SONG OF THE DAY TH da Freak – Slugs

Always keeping a close eye on what the French DIY garage-psych label, Howlin’ Banana Records are promoting or putting out, I’ve had the pleasure of discovering Slugs today!  Not the slithery, slow-moving type either I hasten to add, but the song-type, with an unusual and original sound.

Thoineau, aka TH da Freak, is a Bordeaux singer-songwriter who combines 90’s indie rock with the authenticity of lo-fi, garage-pop.  After several EP’s produced in 2014, TH da Freak released his first album The Freak on Flippin ‘Freaks, his collective in Bordeaux.  Influenced by the likes of Alex G, Pavement, R.Stevie Moore, Elliott Smith, Nirvana, Archers of Loaf and Ty Segall,  TH da Freak (songwriter, guitar, vocals) performs with band members Raf (guitar), Siz (bass) and Ben (drums).

Slugs appears on the band’s debut album and, if like me, you are enticed by its slightly warped sounding, grungy feel, then you’re bound to enjoy the whole album.  I particularly like the quirky feel and easy-listening vibe of Slugs, this song has definitely slithered its way into my head today.  Listen above.
