(Automatic translation from a text written in french)

Change of scene with our second hidden treasure of the week,  The Humdrum Express new album, "Forward Defensive".

For more than 10 years, Ian Passey, the band's singer-songwriter, has been building a discography that is both deeply English and fiercely personal ... And this new album continues to dig this furrow, between social observation without concessions, sharp humour and infinite tenderness... Musically, there are no blinkers, Ian Passey's genius is to make various musical styles his own with a disconcerting ease ... He is undoubtedly one of the true and talented activists of English rock and it's about time France will give him a welcome worthy of his talent !

In any case, Le Village Pop will not give up !
