The best kept secret in music


"REVIEW- Les Matins de Grands Soirs"

Les Breastfeeders are a Montreal garage-rock quintet that could show their American counterparts a thing or two about the inherent power of distortion. Les Matins de Grands Soirs (Blow the Fuse Records) can be roughly translated as “Mornings of Great Evenings,” and there is simply not a clunker in the entire batch of 14 cuts. Whether it’s the all-out assault of “Viens Avec Moi” or the more restrained and epic “Chanson Pour Destinée,” Les Breastfeeders succeed in channeling the best noise of the ‘60s (think 13th Floor Elevators or the Seeds) with a powerfully modern je ne sais quoi.

"REVIEW - Les Matins de Grands Soirs"

If albums could smoke, ‘Les Matins de Grands Soirs’ would be a smokestack in a world of skinny cigarette fashionistas. Instead of hiding behind smoke clouds, let me be clear: I really love this record- […] This will surely prove to be a significant release, elevating the sextet into some very combustible (and electrically charged) rock n’ roll company. To be honest for a second time in one single review, this makes me want to avoid bathing and arrive home at sunrise. […] Oh yeah, I love this record.

"REVIEW - Les Matins de Grands Soirs"

Qu’on se le dise: ce nouveau disque est infectueux. Funny Funiculaire, En dansant le Yah! et Tout va pour le mieux dans le pire des mondes sont de vraies bombes. […] Un pas de géant”

Feeling a bit camera shy


Déjeuner sur l'herbe, the first offense of Montreal’s rock outfit Les Breastfeeders, conquered both the public and the critic after its release in spring 2004, on the Blow The Fuse label. Since then, the six rock'n'rollers have travelled throughout Quebec for three years, to present their frenetic and contagious shows. Invited to perform at numerous festivals and events (SXSW, NXNE, Canadian Music Week, Francofolies de Montréal, Festival d'été de Québec...), the band also received the Prix Miroir de l’Artiste d’ici at the Festival d'été de Québec 2005 and their song "Angle Mort" was awarded the "Chanson primée" prize from SOCAN in 2003. Several songs from the album have topped radio charts across the country and two of their videos got heavy airplay on Musiqueplus. They’ve also flirted with the United States, where they played some fifteen dates, along with appearing on important free-form and college radio charts (WMBR, WFMU, KALX…).

In spring 2006, Les Breastfeeders were back full force with Les Matins de Grands Soirs. Recorded in Montreal at the Breakglass and Beatbox studios, by Ryan Battistuzi (Malajube, Yesterday’s Ring), the album serves justice to the band’s sound and energy.

Supported by Bonsound (management and booking), Blow The Fuse (label) and a stronger album, released in France in spring 2007 on the Boxson record label (Le Nombre, Prototypes) and in the United States, the band’s ready to invade the radio airwaves... Check them out at CMJ this fall!
