On their debut self titled release, San Francisco trio, French Miami mix sharp guitar driven indie rock and layers of synth, with complex start-stop rhythms. The result is a frenetic, explosive LP that will keep you on your toes from start to finish. The energy is supposed to carry over to the bands live sets, as members Jason Heiselmann and Roland Curtis each tackle two instruments, alternating between keyboards and guitar, that add to the chaos.
Highlights off their debut disc include the tracks, "Multi Caliber Rifles", "Science Fiction", "All On Fire", "S.F.O.", and possibly the albums finest and catchiest, "God Damn Best". The group recently came out with a new video for "God Damn Best", directed by Blake Wiers, that gets our nod for 'Video & Song of the Week' this week.
