
