TÚlÚpopmusik - Angel Milk Review
by Morley Seaver

.
Fabrice Dumont, Stephan Haeri, and Christophe Hetier make up the core of TÚlÚpopmusik, a French trio that is known for their song "Just Breathe" which was used in a car commercial. They play a brand of acid jazz that have elements of other styles embedded in their DNA. The music is a floating, dream-like jazzy framework with electronica bits percolating in and around. They have special guest vocalists and all of them add perfectly to the sound and they blend together despite being different.

"Don't Look Back" is a gorgeous song that brings to mind clouds slowly passing in a summer sky. It features Angela McCluskey and her vocal is excellent, reminding one of Yma Sumac. It's a clipped voice that almost digitized. The pure voice of Deborah Anderson accents the next cut, Stop Running Away". It's jarring for a second to hear the male voice belong to Mau on "Anyway", who sounds a bit like the guy from the Montreal band "Sky".

Anderson contributes a seductive vocal on "Into Everything", which is excellent. McCluskey returns for the smoky jazz club feel of Love's Almighty" with a great big finish. The rapping in "Last Train to Wherever" seems a bit out of place on the record but it is still a good song. "Brighton Beach" features some simply pristine moments, some courtesy of McCluskey and others from the instrumentation at the end.

The only low point is at the end. The second last cut is called "Another Day" which is 5:35 of a line of spoken word intro followed by several minutes of ambient noises. Then nothing for several more minutes. We wait around for the last cut which is called "15 Minutes", a bizarre spoken word piece. Talking about ending on a bad note.

The rest of the record more than makes up for this blight, however. It's great to put on when you're driving early in the morning and perhaps nursing a hang-over.
