The Geneva trio Massicot sounds as if it can barely keep its own energy under control.
The no-frills, bone-dry guitar sound oscillates between hypnotically repetitive passages and noisy outbursts.
The group’s songs are reduced to mere skeletons that burst with intensity.
Simone Aubert plays rhythm guitar with a manic energy,
drummer Colline Grosjean works her way from funk to krautrock to tropical beats and back
and, in addition to her work as a singer, Mara Krastina plays a charming, bright red mini-bass.
