We’re enjoying Wierd Records. There’s always been Xeno & Oaklander, Martial Canterel, and my upstairs neighbor Epee du Bois as well as associations with old pal Mark Solotroff, aka Chicago’s Bloodyminded, via label head Pieter Schoolwerth. The recent fixation started with Parisian BTW Frank (Just Frank) and continued to Automelodi via “Rose A.D..” Today we dig deeper into the Montreal group’s excellent new album with a stylish Op Art-esque Jimi Patterson-directed video for “Schéma Corporel.” As mentioned last time, it’s a diverse collection. If you haven’t heard it, the clip should give you the beginnings of a bigger impression.
Automelodi is out 7/13 via Wierd. The release show’s 7/23 at Glasslands in Brooklyn with Martial Canterel and DJs Mike Sniper (Blank Dogs) and Katie Rose (of Further Reductions).
