Pas Musique: Phoenix

Pas Musique’s latest mixes several types of rhythms with improvised sounds and vocals. It’s industrial, Krautrock, noise rock, and techno all at the same time, and while it could be overwhelming or messy, it works. There’s a few sampled snippets (including a bit about an electronic brain, and one assuring that you’re among friends), but the actual vocals are all stretched, contorted vocalizations rather than lyrics. You think they’re saying something just outside of your comprehension, but it’s all an illusion. But it still feels like they’re speaking in some sort of code and this is a transmission from a top secret lab somewhere. Not to mention, there’s a song on here called “Miss Globule”, which I assume is a takeoff on a certain Stereolab song, and anyway it’s just fun to say globule.
