"Les Triaboliques are full of surprises, but the biggest of all is that it took this long to happen. rivermudtwilight, the breathtaking collaboration from multi-instrumentalists Ben Mandelson, Lu Edmonds and Justin Adams is the culmination of a decades-long, indefatigable quest by these voracious visionaries to absorb and utilize the planet's panoply of sound. Having exercised their skills individually within numerous diverse settings, it was perhaps inevitable that this 'meeting of the ancient guild of post-punk, Anglo, globetrotting string players reveling in idiosyncrasy,' as Adams describes it, would eventually come to fruition. The album comprises eleven exquisitely rendered tracks -- most composed by the British trio -- that employ a battery of conventional and exotic instruments, multilingual vocals and a seamless merger of international influences. These diablos of dusk-core offer new distressed string band music for the 21st Century. The Desert, the Delta, the Steppes and the Underground -- all are united in what Mandelson likes to call 'Triabolique Twi-Fi.'"
