Last week, I received a small wooden box. The box had "Les Boucles Absurdes" written on top of it and it presented a USB stick. Never afraid to put a memory stick in my pc, I plugged it in to find "Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël", the brand-new album by Les Boucles Absurdes.

Les Boucles Absurdes is Jean-Pierre Jonckheere and Pierre Vervloesem.
"Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël" (A New Foot For Christmas) is their fourth release and it's superb.

The album presents six tracks. Every track is some sort of loop. (Les Boucles Absurdes = Crazy Loops).
Floating guitar tones, extraterrestrial voices, sampled synthesizer tones, the crackling of a vinyl album, contemporary classical percussive sounds and sirens, pulsing bass lines, a Gregorian choir, ...
"Un Nouveau Pied Pour Noël" will take you on an amazing journey.

I love it. I'm hearing new things all the time.

I don't have a clue on how they made it. Would love to know if they would be able to produce this live.

The digital / download version is out on the Off Records label:

Check it out !!
