French Cassettes

The band French Cassettes – a group from San Francisco – makes music that vibrates with youthful uncertainty, overassertive one moment and bashful the next; in the downtempo numbers as in the more upbeat ones, these moods are all mixed up in a manner that’s very true to life. And the arrangements corresponding to them are full of interest in their own right.

Currently the group (these bandmates go by their first names: Scott, Mackenzie, Thomas, and Ben) is fundraising to help realise their next album – for which they’ve already written ten songs: their Facebook page has the details.
