    With the life we’ve been living lately, it’s easy to get lost in the Matrix. Without shows and real-life contact with the people in the scene, sometimes you feel like you’ve lost grip of the shore and you’re floating down the mainstream. That’s when you need something that feels pure, uncompromised.

    Maraudeur’s second album, Puissance 4, will help you find your grounding. Self-produced, self-released and self-made (check out that jacket and the list of people who contributed to it), the record’s joyful and urgent brand of danceable post-punk will put a big smile on your face.

    As soon as it starts spinning (at 45), the album jumps at you with tweaker energy, turning up the heartrate and coming at you from all angles: jittery drums, quick guitar-bass interplay, weird electronics, german vocals. After that, it’s like your first line of speed: either you’re in or you’re out, but you’re going to be up for a while so might as well dance, anything other that chewing your own teeth. By the start of side B, if everything goes according to plan, you’ll know this isn’t going to leave your turntable soon. The songs take counter-intuitive roads, a saxophone emerges, they stop abruptly and then resume their intoxicating pace, leaving you wanting more.

    Maraudeur’s sound will be familiar to anybody who’s ever listened to that brand of post-punk that borrowed no wave’s idea of cold, artificial sounds but injected it with the urge to dance and have a good time. At their best, though, on this album Maraudeur do it as well as, or better than, any of their contemporaries, successfully wiping the image of that awful Le Tigre comeback in 2016 from your memory.
