Les Discrets is a shoegaze, post-rock, experimental, acoustic folk, dark metal project. It is the sole musical creation of Fursy Teyssier who also played in Amesoeurs and has created artwork for other bands including, Alcest, Amesoeurs, Arctic Plateau, Agalloch, Neun Welten, The American Dollar, …

Les Discrets is the musical approach of Fursy Teyssier’ s artistic research. Originally animated film director, Fursy tends to evoque the same in both music and animation/illustration: contemplative and esoteric atmospheres, feelings, fears and sensations related to our life and world. His paintings, music or lyrics are mostly about Nature, the feeling of Love and his fear of Death.

The debut release, an EP, was expected to be released by UK label Todestrieb Records but the deal is cancelled for another label.

The first album “Septembre et ses dernières pensées” is about to be released in early 2010 as the first of the 5 albums signed with germany based label Prophecy Productions.

This year they released a split with Alcest. I highly recommend this band for fans of Alcest, Agalloch, Amesoeurs, Lantlôs, Ethereal Beauty.

Such beautiful music i have never heard before!

"We carry death out of the village!"
gonna have to check this out if it's similar to Alcest.
Free your mind and your ass will follow
The kingdom of heaven is within
Open up your funky mind and you can fly

Yeah, it's really good stuff. It reminds me much more of Amesoeurs than anything else though
I can take a road that'll see me through.
Great find, Marskell. Song for Mountains is awesome.

That is the gayest genre description I have ever heard, and makes me want to avoid this band already.

$20 says it just sounds like a mix of folk and post rock.
Seriously? Must you always gay up my threads?
"We carry death out of the village!"
well i dont know french so i dont know what it means
"We carry death out of the village!"
It means "The Quiet Ones" or something to that effect (limited French knowledge here), and the music is actually kinda a post-rock and folk combo (maybe not so much the latter), but it has that Amesoeurs-y coldwave sound which is awesome. Have a listen.
I can take a road that'll see me through.
I need to check that out. I was going to buy it but spent all my money on the new Alcest... Has it leaked or officially released?

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

I liked the EP a ton more than the new album...

Both albums leaked like 2 weeks ago, the Alcestis album is ok but the Les discrete one is heaps better. Fuvking love it!!!!!
"We carry death out of the village!"
The new album is excellent. I've enjoyed it just as much if not more than Alcest's latest. Song for Mountains is so good.
Man, I wish Amesoeurs would just get a new album out.

Well, you probably know, but that's not going to happen.
While their full length was good it wasn't great. Rather unfortunate. Amesoeurs I mean.
I wouldn't rule out new Amesoeurs material, they could end up working together in the future. The main 3 members are working together in Alcest for live shows, the only member not working with any of the others being Audrey. Give it a few years, chances are they'll probably patch things up with her and give it another shot.
I'm really looking forward to the new album, been listening to the debut quite a bit lately and its really grown on me.
I also am looking forwards to the new album. Septembre et ses dernières Pensées was probably my second favourite album last year. And still get regular plays now.
Does anyone else have the Artbook edition?
Band needs more attention, full length is so damn good, stoked on new album.

It's a nice EP. Far too short on the Les Discrets half, and the theme from the Persuaders wasn't the most exciting piece of music to begin with. But other than that, I love it.
one of my favorite bands/overall movements right now. fursy is awesome and his artwork is great too. i love amesoeurs alot too. and just got back from Alcest concert last night hah. i think the mix on the Arctic Plateau(also AWESOME) split has really really improved since the debut album, i think the Les Discrets sophomore album is going to be even better.

btw, didnt i see a thread for them like a year ago when the album came out? i think i remember people posting their special artbooks and whatnot. maybe it was the alcest thread, the special editions of that were there too.
