brantly A bit more experimental for DCQ&D, but still a stunning song that sounds like eerie, Lynche-ean jazz musicians from another dimension. Witxes create a very cool eno-scape with some jarring atmospherics and moments that I can best describe as Hammock doing a soundtrack for a horror movie.

about

Brand new split by Witxes and Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones.

Scene Point Blank

"Uneasy listening at its best"
Textura

The Arts Desk

"A gloriously oppressing release"
TapeFear

"Witnessing this holy orgy of painful drones and ground shattering pulses, I sincerely wonder what more could you possibly ask for"
Culture is not your friend

"Breathtakingly good!"
De Subjectivisten

"Dans son concept, l'album s'avère à la fois déstabilisant et pourtant totalement passionnant [...]"
new Noise Magazine

"Witxes bring something surprisingly accessible to ambient and drone music something with thundering climaxes underwritten by danceable beats and erupting, post-rock surges"
4ZZZ FM Brisbane


Press release:
This split constitutes an exciting collaboration of these two French experimental/avant-garde/dark jazz acts. In mutual respect and appreciation, both DALE COOPER QUARTET and WITXES selected a track of their split companion and created a fundamental and independent rework of around 20 minutes length.

Based upon parts of Witxes' "The Apparel" -- from the last album "A Fabric of Beliefs" -- and afternoon summer recording sessions, the DALE COOPER QUARTET's "Le Strategie Saint-Frusquin" contains the classic sounds of the Quartet: ambient soundscapes, lazy jazzy rhythms, drone and distorsion guitar and a deep saxophone breath. Being mostly instru- mental, the deep tone of Ronan Mac Erlaine's voice comes to ease the stormy start of the music piece. A grainy and blissful track that resembles music coming through of a 50s radio speaker, letting dark jazz flooding the room.

"Pisces Analogue" is a new WITXES piece based on "Nourrain Quinquet", a track from "Quatorze pièces de menaces" by Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones. In five movements, the track explores the interstices and cracks of the dark, minimalist, lurking, cycle-evolving original piece. It offers to take a look at some of its nooks, focus on a few of its endless micro-universes and jump from one to another in a flash. Just like swimming in a puzzling dream. If there is anything in common with previous Witxes output, it is a strong sense of motion as well as narration to be seized by the listener. Though this piece uses heavily processed instruments takes from "Nourrain Quinquet" as well as a few typical Witxes field recordings, it is Witxes most synthetic work to date. It was written, recorded and mixed in 3 weeks during summer of 2014 in Lyon and co-produced by Michael Mysak.
