The Possibility of a New Work for Aquaserge is the French avant-prog band's contribution to Crammed's long-running composer series Made to Measure, which has typically focused on music that could be used for other forms of media, including film, television, advertising, and performances. Earlier entries in the series included John Lurie's soundtracks for Jim Jarmusch's breakthrough films, as well as Yasuaki Shimizu's Music for Commercials and albums by Hector Zazou, Fred Frith, Harold Budd, and many others. On this album, Aquaserge pay tribute to Giacinto Scelsi, György Ligeti, Edgard Varèse, and Morton Feldman, through a mixture of original homages and interpretations of the 20th century composers' pieces. The results are distinctly Aquasergian, with some of the pieces radically altered to match the band's sensibilities, while others are more reverential to the original compositions. Varèse's "Un grand sommeil noir" is transformed from a solemn, operatic piece into more of a fractured chanson, segueing from a cool yet fractured rhythm to more weightless sections, joined together by the dual lead vocals of Audrey Ginestet and Julien Gasc. "1768°C," an original piece dedicated to Varèse, is more exciting, particularly the mesmerizing section near the middle for electric guitar, woodwinds, and bass, as well as the main rhythm that the group constantly returns to. The band's homages to Scelsi and Ligeti are extended drones, the Scelsi piece is tense and at times shrill, while "Nuit terrestre (à Gyorgy Ligeti)" is soft and glacial, fusing the entire ensemble into what sounds like a single instrument. By contrast, the much shorter "Nuit altérée (à Gyorgy Ligeti)" sets the tense horns and bells to an almost New Orleans-style drum rhythm. The Feldman pieces include two versions of "Only," a solo voice composition based on a Rainer Maria Wilke poem, as well as the freewheeling original "Comme des carrés de Feldman," a gleefully twisted noise rock improvisation based on a graphic score. Throughout the album, Aquaserge demonstrate how the pioneering techniques and ideas of the visionary composers can be adapted into contemporary avant-rock settings, and how they've influences the band's own approaches. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

America doesn't have a lock on all the off-kilter singer/songwriters. Take a listen to the very individual Argentine Juana Molina. On her second album, she explores electronic and acoustic textures, treading through them like rooms in an empty house while inspecting details and corners. She's equally comfortable with detuned synths (as on "Medlong") or acoustic guitar ("El Zorzal"), but whatever she uses, her music keeps taking the path less traveled. Her unusual, minimal touches transport lovely melodies into different dimensions. Molina is like a Latin Lisa Germano: both make small, intimate albums and think outside the box. But originality should be treasured, especially when it's wrapped in glistening little melodies. Molina can have an almost childlike simplicity at times in the way her voice glides between the blips and bloops, although her sensuality comes to the surface in other moments. She utilizes minimal arrangements and the production might sound more like work from home than the big recording studio, but this naïveté suits the songs. There's an irresistible charm about both this disc and Molina's approach. Even if you don't speak Spanish, you'll still be smiling. © Chris Nickson /TiVo

Congolese collective Kasai Allstars were introduced to the world through their inclusion on 2005's Congotronics 2 compilation, and their music has been remixed by numerous electronic producers, including RAMZi, Daedelus, and Shackleton. On the group's fourth album, Black Ants Always Fly Together, One Bangle Makes No Sound, they incorporate electronic beats and synths into their vibrant compositions, adding an extra dose of kinetic energy to their usual arrangements for guitars, percussion (including an instrument with a very distinctive spring-like thwang), and group harmonies. For the most part, the programmed beats mesh with the instruments and vocals without sounding forced. "Olooh, a War Dance for Peace" is fittingly easygoing, with comforting vocals and gentle guitars, yet the polyrhythmic drum patterns are more detailed than one might realize at first. "Musungu Elongo Paints His Face White to Scare Small Children" is a definite highlight, starting out with pumping dance beats, call and response vocals, and blazing guitars, then switching up to a faster, more jumping rhythm and sounding more electric and energized overall. The bright, festive "Baba Bende" is another prime example of the group's gift for arranging complex rhythms which are easily danceable. Drawn from myths and proverbs, the album's lyrics illustrate themes of unity and empowerment -- the group itself consists of members of five bands from the Kasai region, all originating from different ethnic groups with separate traditions and languages. As ever, the group's music finds common ground in varying styles and coheres into a singular whole, coming together with a purpose to uplift and celebrate. © Paul Simpson /TiVo
