Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts has been unstoppable over the past three years. Since his debut album, Face À L’Est, on Montreal’s Musique Risquée label in 2007, the Montreal-born Berliner has released a steady stream of EPs, remixes and compilation tracks for Circus Company, Musique Risquée, Oslo, Cocoon and many more. Cannt have everything feat. dOP, the first single taken from the forthcoming album Breaking the fourth wall, was recorded in dOP’s studio in Paris, and in fine democratic style, they’ll feature their own version of the resulting track on their next album. Guillaume?s is a driving cut spiked with a deep and laid back jazz feel largely induced by the addition of live saxophone and rhodes (respectively played by Sébastien Arcand-Tourigny and Nicolas Boucher, two longtime collaborators). The 12?? features an extended mix of the tune for those who?ll want to slip this hot number into party time. On the flip side you?ll find Discothèque, a misty 6/8 Pink Floyedesque experience that introduces the listener to the deeper end of the spectrum presented on Breaking the Fourth Wall. Live saxophone, acoustic drum sequencing and live electric guitar (played by Gabriel Coutu Dumont, who also penned the album’s artwork) emerge alongside a stuborn synth line and transport the mind to soul searching vistas. Blurring the lines between sampling and composition, machines and acoustic instruments, the nightclub and the living room, this single opens the door for an even chunkier part to come : Breaking the Fourth Wall (coming out on May 3rd).
