Greg Davis and Sébastien Roux are back with their second collaborative album following the acclaimed release Paquet Surprise. Merveilles, translated from the French word as wonderland, describes the album very fitting as the songs have a very illustrative quality. Where the previous album relied a bit more on sweet melodies and quick changes Merveilles explores different sound worlds in depth and illuminates a terrain of diverse emotional scenarios. Silent passages of field recordings are combined with subtle harmonic layers, interrupted by sudden noise eruptions and contrasted by Folk-like guitar melodies and very concrete sounds, often leaving the listener wondering what the origin of this tone might be. It is a pleasure to have a documentary of this interesting collaboration in which both musicians are able to realize their grown individual expertise. Ahornfelder.
