Paris Suit Yourself - Sometimes - out on Big Dada



Paris Suit Yourself Sometimes
Paris Suit Yourself - Sometimes
(Digital single) Big Dada BDDNL176, 2011-04-04

Paris Suit Yourself return with the third single from their explosive, divisive debut album, My Main Shitstain. Sometimes represents possibly the closest the quartet will ever come to a 'straight up' pop single - elements of the Kinks slam up against sixties Motown (though maybe not as straightforwardly as that might make it sound!), Luvinsky Atche drops undertstated, high, clean, beautiful vocals, while Victor Tricard rips through a viciously tuneful guitar solo. It's all over almost before it's started, leaving you wanting a little more. Before you hit rewind, there's more to come. Micachu brings her own brand of speaker-blowing madness to the original on her M.A.T.H.E.S. remix, the kind of demented electronic stomp which has established her as one of the few truly original musicians working in London. M.E.S.H. (aka James Whipple) reconfigures the original into a bass-heavy, technoid-dub workout, all phasing pads and fast dancehall rhythms. Victor Tricard, meanwhile, puts down his guitar and takes the tune straight to the nearest rave, building from ambient malice to full on four-to-the-floor freakout (and in the process proving that this is not a band who take themselves too seriously, but just seriously enough).

Press Release :
Paris Suit Yourself return with the third single from their explosive, divisive debut album, "My Main Shitstain." "Sometimes" represents possibly the closest the quartet will ever come to a "straight up" pop single - elements of the Kinks slam up against sixties Motown (though maybe not as straightforwardly as that might make it sound!), Luvinsky Atche drops undertstated, high, clean, beautiful vocals, while Victor Tricard rips through a viciously tuneful guitar solo. It's all over almost before it's started, leaving you wanting a little more. Before you hit rewind, there's more to come.

Micachu brings her own brand of speaker-blowing madness to the original on her M.A.T.H.E.S. remix, the kind of demented electronic stomp which has established her as one of the few truly original musicians working in London. M.E.S.H. (aka James Whipple) reconfigures the original into a bass-heavy, technoid-dub workout, all phasing pads and fast dancehall rhythms. Victor Tricard, meanwhile, puts down his guitar and takes the tune straight to the nearest rave, building from ambient malice to full on four-to-the-floor freakout (and in the process proving that this is not a band who take themselves too seriously, but just seriously enough).

That's it - listen and enjoy. Oh, and if you cite Muse as one of your favourite bands and you've copped your haircut off Justin Bieber then you're probably not going to like this and your review won't be worth the toilet paper it's written on. Maybe your time would be better spent writing your college essay, child..? As for the rest of you, enjoy!

"Captain Beefheart, Fela Kuti, Adrian Sherwood and the Pop Group is the darkly disturbed, art-pop vibe here. Luvinsky Atche frankly frightens us - a good thing, obviously." - Time Out
"Frenetically dancefloor friendly, their party ain't for the timid. Paris Suit Yourself are fresh, fiery, top fun." 4/5 Mojo
"A gnarly collision of clattery garage rick and splattery free-jazz, their cheerfully ragged and profane debut hits the bullseye.' Uncut
"Utterly mad but utterly brilliant...' Music Week
"Brave, perverted and utterly compelling. Dare you invite 'My Main Shitstain' onto your stereo?" 5/5 ALBUM OF THE MONTH, Artrocker
"The din of 'God Show Me Magic!' era Super Furries and the broken interludes of Orleans blues... Dark, deluded and dangerously danceable.' 8/10 Clash
"I am in awe of it; I think it is good to be unsettled by things you admire. A triumph." Drowned in Sound
"An absolute stomper of an album and and incomparable outfit. This is a powerful, sure-to-be-influential album, certain to be hailed as one of 2011's best.' Notion
"If you can form any word other than 'wow' on the first listen, you're not paying proper attention." - CMU
"The sheer pleasure of making a great, grooving racket pours out of every bar they play. They have intensely memorable hooks, too, and parts that will haunt you for ages. The antidote to 'landfill indie,' this is modern rock as it was always supposed to sound." The Arts Desk
"Exudes a charm that's impossible to ignore." - ATM
"A wonderful din, weird but very cool.' 8/10, Tasty Fanzine
"Something approaching Four Tet with Yoko Ono, the cast of Sesame Street and Scott Walker... Darkly humorous stuff.' 24/7
