Calle Debauche biography
CALLE DEBAUCHE is a new rock ensemble of four musicians (initially three, but one of the guests gets a more than regular credit), who live in Arizona and, in fact, play only in Tucson. Mohaved, as guitarist, keyboardist and lead artist, Frederic (Malter) as percussionist, Dave (LeGender), playing tuba, are completed by guests Chris Halvorsen (playing marimba) and Guillem Sarle (Tenor Sax). Being, for the moment, a fresh and rather obscure band, their music, thanks to a smashing debut called "Potemkin Carnival", has a good chance of becoming more evoked and appreciated, though that doesn't mean any accessible comfort, instead it earns a lot of qualities, delightful edges and "progressively skilled" customs.

Considered sometimes unique, when rather just complex and nicely conserved/conversed within values, the band and their music get an impressive amount of categorizations, most of them born out of exactly the sensible or pushy way in which to define them. CALLE DEBAUCHE themselves put irony into this aspect, naming their music as a blend of ska, world, reggae, pop, disco and art, while the progressive rock, the soft metal or the jazz "phunk" are mere influences. Even more indistinct is how they state their references, going from the almighty COLTRANE and KING CRIMSON to HENRY COW and CARDIACS, from FELA KUTI and SONIC YOUTH to SLEEPYTIME GORRILA MUSEUM and TORTOISE. Upstream, their "Potemkin Carnival" material is also regarded from eccentric rock to instrumental avant-garde, from math art to verbose jazzy blanches.

Most assuring, CALLE DEBAUCHE have an enthusiastic taste for difficult and unusual music, drafting both an art rock of the new century (of the new sound as well, perhaps) and an avant-rock testing music. Their purest progressive rock moments actually consume while there is no disorder in their class, taste and flow for music. In an outside circle, their album has a bit of mainstream, but it is of a cultural gladness.

"Potemkin Carnival" is an album of an aflame variety and exercise, but most of all it greets an instrumental art with no rigid bents. It will most likely be CALLE DEBAUCHE's sense of originality and "hard-core", into the future. Mixing the intricate with the verve, and the dark-sound with the dissimilar lust, becomes an ordinary apprise, whilst the expansions and fields of the music settle as an artistic point for CALLE DEBAUCHE's great, sporadic or muscle-pulled tastes.
