The Music Digest
DJs Pat, Matt, and Margaret

Today we review BUM, the third LP from the French band Cheveu. The album, released February 6th by Born Bad, is a bit of a musical rollercoaster. The band takes everything with a grain of salt, adding a good dose of humor to an eclectic mix of different genres. Musically proficient, Cheveu offers a slew of surprises, great grooves, and a large collection of variations on rock, synth-punk, and more. This band is not to be categorized in any certain way; they’re definitely unique. Tune in for more.
