Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, November 19, 2009

Klaxon Gueule, a band that makes few albums but carries on and keeps on renewing itself. On Infininiment (no, it’s not a typo), the core trio — Michel F Côté, Bernard Falaise, Alexandre St-Onge — is joined by three guests: Gordon Allen, Jean Derome, and Philippe Lauzier. The group is still playing free improvisation sitting between the acoustic and the electronic, between sound and noise, between hard and soft. More soft than hard, actually, especially early on this CD, where the sonic matter feels like plastic left too close to the heater. Strange image? Possibly. Still, an intriguing record, almost captivating even. I’ll have to get back to it. A second listen is mandatory.
