New Canadiana :: Violence – Erlebnis

Violence - Erlebnis

The needle goes in, the specimen falls still. The experiment can begin. Wielding their instruments of torture with medical precision, our two plastic surgeons of sound, Julie Morand-Ferron and Éric Trottier, patiently carve away the flabby body’s flesh, revealing the angular skeleton underneath. The pulse beats on undisturbed, mechanical, amplified and filtered by the EKG. A dark and unsettling halo, the mute shadow of some German mad scientist, hangs over the operating table. While the chilling whine of an electric saw grates on in the rooms of the abandoned hospital, the patient is lost in soft, sedated visions, oblivious to the liberating violence inflicted upon him.

L’aiguille s’enfonce, le cobaye cesse de remuer. L’expérience peut débuter. Maniant leurs instruments de torture avec une précision chirurgicale, nos deux plasticiens du son, Julie Morand-Ferron et Éric Trottier, dépouillent la carcasse de sa chair flasque, en dévoilent patiemment l’ossature anguleuse. Le pouls demeure imperturbable, machinal, amplifié et filtré par l’électrocardiogramme. Halo sombre et inquiétant, l’ombre muette de quelque savant allemand fou plane sur la table d’opération. Et tandis que retentit le grincement glacial d’une scie électrique dans les salles sombres de l’hôpital abandonné, le patient, lui, se perd dans de douces visions anesthésiantes, inconscient de la violence libératrice qui s’abat sur lui au même instant.

New Canadiana :: Violence – EP

Weird_Canada-Violence-EP

Montreal’s Visage Musique has become a go-to source for sub-zero heaters. The label’s latest stunner is this sublime synth-pop 12” from Ottawa duo Violence that could be equally mistaken for a lost cut from BIPPP, the soundtrack to a Molly Ringwald montage, or a regular Thursday at Sex Laser. These visitors of the night are welcome at any party.

Le label montréalais Visage Musique, devenu une référence de bouillonnement sous-zéro, propose ce sublime 12″ synth-pop du duo franco-ottavien Violence, qu’on pourrait réputer – à juste titre – être une session perdue de l’essentielle compilation française BIPPP, la trame sonore d’un montage de Molly Ringwald, ou juste un jeudi soir normal au Sex Laser. Ces visiteurs de la nuit sont les bienvenus à n’importe quel party.

New Canadiana :: Brusque Twins – A Voice In The Night

Brusque Twins - A Voice In The Night
Undulating acid bass thaws the permafrost of Brusque Twins’ latest EP. The icy hot duo last washed up on these shores with the standout banger of Visage Musique’s Vol. 1 comp, cropping up again here with four new hyperborean ballads. The operatic vocals of Hollie Hensman are the tell-tale heartbeat of this closet goth club, thumping away to the rhythm of the night.

New Canadiana :: Police des Moeurs – Police des Moeurs EP

Police Des Moeurs
Police Des Moeurs may be Alphaville’s greatest export since Lemmy Caution and Anna Karina. The duo intuitively know when to let sequencers speak for themselves, when to chime in, and when to command their drum machines to play another remorseless fill. Best experienced while observing Brutalist architecture, a worn existential paperback in your pocket. [Note: Certain copies of the 7" may come packaged with a page from George Orwell's 1984.]

New Canadiana :: Various Artists – Visage Musique Vol. 1

Various Artists - Visage Musique Vol. 1
Wipe that icy sweat off your brow and vogue like a vampire. Visage Musique’s late 2011 salvo sends out a coldwave of shimmering shivers with minimal emotion and maximum satisfaction, spanning the label’s extended family, WC fave Femminielli and a fresh cast of freaks. Black light aerobics and arena anthems pump it up like Pavel Bure while the witching hour survivors get their kicks. G to the RIP.
