why aren’t you listening to . . .
. . . The Shoes (@theshoesmusic)? Crack My Bones, The Shoes’ recently released album, is pretty much a winner from start to finish. The Shoes make uplifting electropop rock music that is deepened by its darker and more melancholy subjects and lyrics. This French duo pays just the right amount of homage to 80s new wave while still sounding original and fresh—think Hot Chip meets Broken Social Scene—and although they are currently only on tour in their homeland, we have a sneaking suspicion these guys will be hopping over to this part of the world for some must see shows. Keep you posted . . .
