REVIEW: MONSIEUR DELIRE (FR)

VISIT Finally, a new major work from Janek Schaefer... and his debut release on the much-trusted 12k label. Lay-by Lullaby is a follow-up of sorts to his sound installation Asleep at the Wheel. Sounds of cars passing by, soporific music drifting from the radio, Schaefer’s audio assemblage invites us to stop on the curb and take a nap (tiredness as the wheel kills, folks). A very quiet album that plays with ideas like kitsch, relaxation, and dreams in sophisticated ways.
