ACCIDENT DU TRAVAIL
Très Précieux Sang LP
The Trilogy Tapes 38 / UK / 2016
Tres Precieux Sang sees Julie Normal and Olivier Demeaux return to Will Bankhead's acclaimed experimental imprint. Stylistically, it explores similar territory to previous excursions, with the duo laying down a series of beat-less compositions built around droning harmonium chords, effects-laden woodwind parts, unsettling ambient electronics, and slowly unfurling textures. At times, it's curiously mournful, at others the music is strangely beautiful. Throughout, it remains both hypnotic and curiously intense.
