The first single from Rural France’s second album is a fuzzy blast of ‘90s puff paint riffs, GBV succinct melodies, and Bill Fox home recorded charms. The band calls out trying to make their version of Pollard’s “Game of Pricks,” and while this might have a bit more clarity, the same heart spills out onto the sleeve for “Stolen Beer.” Self-Deprecating and packed with a kind of lost youth quality, the song channels memories of Teenage Fanclub and Fountains of Wayne through Tony Molina’s brevity, letting the taste of nostalgia linger in the brain before its wiped away by fizzing riffs. The album is out on October 29th on Meritorio Records.
