about

Montreal’s AIDS Wolf and SKiN GRAFT Records are proud to announce the first ever CD releases of two of the band’s most elusive LPs - originally issued by the legendary label Lovepump United (Genghis Tron, HEALTH, Child Abuse) - the “Very Friendly” remix album and the “Ma Vie Banale Avant-Garde” double LP.

----------------------------------------------------
AIDS WOLF “Ma Vie Banale Avant-Garde”
----------------------------------------------------
Recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA and originally
released in 2011 as a double LP, the corpus of songs found on AIDS Wolf’s final album were written over the course of a year as the band shifted from its more formal work to a sound focused on
polyrhythm and flowing, elastic tempos. On further listens, fields of
dissonant guitar and demented, lurching tempos, give way to pixelated pop forms - albeit with a detuned loner dinosaur in its spotlight.

Here, the starting point of AIDS Wolf’s compositional approach was to “learn its mistakes”, composing songs by studying improvised passages off blown out cassette tapes recorded on a trusty GE tape portable device. Aiming to dampen the repetition endemic in most music, the band added elements of chance and non-repetitive phrasing, evolving the songs organically for their final resting place. In this frame and to the very end, AIDS Wolf remained devoted to forwarding and refining their musical vision; seeking new challenges for themselves and their audience.

“AIDS Wolf’s monastic commitment to brutal prog-punk and strident no wave has hardened their music from a rough lump of coal into a jagged diamond.” - PITCHFORK
