EXEK "Some Beautiful Species Left" LP (SDZ024)

-- English version below (click on "more") --

Originaire de Melbourne (Australie), EXEK présente son troisième album" Some Beautiful Species Left". Le disque est sorti sur SDZ (Europe), Digital Regress (USA) et Anti-Fade (Australie). Comme leurs disques précédents, "Some Beautiful Species Left" doit beaucoup à la philosophie de Brian Eno du studio comme instrument: il y a en effet une certaine culture du montage et des overdubs. Cette approche permet au songwriting de se développer en parallèle du procédé d'enregistrement tout en favorisant une plus grande maîtrise sonique. Post punk serait probablement une catégorie facile à apposer à leur musique. D'abord pour un certain côté post-moderne et ensuite pour la défiance inhérente au punk. Mais la musique d'EXEK contient aussi des éléments de production dub, des arrangements classiques, des rythmes hip-hop ou kraut-rock ou encore l'utilisation d’ustensiles de cuisine comme instruments. Le résultat est finalement un disque assez difficile à catégoriser, quelque part entre Swell Maps, This Heat et ESG.

Après une tournée réussie aux USA en 2018, EXEK a effectué une tournée européenne en Septembre 2019. La tournée était présentée par Upset The Rhythm, Puschen Booking et Future Folklore. EXEK se prononce "exec", raccourci pour executive.

From Melbourne Australia, EXEK are proud to unveil their third album, “Some Beautiful Species Left”. It has been released on SDZ (Europe), Digital Regress (USA), and Anti-Fade (Aus). Like their previous releases, SBSL is the cultivation of numerous edits and overdubs, where once again EXEK subscribe to Brian Eno’s philosophy of the studio as an instrument. This MO allows the songwriting process to develop simultaneously alongside the recording process, whilst privileging greater sonic control. Post punk is perhaps the easiest way to categorise the music. Firstly, because they’re post modern, and secondly because their music contains the defiance inherent within punk. But EXEK's music also contain elements of dub production, Classical arrangements, hip hop and krautrock rhythms, and the use of kitchen appliances as instruments. The result is a record that is difficult to pigeon hole...somewhere between Swell Maps, This Heat and ESG.

After 2018's successful tour of the US, EXEK embarked on their first European visit in September 2019. The tour was presented by Upset The Rhythm, Puschen booking, and Future Folklore. EXEK is pronounced ‘exec’, short for executive.
