ALT06: Élg - Mil Pluton (Second Edition)
£10.00 / On Sale
After selling out in just over a month when released last year, Élg's incredible Mil Pluton LP is back in print. This is an all new edition featuring revised artwork on reverse board jackets.
Élg is Laurent Gerard. Since 2000 Élg has made a name for himself in the experi-mental underground performing solo in venues across Europe and the USA and also in the trio Reines D’Angleterre with Jo Tanz and Ghedalia Tazartes. Over the years he has built a complex body of work which has been spread amongst reputa-ble labels such as Kraak, SS, Lal Lal Lal, Taped Sounds and Nashazphone. Now, four years since his debut ‘Tout Ploie’, Alter and Hundebiss present ‘Mil Pluton’, the second Élg album on vinyl. In that time Gerard has knuckled down with a bunch of new gear and built a fresh sound which is difficult to categorize but still carries many of the characteristics of his previous work. One can hear EBM-esque rhythms, scalpel-sharp Musique Concréte style editing, dense layers of swampy electronics which open up the same hypnotic spirals that the Élg of old did, but it’s Laurent’s unique approach to songwriting and composition Vocally, Élg has evolved beyond conventional language and now works with an Es-peranto-like form of alien linguistics to front the sonic mass. If your musical interests sit within the realm of outer limits electronics and have been drawn towards the work of Throbbing Gristle, Bernard Szajner, Coil and Tazartes then look no further. ‘Mil Pluton’ also features musical contributions from Jo Tanz, Jean-Philippe Gross, Bill Kouligas (PAN), TG Gondard and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu / Kemialliset Ystavat). All tracks were composed, record and mixed by Élg in Brussels in 2011, then mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin in December of that same year, and pressed lovingly onto 150g vinyl by Alter and Hundebiss in September 2012. Second edition repressed on 150g vinyl into colour reverse board jackets. Élg will tour Europe throughout May / June 2013.
