Dig On Le Superhomard
I think I’ve fallen down a twee wormhole; I can’t stop spinning charming pop tune after tune. French outfit Le Superhomard are definitely where it’s at today, especially now that the band’s latest EP has dropped into the world. I can hear where Stereolab comparisons might come into play, with Julie Big’s huge voice working over these delicate electronic sounds; I do think that also minimizes the band’s songwriting prowess by casting them as copycats. Instead, listen to the subtle guitar strumming beneath the mix, washed over by space-aged keyboard notes and Big’s warmth. The Springtime EP just came out last week via Elefant Records, and it belongs with you wherever you collect your music.
