Premiere: Bégayer – Lycose battue

Fifteen years after their inaugural release, Paris-based platform Murailles Music, Via Parigi and Le Saule deliver the nine-track ‘Évohé B​è​gue‘ LP – courtesy of French folk noise quintet Bégayer with Loup Uberto, Alexis Vinéïs, Lucas Ravinale, Jean-Philippe Curtelin and Etienne Foyer.

Mostly recorded between Le Mans and Poncillon, ‘Évohé Bègue’ conjures a psyched-out fantasy combining ancestral folklore and mutant technology. A total of nine tracks give Bégayer’s eyeteeth to create the folklore of tomorrow, emphasizing Ethiopian box-lyre instruments, Gnawa percussions, devilish chants and infected radio transistors.

Our pick for the premiere is ‘Lycose battue‘ – thanks to its eight-legged mantra conducted with trippy incantations, distorted bagpipe melodies and clairvoyant percussion. As a result of its oriental-infused outro, this track is the ideal accompaniment for a wine-making ritual.

‘Évohé B​è​gue’ is scheduled for release on 11th March via Murailles Music. Order a vinyl copy from Bandcamp.
