ART BRUT

UK's AB arrive on the heels of their third studio album release Art Brut vs Satan, which was recorded with Pixies' demigod Frank Black. Since forming in 2004, AB have garnered critical acclaim and considerable numbers of happy listeners bopping and chuckling to their simple pop punk riffs and clever lyrics, heavily ironic and even self-parodic. Witness a morsel they wrote five minutes after forming: 'I wanna be the boy/ The man that writes the song/ That makes Israel and Palestine/ Get along'. ('Formed a Band'). If postmodern art is characterised mainly by irony, pastiche, and playfulness, AB are its exemplars. Also playing, The Blood Arm. JH

Art Brut est un groupe de rock britannique formé en 2003 autour d'Eddie Argos (chant), Chris Chinchilla / Jasper Future (guitare), Freddy Feedback (basse), Ian Catskilkin (guitare et chœurs), Mikey B (batterie). Le nom du groupe fait référence à l'Art Brut, appellation utilisée par le peintre français Jean Dubuffet pour décrire l'art créé par des individus sans culture artistique, un art spontané, sans prétentions culturelles et sans démarche intellectuelle. Le groupe défend un art instinctif qui se moque des codes, proposant, avec talent, des titres arrogants, provocateurs, ambitieux et pleins d'humour. En première partie The Blood Arm.

Mon 25 May, 7.30pm, 22€. Nouveau Casino, 109 rue Oberkampf, 11th. M°Parmentier. 01.43.57.57.40.www.nouveaucasino.net

DEERHUNTER

Atlanta's experimental noise-rockers Deerhunter are as well-known for their live appearances as for their recorded sounds. Frontman Bradford Cox suffers from Marfan's syndrome, a genetic disorder that results in abnormally long and thin limbs. Cox's distinctive physique is further enhanced by his vocals, which have been likened to that of the Fall's Mark E. Smith and, in their experimental modes, to Yoko Ono.  Add to Cox's presence an often quasi-industrial guitar rhythm, sometimes complemented by whammy guitar interventions, other times altogether removed for a kind of slowed-down space rock ethos, and you have a trip-of-a-spectacle. Deerhunter's latest EP Rainwater Cassette Exchange is set to be released May 18 in the U.S. Also playing, Women. JH

Deerhunter est un groupe de rock expérimental formé à Atlanta en 2001. Le groupe est emmené par son leader Bradford Cox, chanteur-guitariste à la personnalité tourmentée qui l'a co-fondé ave Moses Archuleta (batterie, claviers). Il est également composé de Whitney Petty, Lockett Pundt (guitares) et Josh Fauver (basse). Leur premier album est inspiré du punk, du rock garage et du noise rock. Ils reviennent en 2007, multipliant l'étendue de leurs influences (ambient, shoegaze, dream pop ou post-punk), avec Crytograms, album psyché et expérimental et l'excellent 'EP Fluorescent Grey. Les albumsMicrocastle et Weird Eira Cont viennent ensuite compléter le mélange unique et personnel du groupe, qui promet de bonnes vibrations sur scène. En première partie : Women.

Tue 26 May, 7.30pm, 19.25€. Nouveau Casino, 109 rue Oberkampf, 11th. M°Parmentier. 01.43.57.57.40. www.nouveaucasino.net

COLD WAR KIDS

CWKs are a Fullerton, CA band who, a bit like their forebears Spoon and Modest Mouse, have built on 90s indie rock by incorporating elements of blues, funk, and alt.rap into a distinctive whole. On other songs their influences vary from Tom Waits to the White Stripes.  Since their emergence in 2004,  CWKs have been steadily increasing their buzz through virtuosic, energetic live performances and lead singer Nathan Willet's soulful voice and Bukowski-esque lyrics. There are few indie bands with such universal critical acclaim. JH

Entre leurs mains la pop devient rugueuse, le rock hybride, la soul écorchée et le blues fiévreux. C'est sur scène que le groupe dévoile l'étendue de son talent.

Wed 27 May, 28.50€, 7.30pm. La Cigale, 120 bd de Rochechouart, 18th. M°Pigalle. 01.49.25.81.75.www.lacigale.fr

SOCIAL DISTORTION

Social D was part of the foundational Orange County, LA punk scene back in 1978. Their original sound was described as ‘the punk Rolling Stones', and their style after 1983 became increasingly inflected by American roots, rockabilly and country, as did that of other LA punk acts X and The Gun Club. Thirty years later, after frontman Mike Ness's descent into heroin addiction and recovery, and founding guitarist Dennis Dannel's unexpected fatal brain aneurysm in 2000, Mike Ness bears the torch of one of the most influential, lyrically rugged but sonically melodic punk bands of all time. JH

Le groupe d'Orange County est né depuis presque trente ans sous l'impulsion du fantasque Mike Ness, âme du groupe à lui tout seul et unique membre originel. Incroyablement respecté à l'intérieur même de la scène rock, Social Distortion n'en reste pas moins sous-estimé par le grand public.

Mon 8 June , 28.60€, 7.30pm. Bataclan, 50 bd Voltaire, 11th. M°Oberkampf. 01.43.14.35.35.www.bataclan.fr
