about

“a note
a voice, screams
a battery
sounds, grating noise, scratches
here it starts
Music, music
You who shudder
Who makes you dance, sing
Who moves the butt
and now begins Humming Dogs” - Florence Decourcelle, Humming Dogs

An absolute pleasure to present ‘Les Borigènes’ - the first LP from France’s Humming Dogs. Born from the radical ‘Oiseau Mouche’ (Bird-Fly Company) - a troupe of actors and comedians who focus on the theatre of gesture - Humming Dogs make joyful, avant rock music, which pooh poohs the po-faced in favour of a party.

Humming Dogs are made up of eight members - David Bausseron, Mathieu Breuvard, Florence Decourcelle, Thierry Dupont, Chantal Esso, Léa Le Bars, Florian Spiry, and Valérie Waroquier, who each write and create songs, swap instruments and sing collectively. Guitars, bass, drum kit, and keyboards mix with toy percussion, amplified pine cones, pot lids, iPads, a zither and an arsenal of effects. ‘Ha Ha Ha’ opens the record with the group dispersed and growling at one another, only to break out in infectious laughter, a free word riot and a thick bass melody. The traditional French song, ‘Karnaval’, gets totally sent by keyboards and a slung low guitar scrawl, egged on by the bands hooting and hollering. ‘Ça Me Gratte’ haunts and grates until it splits with a rising synthesizer and squeaking Bonios. The spitting, itching, near exhausted vocals from Chantel Esso are unlike much else we've heard.

‘Les Borigènes’ contains the self taught, simple charm of the Shaggs ‘Philosophy of the World’, performed in the spirit of village revelry and recorded and edited beautifully in the tradition of the GRM. Democratized experimentation, low ego rock’n’roll - Les Borigènes is a truly joyous, remarkable and wild record. It arrives in an edition of 500 140g black vinyl LPs, with artwork from London’s Submit to Love Studios and Taylor Silk.

Humming Dogs have performed at Sonic Protest, Cafe OTO, and Counterflows and are due to tour again in 2020. Anyone wishing to help organise a show should contact Abby Thomas (UK) on info@bisonrecords.co.uk, or David Bausseron (FR) davidbausseron@gmail.com.

"Wild, celebratory, as easy to pin down as an eel slathered in Nivea cream. I now count it easily to be among my favourite releases of 2019 so far, and one that I can well imagine being properly sought-after in years to come. there is nothing else quite like it." - Low Company.
