Oops. One record I totally overlooked from the last couple of months of '07 is the self-titled LP from unfortunately-monikered, fuzzed-out French garage throwbacks Sonic Chicken 4. Their label recommends the band's "ultra-primitive garage pop stompers" (their words) for fans of the Velvet Underground, girl groups, and Jacques Dutronc. Throw in the Monks, the Dirtbombs, and King Khan's various projects, and you're on the right track. Better late than never, i guess:
Sonic Chicken 4 sexiest
Sonic Chicken 4 shalalalalove
How about those female vocals on "shalalalalove?" Go on and download like half the rcrd at the band's myspace. Then buy the LP here, get the CD for free.
