SONORHC-OUTRELANDE, LP, 1982, FRANCE




As promised, here's the second Sonorhc album, this one seamlessly fusing archival material from 1973 with 1982 recordings, the whole sounding about as exotically overripe as the cover imagery looks. Sundry ethnic tendencies have found their way into Sonorhc's acidic musical grammer since their debut and it makes for a rather more languid (if no less rich) listening experience, their aesthetic probably coming closer to the krautrock template than any other French music of the era and that's never more true than on Outrelande; Deuter, Between and Dzyan circa "Time Machine" at one time or another all coming to mind as I steep myself in their luxuriant somatic soundword.

So, Francophiles (or Eric), how do we pronounce this one? SONOR-HICK?

I would also like to know how to pronounce this group's name!

This is wonderful stuff... progxotica! The comparison to Agitation Free is quite apt. Excellent and hypnotic.

This is something I believe I would never have tripped over myself, so thanks a bunch.

anonymous & princess sparkle pony-I can only hazard a guess at it myself, as I know zilch about this crew. My pronunciation would be sewn-ork.
