The bizarre dark cabaret has once again opened. The 2nd full length of the sophisticated experimental collective from France. Featuring the vocals of Gaelle Kerrien (Yann Tiersen) and all lovers of David Lynch movies, artists like Kilimanjaro DarkJazz Ensemble or Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore and blue cigarette smoke in dark bars will exult again.

Metamanoir sees the band shift from their smooth, minimal and instrumental landscapes to a more lively and rich sound. Always based upon improvisation and sound research, the solo parts of their music are now embodied by vocals.

The Quartet invited several musicians and singers to record, giving a phantomatic sound with oboe, clarinet, whitewashed drones popping out of the songs. The sheer chants of Zalie Bellacicco - who appeared on the debut album - the deep tones of Ronan Mac Erlaine and the crystal clear voice of Gaelle Kerrien interfaces with the still dark jazz of the band.

Always influenced by classic 50's cool jazz and the more contemporary noise and experimental styles, the Quartet and his guests built a dreamy card castle who swing and grow deeply rooted in the fierce strangeness of David Lynch movies. Recorded in their native Brittany country, deep west of France, a land swept by climatic inconsistency fed by wind, rain and mystery. A place which gives the music an overwhelming but beautiful darkness.

This is the black cover edition for sale.
