As smokin’ as they are, previous releases from LES LULLIES were rushed through with impossible deadlines and little time to consider the ends. “Mauvaise Foi” – their new LP with a resolutely French title (and their first record almost fully sung in the tongue) – takes a more laid back approach to manifest the desired energy, finding the boys swimming in a sea of change from their usual methodology. The result is streamlined rock’n’roll with a new purpose: a stark contrast from yesterday’s news, while remaining truly Lullies. “Mauvaise Foi” sounds more personal and fleshy, dabbling in influences from Phil Spector to the Real Kids, classic punk from the Normandy scene (Fixed Up, Dogs, Sub Kids), and brimming with subtle, headphone-worthy layers and details.
“Mauvaise Foi” (“Bad Faith”) as a title sums up this full-length with accuracy. Sometimes tackling somber subjects with tongue planted firmly in cheek has no qualms breaking free to resonate with hilarity and their trademark cockiness like a brakeless derailing bullet train. Contained herein are stories about real-life characters sung by slightly mendacious rock’n’roll adventurers.
“Mauvaise Foi” was recorded at Château Vergogne between November 2021 and January 2022 by Maxime Smadja, who lent the band his deep, sonic knowledge, and applied his astute mastership.

Slovenly’s first ever split 7inch is finally here, a mere 250-some releases after kicking shit off back in the stone age of the 20th century, and this nasty platter is geared with an ungodly racket from two of our very favorite purveyors of supersonic catastrophe! From Venice, Italy, our squid ink pasta slurping pal who sometimes goes by the name WASTED PIDO when striking out on his own trash rock excursions, rounds up his wee crew DESTROY ALL GONDOLAS for their side “Death By Hamburger,” and we promise you it sounds as dumb as it sounds. Kobe, Japan youth gone mad GŪTARA KYŌ – the stars of our 200th release, the self-titled 10” with a big hole that shocked the world stupid in 2017 – are back with two tracks in which they attempt to destroy Destroy All Gondolas for the most epic clash of the titans since Godzilla versus Megalon. Which mob will emerge victorious? All we know for certain is without this record on your hi-fi, the only loser is YOU.
