MARCOEUR, ALBERT : Celui Ou y'a Joseph
This was the fourth LP released by the impeccable Marcoeurs, whose releases were greeted more like novels or movies than collections of songs - in recognition of the whole worlds created in them. Here are families of instruments combined in unusual and perplexing ways, the family approach to percussion - augmented by household objects, Albert's narrative singing/acting, and a Brian Wilson tinged approach to arrangement and deployment of sonorities. Immense care and attention to detail, flawless performance, great recording...and no fat. Dear dead days.
