French Horn Rebellion – Up All Night

 

Oh dear.  French Horn Rebellion have recently released a bit of a mediocre album. At best a bounce along bundle of happiness (listen to ‘Up All Night’ and ‘Brasilia Girl’) and at worst dry, plod-along retro electro (‘Broken Heart’ – what is that about?!) The somewhat indulgently titled ‘The Infinite Music Of French Horn Rebellion (Once Upon A Time)‘ is a bit of a disappointment. 

Whilst there are some moments of genius, in parts it smacks of try-hard and the ‘ironic’ geek chic 80’s thing wears thin in places.  Nevertheless, they are still the creators of the wickedly twee track ‘Up All Night’ – my pick of the album. A moment of brilliance, in a completely kitsch kind of way, have a listen to “The Good Stuff”…
