Fans of minimal music will certainly be aware of the little Italian Avant-label that publishes magnificent releases on a quite regular base. Mostly these are gems that have only been distributed by some DIY-label where only the freaky/die-hard fans have heard of.

This time label manager Andrea picked up Contrepoison, a musical project formed by Canadian Pierre-Marc Tremblay who used to play in more extreme bands.

Anyway, we consider this as the minimal side from Pierre-Marc and so far he released two tapes under this moniker.

Both "Around the Dragon's broken neck hangs the medal of St. Lazarus" and "Until Next morning" immediately were sold out.

Luckily enough Avant! Decided to give "Until Next Morning" a vinyl release, limited to 350 copies.

On this EP you can find four tracks that are analogue as analogue can be. Sad synths and drum machines that are sounding as if they want to accentuate the boredom that life can be.

Best track on here is without any doubt "Heartbeat" that has an magical 80’s-feel where as title song "Until Next Morning" comes quite close to the industrial sound from Cold Cave.

Many words where as the essence is that Avant published another fantastic release!

Liefhebbers van het minimal genre zullen wellicht reeds gehoord hebben van het kleine Italiaanse label Avant dat regelmatig releases weet uit te brengen van het soort waar je meestal de vingers van aflikt.

Vaak zijn het releases die eerder in de underground in pure DIY-stijl zijn uitgebracht en later opgepikt werden door labelbaas Andrea.

Ook deze Contrepoison is daar een mooi voorbeeld van en staat voor de muzikale avonturen van de Canadees Pierre-Marc Tremblay die de afgelopen jaren in heel wat andere bands zat die je eerder onder de noemer extreem zou plaatsen.

Dit project is echter Pierre-Marc's ode aan de minimal scene.

De twee releases die deze Contrepoison tot nu toe uitgebracht heeft is "Around the Dragon's broken neck hangs the medal of St. Lazarus" en deze "Until Next morning", beide tapereleases die in een mum van tijd uitverkocht raakten.

Avant nam echter het gelukkig besluit om "Until Next Morning" als vinyl-EP terug her uit te brengen (gelimiteerd op 350 exemplaren).

Op deze EP vind je vier nummers in de meest analoge zin van het woord waarbij synthesizers meer droevig klinken dan ooit en waarbij het lijkt of de drummachines de verveling van het leven in de verf willen zetten.

Uitschieter is zonder twijfel "Heartbeat" dat een heerlijk 80's gevoel heeft terwijl, titeltrack "Until Next Morning" vrij dicht aanleunt bij het vroeger (industrieel) werk van Cold Cave.

Veel woorden om u te zeggen dat dit wederom een fantastische Avant-release is.

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
