Muze PNote Young Lawyer is a scabrous blurt of post-punk energy, recalling the sound of French Kicks' N.Y.C. scenemates Les Savvy Fav. However, unlike their better-known compatriots, French Kicks go easy on the arty in-jokes, instead preferring to play short, taut songs without filler or excess arrangements. Young Lawyer is a breathless sprint from beginning to end, giving the band little room to sketch out complicated musical ideas or try out different moods. Though the record is certainly an energy boost for a few minutes, the reckless speed at which it's delivered doesn't give the listener much room to process what's going on. Instead, the EP goes by in an undistinguished, undiluted blur, never offering a steady foothold for an audience to grab onto. ~ Sam Eccleston

Artist Overview

They were never as trendy as the Strokes or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but nonetheless, New York City's French Kicks were a mainstay of the early 2000s Big Apple rock renaissance. Originally known for being the band with a singing drummer, the French Kicks underwent several line-up changes that led to drummer Nick Stumpf taking over traditional frontman duties. A certain coulda/shoulda tag always dogged the band, but one listen to their sharp, hip mod-pop is proof that the boys did just fine for themselves.
