The French punk-garage-rock scene the past decade has seen some standout acts emerge such as Cheveu, Frustration, The Feeling of Love, Dimi Dero and more. Add the oddly-named SUBTLE TURNHIPS to this pile, as their fifth album – Redhair With Some – is proudly brought to you by Homeless.
The lack of hair on our Homeless head helped our hearing (try saying that rapidly 10 times) – not that we needed an aid to decide whether to release Redhair With Some – we’ve been a fan since hearing Terd Album (Hozac, 2010) and Meal (Pouet! Schallplatten, 2013) and immediately loved the rough cuts we were sent.
Recruiting recording ace Mikey Young to mix the album brought a fresh new set of ears to the Turnhips sound, and another instant fan, hell we even hear some Eddy Current Suppression Ring-style guitar work in “Eileen”.
For fans of Swell Maps, Desperate Bicycles and Pink Flag-era Wire.
Reviews of Redhair With Some
“In moments they draw comparison to the Country Teasers in terms of their ramshackle approach, but pointed towards the Swell Maps instead of narcotics, like they really want to be a different and quantitatively better band, but factors have come into play that have prevented this, so they are this, this sort of charmingly wasted mess of a band that scrawls and scrapes its way through a bunch of songs with intent if not purpose, sleazy poise in place of character.”
