Nearly unpronouncable, totally meaningless, but completely fun. I received this weird little French trio’s new album, Grötesk, as a promo yesterday and really didn’t expect much, honestly. Seriously dorky artwork – three geeky guys on the cover, very cheesy design work – and, you know, they’re French. Nothing seemed promising. I’m on my first listen now and nearly had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Think Zappa, think Steve Vai at his most light-hearted, think Mike Keneally. This is incredible. I need to listen to this a few more times before I say more, but I’ll at least leave you with something from YouTube:

If you like, there’s a lot more like that on the album and you can get that at Amazon. Their others are available overseas and for very fair prices here.
