Product Description

On third album ‘C’, Romain Turzi adds the operatic voice of Caroline Vallain to his mix of krautrock and psych. Alongside the Versailles musician and his seven-piece band, Vallain’s powerful soprano – best heard on ‘Cygne’ – is used more as musical texture than a standalone element, bestowing drama, mystery and classical elegance on a record where atmosphere is king and genre is an afterthought. ‘Chouette’ opens with spooky synth and clavinet before breaking into fuzzy car-chase funk, and the garage stomp of ‘Cardinal’ is almost pinky. Unfolding like a psych compilation from Manchester’s Amorphous Androgynous (who included Turzi’s ‘Afghanistan’ on their 2009 volume), ‘C’ is hardly commercial, but it emerges as a hugely rewarding listen.
