There’s a store on Driggs Avenue in Greenpoint called French Style Furs. Evidently the members of the Cold War Kids and We Barbarians were so taken with it that they decided to christen their new band the same name. Their new LP is filled with poetic punk urgency elevating the sounds and stylings through session work with members of Tom Waits’s and David Lynch’s bands, as well as members of the Dirty Projectors. The LP, titled Is Exotic Bait, comes out on July 8th, and they’ll be playing a couple shows in New York around the release (the 7th at the Mercury Lounge, and the 9th at Rough Trade). In the meantime enjoy the video, directed by Silent Tapes!
