The concept of this album by Steve Moore is intriguing: to propose a prophetic description of a possible future supercontintent configuration.
The streams of analog sounds and the harmonious clash of atmospheres give a potential example of cyclical formation and breakup of continents (and lifes, deaths) on earth.
By thus removing time as a reality in Nature, and by learning to think cyclically in the orderly rhythmic simplicity which Nature applies to all creating things, one will be greatly aided in his endeavor to see the universe as one whole. With full understanding of this pulsing heartbeat principle of interchange between the two opposites of electric expression, the expanding universe theory would never have been conceived.

What happens to touristic places at the end of holidays? What the ice-cream man, the lifeguard, the carny do in the rest of the year? It’s easy to imagine them melancholic and motionless in their empty shop, desert windy beach or ghost luna park.
The photo series Au pays des merveilles – Wonderland by Ariene De Palacio brings me back to these thoughts, reminding the atmospheres of Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot’s Holidays, but also Federico Fellini.
This is about nothingness, the none, that is the egyptian “Nun”, or the primeval waters waiting for the “Lotus Flower” (in this case, holidays) to break the “Egg of Creation”, giving birth to Life.
In this sense the world’s a stage. This is what we’re part of.
Police Des Moeurs is a synth pop band formed in Montreal in 2010. Members are Francis, Anouk, Fred and Cristine.
Their debut full-length, after some quicky old out singles, is permeated by a cold, melodic and nostalgic music for broken hearts and dark minds. PDM is the soundtrack for the nuclear night, a transition moment between the end of utopia and the final ecological disaster. The world after the future.
PDM main influences and interests are underground aestheticisms (1979-1981), industrial transformations and the process of electrification, norms and deviance, nuclear and environmental anxiety as well as paranoia, secret agents, spies and political extremists.2 hearts
