2012 release. Cold Waters is the result of a very short yet intense meeting between Jean-Hervé Péron (Faust) and Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator). The duo met in the French countryside -- two days, two mics, two friends, and a dog... from hilarious to heart-striking, these "Songs from the Mill" flowed through them. Cold Waters, far from being an anecdotal side-note to their ongoing collaborative efforts in the legendary "krautrock" band Faust, reaffirms the duo's successful explorations as leading figures of avant-rock. Cold Waters combines the best of the early-'70s Faust sound with the freshness of today. This album is a mixture of joyful play, liquid psychedelia, pounding aural textures, delicate drones, and stormy meanderings that break into exalting voyages beyond the bucolic countryside in which it was recorded. Jean-Hervé Péron is one of the founders of Faust. Despite the now-historic split in the band, Faust, under Péron, continues to tour extensively, including 2012 US shows in collaboration with The CalArts Orchestra. Amaury Cambuzat founded Ulan Bator, a French experimental post-rock group whose 2000 album Ego:Echo was produced by Michael Gira (Swans). The duo have been working together since the early 2000s in Faust. Péron and Cambuzat both have side projects as Art-Errorist and Acid Cobra respectively. Presented in a full-color digipak.
