Ego - La Main Devant La Bouche CD
Debut album from this French quartet includes 13 accomplished songs (ten in English, three in French) combining multiple guitars with prominent keyboards and strings, excellent female harmonies, percussion and other superb instrumentation. Nearly a year in the making, the songs shine with smooth arrangements and lush orchestration similar to House of Love, the Church, or Tindersticks. Includes a new version of "What Am I Supposed To Do" from the band's 1998 debut 7" on Matinée, which acclaimed French magazine Les Inrockuptibles lauded for its "unreserved enthusiasm." The album has enjoyed numerous favorable reviews in French magazines including Magic, Les Inrockuptibles, and Midi Libre, and is available in deluxe
digipack with extensive linernotes.
