I first fell in love with èlg when I listened to his LP, Tout Plois, which was released on Kraak and later re-issued by S-S records in the US.
A few months later he showed up at my place whilst he was in Rome for a gig at DalVerme, and after hearing his live set that love became a passion!
One year later, here we are releasing his new record on cassette.
'In Coro' uses the same recipe as before: a weird mix of french pop, drones and cut-up, psyche folk and dreamy experimental sounds; electronics breaking on nightmare-ish voice samples, and rhythms which emerge and then succumb to pseudo ambient dilation. At times listening to it reminded me of Snakefinger in the mood for a chanson francias.
