In the last two years, Paul Régimbeau had put his Mondkopf project on the bench. Instead, he focused on his different collaborations (Autrenoir, Violent Magic Orchestra with Vampilla & Pete Swanson, Foudre!, Oiseaux-Tempêtes), which forced him to explore new aspects of playing electronic music like a band member.

After a year without composing under the Mondkopf alias, on November 13, the young producer sat down, set up a collection of machines, and started improvising and recording what would become They Fall, But You Don’t. Following that night, Régimbeau would regularly record live takes on his machines reflecting how he felt in the moment. While much of his previous work was the result of constant fine-tuning, the tracks on They Fall, But You Don’t represent the mood of one evening, evenings when Régimbeau would “surrender to the melancholy of the moment”—the album is a compilation of these moments from “a chaotic and dark year.”

The album dropped at the end of last month on In Paradisum—the label founded by Régimbeau and Guillaume Heuguet—and in support of the record, Régimbeau has offered up the beautifully pensive “Vivere, Parte IV” as today’s XLR8R download.
