This last track will soon be use in the soundtrack of this play at the Macrobert Arts Center of Stirling.
Thanks for listening!

Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style.
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…

Whew! Music is hard work. :-) I could write a short story of all the ideas I have for this album. Between creating a working, innovative central theme, researching the technical requirements to make a constructed language work and my actual daytime work for a living, ah who am I kidding, I actually still have plenty of free time. Lol. I've not been procrastinating so much as I've been avoiding. Haha. All kidding aside, though, every day I'm consistently humming out new ideas or modifying sections of progressed tracks to further reinforce the album foundation before moving forward. Hoping for a tentative release date of November 1st so fingers crossed and fly high.
