OVD018 : Les Boucles Absurdes / Un nouveau pied pour Noël (feat. Pierre Vervloesem)

After the fabulous OPV007OPV010 and OVD003, this is another gift from Les Boucles Absurdes! 
Broken Leg features Seesayle on vocals. The rest of the album is again absurd loops put together by J-P Jonckheere and magistrally mixed by wizard Pierre Vervloesem.
Like always with Les Boucles, you know where a track starts but you never know where it goes and ends! 
Bizarre for some, genius for others! I tend to say: genius!



From United Mutations blog:


"Last week, I received a small wooden box. The box had "Les Boucles Absurdes" written on top of it and it presented a USB stick. Never afraid to put a memory stick in my pc, I plugged it in to find "Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël", the brand-new album by Les Boucles Absurdes.
Les Boucles Absurdes is Jean-Pierre Jonckheere and Pierre Vervloesem.
"Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël" (A New Foot For Christmas) is their fourth release and it's superb.
The album presents six tracks. Every track is some sort of loop. (Les Boucles Absurdes = Crazy Loops).
Floating guitar tones, extraterrestrial voices, sampled synthesizer tones, the crackling of a vinyl album, contemporary classical percussive sounds and sirens, pulsing bass lines, a Gregorian choir, ...
"Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël" will take you on an amazing journey.

I love it. I'm hearing new things all the time."  - Peter Vanlaarhoven
