Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul - Ex-Futur Album

The LP and CD versions come with a download code for the full album + 3 extra exclusive bonus tracks. Strictly limited deluxe LP edition on 180gr vinyl, incl. gatefold & inner sleeves and lyric sheet.

This record was never completed. What was originally intended to become the third album by Aksak Maboul (the seminal band formed by Marc Hollander with Congotronics producer Vincent Kenis) had gradually evolved into a strange artefact, closely mingling (iconic Honeymoon Killers chanteuse) Véronique Vincent’s dreamy vocals and deceptively bubbly lyrics with Hollander’s musical ramblings. Electronic pop music with genre-wrecking leanings. But the project (too pop to be experimental? too quirky for early ‘80s pop?) was dropped at some point, and life went on.

When they were ‘rediscovered’ three decades later, it seemed obvious that the songs had aged delightfully well, and that they probably make a lot more sense now than they did then...
So here’s that Ex-Future Album, assembled, mixed and/or edited from demos and rough mixes (some of them on cassette tapes), and brought to you in its original glorious unfinished state, with a slight delay of 30 years.

This most unusual story is far from being the only point of interest of Ex-Future Album: the songs overflow with memorable melodies, with playful trademark Aksak Maboul instrumental moments and eventful arrangements which all give the album a retrofuturistic, almost timeless aspect, often predating certain hybrid musical trends which may or may not have emerged later on (think pop meets proto-techno, with African, Middle-Eastern, dub, jazz & cinematic French flavours...)

Reviews

"[This is] electro-pop ambrosia, combining the scampering drum-machine textures and gamine charm of Young Marble Giants with sexy, supple, "ethnological forgery" rhythms" (Record Collector, UK)
