Okay, keep your hairshirt on tearsis. Here's more French misery to keep those tears coming. This again is treading similar ground with those Trop Tard tapes. It definitely has a Joy Divisionish post-punk vibe (The lead track is called "La Chanson d'Ian," so they're not hiding anything here). But it also has that lo-fi Young Marble Giants stripped down thing too. Mellow and yet creepy. I know kids have lately been excavating this whole French minimal synth scene in the last few years, but this is my choice for the one to get.
