After several months off, Plastic Spoons Records comes back in great shape and is therefore thrilled to present its new release, the solo single of Vincent, ex-guitar player of the Parisian garage / post punk band Crash Normal which has under its belt several albums on the most talented US and European labels.
Illustrator and cartoonist, this multidisciplinary artist began writing solo material in his studio apartment with the main objective of trying his hand at making personal and upstanding music, totally exempt from compromise. The winning and charming results can be considered on this 7”.
It is very hard to label such a project, which could be too easily described as post-garage. The Brain and The Door exude simplicity, profundity and depth and these two tracks push this band and genre into uncharted territory.
Vincent opens his brain, like a box in which various influences are assimilated and blended. These influences are always borderline and often imbued with urban anomie: they vacillate between the cold electro (with an early 80s German feel) and a deviant garage. To that may be added psychedelic marks and iconoclast stamps which give to the overall material an unfathomed expansion emphasized by repetitions and a sensory distortion. You will listen to the single in the same way that you would open a treasure box, in which a harmonious set of consubstantial contradictions, full of humble humanity, would have been locked up by a bitter and realistic genius.
Being alternately boiling hot and ice-cold, dark and bright, real and ethereal, mesmerizing and atmospheric, Vincent’s music is undoubtedly the expression of all the contradictions that haunt and obsess us.
