Oiseaux-Tempête ~ Tlamess (Sortilège)

Oiseaux-Tempête returns to its instrumental strength with Tlamess (Sortilège), the score to a Tunisian film about a soldier who leaves the war upon learning of his mother’s death.  Directed by Ala Eddine Slim, the film has been making the festival rounds

Oiseaux-Tempête ~ AL-‘AN ! الآن

It may seem strange for an instrumental site to be interested in lyrics, but the primarily instrumental Parisian collective Oiseaux-Tempête has always been political, and today’s political climate is more charged than ever.  How would they react on their new album?

Oiseaux-Tempête ~ Unworks and Rarities

Parisian collective Oiseaux-Tempête follows Re-Works with Unworks & Rarities, an shorter-than-usual album, but without filler.  It’s remarkable to think that these were tracks that didn’t make prior releases.  On this album, the collective continues to channel its innermost Godspeed, albeit with a European twist. The first

ACL 2015: The Top 20 Albums of the Year

Rich picked Matana Roberts, Chris picked Michael Price, James picked Ian William Craig, David picked Holly Herndon and Joe picked Heroin in Tahiti.  But this year’s #1, one of the longest albums ever recorded, drew support from across the board.

ACL 2015: Top Ten Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz

If there was any doubt about our pick of Constellation Records as our Label of the Year, this feature should prove it, as three of our Top Ten picks come from their stable.  GY!BE continues to cast a long shadow.

Oiseaux-Tempête ~ Ütopiya?

Certain albums lend themselves to certain natural environments: home listening, club, car ride, airline trip.  Ütopiya? is the perfect album for a stroll through an urban environment.  I realized this last week while walking in Manhattan with my iPod.  Unlike

Post-Rock Road Trip: Day Four

Day Four of our road trip takes us across the Channel to France, where the sounds of Oiseaux-Tempête, Fall of Messiah, Red Forest and Totorro await.  These acts may not sound French, but they don’t sound like their Canadian counterparts either.  All four share

ACL 2013: Top Ten Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz
