Debut album by the French 4-piece Rien Virgule (members are Mathias Pontévia, Jean-Marc Reilla, Anne Careil and Manuel Duval [also of France Sauvage / La République des Granges fame]) where they deliver 6 strict, desolate, stomp pumping, cold modular-wave pieces with doses of synth-punk and electro-acoustic terror. Deranged female vocals, analog keyboard mayhem and spacious ambiance form a setting for deep subconscious nightmare plays. Put on your costumes and join the troupe.
Edition of 500 copies in pro-printed full color jackets. Co-released with Animal Biscuit, La République des Granges, Attila Tralala, Perma Frost, Micr0lab & Do it Youssef.
released October 27, 2015
DIGITAL ‘ALBUM’ MANIFESTO:
Phase! doesn’t support digital sales. Every single artist’s hard work has been represented by a physical release, like it should. Bandcamp doesn’t allow the “Enable / Disable Download” checkbox anymore, that’s why we’ve priced every release with a ridiculous amount of hard-earned money so that no one downloads it. It’s up there for all of you to listen to and we’re pretty sure there are lots of ways to make it yours if you want to –with very minimum digital and analog hacking skills– but the music up there, on the Phase! Bandcamp page, is just a virtual reference. Nothing more. If you want to support the artists, please buy music (digital also, if you insist, some do that and we’re totally fine with it) from their Bandcamp pages. If you want to support the label, please buy the old-fashioned, good-looking physical goods and you won’t regret it.
