Album of the day: Le Galago - So High

Today, the French national day, nothing better than an interesting French duo. Their music doesn't recall, anyway, the French touch.
Le Galago is an indie-folk duo: singer's voice sometimes recalls Alice in Chains funereal prosody, especially when the guitars go steely and the gently strokes of the bruhses bring out angst and frustration. In several episodes catchy anthems remind U2 or Jeff Buckley moods, even if tainted with slight psychedelic noises and synths. This pretty long (40 minutes from 10 songs) work is a nice example of how well-chosen electronic effects and the right choice of atmospheres could transform a conventional (but not so bad) folk in a smart and pleasant product.
