Album Review

Foussat, Jean-Marc & Les Autres – “Alternative Oblique” – [Improvising Beings]

mouthbreather   6/15/2016   A Library, CD

frenchie Foussat’s (foosa) compilation of electronic, free-jazz nonsense in four delectable discs. all weird and wild, though a few tracks border on sanity.

CD1 is a collection of pieces with various movements. can be played continuous, as most songs track together.

CD2 starts off with a psychedelic spin, devolving to free jazz feels, into an aloof kraut rock vibe ala Faust (track 9).

CD3 four ~20 minute noise tracks good for mixing some chaos into your set. glitchy whirrs and whistles/ modem’s sexy nightmare/ fever dream chant/ falling endlessly into the chasm.

CD4 long, live recordings of oddball sounds structures fabricated with horns, drums, synth, stringed things. free jazz.
