Never in my life did I ever think I would become a fan of weirdo synthesizer music, yet here we are. Avenue Z is a French band that is predominately synth and trashy guitar-driven. If you are thinking of some unholy spawn of The Spits and Mind Spiders, you would be definitely on the right track. I am quickly becoming obsessed with this album. It is sung in French, but the lyric sheet is translated into English and Japanese. I love how the mood can switch up so quickly from track to track, from fuzz guitar spazz out to effects-laden groove trips and back again. I can’t get enough of this.
