Oddball subterranean side of "rare automatic casio keyboards, frequency modulation chanson and tape collages" from Jean-Marie Mercimek - confusingly not an individual but rather a Marseille-based duo project comprised of Marion Molle and Ronan Riou. This is one of a handful of recent/current things coming out of France that feel like cause for genuine excitement (that Nina Harker LP was another). Spacy minimal synth themes seamlessly merge with passages of medieval-folk pomp in a sort of DIY Emanuelle Parenin style, and elsewhere we're reminded of everything from Jac Berrocal to Deux to Gewissen to Primitive Motion. Very special record, playful and digressive but elegant and sustained in all the right places. Edition of 250. Reader, I bought one.
