about

Un premier jet sans concession, le maître d'oeuvres de Song Namo, Philippe Thiphaine (Heliogabale), s'ingénie ici à trancher à grand coups d'électricité des paysages à l'hypnose latente mais aux détours inattendus. Riffs lourds ou fulgurants, motifs assénés ou thèmes élégants, la guitare emporte la mise, bâtissant des architectures à la fausse simplicité, fondations puissantes où explosent des fureurs soudaines, des voies de traverse insoupçonnées. Le son brûlant, proto noise, est parcouru par une voix délibérément a-mélodique et solitaire, racontée, scandée, hurlée, psalmodiée et qui renvoie au titre de l'ouvrage, Unmistakably Human. Un album assumé qui s'écoute d'une traite. Laissez-vous happer, sans retenue, vous ne le regretterez pas... Électrique je vous dis !

Track Name: driller's blues
Remember your face
Take you off the shelf
Sort all the colours
Define some new space
And another world
Gracefully unfolds
I’m swallowing the dust
I’m scraping off the rust
New dimensional trust
Remember your name
Think time is to blame
For the fading sight
Places ain’t the same
Remember your voice
Among all the noise
I’m swallowing the dust
I’m scraping off the rust
New dimensional trust
New dimensional trust
Track Name: new space

Track Name: simple appareil
Build me like a factory
Load me from your battery
Fill me with your energy
Grow me like a willow tree
A willow tree
Save me erase history
Help me recall gravity
Make me upgrade for free
Lift me from my own body
My own body
My own body
Track Name: the heaviest moon in town
Without a move, without a sound
Gravity keeps me on the ground
You cheer me up to shoot me down
My heart is the heaviest moon in town
You didn’t have to hide your face
Fingerprints all over the place
But there’s no weapon, no weapon to be found
My obsession got me lost in the crowd
Without a move, without a sound
Gravity keeps me on the ground
You cheer me up to shoot me down
My heart is the heaviest moon in town
We’ve all reached that point once
When we have to choose
Whether we learn, whether we lose
You didn’t have to hide your face
Fingerprints all over the place
But there’s no weapon, no weapon to be found
My heart is the heaviest moon in town
The heaviest moon in town
We’ve all reached that point once
When we have to choose
Whether we learn, whether we lose

Track Name: a straight circle
Relationship as a straight line, as an addiction
It’s coming back all over again
I think I get it right
I should have been no good
I didn’t want no fight
I should have been just rude
You keep on staring at me
I’m getting crazy
Relationship as a straight line, as an addiction
It’s coming back all over again
Why did I pick you up
How did I find you out
I needed to get hurt
Some vicious circle from the start
You keep on staring at me
I’m getting crazy
You keep on staring at me
I’m getting crazy
Relationship as a straight line, as an addiction
It’s coming back all over again
Relationship as a straight line, as an addiction
It’s coming back all over again
Relationship as a straight circle
Relationship as a straight circle
Relationship as a straight circle
Track Name: contemporary heart
That strange make up on your face
That something wrong with your dress
Desperate fears out of place
Awkward, messed up but a dance
That strange make up on your face
That something wrong with your dress
Desperate fears out of place
Awkward, messed up but a dance
Teach me the steps
Motion does help
Contemporary heart
No one wants to see
Contemporary heart
No one cares for free

Track Name: a sailor
Hey, it’s been a while
It’s been a while since we last hung out together
Sometimes I wonder how you would feel now
If you had sticked around
Would you have played drums on this song ?
What songs would we have written together ?
How close would we stand ?
It’s temporary of course but
You’re out of reach now
Like a sailor who fell from grace with the sea
Like a sailor who fell from grace with the sea
Like a sailor who fell from grace with the sea
Like a sailor
A sailor
Track Name: temp
The feeling’s coming back
I’m giving up for sure
Self-control stepping back
Ambiguous behavior
The feeling’s coming back
The feeling’s coming back

Deconstructed
Burned out
Deconstructed

Fragmented experience
Incomplete riddance

You came crashing at my temporary folder

The feeling’s coming back
Recalling good old ghosts
Restoring classified loss
Importing useless lacks
The feeling’s coming back

Deconstructed
Burned out
Deconstructed
Saved as images

Fragmented experience
Incomplete riddance
Fragmented experience
Incomplete riddance

You came crashing at my temporary folder
Track Name: superstrings
One of these days organs will break
My heart will beat up the skin
Superstrings blow the winds
I need to sail out to you

Set my land
Set my soul
Afire
Set my land
Set my soul
Afire

One of these nights when it sounds right
My hands will play on your skin
Superstrings blow the winds
I need to sail out to you

Set my land
Set my soul
Afire
Afire
Set my land
Set my soul
Afire
Afire
Set my land
Set my soul
Afire
Afire
Afire
Track Name: own experiment
It is no fairy tale
There is no carousel
It is no angel’s spell
There is no jingle bell

It is a red red world
Where straight lines are all curved
It is a dancing swirl
Get ready and get burned

Find it out
Sort it out
Find it out
Sort it out

Find it out
Sort it out
Find it out
Sort it out
Track Name: extended parameters
Wasting time, gaining some
Like an average hand

Outer space, inner grace
This is where I stand

Walking by, standing in line
Whichever will be fine
Oh fine

Wasting time, gaining some
Like an average hand

Outer space, inner grace
This is where I stand

Walking by, standing in line
Whichever will be fine

Wasting time, gaining some
Like an average hand

Outer space, inner grace
This is where I stand
