SS: Casbah Records is a label based in Valence, France. They recently dropped the LP Rot in the Sun from rowdy French punks OWEN TEMPLE QUARTET, resulting in a wild record that is strangely cohesive. As Rot in the Sun unfolds early on, it’s hard not to think of punk in the vein of Cult of Youth – think harsh and direct, but sparse with plenty of pent-up energy that’s unleashed in intelligently belligerent ways. In the end, it’s something I want to call medieval punk rock. Listen now » http://styrofoamdrone.com/2013/07/16/owen-temple-quartet-rot-in-the-sun/
