FranticCity tosses in two bonus tracks on Émile Sornin’s reissue of his first EP. The original 2012 7” of space rock voodoo out of Paris cut, “Le penitent le passé” and “Christophe Colombe”—long haired, guitar-heavy tracks dusted with Hindi vocals. A year later, “Palestine” and “Sable Mouvant” are tossed into the mix, spiraling Pavot into the realm of Tame Impala’s neo-psychedelic guitar buzz with vocals taking a back seat. One a ‘60s era hypnotic built to accompany a Mario Bava death scene, the other, a tidal wave of guitars like New Zealand’s Kraus laced with violin. Sornin has since laid more vocals on his work, so pick this up for atmospheric soundtracky stuff. Recommended.
