LES DISCRETS - Septembre Et Ses Dernieres Pensees CD
Well I'm a stupid fuck. So I'm checking this debut release out by LES DISCRETS because it's mainman, Fursy Teyssier, was in AMESOEURS and ALCEST. Both of those bands have questionable Metal merits to start with especially ALCEST's latest release. So I was hoping it would be more towards AMESOEURS and their JOY DIVISION goes Black Metal style. Wrong! I thought ALCEST's last release was shoegazer hell but this is even further into that realm of air fart sounds. How mellow can you go, along with plenty of folkish acoustic guitar strumming, before you draw the line and say it's not metal? This could be played in French elevators if that gives you an idea. I'm getting the feeling of wanting to make a crape now. Look with all due respect to Fursy this release has a very beautiful ambient sound, it's what the hipsters call dark folk and there's some hints of Metal within but this is just so fucking boring.
