The IN & OUTS a déjà été une découverte de la semaine sur le blogue. J’avais trouvé peu d’information sur le groupe, pour finalement tomber sur leur site web theinnouts.com. Je me rends compte que les gars ont de l’expérience dans le corps. Ils ont notamment joué avec Joseph Edgar. Originaire de Montréal, le groupe, composé de David Groover (voix et guitare), Alexandre Pépin (choeur et basse) et de François-Michel Beauchamp (choeur et drums), lancera leur nouvel album intitulé Zero Gravity le 26 avril prochain.
Zero Gravity est plus rock et un peu plus lourd que ce à quoi je m’attendais. La guitare joue toujours dans le tapis, du noise-rock, électrique, souvent agressif, avec tout de même des temps plus doux, histoire de reprendre son souffle, mais en général, ça reste énergique au maximum.
Les titres s’enchaînent, diaboliquement entraînant, mais dans l’ensemble le trio aurait gagné à rester un peu plus groovy, un peu peu plus jazzé. Parfois, le trip guitare-basse-batterie sonne trop simple. Ce n’est pas mauvais, mais on a l’impression d’écouter du punk-rock-garage. Avec There We Go et Up Against the Wall on saute sur les murs, ça se déchaîne. Les pistes W, 0 et 88 sont de bons interludes et donnent un peu de souffle entre les titres explosifs. L’album est ascendant, on peut se lasser de l’écouter, mais l’énergie est graduelle. Elle monte petit à petit pour se déchaîner avec un hit, la piste des pistes, le petit chef-d’oeuvre : Sleepy Sheep.
Looking back through the notes I took during The In & Outs’ Wednesday-night Canadian Music Week performance at Cherry Cola’s Rock N Rolla Cabaret – and, yes, I took notes – one of the beer-stained scribbles caught my eye: Seriously, how are they not tired?!
The three-piece band from Montreal constantly and consistently took the audience on a thrilling ride of fast, hard-hitting rock.
Case in point: ‘A Thin Mind’. David Groover’s wavy guitar screeched in time to Francois-Michael Beauchamp’s marching drums and trotting symbols, while Alex Pepin’s heavy bass threaded itself through the loud music to drive the track onward.
‘Zero Gravity’, meanwhile, provided listeners with a few more noise-rock elements: unpredictable guitar riffs paired with a swelling bass. Groover’s strong vocals and Beauchamp’s sure drum hits steadied the track and it grew and grew and grew.
The band, meanwhile, moved and moved and moved. The used up the entire stage – jumping around and energizing the crowd. Where does energy like that come from?! Even when The In & Outs slow it down, they’re still pleasantly fast-paced.
‘Sleeping Sheep’, a somewhat darker track, slowing down before speeding right back up. The song is heavier on the bass lines, and Groover’s vocals turn to a hefty pitch and the drums – oh, the drums – Beauchamp goes insane.
Here’s to hoping that The In & Outs never slow down.
Groover said the band is set to drop their second album sometime next month. For more on The In & Outs, visit: http://theinnouts.bandcamp.com/
Non, ce n’est pas un blogue de mode, mais The IN & OUTS est un groupe de rock!
Sur leur Bandcamp, ils se définissent comme jouant du blues, du classic rock, du punk, du reggae et du rockabilly. Pourtant, sur leur EP The In & Outs EP 2012 ça sonne plus comme du rock-punk rockabilly. Chanté en anglais, avec des rifts et un drums de malade The IN & OUTS joue dans le tapis et c’est bon! Pour leur premier album Ascending Back and Forth (2009), j’avoue que certaines passes sont plus groovy et ça sonne un peu jazzy.
Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’information sur leur page Facebook, mais un album semble s’en venir ainsi qu’un vidéoclip. Stay tune!
The latest flame to rise out of Montreal’s musical blaze, The In & Outs, a high voltage and electrifying rock trio, are proud to announce they will be performing at this year’s Canadian Music Week this coming March in Toronto, ON with show details to be announced at a later date.
“We are excited to perform during CMW in Toronto this year! This will be the perfect timing for us to promote our upcoming second album! Who knows, maybe we’ll release it there?” comments vocalist / guitarist David Groover.
High voltage, electrifying and relentless is not a reputation that is easily achieved but is definitely one that The In & Outs are willing to do anything to maintain and the band’s live shows are a testament to this fact. Igniting stages and captivating audiences across town in their two favorite cities, The In & Outs are on a mission and not to be missed.
The In & Outs recently shot their upcoming music video in support of the upcoming album and posted the following behind the scenes pics online.
In additional news, The In & Outs had the pleasure of playing the massive Festival Interceltique in Lorient, France last summer to a roaring, smashing reception, which was all caught on tape by a new die-hard fan.
The ten-day festival saw 4,500 musicians take to the stage with The In & Outs being one of the fest’s certain highlights, as can be seen in the just released 11-minute fan video that includes the band joining the crowd on the floor and the crowd joining the band on stage.
See the madness for yourself here.
Blending an expert mix of folk-guitar, funky-blues bass and reggae-jazz drums, The In & Outs‘ vast influence of diverse genres from Johnny Cash to The Doors, passing through Elvis Presley and John Spencer, amongst others can be heard on such tracks ‘Boo My God’, ‘Me, Myself and My Guitar’ and ‘Often On The Moon’ from the bands 2009 debut full length ‘Ascending Back And Forth’.
Truly unique, The In & Outs have demonstrated more than a profound love of music. They also reflect the ups and downs of life and the essence of a society which is expressed in its eclectic lyrical content. In their own way, The In & Outs amalgamate a biting and realist poesy that they transmit to their public in a stream of energy.
The band is currently in production of their second album, set to be launched in late fall 2012. Until then, fans can delight themselves with three dynamic songs for pay what you want download from their recent EP, available on http://theinnouts.bandcamp.com
The In & Outs are a band which may defy classification. They are an energetic and powerful force that has been recently tearing it up around Europe. The group, not content merely to tour and record a new full length album (due out this fall) decided they needed something else to do. With that in mind they dropped a three-track EP this summer and yours truly is lucky enough to have friends that will send such gems his way.
Being just three tracks with a total running time of less than ten minutes The In & Outs EP is more of a snack than a musical meal. Still, it’s spicy and full flavoured and…. …. and I really need to start writing these reviews after lunch.
A moment ago I said the Montreal group was hard to classify. They seem to be a little rock, a little alternative and they throw in just a hint of classic rebellion just to keep the listener guessing. The last song on the EP, “Sleepy Sheep” reminds me of John Lennon’s song “Imagine” so much I wondered if the late, great master had been cloned. But where Lennon’s song was soft and sweet and dreamy, “Sleepy Sheep” combines positive lyrics with sounds like a guitar and a drum kit got into a wrestling match and ended up having sex while falling down the stairs. Yeah, it’s as interesting and intense as it sounds, go listen to it!
Check out The In & Outs as they tease us with their bite-sized EP on Bancamp and be sure to check back later for their full length album, due out by the end of the year.
