Aquaserge, ‘La fin de l’economie’ – think Stereolab

Sung in French, this album is a facsimile of Stereolab’s Bacharachian output.

Soft, sighing, melancholy, harpsichord.

Mind you, ‘La fin de l’economie’ does go a bit Jarre at times – the lab never went in that direction.

Towards the end guitars, keyboards, vocals – all get put in the mixer and a muffler put over the mixer – nothing seems distinguishable – I don’t know what I’m listening to anymore – is this a song – or just sounds (its concrete, its mushy weetabix) – this is fucking outrageous – a fitting ending given the album’s title.
