Deprived of sanity, Paul R├ęgimbeau aka Mondkopf found new territories of expression with Spring Stories, a collection of post-rapture moods full of glorious chaos, ready to absorb and re-ignite all that is worn. As a phoenix raising from the ashes, Spring Stories captures the earth in full bloom. Darkness and insanity loosen its grips as the roots and fresh leaves creates a slow dance towards the sun. Similarly, sine-wave drones move around exploding electric guitar improvisations as new light beams on shadow cast corners. The album feels like a '60s jam set in the post-world psychedelic underground. Heavy, absurd, beautiful, and ready to sooth burnt out, depleted minds. Paul has citied that he's affected as much by folk improvisors such as Master Wilburn Burchette and Robbie Basho as well as the doom drone of giants Earth and Sunn O))). Spring Stories invokes on these, while feeling like a personal blow-out, coming right from the core. Touching and grand, like spring itself. The album also features Frederic D. Oberland on two tracks playing variously duduk and alto saxophone. Lastly, The Necks drummer Tony Buck shakes and rattles all over the final -- and seriously epic -- piece "Continuation", as the world aligns while the sun rises over its near-dead shape. Digipak; edition of 200.
