mɛlədi nɔɪz The soundscapes are tapestries of textures creating sounds that convey honour and presence. It's angelic yet anarchy, pure yet poisoned. A truly dignified EP which I feel is organic and opulent.

Fate Katana

Four titles in four rounds, turn to clear, turn to dark, with thuds, rich without being fat, punchy, liquid, deep and breathless, which could have been played 20 years ago in Bristol or the Tresor at 8 in the morning. Upon first listen, the conductive vital pulsation of the EP evokes the heart of a Japanese sword from its conception until its final battle.

Fable of Contents:
A1- Who Are You -The Forge. Bathed birth by vapours, paced by the blower and the ham- mer.
A2- Where Are You -The Apnea. Setbacks, dissonances, power revealed in the midst of chaos.
B1- When Are You -Hunt. Anxiety and chase down the drains.
B2- Which Are You -The Assault. Tribal. Drums, the sword is in the hand of an army in the
starting blocks. Meditation, calm, total attack.

It is a painting on frequencies that gives us this new volume of the Japanese craftsman Yaporigami, scour your ears before to see it.

Le Destin du Katana

Quatre titres pour quatre épreuves, tour à tour clairs, obscures, aux sons mats, riches sans être gras, percutant, liquides, profonds, clos et haletants, qui auraient pu être joués 20 ans plus tôt à Bristol ou au Trésor à 8 heure du matin. Dès la première écoute, la pulsation vitale conductrice de l’EP nous évoque celle du cœur d’un sabre japonais, de sa conception jusqu’à son combat final.

Fable des Matières :
A1- Who Are You -La Forge. Naissance baignée de vapeurs, rythmée par la soufflerie et les coups de marteaux.
A2- Where Are You -L’Apnée. Contretemps, dissonances, la puissance révélée au milieu du chaos.
B1- When Are You -La Traque. Angoisse et course poursuite dans les égouts.
B2- Which Are You -L’Assaut. Tribal. Tambours, le sabre est en main d’une armée dans les
starting-blocks. Méditation, calme, attaque totale.

C’est une peinture sur fréquences que nous livre ce nouveau volume de l’artisan nippon Yaporigami, décrassez-vous les oreilles avant de la voir.
