" There exists another pop, a pop of the street level in this metaphorical city. A pop with a lineage in bedrooms.
We love this Pop. " - 20jazzfunkgreats, december 2011

" Chevalier Avant Garde deliver the utmost serious retro-futurist pop, edgy for reminding us we’re constantly nearing the advent of robot lust and digital mal de vivre" - Weird Canada, February 2012

Chevalier Avant Garde is Dimitri and Filip, a Montreal-based duo of European expats who share a love of low-light shadows and ancient ruins. Upon meeting each other in Montreal, Dimitri and Filip discovered their mutual affinity for aged mustards, pickles and Asiago cheese. They've been sharing groceries ever since. Between bouts of drinking and listening to mix CDs on the sound system of Dimitri's 2005 Suzuki, Heterotopias was conceived. The LP takes its title from the Foucaultian concept of "alternative spaces", areas existing only between "here" and "there". These are simultaneously illusory and real, familiar yet foreign, like a telephone call or a déjà vu. Heterotopias' 10 songs evolve from one such indeterminate juncture, a place where idealized declarations of love meet droning, dispassionate beats to convey both overt sentimentality and overwhelming apathy.
