to craft a mellow and meditative sound. Sidony Box wails with a guitar, sax and drums trio, bursting with urgencya blazing and obstreperous crew.
Even when the band drifts, as it does on the opening "Last Star," it does so with a certain intensity, conjuring images of a waning star emitting a cold, radiant electronic wave, on a drift through deep space, and announcing that Sidony Box is a conglomerate with an oddly metallic synchronicity. Many groups are praised for an organic approach; Sidony Box can be noted, in a positive light, for an inorganic sound. Elie Dalibert
"Tatooine" meanders with in an industrial ambiance before hitting a groove and cranking up to the high heat cooking level, flames blazing blue and threatening to burst out of control. The "TMNT," has a thrashing heavy metal rock feel, with doom just around the corner, while the title tune, on this set of all Sidony Box originals, takes the music into surreal, pastoral territory, a tune with a hopeful mood that leads into "Suedois," a tumultuous six minutes of heavy beats and squalling guitar and saxophone.
Sidony Box boasts a style that melds jazz, pop and hard, in-your-face rock, with unfettered electronics supplied by Adnot. The trio demonstrates plugged-in muscularity on "Wilson," shifting into a spare and eerie ambiance on "Leman" before closing out with hauntingly beautiful "Ultimate Pop Song."
