After a scritchy, squirming overture (both intro and portent to temperament), C’est ça pinwheel-flits into what could be the most bracing perma-grin gazer since Pinkshinyultrablast gave us “Ravestar Supreme.” But the honors here ought to go to the more trance-like material. “Discreet Channeling” in particular hits on that old soaring Constellation drama (with dueling howl/sing vocals here), but not without first bouncing you into a squeezed hyperspace somewhere between delirium and wonder, for most of the track. The vocal effect employed in this section is not dissimilar to that of Radwan Ghazi Moumneh’s in Jerusalem In My Heart.
