Piercing Highs: Mondkopf's Favourite Albums
The Quietus , May 28th, 2015 12:44

Fittingly enough for a man who makes music of a decidedly bracing bent - be it the hulking techno of Mondkopf or the grindcore-inspired electronics of Extreme Precautions - French producer Paul Régimbeau's top 13 LPs are a suitably heavyweight suite. Brace yourself...


Jerusalem In My Heart - Mo7it Al-Mo7it
Fred [D. Oberland] from Oiseaux-Tempête gave me this the first time I met him. We had a great evening at his place smoking joints and drinking whisky, with Greg Buffier (from Saåad, also my guitarist on tour) and Grég Orio (As Human Pattern). It's this way I like to discover albums, when they pop up in a discussion, quite unexpectedly, when there's this drive to share them, outside of any newsfeed cycles. The best albums come to you in their own time. I have to say this record fits well with this 'let live let lose' idea; it's telling more about that than what I might be trying to say.
