• th da freak The Hood (CD, £10.50)

    label: Howlin Banana Records

    Th Da Freak is the solo project of Thoineau Palis, a Bordeaux-based slacker obsessed by the masters of '90s rock (Nirvana, Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr) and avant-garde pop composers from that era (R. Stevie Moore, Alex G, Sparklehorse, early Beck). Faithful to the DIY aesthetic of his spiritual fathers, Thoineau records everything by himself, showing endless ingenuity in both composing and arranging catchy songs, drawing seamlessly from indie rock, dream pop, grunge, or garage rock.
