ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of the more exciting independent releases of the year...a veritable cult classic." -Under The Radar

"[Eux Autres] have created one of the most addictive indie-pop records of 2004. That this is the duo's first full album is scary, because these guys have crazy potential." -Delusions of Adequacy

"This interesting blend of French Pop and Garage Rock is extremely enjoyable thanks to the great harmonies and fantastic beats that are comparable to both Belle and Sebastian and Sleater-Kinney. Never dull and always cool, Eux Autres have struck gold with their first full-length release." -Erasing Clouds

"One of the best albums of the year." -Junkmail (Brazil)

"Hell Is Eux Autres turned out to be one of the most energetic, lighthearted and listenable albums I've heard all summer...Even their handclaps have sass! The prog rock and toy piano of "Partick Nil" and the time signature f***ery of "Carolina!" mark Eux Autres as a band worth keeping an eye on. "Wind and Windows" is one of the sweetest and most complex ballads I've heard in months, bringing to mind both Belle and Sebastian and Sleater-Kinney....Keep it coming." -Splendid E-Zine

"Hell is Eux Autres is that king of rough-at-the-edges-soft-in-the-middle indiepop records that stays with you for longer than you may have expected, and is indeed one of the most peculiar indiepop records of 2004." -Indiepop (Italy)

"[Eux Autres] back it all up with crisp guitar pop that incorporates every great trick short of the kitchen sink. Handclaps, call-and-response vocals, mad reverb - you name it. Hell isn't Eux Autres, heaven is." -75 or Less

"If Truffaut were still alive and remade "L'amour en Fuit," the bouncy pop of Portland duo Eux Autres would weigh in heavily on the soundtrack. It's a real brother-and-sister duo, with Nicholas Larimer playing jangly guitar and sis Heather on drums. Both let loose crisp summer-tone melodies on their debut album, "Hell Is Eux Autres." Handclaps are a given, and yes, much is in French. We have no idea what's being said half the time, but, hey, they still rule." -Willamette Week (Portland, Ore.)

"Their French influence is obvious in songs such as "Ecoutez Bien" and the rollicking closer, "Le Projet Citron," but the band's love for American indie rock is undeniable...Slower tracks such as "Wind & Windows" are perfection and display the power of Heather's voice. Music like this has been made for years, but as long as there are acts like Eux Autres around, it will continue to remain enjoyable." -Unfinished

"Hovering somewhere between a high-school French-class assignment and Thee Headcoats is the debut single from this Portland, Ore., duo....The brother sister team plays three chord garage pop that hangs on a raunchy guitar line and crisp production from Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Quasi)." -MAGNET Magazine


ABOUT THE BAND:

Eux Autres, the Omaha-born, Portland-based duo, channels sixties French pop and gives it a unique sensibility. The brother/sister duo, Heather and Nicholas Larimer, share lead vocals with Heather on drums and Nicholas on guitar.

The Larimers' music favors melody, with compelling vocals in call and response. These vocal textures are underscored by lyrics that manage to be clever without being precious, treating subjects that range from Spanish imperialism to romantic angst, French politics to soccer.

Eux Autres' debut LP, recorded by Jeff Stuart Saltzman and Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney/Quasi), is now available.

A stunning debut.
I listen to so much music these days that only rarely does something new make me prick up my ears, go "wow!" and reach for the CD player's 'continuous play' button. Eux Autres' debut full length album, however, had me drooling with pleasure right from the opening few bars. It's all too easy to play 'spot the influences' with music like this, but the truth is that Eux Autres have made something which is much greater than the sum of its parts, and which is so individual that even to think of influences becomes irrelevant. The only bad thing about Hell Is Eux Autres is that it's about 15 minutes too short.

Their influences are obvious yet they have a sound all their own. Eux Autres debut album, "Hell is Eux Autres" is a must have for anyone who likes Sixties garage, French Ye ye, and indiepop.

alex

love it
Great first album, songs that will make you wanna dance around and sing out loud.

Glasgow

Fantastic
Introduced to the bands website by a colleague and after listening to the four mp3’s decided to buy the album. Wasn’t disappointed and being a Partick Thistle supporter could even laugh at Partick nil.

vinnie

fun lo-fi goodness
do you like girl/boy vocals, loose, energetic lo-fi indie pop, some lyrics in french? then you'll love this. this charming debut will not change the way you look at music, make you give up eating meat, or cause you to stop picking your nose, but it will cause you to tap your foot, nod your head, and find another kind of boogie. there is some filler on the record, but tracks like "the other girls" and "partick nil" more than make up for it. all in all an enjoyable spin from start to finish.

Unfinished

Their Debut Full Length Does Not Disappoint
Comprised of Heather Larimer on drums/vocals and Nicholas Larimer on guitar/vocals, Hell Is Eux Autres is their debut full length, and it does not disappoint. Janet Weiss of Quasi & Sleater-Kinney is on board as producer and her production is just right -- not too loose and not too polished.
Eux Autres is described as a two-piece that channels 60's French pop. Their French influence is obvious in songs such as "Ecoutez Bien" and the rollicking closer, "Le Projet Citron," but the band's love for American indie rock is undeniable. Slower tracks such as "Wind & Windows" are perfection and display the power of Heather's voice. Music like this has been made for years, but as long as there are acts like Eux Autres around, it will continue to remain enjoyable.

Hell is Eux Autres good review
"Other Girls" was sent to me on a mixed CD from a friend. I enjoyed the song so much that within a week I had tracked down the CD. Hell is Eux Autres did not disappoint. It has an eclectic mix of styles- indie, French, sixties, rock- that appealed to my musical tastes. I can't wait for a follow up.
