"Hold Me Down" - Les Jupes by PlanetaryOnlinePR published on 2013/10/28 21:44:12 +0000 Les Jupes is hardworking, hard-touring, and devoted to this driving and deeply emotive music that has roots in British post-punk and American folk, anchored by frontman Mike P. Falk’s gritty baritone. The band’s debut album on Winnipeg label Head In the Sand, Modern Myths, garnered critical acclaim, charted on campus radio, and helped secure a deal with German label Instrument Village. Recorded with Imaginary Cities’ Rusty Matyas and The Weakerthans’ engineer Cam Loeppky, follow-up EP Negative Space is already turning heads. Les Jupes has criss-crossed North America and hit stages in Europe, including packed showcases at Reeperbahn, SXSW, NXNE, Sled Island, Pop Montreal, and more. Look for a new full-length with Montreal-based producer Marcus Paquin (The National, Stars, Little Scream, Local Natives), slated for 2014.
