Geins't Naït is considered legendary at Offen Music. Releasing music since 1986, their last 3 albums have featured Laurent Petitgand. Vladimir Ivkovic’s Offen Music have the privilege of presenting Geins’t Naït & Laurent Petitgand’s possessed Gallic atmospheres to the uninitiated with ‘Make Dogs Sing'; a collection of 13 new, previously unreleased songs that plunge us into GN’s etheric otherworld ahead of a reissued classics, upcoming on Low Jack’s Editions Gravats  Through the looking glass of Geins’t Naït & Laurent Petitgand the world appears seductively psychedelic.

Taking in woozy waltzes and shimmering keys on the one hand, and a palette of pebbledashed electronics and mutant voices on the other, the group’s contemporary sound hints at some French analog to the film music of Wim Wenders or the eerier styles of mid-latter phase Coil, and works at a safer distance to the gnarled grooves of their cultish late ‘80s industrial releases, which are maybe better compared with Din A Testbild, Nurse With Wound or Throbbing Gristle

Judging from the sounds on Make Dogs Sing, Geins’t Naït have matured somewhat since their critical early phase. Rather than pranging drums and psychedelic electronics, they now apply similar principles of dislocated mixing trickery and groove-focussed methods to a breezier set of cues taken from film music and experimental ambient spectres, resulting a uniquely dissociative effect as the albums slips down the wormhole, back first, with any glimpses of light fading in front of you until their slowly ravishing, narcotic effect takes hold.  By the end of the album you won’t be able to find a way out. But don’t fret, the effect will come to pass, eventually. (Boomkat)
