Pepe Wismeer / Thierry Müller - L’écho des chiens dans le sang de la tactique -trAce 053

This album is the fruit of ​​a collaboration following the meeting between Pepe Wismeer and Thierry Müller (ilitch, Ruth …) a few years ago.
Recorded between April and November 2019, the first CD (12 tracks) is unsettling by its irresistible beauty and its ambiguous melancholy mixing heady reverie and experimental dark psyche delirium.
The second CD “No Re Re Night Fever – volume 7” (43 mn) is the quintessence of three nights of improvisation performed without re-recording in August 2019.

Kaleidoscope mastered by sparse and vast influences, the very personal universe of Pepe Wismeer – duo living in the Ardennes led by Anne-Laure Therme and Damien Van Lede – has been handling the purity, the delicacy, the minimalism since 1999 in about twenty albums, all relatively unclassifiable and deep, on the borders of experimental, industrial, dark-folk and ambient. In their icy or hot universe where a subtle mixture of anguish and melancholy crouches, emerging from a multitude of organic and analog sounds, the languid voice, the piano and the sometimes epic effects breathe melodies and frames of a irresistible beauty. Nurse With Wound was right, choosing them for its compilation of versions of Two Shaves And A Shine.

Thierry Müller is a multi-instrumentalist composer, whose Ilitch and Ruth projects are recognized in the international independent and underground scene. Since 1978, his albums with multiple and unclassifiable universes have been erected as “Cult” by personalities like Tim Gane, Lee Ranaldo, Steven Stapleton, Edward Ka-Spell, …). He collaborated on albums or Live with, among others, Valentina Fanigliulo (Mushy, Phantom Love), Nick Littlemore (Empire Of The Sun, Pnau), Aaron Moore (Volcano The Bear,…), Quentin Rollet, Jac Berrocal, NowCut …

 

ilitch-PTM Works en concert

Concert Lèche Moi / ilitch-PTM Works

Lèche Moi, c’est un groupe à deux têtes (langues, comme ils disent) composé de Sidonie à la voix veloutée et puissante et de Mika (Mika Pusse, Chantal Morte, Slaasssch, Pupusse & Patrack,…). Les deux forment un duo romantique et outrageusement sexuel.
“La musique de Lèche-moi est par essence scandaleuse, crade comme un bon vieux Alan Vega, avec des relents de proto-punk, d’électro-clash, de trip-hop mais aussi de country western et de folk azimuté. En clair, on y trouve un peu tout ce qu’on peut croiser dans une arrière-salle d’un club ou d’un sex-shop, d’un bar ou d’un bon routier du côté de Memphis, à savoir la chaleur moite d’un rock américain trépassé mais aussi l’ardeur sophistiquée d’une scène électro clandestine.” Benjamin Berton – Sun Burns Out.

The idea of making an album “tribute” to some actresses who marked me in some films or their personality, their aura, came to me after recording “Catherine J.”, then, later “Monica V.” composed for a concert with Valentina Fanigliulo (Mushy) in Amsterdam in 2013.
These tracks are the “view” of the sensations and deep feelings they inspire me …: the captivating smile of Sandrine Bonnaire, the eyes of Monica Vitti, the failures of Catherine Jourdan, the last hours of Jean Seberg, the distress of Romy Schneider …
“The Silent Storyteller” act out the mood in which these tracks were created.
