The first thing that grabs you about Altin Gün"s new album is the energy. With Ask, the Amsterdam-based sextet turn away from the electronic, synth-drenched sound of their 2021 albums, Alem and Yol. While those two, created at home during the pandemic, paid homage to the electronic pop of the 80s and early 90s, Ask, marks an exuberant return to the 70s Anatolian folk-rock sound that characterised Altin Gün"s first two albums, On (2018) and Gece (2019). But there"s development here too. Ask is the closest the band have come so far to capturing the infectious energy of their live performances. "It"s definitely connecting more with a live sound - almost like a live album," says bassist Jasper Verhulst. "We, as a band, just going into a rehearsal space together and creating music together instead of demoing at home." "We didn"t record it like we did the last album," agrees vocalist Merve Dasdemir. "We basically produced that one at home because of the pandemic. Now we"ve gone back to recording live on tape." How many more worlds do Altin Gün visit in this joyful expedition? "Rakiya Su Katamam" is glowering space rock as though Gong had taken a stopover on the Bosphorus. "Canim Oy" is a psychedelic freak-beat stomper from a world where Istanbul"s Kadiköy district was the Carnaby Street of the east. "Güzelligin On Para Etmez" is a dreamy acid-folk anthem. And the finale, "Doktor Civanim," is an irresistible slice of sci-fi disco camp with lava-lamp synth squiggles that wouldn"t sound out of place next to Baris Manço"s "Ben Bilirim." Fresh yet timeless. Rooted in antiquity yet yearning for heavenly futures. Ask wants to take you places. All you have to do is strap yourself in

Depuis quelques temps, LUJE fait son bonhomme de chemin. Le quintet lyonnais virevolte entre indie rock, shoegaze et space-rock pour en faire un mélange détonnant qui continue de surprendre avec leur dernier disque en date du nom de Raving Track.S’ouvrant sur un « Distilled Thoughts » des plus éthérés avant de prendre le monde à contre-courant avec ce climax intense, LUJE nous promet un disque de haute volée. Tutoyant la voie lactée avec des morceaux aussi bien scintillants que percutants avec « WithoutYou » ou avec « Oblique Projection », les cinq lyonnais savent faire le juste milieu entre tension et relâchement.Raving Track regroupe de moments effrénés à la limite du noisy avec « In The Plain, Under The Halo » mais aussi plus immersifs avec le psychédélique « Whale » ou « Motorik Drumming & Sizzling Landscape » à mi-chemin entre krautrock et motorik. LUJE surprend par ces nombreux virages mais reste toujours aussi cohérent avec ses synthés cosmiques et ses guitares retentissantes avec des moments posés et aériens comme « Everyone’s Changing Forever » et « Bored » faisant un disque intense et chargé en rêverie.
