Alexei Borisov/Jérôme Lorichon/Olga Nosova/ Quentin Rollet

Shampanskoye
ReQords REQ 006

A pleasant oddity recorded in 2014 but not released until now, Shampanskoye combines one French duo and one Russian duo for seven quartet tracks which stir together concepts from many genres. From the Gallic side are saxophonist Quentin Rollet, who jumps between improv and avant rock sounds and Jérôme Lorichon, specialist of Buchla synthesizer playing in groups like Zombie Zombie. From the east comes guitarist Alexei Borisov, whose touchstones are Techno and experimental sounds and drummer Olga Nosova, who has played with Thomas Lehn. All contribute additional voice, electronics and effects textures. MORE
