Les Chauds Lapins

Amourettes

(Barbes; US: 22 Mar 2011; UK: 22 Mar 2011)

Playful recreation of ‘30s and ‘40s French popular songs, adapted for ukulele, banjo, viola, cello, trumpet, and sung by two New Yorkers in American-accented French. The music is appealing to begin with—it’s jaunty, witty, cynical or romantic, with strong hooks—and the Chauds Lapins don’t ask it to change.
