On Saturday night, I went to see Hold Your Horses! in concert, and I had a very good time. I think they are among the best French bands. And if you listen to them, you can’t really tell they’re French. So far, they have a two-track CD-R, and they are recording an album. Try it if you like The Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade or Architecture in Helsinki.
With this record, I still think Top Montagne is one of the most original French bands. They use musical saw, melodica, toy piano, omnichord, sing in Italian, French, English, Russian, thus creating a unique feeling.
