The Madcaps from Rennes, in western France play fast-paced adolescent punk, held together with tight beats and wrapped up in fuzzy guitar, as well as some groovy mid tempo numbers with warm round bass lines having one sole and unique purpose which is to induce longitudinal motion in the listeners' hips. Above all, and thanks to the surplus of starry-eyed girls, they've also learnt to slip in some minor chords. Their tremolo-rich ballads, filled with vocal harmonies sweet enough to move a German bulldozer to tears, serve as perfect seduction material.
Having overjoyed France and the adjacent regions with their 45 ep last April, they returned in March 2015 with a full-blown album, unveiling a little more of their clear penchant for American garage, and 60s British Beat. To fans of Allah Las, Black Lips, Holy Golightly, King Tuff, The Kinks, Shannon and The Clams or Electric Prunes, you would be sorely wrong to abstain.
Kaviar Special are from the same place but play some heavier punk garage rock somewhere between power pop & Californian garage. They are both off hand and vicious, their guitars overdriven cut through the air, their rhythm section is tight and martial and you'll want to shout along their choruses as you spill beer on your neighbor. Their first record out on Howlin Banana & Azbin Records in 2014 is already sold out, but they'll strike back next summer with a 10" split with their Franco-Belgian friends Regal. This new record will show them digging a little further into their own brand of garage rock, even adding on some songs a slight touch of dark and hypnotizing psychedelia.
A voice for those who want and need to be heard, a stance above the crowd. An inclusive movement, philosophy, and driving force that four musicians have cultivated into an art form that expands the medium of music into something relative, real, and true, calling their audience to be outspoken; to live the life they choose.
Hard, authentic, edgy, disciplined… are some words used to describe the sound and focus of the band We Outspoken from Toronto, Canada. The year of 2008 brought together Anthony Mascarin (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Alex Mascarin (drums), Joe Manchisi (lead guitar/backup vocals), and Chris Andrews (bass), in hopes of creating their dream of playing in a band, not making music a pastime, but making it a career....
