As strange as it may seem, the French have never had an "official" (ie: non-slang, in dictionaries) term for what we here in the States call a "French kiss." While obviously there are phrases meaning that in French ( baiser amoureux and baiser avec la langue ), a single word term for the act had never been added to the notoriously strict French dictionaries. The chosen term is " galocher " which has been a slang term for a while now. It comes from " la galoche ," meaning an ice skate (not your Hunter Wellies)- and is [...]
We love the bite and tail of these San Diego reptiles. The following is from their new one, Crimes of Passion, due to drop August 20 on Frenchkiss Records. Thanks to Kip Kouri at Tell All Your Friends for the headsup. And here's one we've been enjoying for awhile now. It's from their previous Frenchkiss excelente, Endless Flowers.

Le label Croque Macadam a été créé il y a deux ans par Alexandre, un des deux frères à l'origine du blog Requiem Pour Un Twister . Il est fidèle à l'esprit musical (pop rock garage guitares 60′s) défendu par ce dernier depuis ses débuts en 2007. Il en est à sa dixième référence et a rapidement acquis une dimension internationale en publiant des disques des grandioses Triptides (USA), des fulgurants French Kissing (UK) et des superbes Young Sinclairs (USA). Sinon, [...]

Words by Brendan It's (roughly) that time when we look back and analyze the past year, identify our favorite things. I say "roughly" because, well, some people do these kinds of things in December, but that seems premature. We took a little while, relaxed, let the feeling of 2012 pass through us, and now here we are. (Okay, we had a lot of work to catch up on, and were just a little lazy, too. What of it?) I [...]
There are several services out there that offer easy tour date management and aggregation for artists and managers, and we're big fans of them all (Songkick, BandsInTown and SuperGlued to name a few).

Looking at a September sunset that perfectly matches the cover of the Boy EP at the end of a high school football game, using a ladle as a microphone while unloading the dishwasher to “Can You Tell,” family-road-tripping with the windows down as we blast Gorilla Manor , surviving my first finals week of college by watching the La Blogotheque video of “ Who Knows, Who Cares ” about seven thousand times…Ra Ra Riot and Local Natives have in many ways formed the core of my life’s soundtrack for the past few years.

There's been a lot of talk about the decline in quality "indie" music since the grand output of 2009, but honestly we're not all that interested in that kind of talk... especially with Local Natives' Hummingbird LP on our minds. The Los Angeles-based band broke onto the scene in 2009 with the impressively cohesive Gorilla Manner and immediately garnered an impressive fan base via their oddly harmonic compositions. Four years later and the band is releasing their second album and based on a first listen, it sees the group striving for a more expansive sound. The first half of Hummingbird [...]

15.12.2012, Freitag, ca. 10:00 Uhr und es schneit ein wenig in unserem schönen Berlin. Aber das sollte unser Vorhaben nicht stoppen! French Kiss 2.0 , The Sexinvaders an den Decks und der Striezelmarkt - eine ideale Voraussetzung um Dresden anzusteuern. Selten genug, dass wir die Jungs mal begleiten, aber nun war es mal wieder so weit. Gute zwei Stunden Autofahrt und natürlich ohne Plan wo wir bleiben sollten! Der Klassiker!

Local Natives , one of our favourite purveyors of summer bliss, are back with a new video for "Breakers" , the first track to be released off their upcoming Gorilla Manor follow up, Hummingbird . continue reading >>
L.A. four-piece Local Natives are back with new music after extensive touring in support of their excellent 2010 debut, Gorilla Manor . "Breakers", off the band's upcoming sophomore effort, Hummingbird , maintains the underlying blanket of heaviness that marked the group's earlier work and adds light, jangly guitar riffs fit for the Dirty Projectors. The swaying starts-and-stops are almost trancelike as cold, overcast images play across the screen interspersed with video of the band playing on a darkened stage. As lead singer Taylor Rice's soft croon slithers through [...]

It's been way too long since we've heard any new material from Local Natives . The Los Angeles group become everyone's favorite it-band when it released their 2009 debut Gorilla Manor , and have been touring on the current of it ever since. A few months back news broke of the band working on new material, but it wasn't certain when we'd actually hear anything. Finally, today we finally can listen to the first new material from the band in nearly three years with "Breakers." The lush single is probably the first of many from the [...]
