Riding high on the widespread acclaim for its 2017 album Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much, genre-bending Montreal quartet Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche is thrilled to be bringing its superb live show back to European stages this spring.
 
Over the past few years, the psychedelic kraut-funk band has established itself as something of a Montréal supergroup – its members have been active in this city’s experimental rock communities for well over a decade, including participation in Panopticon Eyelids, Pas Chic Chic, Red Mass, Set Fire to Flames, and, from the Constellation roster, Fly Pan Am – gaining a reputation for irresistible and levitational live sets combining a traditional rock quartet formation (two guitars, bass, drums) with dayglo avant-electronics to forge longform motorik instrumental workouts driven by infectiously angular, rubbery grooves and peppered with strange, invented-language vocals.
 

ACCLAIM FOR PAS PIRE POP, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH:

“Avec Le Soleil are in production of a great transcendence…at once ambitiously progressive, admirably methodical and unassumingly joyous. This band achieves so much. Profoundly enjoyable”.
THE QUIETUS
 
“Some of the most trancelike music every to grace the Constellation roster…a glorious record.”
THE WIRE
 
“The second album from the Montreal avant-funk super-group showcases the most innovative ideas from experimental rock, combining irresistible grooves with a smorgasbord of avant-garde ideasin a record that is astonishing in its inventiveness.”
THE SKINNY ****
 
“Intense grooves of Afro-prog psych: 10 tracks, three ‘movements’, a rump-shaking whole.”
MOJO ****
 
“A great collection of psychedelia. It’s all tight yet far-out. Wonderfully free-thinking and uninhibited. This needs a place in your heart.”
VANGUARD

Revisit Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche’s latest release Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much: a heady mix of psychedelic rock, krautrock, desert rock, punk rock, noise rock, afrobeat, experimental pop, post-rock, and electronic influences thrown into a blender and served with enough creativity and joy to render the sounds totally fresh. The quartet deploys a panoply of buoyant musical ideas, subtly sumptuous sonic treatments, and playful stylistic nods — while remaining fundamentally devoted to working the groove, from however many angles. Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche’s unique restlessness and inventiveness seduces with shifts, turns and dovetails, bubbling forth with ideas and consistently destabilizing its own inexorable musical logic in highly satisfying fashion. Above all, their sound always seems to be escaping overt homage or retro tendencies; neither freighted with reverence nor weightless with irreverence, the music of Avec le soleil routes and uproots itself along its own refreshingly untrodden path.
