The latest track, Dans Le Feu, wraps the listener in a layer of sumptuous scented oils which feed through the torso like a skilled massage wafting away the knots of muscle contractions and leaving the listener in relaxed and quiet repose some little while after the notes have faded far in to the distance.

Funny Face – The Undecided Ghosts Chaser – Single Review

The project of the French musician Fanny SeguiFunny Face – released the ethereal-folk single The Undecided Ghosts Chaser yesterday.

Funny Face

Funny Face

A music creator with an extensive back catalogue of diverse material, yet each of haunting melodies and layered lofidelity texturing that captivates the listener.

The Undecided Ghosts Chaser, in common with previous releases is again a difference of approach, with the focus of the song highlighting the superlative and evocative vocal around which the dreamy acoustic and skipping percussion meander forms a song that for its very simplicity of construct delivers a drifting melancholia through the room which leaves the listener with  teary bloodshot eyes as it fades from earshot.

The most recent song to surface – Motoko – was released as the second of the five tracks on the Metro A – VOLUME I – Sessions Polycarpe EP compilation released last week and signposted with the contribution by SLOGAN – Bérénice –  on the 15th. Lyon is a city on which I must focus closer attention and Metro A a label to get to know better with their preponderance for musical acts of the darker side of life…

…The film-noir waves of electronica and instrumentation cast darkened fog-bound shadows around the room as Motoko, like a looming threshing machine, presses the listener ever further in to the corner seeking safety from the oppressive soundtrack.

N.K.R.T is a dark-drone project from France.

N.K.R.T

This is not music to approach when pressed for time as typically individual pieces last in excess of quarter of an hour and the live performance of Nuits Dark Ritual VII is no exception with a run time of just over twenty two minutes.

The eerie chanting vocal is surrounded by clicking percussion on bones, stones and leather and a low humming electronica which fills the room in an ever more oppressive brooding presence with the second half of the track wrapped in an industrial reference and an overpowering feeling of panic prior to the composition decaying in to a distorted self-destruction.
