With Piscolabis , Golden Bug delivers his new work, a sonic UFO oscillating between electronica, robot vibrations and psychedelic dub.
Piscolabis gathers all the vibes, the codes, the styles Antoine Harispuru has been messing with during the years and traces a bold new direction towards new worlds.
And he’s got, on his fourth studio album, an impressive cast of guests : rock act The Liminañas and electronic producer Tim Glass from France , Funboys from Australia, Vega Voga from Japan , Pajaro Sunrise from Spain ; they all help him painting this picture, a project born from opposites confronting each other.
A path starting with Colibri’s substance-drenched, labyrinthic dance floor beat, going on to Variations Sur 3 Bancs featuring The Liminañas take on the acid-western / psych pop universe, taking us hitch-hiking for a while thru Japan with singer Vega Voga for some out-there musical epics, and La Boite Noire takes us dancing, but very very very slowly. Slower. Ok.
Then La Goutte D’Eau starts casting its shadows until Fata Morgana gets her hands on that arpeggiator, which basically keeps us raving on until Nid de guêpes, a mutating obsession, a gateway drug to Bring The Light, featuring Pajaro Sunrise, and to the blinking rainbow road they bring us onto. (This is kinda Golden Bug’s light side.)
The path ends with a triptych : Kotodama Part 1 and 2 (featuring Vega Voga) and Le Chant Des Sirènes, a musical work which perfectly encompasses the trip Antoine Harispuru has taken on this last album of his: a stroll from an indescribable, eccentric, robot-like binary code to shining, moody pop music, and back again.
