Here There Be Serpents (2013) is a molotov cocktail of poetry, blues and take-no-prisoners rock ‘n roll. ”Los Alamos” (2012), is a taut pop tune about escape, backed by “Annie, Queen of Belltown”, an acoustic waltz ballad, and available for free download. Physical copies of In Tongues (2011) come packaged in a book of poetry featuring the lyrics to the album.
In Tongues is an experience that doesn’t come along too often: an original approach to music and poetry in a single package. The band sounds like a combination of Chicago blues and smooth New Orleans drunk: the music is tight and it sways. The sound also serves as the perfect complement to Michael Crossley’s versatile drawl and sheer talent with word play. – Altrockchick
Here There Be Serpents is another original and compelling offering from French Letters that builds on the strengths in the debut album while expanding their sound field to include something in the neighborhood of garage-grunge-punk rock, with loud crunchy guitars and beat-the-shit-out-of-those-skins drumming coming to the fore. – Altrockchick
