💿 Rare Drugs – “Interiors II”

The Rare Drugs collective are back with a brand new quarantine compilation just in time for your post-Valentine’s weekend. The record is called Interiors II, and it follows the exceptional Interiors I that was released last May. Just like its predecessor, this collection of songs does not disappoint.

What we love about these folks: they’re always doing something pretty damn cool and supporting the community in the process. All proceeds from this one are going to the Second Harvest Food Rescue.

📹 La Femme – “Foutre le Bordel”

If you’re not familiar with Parisian psych-pop outfit La Femme, you should be. After releasing three stellar songs in 2020, the band is back with a new single. Foutre le Bordel is a real upbeat number that hits in all the right places.

“‘Foutre le Bordel’ is the first fully animated video we’ve created,” says La Femme of the new single. “We have always been attracted by graphic arts. Originally we wanted to join art schools but none of them accepted us! Over the years, we have drawn lots of our visuals: artworks, t shirts, clothes, fonts, … The Paradigmes font of our next album is one of our drawings too, by the way. Last spring, during the first general lockdown, we thought it would be the best moment to start this animated drawings project, as we had so much free time in front of us. We think it reflects well the image of La Femme and we are happy we finally managed to do it with this particular fast and nervous track, which is made to revitalize a party at any moment! The kind of song that we look forward to playing on stage…! “

Check out the video in the embed, and hit up their socials for more going forward. The new album Paradigmes drops April 2nd via the band’s very own record label, Disque Pointu.
