Les Louise Mitchels/Sex Drugs & Rebetiko – Split (2009)



  • Art punk 
  • World music 
  • Improvised music 
  • Folk punk 
  • Crossover 
  • Surf rock 
  • Drone folk 
  • Avant-folk

Comment: Les Louise Mitchels` 6-notch part is an intense blend of artsy punk, dadaist attitude and Balkan/gypsy brass folk punk. But also surf music allusions are up there to provide a more puzzled soundscape. The France-based artist has managed to set a fast pace through the noodling on hirsute guitars, woodwinds, and drums where one can partake in repetitive patterns, improvised progressions and something else between the approaches.


Sex Drugs & Rebetiko`s 3-track is a different story because it is more subdued and restrained due to slowly progressing drones in the vein of folk music. Furthermore, it seems to  me that some phrases are sung in Greek and beside that distinct characteristic there are up obvious patterns from Greek ethnic music. The interesting split is a part of the Les Diks Qui Sautent (ldqs 068).
