Une Feuille Noire – Etrange Cercle


La feuille au fond du puit…




Un an…
Il y a des groupes que l’on découvre au détour d’un rayon.
On ne connait strictement rien d’eux.
On a la chance que la borne d’écoute reconnaisse le code barre du CD.
On a la chance d’écouter le premier titre.
On a la chance d’avoir quelques euros dans sa poche, et on achète, à l’aveugle, pleinement convaincu des 3 premières minutes, en lâchant mentalement un “Putain la claque, je garde le reste pour chez moi, j’achète!”







Le Digipack déjà, ultra classieux, surtout pour un groupe indépendant “anonyme”. (Un trio Nantais)
Très noir, nous distinguons néanmoins une school-girl avachie, inerte, comme soutenue par des fils de marionnettistes invisibles…
On ouvre, un CD, un DVD.
Et quelques phrases énigmatiques.
Et je repete, le boitier, de l’art à son design en passant par ce qu’il contient, est vraiment excellent, j’adore.



LE titre, c’est Activate première piste du Cd.
Une voix féminine fantomatique, sur le fil, légère. Quelques grésillements pour envelopper le tout. Mais Des la première minute, un son Enorme débarque sans prévenir. Le beat grince comme jamais, c’est âpre, métallique, dur. Ce rythme m’a laissé sans voix à son premier assaut.
On obtient 5 minutes de Trip-Hop glaçant, industriel, crasseux au possible. C’est noir comme la mort. Au casque la sanction est immédiate.
Comme entendre un morceau de Portishead, où Goeff Barrow aurait troqué ses platines contre un rouleau compresseur.


Démence commence directement sur une grosse nappe de sons indus mais aériens au possible… ce n’est plus la rythmique qui est abrasive, mais la texture sonore en elle même. Cette piste me fait penser au “Spaced” d’Alif Tree, mais enterré sous 10 mètres de cadavres. (Au passage, disque immanquable que ce “Spaced”)


Syncope Mentale assure le nécessaire avec des basses fracassantes, lourdes au possible, clochettes innocentes et une guitare criant brièvement la mort. Le texte est en français, ce qui étonnera au premier abord. (Texte ne laissant transparaître aucune lueur d’espoir.). Chanson laissant sa place au destructeur Kikoïne avec toujours un son de synthé sorti d’outre tombe, ultra crade, le Sieur et la Dame se partageant le micro.




La suite fera presque dans le sans faute, avec un Incolore semblant tout droit sorti des ténèbres, avec des basses presque hardcore et une mélodie chargé et menaçante. Le break laissant place à une sorte d’orgue n’en est pas moins angoissant, pour repartir de plus belle dans les sonorités du commencement. Petit bémol pour le chanteur, qui en fait un peu trop sur ce coup là, la voix pouvant quelque peu gêner l’immersion dans le sarcophage. Never en prendra le contre pied, avec un synthé grave mais “clair”, et une atmosphère beaucoup apaisée. Le male en fait encore un tout petit peu trop, et l’on accueille avec bénédiction la Dame Lilou et du troisieme compere “DNA”, qui portent le morceau vers des hauteurs transperçant les nuages noirs et épais des prémices de la piste.


Nous passerons Too proud, Too pretty qui est surtout Too pas grand chose, le morceau restant sur la même ligne du haut de ses 6 minutes… Seule déception de l’album, ce qui est d’autant plus préjudiciable car le rythme défoncé est excellent et la guitare très belle…


Mais la conclusion de la galette sera heureusement amenée avec brio grâce au génial Conditio², suivant de très près le magnifique premier Activate
Tout en progression, le morceau prend son temps avec des nappes sombres et crades enveloppant la voix de Lilou.
Tout accélère, le rythme se fait de plus en plus appuyé, une guitare intervient, c’est excellent. Un peu comme un morceau d’Ezekiel période Barbary, toujours en plus sombre.





Le DVd lui, offre une autre facette du projet, avec trois clips et un court métrage accompagné d’une version de “Never” étirée sur 10 minutes. (Sans compter les photos de hautes qualités et autres “goodies”.


Je me doute que ce CD ne fera que peu d’adepte. Déjà certains n’encadrent pas les trips “Sombres” tirant vers le “Torturé”, le “Gothique” d’un point de vue visuel (j’aime pas ce mot utilisé pour cataloguer tout et n’importe quoi, mais cela vous donne au moins le “contour” de ce que je veux vous décrire.) La pochette faisant foi, on est pas là pour se marrer. Mais la musique en est tellement profonde et âpre, que tout ce qui l’entoure en apparaît subitement et clairement justifié.
Ce qui est d’autant plus étonnant que ce groupe Electro / Trip-hop / Indus sort donc de la scène électronique, et non pas de l’engorgée scène rock drapée de noir et de corbeaux…


Les seuls petits problèmes que l’on pourrait soulever sont les textes du mec un peu trop… “Trop”, tout comme sa voix, sur deux titres.
Pour le Reste, c’est juste du tout bon, avec du coté feminin (predominant) la Lilou portant le disque de sa voix faussement timide, désespérée, tentant de se frayer un chemin dans l’amas de métal agencé autour d’elle. L’Ambiance est étouffante au possible, on est pris à la gorge (notamment sur Activate), les reperes sont perdus, comme dans une marche funebre faite d’acier…




Et surtout, ils ont leur propre univers, bien loin des clichés de la musique actuelle, qu’il soit visuel (DVD ultra travaillé) comme sonore. Ils n’ont pas l’air de tricher. Et c’est sûrement le plus important.



Imaginez Massive attack période “Mezzanine” se faire sodomiser par Manu Le Malin, Avec Nine Inch Nails les saignant au fer rouge.






Et écoutez “Activate” bon dieu !

    Et je suis logiquement d’accord avec ta chronique dessus, pour les autres morceaux, j’peux pas dire, mis à part que ça me donne envie 😀

  2. kermalex Says:

    Excellent ce “une feuille noire”, merci de m’avoir permis de découvrir ça! 😀
    Et tu as décidément très bon goût, vu que tu aimes Alif Tree (meme si l’album “french cuisine” est bien moins bon que “spaced”)

  3. Dat' Says:

    Effectivement “Spaced” n’est pas égalé par son successeur… J’en attendait trop peut etre… :/ Mais quel artiste. Dommage qu’il soit peu connu. (comme “une feuille noire” d’ailleurs)
