CIA DEBUTANTE

Dust

(Siltbreeze) LP $16.00

One the second vinyl outing from Nathan Roche and Paul Bonnet for Siltbreeze, vocal recitation and percolating electronics are honed to perfection, moving them beyond whatever references were made in the past, now comparable it to that giant Zardoz head flying around the French countryside, drolly enunciating dystopian affirmations, predicting the future, rewriting the past, ordering off-menu, spitting a rain of Aperol, Pernod and Gitanes to their brutish followers below. Basically free drinks and smokes. What’s not to follow? You can Cabaret Voltaire this or Shadow Ring that all you want, but Dust puts CIA Debutante in the catbird seat.

CIA DEBUTANTE

Pier

(SDZ) 7-inch $12.00

CIA Debutante has been cultivating its brain fog for years, stashing away in places that consistently experience connectivity issues. Grey humor is a basis for life and the therapy of homemade electronic chaos, the nature of which is yet to be determined, as a reflective blanket. In this techno-cocoon like no other woven by Paul Bonnet (Disposition Matrix), Nathan Roche (Le Villejuif Underground) develops thoughts-counter-brains, his lobes like pet iguanas surfing on the essential vibrations of the useless. The images are there, those of countless extremophilic organisms, fractured cosmic debris, the ocean floor cracking, the international station stalling and a general instability that spreads tirelessly like the devil’s worm in the oldest gold mines. Perpetually reachable on a number that doesn’t exist yet, the duo is once again working wonders with stellar musical foam. Handmade sleeve. Edition of 200

CIA DEBUTANTE

The Landlord

(Siltbreeze) LP $16.00

This expat duo from France have been murking the waters of the cassette underground for the latter part of a decade. With its peaks and percolations like a sci-fi absinthe of future past, their debut vinyl release is most succinctly described as a cross between the Shadow Ring and Cabaret Voltaire. Edition of 250.
