2x12" version. 7 out of the 10 tracks from the CD, 5 of which are vinyl-only extended versions. Racing between the tangible warmth of the past and the thrilling unknown of the future, Guillaume Coutu Dumont comes flying back to impart his time-spanning gospel for a third album of subversive house music. This album is undoubtedly his, and yet there's a different kind of forward momentum at work here. It manifests itself in the primal beat and Eastern mysticism of the bass line in "Time Outta Joint," or the frantic swing and scatty keys of "Discotic Space Capsule." While the thump of the drums is a familiar trope for any lover of dance music, there are cosmic incantations being whispered in the synthesizers and sound effects. A strong force in this transcendental quality that permeates Twice Around the Sun is Guillaume's choice of collaborators. In particular, his co-conspirators in Guillaume Coutu Dumont & The Side Effects lend their band dynamic to three tracks on the album. You may recognize Dave Aju's soulful croon when it cuts through the mix, but then it's just as quickly shrouded in a vocoder. Likewise, Nicolas Boucher on keys, S├ębastien Arcand Tourigny on sax and Alexis Messier on guitar inject an otherworldly spirit into the heart of the kinetic machinations Elsewhere, you can hear the unmistakable seductions of dOP's Jo Illel aka JAW.
