Okay, no need to be getting excited about this yet, but since our first mini promo video went up today, I'mma paste it here for either ridicule or ignoring in ignominy...anyway, we won't even be done with the record until at least fall, but I'm bored at work right now...
Saschienne's album is very last year, but I was happy to see them coming to Mutek in Montreal in June. Anyway for anyone who missed this mix, start at 15:00. Ridiculously good. Now if only Fourtet would come.
after several plays 'entertainment' is probably the worst song on the album, so kind of a weird choice for the lead single.
i'm really surprised at how much i prefer this one to Wolfgang Amadeus (and I loved WA), despite there not being a single that really compares to 1901 or Liszt, pop-wise. i think the first half is really solid (though i don't particularly like "The Real Thing"), including much preferring this one's mid-album instrumental-ish "Bankrupt" to WA's "Love Like a Sunset(s);" which took me seeing done live to be converted to thinking is awesome.
2nd half is just lolgood with them at the absolute top of their game. "Bourgeois" might be my favorite song they've done.
