Say Like the French Say's thread title in the Self Promotion forum said, "RIYL: Motion City Soundtrack, Grizzly Bear." Who wouldn't be at least a little intrigued? I was, and so I clicked. From their two Myspace songs, I get the MCS comparison, especially in the vocals, which have a Justin Pierre-like expressiveness (and SLTFS also hail from Minneapolis). Musically, the moody noodling of "C'est La Vie" takes cues from '90s post-hardcore, while the sauntering strums of "F That" sound like a copycat of Sea Wolf's "You're a Wolf". It's an unusual combination of styles, but if these early mixes are any indication, these guys have what it takes to pull it off seamlessly. Be on the lookout for a full-length, which is currently in the works.
