AIDS Wolf Ma vie banale avant-garde Album Details, Preorder and US Tour Dates.

September 15, 2011

Montreal’s AIDS Wolf are very proud to announce the release of their fourth lp and first double lp, titled Ma vie banale avant-garde on October 4th, 2011. The album was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA and produced by AIDS Wolf.

The corpus of songs recorded for the album were written over the course of a year as the band shifted from its more formal work to a sound more focused on polyrhythm and flowing, elastic tempos. Fields of dissonant guitar and demented, lurching tempos, on further listens, give way to pixelated pop forms albeit with a detuned loner dinosaur in its spotlight. There’s no denying that the re-energized trio sounds like a whole new band on Ma vie banale avant-garde.

In AIDS Wolf’s compositional approach the band “learns its mistakes”, composing songs by learning improvised passages off blown out cassette tapes recorded on a trusty GE tape portable device. Aiming to dampen the repetition endemic in most music, AIDS Wolf adds elements of chance and non-repetitive phrasing. Songs evolve organically and seem to continue to evolve even after having been “Fixed” on record.

In this frame AIDS Wolf remains devoted to forwarding and refining their musical vision; seeking new musical challenges for themselves as artists and for their audience.

AIDS Wolf have always brought a fine art vision to their take onnoise. With their fourth album, ‘Ma vie banale avant-garde,’
AIDS Wolf have refined this vision far beyond any of their previous work. Of course, bleeding edge experimental music that challenges both artist and audience is definitely the road less taken.

So it is a great honor that AIDS Wolf will celebrate the release of ‘Ma vie banale avant-garde’ at Quebec’s largest museum of modern art, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.

While launch party attendees will have the unique opportunity to wear
3D glasses while watching AIDS Wolf perform inside of eye popping visuals, all that come in AIDS Wolf’s path this fall will be getting an experience unlike any before. The band’s new focus on polyrhythm and flowing, elastic tempos is captured with startling clarity on ‘Ma vie banale avant-garde’. Their works continue to evolve as the band writes in ‘mistakes’ to their compositions with every new performance. Seeing AIDS Wolf live is to bear witness to their creative process as much as it is to their established mastery of mutating tempos and fields of dissonance.

‘Ma vie banale avant-garde’ comes out Oct 4th on Lovepump United in double LP format.
