Marseille Figs

http://www.marseillefigs.org/

A recommendation by BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow, I wanted to like the Marseille Figs. The opening chords of the first song I selected told me my faith was justified. Then the vocals kicked in…

My thumb-up remains for what is clearly a great musical act. But the squally, shaky, pretentiously-bad voice undoes all the strong performance. Man – if that guy’s the strongest singer in the group, maybe it’s time to become a four-piece.
