Turzi – CPosted: July 26, 2015
Laconically titled “C” by the Versailles based multi-instrumentalist Romain Turzi is the conclusion of the conceptual series of albums, the previous being A (2007) and B (2009). Recorded in his Parisian studio, Turzi unveils a weedy, Technicolor-tinged cinematic psychedelia in the vein of Tara King th. or Halasan Bazar leaning somewhat into the more bombast, sci-fi mood of the early progressive rock symphonies with great vintage-styled female operatic vocals – that means more synths and less baroque, a revision of a dream of the French people conquering the space. When it comes to this kind of psychedelia, France is indeed la planeté sauvage. Recommended!
