« There is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace... »

Opposed by the great Pope of liberalism Milton Friedman, "The genius of the crowd", a poem by Charles Bukowski reminds us to be vigilant against the speech from the dominant ideology.
The text read by Bukowski is separated into three parts set to music by Esther Burns.

The electronics are crossed guitars, old keyboards, piano and other mechanical sounds...

Incredibly topicality, the text and its author appear as the flower of the cover: worn and faded, but beautiful, powerful and timeless.

2012-05-07 | French review by "@ Le Zig"
MUSIQUE. The Genius of the Crowd. ESTHER BURNS. (Entropy Records). EP, 22 MN

Si l'électronique est plus présente dans The Genius of the Crowd, Esther Burns reste fidèle au style de son étrange et bel album La valeur du vide (2011). Le groupe passe avec un grand bonheur des sons grinçants et des larsen aux notes mélancoliques du piano, alternant les passages mélodieux et la stridence des guitares, la douceur et l'agressivité. Esther Burns est un groupe de contrastes, contraste entre les machines et les instruments classiques, entre avant-gardisme et nostalgie, contraste, dans cet album, entre le poème désenchanté de Charles Bukowski qui vient comme une réponse au discours presque cynique de l'un des papes de l' économie libérale, Milton Friedman. Encore une fois on est surpris de l'extraordinaire créativité de ce groupe qui trace son chemin en marge sans aucune concession et nous fait découvrir un monde, son monde, avec un immense talent et une cohérence qui forcent le respect. The Genius of the Crowd est le digne successeur de La valeur du vide, tout en étant peut-être plus abordable ... à moins qu'Esther Burns ait déjà su nous imposer son univers et son style!
Encore un album aussi beau qu 'inclassable.

Disponible en CDR 3" (au prix de 5 euros + port) et en téléchargement sur le site du label:

Nous nous permettons de vous conseiller le CD, édition limitée à 100 exemplaires, pour la beauté de l'objet. Entropy Records ne laisse décidément rien au hasard.
