L’HOMME PUMA – l’homme puma – CD digipack

CD digipackcommunication is not words2006


L’Homme Puma plays vivid post rock with the main ingredients being epic parts à la Envy and a lot of pingly parts that remind me of a slowed down, more controlled Hot Cross when the math peaks. At a lot of times l’Homme Puma let the music speek for itself without too much vocals, but their music mostly meanders around the samples. There are a lot of moments on this self titled CD where it’s not sure what dominates the song: the sample or ‘l Homme Puma’s music. This somewhat experimental concept defenitaly creates a more emotional and dramatic atmosphere around Charles Manson’s babble, piano parts, presidential speeches, movie samples or movie music (e.g. I could recognize my favourite Kubrickfilm « Barry Lyndon », the old The Saint series etc). Although the music and samples complement eachother pretty well, I had the impression a lot of samples were thrown in at random. It didn’t become a concept album, although a first impresion might lead you to believe this.
It’s only when the raspy, shouted vocals come in when the band really shows they have a punk background. The vocals are cool and reminds me of some better known French emocore acts. Maybe not that much in music, but in a punky sort of French atmosphere. It is at those moments when ‘l Homme Puma breathes punk, nevertheless they make post rock
