The band are very excited about the imminent release of their new album, their 9th, Deux Anges, on November 13th. As advance copies have made their way into the hands of radio and music journalist folks, kind words have been spilling in. A few below:
“Mysterious. Otherworldly. An emotional musical journey."
-Carson Street, KFJC (California)
"Thick dark atmospherics. Glistening guitars. Deep-under-water vocals."
-Dave Mandl (WFMU, The Wire Magazine, et al.)
“The announcement of a new Bipolar Explorer album is always, to us, a surprise as formidable as it is pleasant. Indeed, this project, which we’ve been loving for several years now, has never tried to do the same work twice, slow rock movements on which Summer, Sylvia and Michael lay their spontaneous inspirations. Drawing ideas from the realm of dreams, as well as the deeper, more refined confrontation with reality, through a softness full of wisdom and contemplation, Bipolar Explorer is a call for renaissance, a refusal of passivity, without any futile anger. An introduction to the inner and spiritual dream, the first excerpt, ”Santa Barbara”, with its hypersensitive contours, goes beyond our hopes and dreams, while found sounds from an indescribable place and the musicians’, pure and unique, meet. DEUX ANGES is released on November 13th.”
-Raphael Duprez, Punktum (France)
