What if Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to the Head (2001) met Amon Duul II's Yeti (1970)? That's what a deep listening session of French band San Carol's second album suggests; it's nothing less than a punch in the face for exhausted indie fans bored by too much softness in pop music. Composed as an unexpected blend of FM tunes and krautrock, it's also a contemporary trip into madness, where the listener will discover a few guilty pleasures (the '80s, Bono as a synthpop icon, commercial radio, etc.) resurrected on songs like Venture, Le Graal ardent, and Oxyon 777, three hits bigger than whatever you've been listening to. Sweaty and groovy, Humain Trop Humain is an uninhibited album where you'll also meet Gary Numan, Bobby Gillespie, and James Murphy dancing like David Bowie with Mick Jagger in the unforgettable-but-forgotten '85 version of Dancing in the Street. Stadium krautrock for dummies.
