UNWORKS & RARITIES 2012-2015 (LP) by Oiseaux-Tempête

Label: Sub Rosa
Catalogue #: SR 424
Format: LP
Release Date: 2016
Availability: In Stock

UNWORKS & RARITIES is an album compiling unreleased and miscelleanous pieces: a cinematic and poetic voyage orchestrated by the Oiseaux-Tempête's core duo: Frédéric D. Oberland & Stéphane Pigneul.

Following their two acclaimed first albums (S/T, 2013 and ÜTOPIYA?, 2015), UNWORKS & RARITIES is putting up more than a collection of outtakes. Pushing new boundaries, this opus crystallizes precious moments of sonic bloom, from ambient soundscapes to free-noise and krautrock inflected improvisation.
Including previous guests as Gareth Davis on bass clarinet and G.W. Sok (ex The Ex) on vocals, UNWORKS & RARITIES features also Christine Ott on Ondes Martenot and drummers Ben Mc Connell, Sylvain Joasson & Jean-Michel Pirès.

'Oiseaux-Tempête is plumbing the depths of their vast archives to polish jewels of jazzy noise and well-paced post-rock.'  EXCLAIM - CAN

"Transfigurer le chaos en beauté absolue. Unworks & Rarities donne dans l'ascensionnel sanglant, la montée métaphysique, le renversement de toutes les valeurs de la pop érigé en sentiment. Fatalement, c'est du lourd, et c'est très impressionnant." THE DRONE - FR

'Excellent band' THE WIRE - UK

'Beautifully atmospheric'  KALTBLUT MAGAZINE - DE

'This series of “unworks and rarities” is much better than most bands’ main products. If the Parisians hadn’t labelled it as such, we might never have known.'  A CLOSER LISTEN - USA

'La angustia que te consume en las noches suena así, como el nuevo disco de Oiseaux-Tempête.'  NOISEY - MX //

'Un viaggio poetico, peculiare coacervo di post-rock, kraut jazzato, noise e ambient che ha reso il gruppo transalpino una delle realtà europee piú interessanti degli ultimi anni.' THE NEW NOISE
