Bernard Fevre may have been largely inactive in the quarter-century between the little-heard initial release of his Black Devil opus Disco Club and its re-release and attendant critical plauditsbut he's certainly been making up for lost time since then. In the ensuing years, he's toured, cut a handful of remixes, issued a follow-up LP of uncertain provenance 28 Aftera remixed version of same In Duband another similarly styled album Eight Oh Eight of evidently new material, which was presented as the third and final item in the Black I Wanna Know Why - Aerosmith - Live Texxas Jam 78 (VHS) oeuvre.
Honoring that notion at least for the time being while still keeping the ball rolling, Soul Murder - Philip Braunstein - Soul Murder has now turned to his pre output -- several albums of electronic library music i. Neither a wholly new outing nor a straight reissue, this release is a curious amalgam: it contains about half of the tracks from 's The Strange World of Bernard Fevre -- two of which had surfaced more recently on the crate-trawling library music compilations Further Nuggets and Space Oddities -- all of them newly spruced up with richer, fuller production and extended a good minute or more past their original one- to two-minute snippet length.
The remaining half of the tracks are previously unreleased, though it's hard to know for sure whether they're wholly new or just salvaged from '70s scraps. It's certainly an unorthodox approach to constructing an album, but it's a sensible one for this material, which benefits from the expanded focus. The results are enjoyably old-fangled but not overbearingly so, making for an engaging, immersive experience and arguably a more rewarding one than the latter-day Black Devil efforts.
The sound palette is familiar -- nothing but deliciously musty analog synths -- but the emphasis is on mood-alteration rather than dancefloor incitement, spanning an emotional range from seedy to spacy to spooky and, of course, campy.
