Description

Brand new studio release from Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp on the Moi J'Connais Label (Mama Rosin, Imperial Tiger Orchestra) Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp presents ROTOROTOR, a thrilling third album produced by John Parish (P.J Harvey, Eels, Giant Sand, Dominique A) and recorded by Ali Chant at Toybox Studio in Bristol. ROTOROTOR (a nod to Duchamp's famous rotoreliefs and to the latter's taste for palindromes) is a manifesto for free and adventurous music, organised in versatile pop songs; playful and fervent, incandescent, funny and impetuous, assuming without ostentation a sort of fragmented futurist traditionalism, combining festivity and war, wedding dances and battle-cries. Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp (roughly translated as "All Mighty Orchestra Marcel Duchamp") is a name with a programme. It not only refers to some of the most legendary bands from West-Africa (Orchestre Tout Puissant Konono n°1, Orchestre Tout Puissant Polyrythmo etc. etc.) but also to one of the biggest dynamiters of 20th century art. Around Vincent Bertholet's obstinate double bass riffs, Maël Saletes' striking and stumbling guitar lines keep up a hypnotic dialogue. The melodic counterpoint of Aïda Diop's marimba, here voluble and danceable, there more pointillistic, and Mathias Forge's trombone, groove impeccably along on the drumming of Wilf Plum (who we know from the legendary Dog Faced Hermans, a notable influence on OTPMD) whose playing lays down a groove of soul shivers and rhythm 'n' blues syncopation.
