Path Through the Mist: 7 Homesongs

The side project of Lac Placide drummer Fournier, Path Through the Mist winds its way through dark progressive, ambient and tribal territory evoking plenty of mid-period Peter Gabriel, but with more of a Middle-Eastern, chant-worthy vibe. Although 7 Homesongs contains all-English lyrics, this mystical and often odd music boasts distinctly French overtones. In fact, I would swear 7 Homesongs is a Musea Records release. But alas, it is not.

In addition to drums and percussion, Fournier handles piano, keyboard programming and vocals. He's accompanied by two other musicians who add musical depth but sound underutilized particularly Nemo guitarist Jean-Pierre Louveton. Often quietly reflective, with occasional bursts of aggression and chaos, the album proves to be a challenging listen that teases by taking songs in multiple sonic directions that fail to follow particularly scenic or memorable routes (paths, if you will). The result is a disjointed and detached listening experience. There's a reason most drummers stick to their main gigs.
