Fortune Map – The Skinny

Je Suis Animal – Fortune Map

Posted by Chris Buckle, Tue 07 Apr 2009


Listening to Je Suis Animal is like peering through Lewis Carroll’s looking-glass – things seem familiar, but something you can’t quite put your finger on doesn’t feel right, and you end up caught between enjoying the moment and nervously navigating alien terrain. This tension between the old (Fortune Map evokes any number of indie-pop pioneers) and the hypnotically new (at the same time, they sound like none of them) is the band’s great strength. And since this isn’t even the best track from their alchemic debut, you should forgo the single and follow the white rabbit straight to Self-Taught Magic From A Book.
