music preview: DCTV at O’Brien’s Allston on Sunday, April 17

DCTV

French musician and singer Lola G met screenwriter/guitarist James Greer at a Hollywood party three years ago. They began talking about music and soon formed what would become  DCTV. Both Lola G. and James Greer are multi-instrumentalists. Lola G  sings in French on the duo’s latest album confusion moderne which is out now. The result is a combo of fuzzy garage band rock/ French pop/ 60s ephemera/ fuzzy arrangements. There’s even a cover of “L’Accord Parfait” from one of my favorite 90s bands Autour de Lucie.

should be a fabulous live show.

new music: Bur Gur; DCTV

Bur Gur “If I Was a Child”

Funky beat, existential messaging and video. Stand By Me-esque with a boy finding a dead body. Then it moves into hypnotic beats and psychedelic imagery. Waves, floating, atmospheric. Bür Gür is the Los Angeles-based tropical noise pop duo made up of Corbin Clarke and Makan Negahban. A new album– Have You Lost Your Faith In God [New Los Angeles]?—will be released on April 1, 2016.

DCTV, “Capital Ennui”

sounds like a melange of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Autour de Lucie, Stereolab and Shonen Knife. cranking post-punk guitar pop mixes with airy vocals. You will feel like you’re in a Godard or Michel Gondry film. Je parle francais mais il y avait longtemps. J’aime musique en francaise. edgy and cool. Shimmering fuzz with multi-instrumentation and enticing arrangements. although the vocals are in French the emotion bores through to your insides and melts you. The name DCTV comes from a Godard film Detective. DCTV is: French musician Lola G. and screenwriter/ guitarist James Greer. The duo’s new album, Confusione Moderne, comes out in April via Xemu and Lolipop Records.
