Episode Summary

Noisey Cheveu - VBS
Anyone who’s watched Jean-Paul Belmondo mimic Humphrey Bogart in Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless knows that the French have a thing for US culture. Parisian electropunks Cheveu are no exception, but the band fixates on kitsch rather than cool. Since coming together in the summer of 2003, the trio has routinely channeled the mundane into something charmingly surreal. “Charlie Sheen,” from Cheveu’s 2010 sophomore record 1000, zips from sing-songy to manic, pausing long enough for Lemoine to inquire, “What can I do for you, Charlie? Anything to go with your fries?” Along similar lines, the band’s pseudo-cover of “Ice Ice Baby” swaps out Vanilla Ice’s smooth cadences for driving dance-rock abandon.moreless
