Impressed and charmed by Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul’s acclaimed ‘lost’ avant-pop opus , a host of artists from all over the place have launched into reinterpretations of the songs from Ex-Futur Album.
The result is this, a full album containing 16 reinterpretations (covers and reworks) created by:
Jaakko Eino Kalevi (the young Finnish artist, whose latest album of strange elegant pop is out on Domino)
Forever Pavot (the illegitimate son of Ennio Morricone and The Zombies?)
Marc Collin (the French composer who is the brain behind projects such as Nouvelle Vague)
Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab’s legendary voice, now a solo artist)
Lena Willikens (one of Germany’s rising DJs)
Bullion (aka eccentric London popster Nathan Jenkins)
Flavien Berger (the rising star of French electro pop)
Aquaserge (the formidable & influential experimental pop band)
Capitol K (another great British eccentric, musician & producer Kristian Craig Robinson)
Nite Jewel (California’s Ramona Gonzalez, known for her conceptual revisitation of 80s pop/dance)
Hello Skinny (London’s Tom Skinner, who collaborates with the likes of Grime, Matthew Herbert and Mulatu Astatke)
Burnt Friedman (the eminent German electronic music artist)
Easy & C.O.U. (the Norwegian duet who are exponents of the joyful underground style known as ‘skweee’)
Bérangère Maximin (the rebellious electroacoustic composer and sonic sculptor)
…and, last but not least, the 2016 line-up of Aksak Maboul, with two freshly-recorded “self-covers”, with surprise appearances by members of Kasai Allstars and Aquaserge.
