Music Kills Me





RinÙÁÈrÙse first made waves in the US with their 1999 V2 debut Installation Sonore, though it was not until they hopped on board the Area:One tour that Americans really started taking notice. Creating an infectious blend of dance, rock and soul, and sporting a 9 piece live band, RinÙÁÈrÙse delighted audiences and baffled sound men. The band used their experience at Area:One to field test new material they had been working on and, well, the material passed with flying colors. In fact, those songs became the framework for RinÙÁÈrÙseís sophomore V2 effort, entitled Music Kills Me. The album is a hip-shaking, toe-tapping masterpiece that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to fellow Frenchmen Daft Punk and AIR. However, RinÙÁÈrÙse can bring the funk with a whole lot more stank than their aforementioned countrymen. With Music Kills Me, RinÙÁÈrÙse brings to life the raw energy and excitement of their sweaty, P-Funk-style live show, proving that while French people may not be the best figure-skating judges, they sure can make funky music.
