CASSETTE REVIEW: Les Halles “World” (Peer Group Records)

                Les Halles has a quick introduction that says “hello world” and then the songs begin.  They’re instrumental and mostly ambient.   There are Oriental bells and kaleidoscope drone.   The first side ends on something between rockabilly and country guitar parts.

                Side B begins like it’s going to get 8bit and then it quickly cuts off.   There are light beats and weird little electronic parts that are kind of like seapunk but not.    Really though, these songs just seem either short or they just go by rather fast.

                I know that recently I made a case for instrumental electronic bands such as this to have these sort of fragments evolve into a full song in order to become better, but Les Halles seems to have this done in a manner which I didn’t think possible but am happy that it was able to come to fruition.   Other bands need to take notes and realize this is how it should be done.
