Massicot – Louac

• “Louac” set to a picture of the housing album cover.

9.0 “Classic Post-Punk from Switzerland”

Opening track on their album “Morse” release in April 2015.

Wow, this is simply magnificent. They put me in mind of their old Swiss compadres, Kleenex, and the classic “Ü” single of ’79 certainly springs to mind. And available as a free download can you believe? Good heavens, what a gift. This is what Discogs have to say about Massicot:

The Geneva quartet MASSICOT sounds as if it can barely keep its own energy under control. The no-frills, bone-dry guitar sound oscillates between hypnotically repetitive passages and noisy outbursts. The quartet’s songs are reduced to mere skeletons that burst with intensity. Simone Aubert plays rhythm guitar with a manic energy; Lea Jaecklin coaxes sounds from her violin that have more to do with electronics than with a stringed instrument. Drummer Colline Grosjean works her way from Funk to Krautrock to tropical beats and back. And in addition to her work as a singer, Mara Krastina plays a charming, bright red mini-bass.

Heard on Kevin Robinson’s June 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.

Available as a FREE DOWNLOAD (!) at Bandcamp.
