CHEVREUIL | sounds | shows | website
Like a sexy bikini, CHEVREUIL are an alluring French two-piece. Julien F. works the bottom (drums), and Tony C. handles the top (guitar). Sleepyheads who mumble things like Hella or Lightning Bolt in their dreams will surely awake to find themselves sharing the bed with a completely different animal
The basic premise of the band is this: Using a setup that consists of no less than four different amplifiers, Tony uses multiple layers to construct dynamic, complex, and swirling riffs. At the same time, Julien's percussion cuts through the chaos, keeping all these silver balloons from flying off into space. The result is a set of songs that can be quirky and off-kilter, yet at the same time tight as hell, incorporating the modus operandi of tension/release, along the contours of a more melodic profile.
If one thinks of contemporaries like Hella or Don Caballero, with their technical prowess, as a thick juicy steak, then CHEVREUIL 's groove-oriented approach might come across as a fine slice of venison, just as meaty but perhaps a little more refined and exotic. Either way, it's enough to awaken those animal instincts, and set your mouth to water.
