$7.00 - On Sale
N.B.: These are the last remaining copies of the EV058LP left in stock. Due to manufacturing problems and poor handling at the United Records factory when the vinyl was pressed in 2014, all these units have some slight scuffs and/or light scratches. However, in most cases these cosmetic defects should not affect the sound of the record. Because of this, the condition of the vinyl itself is equivalent to "Very Good Plus" (VG+, according to Discogs standards).
The sleeve and insert are unsealed (they were shipped this way from the factory) and in MINT condition. The download code is still included with the purchase.
*All sales on this item are final.*
(Unfortunately, I cannot reduce the shipping prices. Canadian postal rates are now terribly high for 12" LPs, especially for overseas delivery locations).
Le deuxième album d'Automelodi: maintenant disponible en commande directe à partir de Montréal!
Surlendemains Acides is the second full length from Xavier Paradis’ project Automelodi, and his first on new label Electric Voice Records. As with Automelodi’s past efforts, this sophomore LP does offer a nod to obscure ‘80/’90s European electronic music—artists such as Trisomie 21 and Grauzone among others—but the main focus of the arrangements, melodies and production on Surlendemains Acides is to frame and carry the album's very dense and personal lyrical universe: a bittersweet, angular path, haunted by shades of anxiety and disenchantment. These themes translate especially well through Paradis’ cold, yet shimmering French vocals, to create a listening experience with both unusual depth and levity. As Paradis clearly moves towards straightforward songcraft on this latest effort, the Automelodi project is elevated beyond a brilliant work of post modern electronic music to become a true stand-out within the broader context of popular music.
