Montreal electronic experimentalist Marie Davidson is set to release her third solo LP, Un Autre Voyage (Another Journey), a work of compositional and sequential dexterity. Davidson has been tirelessly working at the centre of the city’s vibrant electronic underground as a long time member of Essaie Pas, Les Momies de Palerme, Hotel Monchrome and DKMD. Un Autre Voyage represents a departure of sorts for Davidson featuring as it does more upbeat almost pop elements amidst the machinist approach, witness ‘Exces de Vitesse’ and ‘Balade Aux USA’. Reflecting the album’s diversity is the spine-chilling alienation of ‘Kidnap You In The Desert’ and the oscillating opener ‘Boulevard Taschereau’ up against the cautious warmth of ‘Insomnie’. Final track ‘Perséphone’ features the vocals of husband and Essaie Pas bandmate Pierre Guerineau, who also assisted with production. Watch the video for ‘Balade Aux USA’ below. Un Autre Voyage is out April 14 on Holodeck. To grab her first two releases go here.
