The French Kicks - S/T
My Pal God Records
With the demise of We Regazzi last summer, My Pal God has found the band
to carry the torch. The French Kicks pick up the borderline-trashy,
70's rock stylings that I love so much. This four song ep is a great
primer for the full-length these guys are sure to release. Punky and
jarring with a very odd sense of melody, the French Kicks roll through
these songs with reckless abandon. While not quite as abrasive, and dare I
say cocky, as the aforementioned Regazzi, these guys trade some of the
sneer for slight pop hookery. I couln't agree more.
Venomous and rolling while still demanding another listen seems like the
perfect combination for me. While their name was relatively unknown to me
only a few days ago, now I can't stop telling people how good this is.
Even if I tend towards the wimpier side of indie-rock, this is a great
diversion and instantly likeable. I can't wait til the album comes out.
