Hell Is Eux Autres
Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 album from the Portland and Los Angeles-based garage-pop wizards. Eux Autres offer up a compact set of bouncy indie-pop featuring churning surf guitars, alternating male/female lead vocals, and sunny melodies contrasted with biting lyrics. Eux Autres write smart, infectious garage-pop that makes you feel as if you're simultaneously cartwheeling down a beach, singing by the fire in a mountain cabin, blowing out the candles on a cake, and eavesdropping on the elusive neighbors. If the Field Mice met Black Flag in a dark alley and teleported them to a Francoise Hardy show, the songs they'd be humming together on the drive home might sound something like Eux Autres.
