I caught Papier Tigre (who hail from Nantes, France) playing a festival set at Rancho Relaxo a few years back, and ever since I’ve been a big fan of their album The Beginning And End Of Now. That record came out in 2008, and aside from a split in 2010, they haven’t been releasing a ton of new music. Needless to say, I was excited to see a new track off their upcoming LP Recreation pop up on Facebook yesterday.
The new song — “Home Truth” — sounds a bit heavier than anything we’ve heard from Papier Tigre in the past, but their mathy precision and technical drumming show up here in full force. These guys are seriously bad-ass, so check out the stream above and go grab The Beginning And End Of Now as well. Recreation comes out March 1st, 2012 via Africantape & Murailles Music.
