20:55 | Xiu Xiu, aka LA-based duo Jamie Stewart and Angela Seo released their latest album 'Angel Guts: Red Classroom' last February on Bella Union. Brewed up in tribute to Einstürzende Neubauten, Suicide, Nico and the experimental side of Kraftwerk, at times Xiu Xiu sound like a noxious ghost alliance between recent Scott Walker and some crepuscular oddity on Blackest Ever Black. Live, it will be played as a darkened and exploding battery of true analog synth and masterfully played, fuzz-treated percussion.
19:50 | RÊVE is a solo project by Julie Fossaert, formerly from the french math rock band Radiateur, multi-task member of twee pop curiosity Peru Peru, but also Tristeza and Füxa collaborator.
'Ventre Univers', RÊVE's first EP, produced by longtime friend Daniel O 'Sullivan (Mothlite, Grumbling Fur, Miracle, Ulver, Aethenor, Guapo) and featuring guests such as James Lehner (Tristeza drummer) or Frédérique Luczkow (singer of french act The Hanged Man and The Moon) came out in 2013.
5 songs, in French, English and Japanese, among delicate aikus and landscapes swept by the storm. Analog synthesizers, saturated bass and acoustic instruments travelling between chaos and harmony, darkness and light.
