Les Discrets have to be one of France's most beautiful acts and best kept secrets that started sparkling since the split with the rising force Alcest. Fursy Teyssier and Winterhalter of Amesoeurs fame, with the second one partaking in the drumming sector as a member of Alcest as well, complete the band along with Audrey Hadorn. So it's not the first time both of them work with Neige, in fact they are much closer than just a split and in my mind this makes those three acts a family, at least in sound matters.

A breath of fresh (and autumnal) air.

I love the cover art. I can't remember his/her name but they're great. Did the last Alcest one too I believe. I really liked this band's first EP, I don't think I've listened to this one very much, if at all.

Why have 2 singers if one does 90% of the singing?

I recall the girl does a huge part of the lyrics. That's not really a big reason but there you go...

I only heard her on 2 songs. But then I can't seem to focus on this album, so I might keep missing her.

Just like Les Voyages of Lame. This stuff is dull and boring, with only 2 enjoyable songs.

I don't hear any Black Metal in this, maybe minor bits and pieces of Post-Metal but it's a stretch. This just seems like a Shoegaze album through and through.

I'd say, this is mainly a post-rock album, it's just not obvious at first, because they have vocals and the songs are not 20 minutes long. But yes, the only reason this gets called blackgaze sometimes is that the band is heavily associated with the french blackgaze scene, but this has pretty much no black metal in it, or metal even.

How can someone say this album is not metal, or is "a post rock album" with a straight face.
