Le Villejuif Underground – “Villejuif Underground”

After one of my favorite LPs of the year, Nathan Roche and his mottly band are back with a new single for France’s Born Bad records and in true fashion they extend their self-homage even further by writing a theme song for themselves and their namesake neighborhood. Full of roustabouts at best, the band paints the Paris neighborhood as a welcoming embrace for artists like themselves. The song’s rambling, untethered style fits the video well, a barrage of images smudged with a scattershot regard for cohesion. The song accompanies three others on a new EP out for the label and continues the band’s and Roche’s own seemingly charmed and chaotic existence.
