Sweetheart Sebastian

Sweetheart Sebastian (Paf! Disques)



Nothing beats French punk, or to quote their website, "new wave punk français." I was sold from the first note of this Quebecois garage-rock band's CD. Just under 25 minutes of hooky, jeans-and-t-shirts punk rock, the sludgy, lo-fi French vocals take a few listens to make out and then don't require much more than an elementary French class vocabulary to understand. Sweetheart Sebastian is packed with energetic, infectious pop punk. Though straddling a line between punk and cute, they manage to come off more punk than sweet. Fans of The Stolen Minks, Ramones and fellow Montrealers Les Breastfeeders, seek this out. Laura Kenins
