My Internal Playground

Their name almost put us off listening to them. However, our source insisted that My Internal Playground were worth checking out. Once again, our source was correct.

My Internal PlaygroundApparently, they're a duo with names that even the Scissor Sisters would find suspicious: Jiim Burger and Kriis Mac 'otta. Yeah, right! But if that's what they name their group, you'd hardly expect them to come up with decent aliases either. We're not even sure they're from Paris. And there's no picture of him/her/it/them - only this bit of artwork (right).

But they make sunny '60s West Coast pop: they're obviously driving under the influence of Brian Wilson. But don't dismiss them as Justa Nudder Beach Boys Band. Those choons are charming and well-written in their own right.

(Our favourite is called 'Phantom And Desert': can these guys not name anything properly? For their children's sake, let's call a social worker right away.)

Check out a handful of those summery songs on My Internal Playground's MySpace page. No video, though.

Re: My Internal Playground

Kris, thanks for your mail. Sorry for being suspicious about your names! ('Jiim' and 'Kriis' spelt with two 'i's look like names from a junk e-mail, you see.)Anyway, great music, let me know if you're playing live in Paris sometime.
