Yet another side project from a key member of Godspeed You Black Emperor! (guitarist Roger Tellier-Craig is the leader of this loosely constructed group), Fly Pan Am's first two albums sounded basically like demos and instrumental outtakes; they were often interesting, but usually terribly slight. N'Écoutez Pas, despite its self-deprecating Francophone title, is Fly Pan Am's first fully formed release, and it stands with the best work of Tellier-Craig's other band. Though at times the album's blend of found-sound tape manipulations, deadpan French vocals, wayward guitar freakouts, and droning, deliberately repetitive rhythms sounds like a collision between very early Stereolab and Sonic Youth at their most self-consciously avant, the album's two centerpiece tracks, "Autant Zig-Zag" and "Tres Tres 'Retro'," are masterpieces of tightly wound rhythms and seemingly impossible layers of processed, distorted, and lovingly screwed-with guitars. If My Bloody Valentine had gotten it together enough to record a follow-up to Loveless, it would have sounded like this.
The Most Fun Album To Bare
This is Fly Pan Am doing their usual thing, but it sounds like they're having a good time while at it. If you've never actually heard Fly Pan Am's music/noises, this is the one I'd suggest you'd start with. It's still what you'd expect from them, but without so many 5 minute long periods that are just silence occasionally interrupted by either unknown sounds or incoherent guitar for no more than 30 seconds long before going silent again. If you like GYBE, this is the lowest risk to find out if Fly Pan Am will be of any liking. By the way, the literal translation of the title N'Ecoutez Pas is Do Not Listen. This far out you're bound to be disappointed with some of the things you encounter. This album could be great for you, but your friends and family may not get it.
