shellac meets peregoyo

Last sunday at Haarlem Hout Festival I saw Pixvae from Lyon. What a surprise: think Steve Albini’s Shellac in a head-on collision with my alltime favourite Afro-Colombian avantpunkcurrulao outfit Peregoyo y su Combo Vacana (do check out Peregoyo’s brilliant, out of this world and the next 1972 Discos Fuentes release Tropicalisimo, lovingly reissued by World Circuit in 1989).
This French mathrocktrio (baritone saxophone, drums, guitar) with three Colombians (two singing and  shaking ladies and one singing conguero) blew me away completely – this is fresh, loud in an elegant way and totally rocking my soul. Pixvae goes where no man has gone before allright! Their first full album will be out somewhere in october on the French Budamusique label, their Ethio imprint I believe. Until then there’s only this bandcamp demo page, but do know that you’ll have to see this live to believe it.
