  1. It's broodingly impactful stuff, only hampered by the kind of self-parodically indie-kid vocals that remain in a permanent state of posturing ennui.

    Their debut album sounds pretty much exactly what you'd expect given their provenance: samples are cut and chopped, the bass judders with the insistence of dub, the vocals are drawled, electronically treated and incomprehensible, and the faint fug of weed paranoia hangs over it all.

    It's far from perfect - 'Ghost Note' sounds horribly like Skrillex in places - but there [are] enough interesting sonic detours to suggest that these agitators of sound are more than just another over-hyped gimmick band.

    Whatever Other People's Problems is trying to say is lost beneath the fact that it's so sonically muddled and abrasive, and lyrically imprecise.

The problem is that the band does not have the ability they wish they had... Lots of songs on this record are useless, bringing nothing to the listener. There are very little interesting things in the album and the band has no remarkable ideas.
    In the end, an album that you shouldn't listen or even download, because it is just a waste of time.

The whole, however is hard to accept because of the artist's vocal. Or rather, decent lack of it. Full Review »

    Breton arrive avec Other People's Problems qui est sans doute l'un des albums de ce début d'année. Inventif, ceBreton arrive avec Other People's Problems qui est sans doute l'un des albums de ce début d'année. Inventif, ce collectif l'est, mêlant rock, Hip Hop, electo, electronica (2 Years). On à l'impression de parfois entendre LCD Soundsystem, Foals, The Streets, Portishead mais non il s'agit bien ici de Breton. Féliciations à ce collectif. Full Review »
