This is the third release on Tigersushi for the ever-proteiform French artist Alice Daquet. Sir Alice walks the thin line intersecting completely different universes: fundamental research, musical creation and art. At 23, she already claims a long-running past as a teenage punkette -- from age 14 to 19 she ransacked as many café-concerts as possible with her crew. However, she is also a true experimentalist, via her scholarship at IRCAM where she tackles new technologies in music. Hers is a case of extreme post-post-punk artistic schizophrenia that has Daquet partake in an incredible array of art ventures ranging from multimedia to performance art via music and without her character losing even the slightest of her rage. Under the Sir Alice moniker, she develops an original musical project that effortlessly blends experimental music, electronics and punk. This new release is dark, scrawling, and pleasantly unsettling, as it mixes childlike melodies and Frenchified off-kilter nursery-rhymes with deep, disturbing electronics and tape manipulation. Signed to Tigersushi Records' roster she has already released an EP (1) and a mini album (2). She's featured on Nouvelle Vague's debut effort as well as on forthcoming releases courtesy of Patrick Pulsinger and Chicks on Speed. Sir Alice is one to watch, with a mixture of unease and glee.
