Hardly Art is definitely my favorite new label. They’ve only signed two bands so far, but I’ve deemed both worthy for a (semi)permanent place on my ipod. Their newest signee, Le Loup, has particularly caught my attention. I heard one of their tracks about a month ago, but only recently had a chance to sample their debut LP. Think Sufjan Stevens’ upbeat instrumentation, Animal Collective’s oddball vocals, and Grizzly Bear’s codein-folk, and you have a pretty decent idea of what Le Loup sound like. Of course, an mp3’s worth a thousand words, so here ya go.
