Product Notes

In 2010 Lionel Laquerriere (Nestorisbianca, Geysir) joins Yann Tiersen's live band. To break up the tedium of soundchecks, they begin to improvise analog synth versions of Tiersen's songs. The concept of an all-analog project soon takes root. An offer to play at Acusmatiq Festival finds the duo in need of a third mind to complete the circuit and bring the concept to life. Friend, fellow synth-obsessive, and producer Thomas Poli (Dominique A., Miossec, Olivier Mellano, Montgomery, Laetitia Sheriff) joins and Elektronische Staubband is born. The next few years see further well-received festival appearances across Europe, followed in 2013 by the release of (the now abbreviated) ESB's first original material on a 7 single for the Thoré Single Club. Finding time between their countless other music projects in 2014, the trio finally have a short window to record their debut album. Convening at Tiersen's studio, each member chooses two weapons from his analog armory and plugs in for ten days of intense, immersive, cosmic jamming. ARPs glide. Korgs drone. Moogs throb. Electricity breathes life into the strange, tangled melodies. Common influences swirl around. Michael Bundt to Tim Hecker, Klaus Schulze to Fennesz, Popol Vuh to Loscil, Kraftwerk to F*** Buttons, Delia Derbyshire to Grouper, NEU! To Follakzoid. Accidents are appreciated. Unexpected meetings are welcome. Every track is composed on the fly and recorded in the moment. By turns danceable and sinister, human and alien, the songs extend and warp, are allowed time to grow and to lead the musicians down unexpected roads. The finished songs offer a cracked, kaleidoscopic view of some exotic, retro-futuristic world. Mixed in Rennes, France, by Poli and mastered at Translab Studio in Paris by Chab.
