Bocal 5: Musique Électronique LP

Bocal 5 are basically the band that became X-Ray Pop, so that tells you much of what you need to know about their sound. Early ’80s French minimal wave, kind of embryonic but still really charming and fun. Not really noisy or punk, sometimes there’s kind of a downtown art-funk tinge to the guitars. Drum machines are minimal and blippy but upbeat, vocals are playful and animated. There’s almost 20 songs, and most of them are two minutes or less, so their ideas never get a chance to wear themselves out. Yet another completely excellent release from Dark Entries.
