Hump Day Treat, a la français Edition

I was perusing the reviews section of the recent issue of Bust magazine (with Diablo Cody on the cover), when I ran across a short, positive write-up on a new record from a French band called The Plastiscines. Intrigued, I youtubed them, and this live cover was the first thing I found. I just couldn't resist posting it:

We all know and love Nancy Sinatra's classic kiss off song, but what about the Plastiscines? What does their music sound like? According to Bust they "self-identify as garage rock." Judge for yourself:

The shout-spoken vocals, despite being in English, aren't entirely clear, but luckily the gritty, distorted guitars and tight rhythms speak for themselves. (Also helpful is that these women are fluent in the international language of Stylish.) So sweep on some thick eyeliner and waterproof mascara, tease up your hair, and get down with the unbearably cool Plastiscines on this thunder-y hump day!
