France, 1974, avant-folk / experimental rock

Catherine Ribeiro + AlpesLe rat débile et l’homme des champs: Arguably the first ecological album, this recording immortalizes one of Ribeiro’s epic rants as the entire side B, a six-part descent into rage and mourning, accompanied by pounding timpani, the high whine of a drizzling violin, and some freaky, ominous organ work. Buckle up, boys: it’s another Ribeiro+Alpes classic.
