Punks Are Fags - Laizen Cash

Punks Are Fags, the latest addition to Le Turc Mecanique’s roster, are a French duo known only to us as M. and G. They met in high school and, according to the label, “worked whenever they wanted, wherever they wanted, and in their own way.” That work ethic produced three of LTM’s earliest releases, and now they’re back with Laizen Cach, which Decoder is proud to present for your listening pleasure. “Phalene” is a twisted slice of electro-punk that is as ominous as it is catchy. The thick synths spar with half spoken/half sung vocals that are all the more mysterious in the band’s native tongue. On the b-side, “Turbine” falls a bit further into the void, with hypnotic percussion opening the track, ultimately being devoured by aggressive synths and grimy guitar screeches. The single runs less than ten minutes, but M. and G. inject a charmingly frantic energy into Laizen Cach, which makes for a very bizarre, raw, and fun listen. The single is available as a digital download, as well as a transparent 7″.
