'...the combination of lo - fi organs, breathy vocalisations and murky field recordings are not easily compared to other artists...'Ephémérides' sounds like someone rewinding a church, while 'Exposition' is a reverberating, Casio beauty of a thing' - Electronic Sound UK on Passiflore
"Steeped, eminent, tangled, with its nuances dangling and dripping, Lunar Influence throws splotches of sound into outer space and lets them fall onto the surface of an exoplanet. We listen to it in the flow of some sort of semi-linguistic space: an architecture that beckons for a language to sprout from a tongue, yet that tongue does not move and cannot speak because it is not in a mouth." - Tiny Mix Tapes on Lunar Influence

Them There Records presents an essential vinyl edition of the highly accomplished debut album from Le Fruit Vert -‘Passiflore’.
Organ swells interact with angular tones and propulsive pulses throughout, as the duo cast intricate, vocal-led narratives that develop into a unique form of unearthly baroque-pop experimentalism. ‘Passiflore’ reflects two independent artists engaged in a dynamic synergy with a singular vision and a profound understanding of their craft. A meticulous debut that is perched on the threshold of psychedelic refrain and spectral hypnosis.
Originally released in 2013 on cassette via Montreal based label Los Discos Enfantasme . ‘Passiflore’ is an album steeped in sedate vocals, layered electronics and field recordings. Portrayed as the "priestesses of melancholy" Andrea-Jane Cornell and Marie-Douce St-Jacques have since released their follow up record ‘Paon Perdu’ through three:four records and recently toured Europe with labelmates Eric Chenaux and Eloïse Decazes.
‘Passiflore’ was recorded at home in Montreal, Canada between January and May 2013. The new edition has been remastered for vinyl at Grey Market Mastering by Harris Newman (Sourdure, Midget!)
released July 20, 2018
