ABOUT THE RELEASE


Somewhere between late 60’s rock and sound art, ABACAXI has a heart full of candy and a skin made of spikes.

Formed by Julien Desprez, this brand new incarnation of the classic rock line up guitar/bass/drums presents an intense electric sound sculpture, carved by the rock idiom.

The trio, with Max Andrzejewski on drums/synth and Jean François Riffaud on bass, creates an highly energetic new music full of noisy brightness and sharp edges completed by a choreography of flashlights.

Abacaxi is one of the more exciting, genre-blurring and multisensory new ensembles around.
— Downbeat (USA)

Abacaxi music simultaneously invokes hendrix, webern, and video games. Desprez is the most dramatic figure to emerge in improvised music in decades.
— Musicworks (CA)

For sheer intensity and to rock cybernetically, not to mention pedal dancing prowess, Desprez and Abacaxi are a tough team to beat.
— Exclaim (CA)

Abacaxi balafre l’air de stridences électriques dont l’impact sur le public est encore accru par des rafales régulières de lumières stroboscopiques. Un total coup de foudre.
— Les Inrocks (FR)
