Artist: Le Révélateur (@)
Title: Hyper
Format: 12"
Label: Dekorder
Rated: *****
Dekorder's griffin seems to have been rested for a while after its 10th birthday, but its first flutters over the rugged land of electronics of 2016 are really interesting and feed the Hybrid Vinyl Series that came after the celebration of the first decade of Marc Richter's imprint. One of these flutters - the ninth of the above-mentioned series - came from Le Révélateur, a project I've never heard before, led by Roger Tellier-Craig, formerly a collaborator of many Montreal-based bands (Set Fire To Flames, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Fly Pan Am) and soundtrack of many nice clips by video artist Sabrina Ratté. This picture single-sided vinyl includes just a couple of tracks, where he digs into interesting (supposedly laptop-driven) electronic explorations, where sets of seemingly amorphous and sometimes disorganized buzzes, bleeps and clangs sound like ascending and finding a sort of ethereal mirroring in the initial "Imagineers Are Governed" and shaking like crazily unstable particles in a molecular accelerator, whose structures are like fractured holograms that got pushed towards annihilation on "Fakeaway Haptics". Once upon a time, someone could have labelled releases (or revelations) like Roger's ones as "glitch"...
