It seems that more and more each year the sphere of influence closes in, which moves the needle from Jesus and Mary Chain devotees to post-Animal Collective acolytes by the dozen. Sometimes however its an interesting fit when a band jumps off from a favorite, and though they probably aren't conscious of it Crash Normal feel like a new wave of post-Thee Oh Sees fervor. The Parisian duo has stripped away any sense of clutter, arming themselves with two guitars and a smattering of drums banging away in a frenzy and foam of reverb that recalls Dwyer's prolific group across their sonic journey from ramshackle pop to the full-bore force they've become over the last few years. The album is a fun chunk of French garage-fuzz and its easy to see how they've shared stages with everyone from Ty Segall to The Spits. Definitely one to set the volume knob on high and annoy your neighbors with.
