Megrim - Families

Jigsaw
(PZL137: 708527180181/PZL137-3)
Release date: 02/16/2018
Genre: Indiepop



Last year, we reintroduced the world to Les Autres, an excellent French indie rock band from the '90s, via a compilation entitled "Backwards". Now, we're happy to present the debut album (after a couple self-released digital-only EPs) from Megrim, which is the new project of that older band's guitarist/vocalist, Olivier Doreille. Like Les Autres, comparisons can be drawn to early '90s contemporaries such as Lorelei and Hood, but Megrim's sound is a bit more fleshed out, at times reminding me a lot of early Death Cab For Cutie and Nada Surf. Their songs are sometimes driving, other times melancholic, but always interesting, making for a well-rounded and rewarding album to listen to.
