AKSAK MABOUL . Charles F. Bleistift . EP 7"

This limited-edition 7” EP follows the release of Aksak Maboul's acclaimed new double LP 'Figures' (out May 22, 2020), which is the legendary experimental pop band’s first real new album in decades. These four tracks are reworks, which don’t appear as such on the album. They unveil the imaginative world of the Figures album, with its unique  instrumentation, its sound collages and diverse, enigmatic moods.   

1A. Tout a une fin (short version)
A tight 3-minute track including a song part (in which Véronique Vincent’s voice performs sinuous variations around the words in the title) and a section featuring electronic, rock and orchestral instrumentation rising to a wild, crescendo finale.
2A. Blaue Bleistift
Unveiling some of the more electronic and experimental aspects of the new LP, with its criss-crossing keyboard lines and sound collages. Kind of a mysterious, ambient cousin of Aksak Maboul’s Saure Gurke?
1B. C'est Charles (edit)
An edited version of a song which ends on the sound of a crowd chanting slogans (“What we want… Is…”)

2B. Silent Silhouettes
This almost-instrumental track might be evoking a kind of electronic tango, or a dream scene in a Fellini movie?

7" Vinyl - made in Belgium
