Okay, so a version of this song has been floating around for a bit, but now we’ve got this version and its accompanying, with the announcement that the song will appear on the new Le Superhomard LP! It’s a pulsating electro-leaning indiepop jam from the French outfit, with nods to their influences like Air and Stereolab. Plus, the brand new video seems perfectly with the star of the video being none other than a “paper girl,” along with other striking visuals. Meadow Lane Park will be released by Elefant Records on February 22nd, and hopefully it gets a great deal of much-deserved coverage.
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.
I can always count on Jigsaw Records to provide me with something delectable, and in this case that just happens to be French act Le SuperHomard. Our first listen to their new album Maple Key is a synth soaked bit of sunny pop, dusted lightly with a nice female vocal hook that floats about. There’s energetic pulse coming from the percussive section, so that adds a fortunate layer for listeners begging for a little sugar punch. This new full length will be released on September 22nd via the label…which you should browse for added pop fandom.
