Merchandise Invades Europe

If you haven't bothered to check out Merchandise yet I would advise you to do so post-haste. The band's gotten a little tame over the years, trading the perfect catastrophe of their first few ultra-noisy releases for a friendlier pop that bears more than a few comparisons to The Smiths and The Cure, but tame doesn't mean "bad": it just means that they're softer, more refined, more interested in elegance than lan. Doesn't mean they don't make some excellent music or that their newest album, After the End, isn't worth every second you'll spend listening to it.

Even the French agree (and don't we all know that France is the cultural capital of the world, ya'll?)! It's why the French television program Album de la Semaine (that's "Album of the Week" for all those of you what don't know their French) picked After the End for their, well, album of the week and brought the band over to promote. They even gave them a 20+ minute set to showcase their talent and a tad bit of their personal philosophy. It may not be as enjoyable as a live show, again it's too controlled, but there's no denying that this is a very pretty set.

Hear, and see, for yourself below! Do be warned that there's a fair bit of French involved in the introduction and the mid-point and no subtitles to make the gist clear but hey, the music speaks for itself.
