Holy shit, this record is bloodcurdling from start to finish ! I know this collection of old Japanese temple music is supposed to be "Zen" (it's in the title, by the way)... but I don't know... it sounds like the background of a small, spooky village, in the middle of the night, while yōkai (malevolent Japanese demons, with physical attributes relating to both humans and animals) kidnap and devour children under the ghostly moon... Notorious cultural ... read more

בלתי יאומן

When we talk about "the best jazz bands in the world", we inevitably think of Miles Davis' first and second great quintets. We also think of the John Coltrane Quartet, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the Duke Ellington Orchestra, the Pat Metheny Group (for those who like 80's jazz, deal with it).... And more recently, we can think of Masada. The quartet of John Zorn (alto sax), which blithely blends Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz , Post-Bop and Klezmer music. For this ... read more

Quarantine Hike

Who among you has never strained his ear in the middle of summer to listen carefully to the song of crickets and grasshoppers? Who hasn't listened to the springtime dialogues of the birds? For the urban ear, most of Mother Nature's sounds are all too often just fantasies. To draw attention to the trivial, to make audible what the human eye cannot see thanks to the microphone, this eye eager to see everything, to tell a brief story of the dialogue between the world of the city ... read more

This one comes from the Earth... From its misty forests where dreams come to life, from its gently flowing streams, from its thousand sources that feed them, from its unusual paths that an unholy nature offers to travellers entering its bosom, from its venerable trees that have seen the centuries pass by, from the soil itself, from the roots that cling to it, from the humus, from the bedrock... with this anachronistic medieval village lost at the end of a vaporous marsh. But ... read more

Big year 2020 for Pink Siifu, who in April had already released a little discographic firecracker called "NEGRO"... An incendiary, lapidary, violent record; which mixed politically charged rap, punk rock, power electronics, industrial music, spoken word and rough noise collage. Not necessarily pleasant to listen to, but seminal and traumatic as possible... Here, accompanied by his colleague Fly Anakin, he delivers a much more accessible album, but no less interesting and researched ... read more

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list and I'd love to know which album has had the greatest influence on your current taste in music? If you want, I'd also appreciate it if you could say exactly how it's made you grow/learn more as a listener (don't worry, you don't have to do this part).

Thank you for reading and answering, if you do

aka Mathieux 🕶

WhatTheFunk ? who is this frog-eater coming from another dimension who, armed only with his magic coat rack (nicknamed "Rico") fights alone against the terrifying pharaoh-vampires, the evil flesh-eating bath mats and their Nazi-Communist allies?! Who is hiding behind the glasses of this hero who defends orphans, pandas and heel fetishists?! Is he a millionaire, a pyromaniac, a fireman or an underpaid sweeper in a Yugoslavian laundry? So many questions and yet so few answers...
