MARCOEUR, ALBERT: 'L'
An extraordinary new CD from Albert and his brothers - and many guest musicians. As always these are meticulously crafted songs, eccentric, brilliantly arranged and now opened out into a whole new world of sounds and treatments as they struggle through old cinema soundtracks, aural fog, nostalgia, distortion, interference or a dizzy, dreamlike aural Sargasso sea of trailing weeds. Diffuse, yet with every detail pin sharp. Remarkable. I had to listen three times to find it and that's always a good sign. L
