A year after romping home in the 17th edition of Les Francouvertes; Moncton, New Brunswick’s finest Arcadian country-folk band, Les Hay Babies release their debut album, “Mon Homesick Heart”, this week, featuring a great selection of banjo twanging folk songs, interspersed with some retro cowpunk and beautiful slower ballads.

The single “Fil de telephone”, which is reminiscent of the cowpunk style of the short-lived Boothill Foot Tappers, was released last month and serves as a pretty good introduction to what is going to find it’s way into my best-of-list for sure!

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.

    Well, that’s a buy – thanks for the heads up. Elements of this song reminded me very strongly of Marie-Pierre Arthur’s “Elle”.
