La Jungle | Ephemeral Feast
French blog Mowno.com is premiering today the new album by belgian kraut/noise duo La Jungle. "Ephemeral Feast", their fifth studio album, will be released worldwide this Friday June 10, 2022 via Australia label Stock Records and long time collaborators À Tant RÍver Du Roi (FR), Black Basset & Rockerill Records (BE).
Barely a year after Fall Off The Apex, La Jungle will release its fifth studio album on June 10, 2022. Ephemeral Feast will be out on the Australian label Stock Records, a new accomplice for this release, joining the various European labels that have accompanied the band for several years: Black Basset Records, À Tant Rêver du Roi and Rockerill Records. This new release will be available on CD, 2LP and digital formats.
Born in the heart of successive lockdowns, Ephemeral Feast is isolated from the bandís usual tours and parties and proves far-fetched from the promiscuity that the group usually likes to develop with its audience.
Jim and Roxie composed it in the spring of 2020 at Rockerill in Charleroi (Belgium), their only base during the weeks and months of the pandemic. Ten new titles - proving colder and clearly less festive than their usual output - are bundled here to create an atmosphere that can only be described as far from pleasant. This time La Jungle uses chilling sounds and leaves aside its dancing gimmicks to make space for the fears and anxieties transcen- ding its existence.
