Mafia Douce by French band Pendentif is the album I’ve been playing the most this summer. It’s released on September 24, which seems an odd date for a summer fresh album that this is, but then agan it is also excellent material for reminiscing about great summer days. Recent and from the past. Pendentif hail from Bordeaux, they were featured here before. ‘American beaches and chilly English winds’ are their main influences. So are Lio, Pavement and films by Jacques Rozier. The combination of Cindy Callède’s husky voice and the clear guitaristic needlework is highly charming. Jerricane (see video) is one of my favourite tracks, oh la la la.
