Brook no funny business


One of the albums of the year, easy. Paradis have delivered on the promise of all their early singles with a big album full of bright, catchy, fun-as-hell songs. This album has danceable hits (most of the songs), slow-burning sweet-gazing hand-holding ballads (Quand Tu Souris), and intense reflection (Miroir (Un), no pun intended). The closest relation to what Paradis do, I think, is probably something like mid-period Junior Boys, or maybe Phoenix at their absolute danciest, so if that sounds good then you’ll enjoy this a whole lot. It’s in French, which I can understand could be a stumbling block for some folks, but it’s enjoyable even if you don’t know a word of the language; and if you do know even a little bit of French, you can get into the lyrics and walk around singing “Un p’tit peu toi et moi,” or “c’est juste une idee, a considerer,” etc. The album doesn’t seem to be easily purchasable in digital form except through iTunes, though you can go through Discogs or elsewhere if you’re interested in grabbing the LP for the price of a good cut of meat. However you choose to do it, listen to the album, it’s good, you’ll like it.
