Always one to champion the latest fuzzed-out pop group, I cannot help but talk up Je Suis Animal. Their songs boast the heavy guitar distortion and pointed percussion so rampant in some of today’s greatest artists, with a soft and smooth vocal styling not typically found in groups such as this. And that’s what makes them special.
Je Suis Animal comes from Oslo, Norway and “Fortune Map” is their latest video. The song is off their recent LP Self-Taught Magic From A Book (2008), available on Lost And Lonesome Recordings. “Fortune Map” is a bit surreal and at times even eerie thanks to the digital background and occasional odd camera placement, but it works well.
Also below, you’ll find “Painted In My Face” off Je Suis Animal’s 7″ single on Cloudberry Records.
