The Norvins "Yoga With Mona" selected as "disque du moment" by Musiques Impures

"Two years after their nice debut with time Machine, parisian band The Norvins are finally back. Yoga With Mona features the same garage soul-punk ingredients than the previous album with the addition of special psychedelic flavor (a sithar intro on Better Of Dead), enhanced by the fantastic Kiryk Drewinski’s artcover. Track after track the energy flows through and never weakens. This poisonous Shiva-Mona is bloody efficient and catchy : a dirty organ, some haunted harmonica and the voice of the singer — which sounds like a hoarsely Paul Weller — makes this album a must-have in every garage fan music library."

"Yoga With Mona" by Hyperbolium on

Retro 60's garage from France, May 5, 2011

This review is from: Yoga With Mona (Audio CD)
For their second album (their debut was 2009's Time Machine), this French quintet continues to create garage and beat sounds that echo the R&B of the Animals and Small Faces and revivalists like the Miracle Workers, Fuzztones, Lyres and Chesterfield Kings. The driving bass, reverbed guitars, hard-blown harmonica and whining organ will be familiar to fans of the Nuggets/Pebbles/Boulders series, even without the scratchy patina of original 45s. You pretty much know what you're getting when there's a pentagonal Vox Phantom guitar pictured on the album sleeve and the band has the taste and knowledge to cover the Gentlemen's Texas punk classic "It's a Crying Shame." The Norvins make good their vintage equipment and give you the soundtrack for the hottest yoga session of the year. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]
