UNWORKS & RARITIES (2012-2015)
SUB ROSA | Out May 13th - June 03rd 2016
"This is the volume I of UNWORKS & RARITIES, a new serie compiling unreleased and miscelleanous pieces by OISEAUX-TEMPÊTE. Following their two acclaimed first albums (ÜTOPIYA?, 2015 & S/T, 2013), UNWORKS & RARITIES is putting up more than a collection of outtakes. Pushing new boundaries, this opus crystallizes precious moments of sonic bloom, from ambient soundscapes to free-noise and krautrock inflected improvisation. Including previous guests as Gareth Davis on bass clarinet and G.W.SOK (ex The Ex) on vocals, UNWORKS & RARITIES features also Christine Ott on Ondes Martenot and drummers Ben Mc Connell, Sylvain Joasson & Jean-Michel Pirès. A cinematic and poetic voyage orchestrated by the core duo Frédéric D. Oberland & Stéphane Pigneul. "
'Oiseaux-Tempête is plumbing the depths of their vast archives to polish jewels of jazzy noise and well-paced post-rock.'
"Unworks & Rarities donne dans l'ascensionnel sanglant, la montée métaphysique, le renversement de toutes les valeurs de la pop érigé en sentiment. Fatalement, c'est du lourd, et c'est très impressionnant."
