New Canadiana :: Hoover Party – Some Liquidity for these Troubled Times


Hoover Party - Some Liquidity for these Troubled Times

Jonathan Adjemian’s name is a new one to me. Once a member of Jon Rae and the River and laying down organ stabs in $100, the Torontonian lights out for the hinterlands on this synth-based tape that groans its way to Nirvana in the most pleasurable of fashions. The nine untitled tracks here unfurl themselves at a languid pace that recalls Eno-era Harold Budd, in addition to spiky concrete-esque filter workouts that dissolve into heavy machine babble conversations. Equally able to soundtrack an IBM corporate seminar or those midnight mini-movies of the mind, Jonathan hits all the right chords on this one. Hit up the folks at Healing Power for a copy, ’cause they gonna go quick.

Je ne connaissais pas Jonathan Adjemian, ancien membre de Jon Rae and the River et organiste sans merci de $100, mais sur cette cassette, le Torontois s’enfuit dans l’arrière-pays et atteint le nirvâna par vagues de synthétiseurs plaintifs. Ces neuf pièces sans titre se déploient langoureusement, rappelant les collaborations de Brian Eno et Harold Budd, en alternance avec des exercices de filtrage plus concrets et acerbes qui se dissoudent en conversations mécaniques. Aussi apte à accompagner un séminaire corporatif d’IBM que les rêveries intérieures de minuit, la performance de Jonathan est exemplaire. Procurez-vous l’album dès maintenant chez Healing Power.
