Faune - Volatil LP
LP, 150 copies. Lo-Fi. Silkscreen printed thick folder cover with stamped label. Comes with interview of the band.
Faune is a duo featuring Guilhem Lacroux (Toad, La Baracande, Tanz Mein Herz) on guitar and lapsteel as well as Jacques Puech (Jericho, Duo Puech-Gourdon ...) on voice, bagpipes, shruti box and glass harmonica. The traditional themes they play are solely taken from the Cantal territory (Auvergne), a very rich and diversified area in terms of musical heritage. Both musicians here aim for a minimal approach, using their amps only to generate the lowest, most haunting melodies and drone possible, thus enabling a very rich and variation-full breeding ground for the voice (sung in French and Occitan). Recorded on their first live appearance, this session is, in all it's fragility, a beautiful document where both musicians are captured in full devotion to the Music.
Recorded by the band in Fontaine St.Martin (2012). Mastered by Frederic Alstadt. Artwork by Sauvage, hand-typo by Druid High. Printed by Olivier Bral.
