Here’s a glimpse of the new Aluk Todolo album ‘Archives Vol.1’

By on 2 March 2017

Aluk Todolo have released a collection of excerpts ‘Side B excerpt’ taken from their forthcoming album ‘Archives Vol.1’ to be released 20 March on Temple of Torturous. You can buy ‘Archives Vol.1’ here.

It’s fair to say that Aluk Todolo don’t play by the rules, in fact, we’re not totally sure whether they’re aware that there even are any rules. And that’s no bad thing; this French instrumental power trio have been doing things their own way for some time now, and it’s done them no harm.

So in keeping with the Aluk Todolo way of doing things, this video premiere is perhaps not what you might be expecting. It’s a visual vehicle for presenting an excerpt of music from their upcoming archival album release, but it’s not a music video as we might know it. And yet there’s something strangely captivating about it – before you know it, you’re sucked in and watching til the very end. And when it’s done you’re almost compelled to start all over and look for subliminal messages; what did you miss? Something or nothing, it’s hard to tell.

Aluk Todolo will be on tour through Europe with Oranssi Pazuzu in April, including a stop off at the legendary Roadburn Festival. The album will be out on March 20 – a Monday, not a Friday as is customary. Once again, Aluk Todolo are doing it on their terms, releasing Archives. Vol. 1 on the Spring equinox.
