Pre-order of Erba spontanea (LP 2020). You get 4 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.
Formed in 2014 by Anthony Fleury (Fordamage), Thibault Florent (So-lo-lo / Nist-Nah) and Etienne Ziemniak (Electric Vocuhila / BGZ Trio / Carnalisme), Mange Ferraille brings together three very distinctive backgrounds and many different - and sometimes contradictory - approaches: self-taught and academic, DIY rock and jazz, written and improvised. The band writes everything together, experiments, records, sorts things out, all to create long formats that seek to keep the trance going. The result is - almost - instrumental music, mechanical and refined but also powerful and exciting. Instrumentation is that of a typical rock band: guitar, bass/baritone guitar, drums, but the use of two organs contributes to the unique sound. Using an elaborate technique and an intense physicality with the instrument, Mange Ferraille squeezes all the hypnotic potential out of an unexpected sound matter that throws the listener in at the deep end.
Erba Spontanea is a 40 minutes song, an unexpected essence, crazy and wild, almost hallucinogenic. The rhythmic and sound exploration embraces repetitive rock, tribal percussion, Indonesian gamelan, electronic and even psychedelic music to shape an intense and hypnotic universe.
