Artist: FEMME
Title: Chroma
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct Disques
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"When it comes to head-scratchers, no one plows into the scalp like Bruit Direct Disques. For their 24th release, theyve ponied up this mélange by the duo Femme. Chroma summons forth a soundscape of stellar post trance, electro magma. As dense as it is deft. The ten gurgling innards effortlessly spewed out here rank it alongside other Moltenadelic CO-2 snuffers such as Ilitchs Periodik Mindtrouble (1978) or Junji Hirose + Yoshihide Otomos Silanganan Ingay (1989). Lush, foreboding, and fantastical, Chromas pocket universe of seductive dread could spook the sheen right offve Moebiuss Airtight Garage and there aint a damn thing Major Grubertor Jerry Cornelius is gonna do about it. The future doesnt get any more Untopian than this." - Bruit Direct Disques.

Artist: KLIMPEREI & ERIC CHABERT
Title: Sing John B Cornaway: Dealings
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct Disques
Country: France
Price: $26.00
“The pataphysical toy music of Klimperei, a collective project led since 1985 by Christophe Petchanatz, gets a lot out of many small things - dismantled toys, organs with burst pipes, squeaking detuned guitars, loose broom. Sung in English by Eric Chabert, the songs on Dealings are adaptations of poems by John B. Cornaway (1957-1994), author ofHeligoland. Over Chaberts scratchy voice, still manifesting all its vigor, Klimperei unload its makeshift bric-a-brac, convoking melodica, banjo and metallophone. Child-like without infantilism, these pieces sometimes show their teeth, but the bite is never violent. Woozy cabaret cantata ("Cup of Tea"), Potluck Canterbury School ("Spoil"), punk waltz under a sad sun ("Hard"), acoustic free-blues ("Solution", "Wear On") or haywire krautrock ("Soon"). Mind dust in a stormy mouth, black candy dispenser - broken bottle et verre brisé . The glottis shaking sobs are quickly repressed. Because, yes, despite everything, life is good at Klimpereis. And the wind, Cornaway says, will never die.” - Bruit Direct Disques.

Artist: THEOREME
Title: Lappel Du Midi A Midi Pile
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct Disques
Country: France
Price: $29.00
“Bruit Direct Disques continues down the path of no-fucks-given with yet another ace from a deck already heaping with bewildering gems. In much the same way as Pier Paolo Pasolinis film Theoreme (1968) once fizzled the corneas of the prim, Theoreme, the artist, is here to singe ears on this blistering solo debut. Laying down all the instrumentation and vocals herself, Theoreme posits that spectres of the past continue to resonate in the contemporaneous milieu of the underground. This isnt some Erik Von Daniken Chariots Of The Gods bullshit - its the fucking truth. Deep inside the angular ingenuity of this chef doeuvre are subtle sonic vectors, analogous to Gutura, SIC and the corrosive side of the German label Zickzack; Channeled or not, the adage remains, "Great minds think alike". Its not definite that the French invented propositional logic, but they sure do guzzle it down. And Theoremes right there - two-fisted, bellied up and ready for guzzling. You want a cold war? Well son, here it is. Have at it.” - Bruit Direct Disques.
