Playfully mixing and deconstructing various genres to create its own sonic world, the seminal band hasn’t stopped changing shape and form throughout its existence (the only permanent member being its initiator, Crammed Discs boss Marc Hollander). Aksak Maboul now revolves around Hollander & Véronique Vincent. After a long gap, they’ve written & recorded a brand-new double LP, ‘Figures’ (out in 2020).
When Hollander founded Aksak Maboul in 1977 with Vincent Kenis, the band started exploring several directions later followed by the Crammed label (which was set up three years later). Each of the band’s four albums to date is stylistically different from the others, yet they all share common aesthetic and musical foundations.
