Laure Boer covers “Kibetan Trance” by Katchaturian
Invited by the Lisbon-based band as a guest on this track, Wolfram Feuz gave it a barely contained ferocity. Blazing guitars foddered a suggestion of chaos further amplified by crashing sound effects. With this cover, Laure Boer does not go for subtleties. She nevertheless tidies the track up through the use of albeit still fiery guitars but they suggest a certain stability that anchors the body, giving it the means to daydream without hindrance. Intuitive and light-hearted, this cover of the German multi-instrumentalist manages to make your head spin but never lose balance. Whilst remaining within the confines of the original track, Laure Boer manages the incredible feat of making us forget its primary source.
