Cheveu

"This Parisian trio has been making scene noise, and for plenty good reason: their songs go a long way to carve out a real living end, so what you get is a neatly reductive sound universe, all patent recall and sass and open Gallic charm. Byron Coley calls them "devolved in a lopsided way," which is sort of spot-on. Cheveu excel at keeping things simple in the heat of an energetic rave-up. You sort of imagine these guys never breaking an honest sweat. Their songs roll out like a weird iteration of nature--all the rock tropes we thought we'd forgot, or lost interest in--made extant and coy, and attacked from within." [Cokemachineglow]

Almost missed the fact that Cheveu is in town from France! Catch them at Silent Barn tonight (7/17) and PS1 on Saturday. All dates and some videos below...
