Sylvain Chauveau´s first solo album “Le Livre Noir du Capitalisme” is an obvious inverted reference to Chinese communist leader Mao’s famous little red book, this album deserves attention: It stands as one of so-called post-rock’s most convincing achievements. Using melancholy melodies, light electronics, found sounds, viola and cello, piano, and accordion, Chauveau has encapsulated the full ethos of dreamy, cinematic post-rock music in his album. Tracks are short and ethereal, with evocative sound collages filling in whenever simple melodies take a pause.
