Francis Plagne – The Refrain (Black Truffle, LP/digital)

It's been a while since Francis Plagne's last solo album. »The Refrain« consists of two long pieces, in the course of which the Australian musician uses everyday sounds to explore sonic abstraction. Textures and disparate sound events create exciting, tense combinations while in between, the Berlin-based sound artist crys cole can be heard on synthesizer. The result is wonderfully psychedelic. »The Refrain« is an equally modest and brilliant comeback after three years of radio silence.
