Hailing from Stamford, Connecticut, JACQUES LE COQUE play Replacements-style garage pop with a lot more youth and a very Velvet-y Underground warmth on the master mix. "... [JLC's] well-balanced, rough, raw, fuzzy rock n' roll. Bouncing from Built to Spill-style tracks, to surf rock and straight-up punk, these guys are the perfect house-party band. Listening to their songs, I can practically feel an elbow to the ribs and a PBR being spilled on my shoes.

”Their new 45 on Windian Records finds Jacques Le Coque at the top of their game. A-side “Tip of My Tongue” is uptempo punk counterbalancing the catchiness with needling string work and subtly integrating a thread of garage precedent, some swell ’77-ish leads and a sly false ending into the equation.“You Better Move” only intensifies this circumstance, blending in unabashed power pop gestures and more overt ‘60s melodicism through low-mixed vocal harmony and a splendid guitar solo. Destined to satisfy jangle poppers with an underlying itch for the Ramones, Jacques Le Coque delivers raw, infectious, and damn fine music in full.
