Free Ep

No secret that I love the French. Thanks in large part to a friend, I’d put the Prototypes album in last year’s top 5 albums by new artists. Described as

“joyful and hybrid music, sexily sung in French, mixing altogether the many influences of the band : from electro-pop, 60s rythms, folky guitars and sometimes a punk crunch to add to the equation!”

They’re similar to CSS because you may not know what they’re saying, but your feet know their meaning. Not all of the songs are in french, so don’t be put off. Give them a good 3 or 4 go rounds. Looks like they’ll be touring the states in March. maybe sxsw?

Minty Fresh‘s killer offerings of free mp3s include a Prototypes ep, with 4 of the 5 tracks previously unavailble in the States. This is only for a limited time, so get it here asap.

After you look at their really nice site, that’s mostly in french, be their friend and hear some more on myspace.

How lucky you’re to do not understand the lyrics, because they’re so… stupid 😦
I think that explain why they aren’t very loved in France. And for the info (not sure it’s correct to say info) the two guys had a band before Prototypes called Bosco.
