"The 4-track EP "Virée Nocturne" is released on the occasion of Prophecy Fest 2016 and heralds Les Discrets' third album "Prédateurs" (due out in early 2017). Four years after the last studio effort, "Ariettes Oubliées", Fursy Teyssier departs from his blend of atmospheric metal and post rock, influenced by such artists as Agalloch, Anathema or early Ulver, and returns with a reinvention of Les Discrets. Drawing inspiration from acts like Portishead, Massive Attack, Lana Del Rey, Pink Floyd or Blonde Redhead, he keeps his musical core with a calmer version of Les Discrets, maintaining the inherent the melancholy and melodics"
Quite like the new EP. Yes, he's added triphop elements and there's a somewhat darker cast overall (both of which are great for me personally) but it is still easily recognizable as Les Discrets (thank goodness!). Looking forward to the new album Prédateurs.
V Nothing yet. Although Fursy posted how much he loves Audrey (Audrey H., not Audrey of Amesoeurs), and called her "his wife". I guess they're engaged now or have they been engaged before and I didn't know.
I stumbled over these people on someone's page. Had no idea they existed, and got their works from Bandcamp. This is really, really good music, I love it. Coming back to last.FM already prove to be a very smart move. Awesome!
Most of the time you believe in written genres and more or less bands are indeed tagged correctly, but when I first time was looking for Alcest'y bands with post-black metal, shoegaze influences, when I opened this page and saw "post-punk" and "folk", I closed it without even trying a single song. Couple months later I accidentally heard 'Song for Mountains' and my mind exploded. Please, do not tag bands with wrong genres, people are missing on great music cause of that.
The Live at Roadburn album sounds great and I can't wait for the studio album coming out (hopefully) later this year. It's surely gonna set plenty of jimmies to DEFCON RUSTLED though, based on the hints Fursy's been dropping in regards to the departure from their current sound.
