Live report: 17th January 2011, NITNEROC(FR) + MILK AND FRUIT JUICE(FR) at Pop In, Paris

Milk and Fruit Juice(FR) at Pop In, Paris
Two good French bands at Pop In: Nitneroc + Milk and Fruit Juice.

I love Pop In, but can we tell to Pop In to get better lights and not red and green, please?

Nitneroc(FR) at Pop In, Paris

Genre: electronic

9:20pm: around 50 people in the small room at Pop In. Their songs make you think of old video games themes. I enjoyed more their three last songs than the first ones. Good.

Milk and Fruit Juice(FR)
Genre: pop, minimalist

Members(from left to right on the last picture below):
The Mystery Man (Twitter / nice recipes blog) : percussion, tambourine, Nunchuk as drums (famous wireless video games controller)

Ah! I finally saw this band! I actually met some of the members a few times before, but I've never get the chance to see them all together in the same place. Fresh like... fruit juice! (#badwordplay) Joyful and sweet melodies, also melancholic ones. Songs played with ukulele, tambourine, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, glockenspiel, percussion, Nunchuk(yes). And soap bubbles. Listen to their last self-produced and self-released album called "I'm Cold Handed Cause I Have No Heart To Pump The Blood Through My Fingers" on their Bandcamp! You only can feel happy or have a big smile on your face when listening to them (really).
Favorite tracks: 'The Glance Game', 'This Thing We Don't Have To Name', 'Did You Figure Out?', 'The Perfect One', 'Things They Only Go'.
Check out the various projects of the members and follow them on Twitter when they have one, you won't regret it.
