High Wolf (prolific French multi-instrumentalist Maxime Primault) debuted with
three cassettes: Supermodern Temple (Krayon, 2009), containing just two
lengthy collages (Aztec Fountain and Parallel Vision),
the Latin-themed Animal Totem (Not Not Fun, 2009), and especially
Gabon (Winged Sun, 2009), containing two more suites
(The Shepherds and Gates Of Gabon)
A witty dadaistic tone derails the fantasias for
psychedelic guitar, electronics and exotic percussion of
Incapulco (Segent Masscre, 2009) and
High Wolf (2010).
The more austere
Shangri L.A (Moamoo, 2010) contains Marlene Brazil, the two-part The Sheperds and an excerpt of Gates Of Gabon.
The ephemeral collages of
Ascension (Not Not Fun, 2010) suffer from a lack of focus, from an
inherently lightweight structure, although that very essence is what makes the
13-minute psychedelic raga Fire In My Bones so charming.
The more cacophonous, propulsive and ecstatic
Atlas Nation (Holy Mountain, 2011) seemed to confirm that everything
released before was just a diary of a musician experimenting with his own
talent, slowly understanding his mission in life and improving his skills
at the tools.
The 14-minute Haiti could be his more mature journey yet.
