Psykokondriak also hails from Lille, and if I had a choice, I'd go watch these guys over the Red Devils anytime. This album is their debut but they have been around for a while. They played numerous gigs, recorded an ep, saw a drastic line-up change and changed their language from French to English. Now, they look ready to conquer the world of rapcore, blending hip-hop with rock music with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of energy.
It isn't difficult to make references to other bands, since rapcore rarely is a surprising genre. 'Introducing The Body Boys' sounds a bit like Beastie Boys while 'Psyko Waltz (vol 1)' brings on the guitars, drums and scratches. Other bands that come to mind include Rage Against The Machine, Senser, Primus & Dog Eat Dog. 'Workless Dance' also nudges towards the punk rock scene, adding the welcome amount of variation to the album.
Don't expect anything renewing on this album, but simply let yourself go on these infectious grooves, raps, slapping bass and riffs. Songs like 'Monstros Incorporantes', 'Think It Up' and 'Hot Day, Hotter Night' certainly go me dancing. So did the weird but joyful interlude 'Gunfight Helicopters' by the way. And they will make you dance too, hopefully anytime soon on a hot summer festival because the stage is exactly where this music belongs.
