L'Eclair - Sauropoda LPBeyond Beyond Is Beyond
L'Eclair's "Sauropoda" LP was recorded in an undisclosed location in the mountains over the course of two days in October 2018. The music is freer than ever…it was captured live in the studio, there are very few overdubs, and it's mega-organic. Think of it as a 2am Youtube rabbit-hole find, or that weird-looking soviet prog funk private press that you knew you should've bought the one time you came across it in the bins.
In fact, it actually sounds more like a L'Eclair live show...blended with carefully-crafted dance floor grooves, last-minute studio fantasies, and fully-faded late night jams. L'Eclair is all about the blending of things, and those things never sound the same twice; endlessly morphing like the human machine itself.
"Sauropoda" is the way L'Eclair sounds right now in proto-groove's golden age. But don't let your head get in the way and try too hard to classify this music. Instead focus on the the way "Sauropoda" makes you f.e.e.l. and take your time and make it last.
