Les Triaboliques – Exotic Phantastes


Afsaduni (I have been corrupted) 

Les Triaboliques are multi-instrumentalists Justin Adams, Lu Edmonds and Ben Mandelson. Rivermudtwilight comprises 11 exquisitely tracks that employs a battery of conventional and exotic instruments, multilingual vocals and a seamless merger of international influences. Includes a great version of the Animals’ “Don’t let me be misunderstood.”

rivermudtwilight, released (street date –September 8 2009), comprises 11 exquisitely rendered tracks—most composed by the British trio and produced by Rob Keyloch—that employ a battery of conventional and exotic instruments, multilingual vocals and a seamless merger of international influences. These diablos of dusk-core bear new distressed string band music for the 21st Century. The Desert, the Delta, the Steppes and the Underground—all are united in what Mandelson likes to call “Triabolique Twi-Fi.” The U.K. newspaper The Guardian has called Les Triaboliques “a pleasingly ragged supergroup,” but the musicians see themselves as like-minded seekers who, as Adams puts it, share “parallel musical lives.”

In summation, says Adams of rivermudtwilight, “I think it’s a record that couldn’t have been made by younger people. In the playing and singing you can feel the years of dusty bus rides, chaotic soundchecks, ecstatic concerts, mastery and confusion in roughly equal measures, a warts and all portrait of gnarly mavericks. Amen.” Amen, indeed
