Sounds | l'Orchidée Cosmique, The Green Thing (live)


Wat je niet allemaal op je eentje aan kan, live dan nog wel. Flo P. (bass/fuzz/synth/looper) zet hier een heavy, fuzzy (ruimte) monster neer dat kan tellen! Laat je meevoeren in de man z'n fascinerende wereld.

M87 (ep) is uit via Urgence Disks Records.

"Composed naturally, without constraint, during confinement and recorded in June 2020 at Warmaudio de Décines (Lyon suburb), this EP was inspired by SciFi Z movies. These 4 titles were thought of as if a cosmonaut crew landed on a new planet. More synths than in the old recordings, still fuzzy riffs and even more pedalboards underfoot ..."

It has been since the end of 2015 that the one man band, L'Orchidée Cosmique makes gravitate its riffs in orbit around planet Earth. Alone on board, Flo distills with its bass, its synth and its pedals of effects a musical mix that calls as much for the peaceful trips in weightlessness as for the rough landings of fortune.

A flight plan between Mogwai's leaded post-rock, the Sonic Youth noise emergency or A Place To Bury Strangers and the magnetic fuzz of Torche. Pieces sometimes complex, often tortuous, but on arrival always accessible music.
