It’s a pleasure to tell you that Nouveaunoise will finally release their debut album Paraphrase Accolade in May this year. One of the last things I heard from them was their State mix nearly two years ago which is still superb.
The duo know how to produce deeply-arranged electronica with an emotional heart using crackled samples that eschews the cut and paste formula that comes with modern software methods. Rather like Four Tet, their songs feel like spliced moments of melodies intertwining around each other matched with nuanced beats and percussion. Very live-sounding.
Here are two tunes: One you may know from a while back ‘Cinnte’ and another ‘Goni’ which has some subtle backing vocals and warped acoustic guitar. Love it. Watch out for a tour closer to the album which will be supplemented by a live drummer.

Here’s their properly amazing Bonus Party remix:
