Le Femme – Psycho Tropical Berlin (2013) review

Le Femme “Psycho Tropical Berlin” (Barclay Records, 2013)
This is a good year for psychedelic music coming out of
France. With bands like Wall Of Death and Aqua Nebula Oscillator we were
treated to some more straight forward psychedelic rock. Then we find ourselves
listening to Le Femmes amazing record Psycho Tropical Berlin. This band knows
how to channel the sounds of Frances past, immediately we hear the Serge
Gainsborg influence. Dig a little deeper and you will find surf rock blended
with the sounds of krautrock and the French 60s girl pop yé-yé. With a kaleidoscope
of sounds hitting you on every level you might find yourself thinking somebody
might of spiked the punch. Go With It! I don’t speak a single word of French
but I find myself wanting to learn every lyric to sing along. The closest bands
I can compare this to is possibly Stereolab or Broadcast(RIP Trish). Binge on
this record, you wont be disappointed!
