Most of us were introduced to the young, baby-faced Marsen Jules when his track "Où La Nostalgie Habite" appeared on Pop Ambient 2007, the yearly compilation series released by ambient/techno stalwart Kompakt Records. It's a high honor to make it onto a Kompakt compilation, and seeing a new artist on the label's roster is a rare occurrence, so we listened carefully. "Où La Nostalgie Habite" was pretty decent, with looped bells that shifted in and out of focus while vapor-trail ambience swirled around them. Like that song, Jules' full-length albums Herbstlaub (2005) and Golden (2007) were nice enough but didn't transcend the limitations of their instruments. Les Fleurs, which appeared in between those two records, somehow does exactly this, and the only explanation that I can conjecture as to how Jules hit such an Elysian peak before coming down again is some sort of divine intervention.

Combining Klimek's plucked acoustic guitars, Ulf Lohmann's luxuriant swaths of drone and the rich Romantic classicality of Susumu Yokota's Symbol, Les Fleurs is meant to appeal to the body--particularly the senses--as well as the soul. In this way, Les Fleurs is reminiscent of Wolfgang Voigt's legendary and much less overlooked Gas project, in that the music is processed in such a manner as to penetrate the skin and become a part of you. "La Digitale Pourpre" demonstrates how this phenomenon might happen to the person who's commandeering the instruments: It sounds like someone making love to his guitar, as he plucks a single note with swelling intensity, knocks repeatedly on the soundboard, caresses a broken string and places it all within an air-swept atmosphere like the lovers' breaths intertwined.

the album cover tells you everything--its artistic creative and crystal fresh. although the music isnt as pristine its a very relaxed ambient music with a slight suspenseful undertone or dramatic background. its great for sleeping or anything really. it blends into the background well and helps concentrate without getting in the way of your activities. good price also. im looking forward to more.

This album is amazing; it's waves upon waves of sound, skittering, clicking sounds and bassy reverberations from deep, like some sort of cozy ice cave. Stringed instruments are manipulated to a mix of half analog & half digital, with lulls of silence between sounds, like the rhythm of respiration. Most of the tracks are warm, though coquelicot, has a darker tone like a Biosphere track. Any fan of ambient would do well to check out 'Fleurs'.
