We Never Asked For This – French Mouth

We Never Asked For This is our short review of a band who showed up in our inbox unsolicited.

Paper Tiger, the debut EP of LA quartet French Mouth is a refreshing slice of late 90’s/early aughts style post-rock. At The Drive In is clearly a huge influence on the group, but they’ve traded in the chaos of ATDI for a tighter approach to songwriting and performance, which depending on what you’re looking for is either a plus or a minus. For a first outing though, this is a fantastic release and I look forward to seeing what they do next.
