Hell Is Eux Autres

by Eux Autres

Eux Autres play smart, infectious garage-pop. If the Field Mice met Black Flag in a dark alley and teleported them to a Francoise Hardy show, the songs they’d be humming together on the drive home might sound something like Eux Autres.

Album Notes
“One of the more exciting independent releases of the year…a veritable cult classic.” -Under The Radar

“Hovering somewhere between a high-school French-class assignment and Thee Headcoats is the debut single from this Portland, Ore., duo….The brother sister team plays three chord garage pop that hangs on a raunchy guitar line and crisp production from Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Quasi).” -MAGNET Magazine

“Smart, infectious, jangly pop. The type of guitar sound that Mess And Noise calls limp-wristed (but not nastily)…I’m a sucker for a limp-wristed guitar, a boy in love with the first three Field Mice EPs and drums that might—or might not—once have belonged to a Shadow Morton group.” –Everett True

“[Eux Autres] have created one of the most addictive indie-pop records of 2004. That this is the duo’s first full album is scary, because these guys have crazy potential.” -Delusions of Adequacy

“8 out of 10. Simple but smart pop…very infectious. While all of the songs are highlights and could carry most albums, ‘Partick Nil’ is hard not to put on repeat. C’est tres good!” -Pop Matters

“Hell Is Eux Autres turned out to be one of the most energetic, lighthearted and listenable albums I’ve heard all summer. Even their handclaps have sass! The prog rock and toy piano of “Partick Nil” and the time signature f***ery of “Carolina!” mark Eux Autres as a band worth keeping an eye on. “Wind and Windows” is one of the sweetest and most complex ballads I’ve heard in months…Keep it coming.” -Splendid


Eux Autres write smart, infectious garage-pop that makes you feel as if you’re simultaneously cartwheeling down a beach, singing by the fire in a mountain cabin, blowing out the candles on a cake, and eavesdropping on the elusive neighbors. If the Field Mice met Black Flag in a dark alley and teleported them to a Francoise Hardy show, the songs they’d be humming together on the drive home might sound something like Eux Autres.

Eux Autres originally consisted of brother and sister Heather and Nicholas Larimer. Heather played drums, Nicholas played guitar, and they both sang. In 2008, Eux Autres added drummer Yoshi Nakamoto (The Aislers Set, Still Flyin’) in order to expand their sound and referee their fights.

Eux Autres’ debut 7″ was released in 2003, and their first full-length CD, Hell Is Eux Autres, recorded by Jeff Stuart Saltzman and Janet Weiss (Wild Flag/Sleater-Kinney), was self-released in 2004. The band’s second album, Cold City, was released in 2007 on HHBTM Records (Athens, GA). Three singles and an EP followed in 2008 and 2009. In November 2010 Eux Autres put out their third album, Broken Bow, which was recorded by Jason Quever (Papercuts), and followed by a west coast tour with Wild Flag and a three week tour of Europe. Quever returned to record the band’s latest release, Sun Is Sunk, which was released on February 28, 2012.

A stunning debut.
I listen to so much music these days that only rarely does something new make me prick up my ears, go "wow!" and reach for the CD player's 'continuous play' button. Eux Autres' debut full length album, however, had me drooling with pleasure right from the opening few bars. It's all too easy to play 'spot the influences' with music like this, but the truth is that Eux Autres have made something which is much greater than the sum of its parts, and which is so individual that even to think of influences becomes irrelevant. The only bad thing about Hell Is Eux Autres is that it's about 15 minutes too short.


Their influences are obvious yet they have a sound all their own. Eux Autres debut album, "Hell is Eux Autres" is a must have for anyone who likes Sixties garage, French Ye ye, and indiepop.


love it
Great first album, songs that will make you wanna dance around and sing out loud.


Introduced to the bands website by a colleague and after listening to the four mp3’s decided to buy the album. Wasn’t disappointed and being a Partick Thistle supporter could even laugh at Partick nil.


fun lo-fi goodness
do you like girl/boy vocals, loose, energetic lo-fi indie pop, some lyrics in french? then you'll love this. this charming debut will not change the way you look at music, make you give up eating meat, or cause you to stop picking your nose, but it will cause you to tap your foot, nod your head, and find another kind of boogie. there is some filler on the record, but tracks like "the other girls" and "partick nil" more than make up for it. all in all an enjoyable spin from start to finish.


Their Debut Full Length Does Not Disappoint
Comprised of Heather Larimer on drums/vocals and Nicholas Larimer on guitar/vocals, Hell Is Eux Autres is their debut full length, and it does not disappoint. Janet Weiss of Quasi & Sleater-Kinney is on board as producer and her production is just right -- not too loose and not too polished.
Eux Autres is described as a two-piece that channels 60's French pop. Their French influence is obvious in songs such as "Ecoutez Bien" and the rollicking closer, "Le Projet Citron," but the band's love for American indie rock is undeniable. Slower tracks such as "Wind & Windows" are perfection and display the power of Heather's voice. Music like this has been made for years, but as long as there are acts like Eux Autres around, it will continue to remain enjoyable.


Hell is Eux Autres good review
"Other Girls" was sent to me on a mixed CD from a friend. I enjoyed the song so much that within a week I had tracked down the CD. Hell is Eux Autres did not disappoint. It has an eclectic mix of styles- indie, French, sixties, rock- that appealed to my musical tastes. I can't wait for a follow up.
