New unreleased demos myspace page launched: http://www.myspace.com/tejaniriaz Buy @ CD Baby : www.cdbaby.com/cd/frenchsemester3 Buy @ iTunes : http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/forces-afield/id350969444 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Five friends from LA bonded by an insistence on analog grooves and live instrumentation for a new musical pop-art that's always changing. Raised on the baroque of late 60's folk acts like the Left Banke, macabre 80's dreampop of the Rain Parade, and the DIY 90's esprit de corps of Guided By Voices, the band has been hailed for forging its own path amidst a flood of garage, alt-country, and synth-rock repeaters. At the core is an almost obsessive songcraft by which guitarist/singer R.Tejani lays down the template for what are to become the group's instant classics: "we all are passerbys, thinking we all are bastards/ born in a village, faces with the city lights in them." The songs tell of dusty Third World goodbyes, and sanctuary in the human and urban landscapes of Europe and America. Forged from diverse experience in homelands afield such as Vietnam, India, and the Phillipines, the various members absorb and deliver these songs like carrier pigeons sent to remind you that 'we're not so different all of us'.

All the while, burying the hooks in a smooth, ear-pleasing live set that usually ends in a flurry of dancing bodies. The French Semester is Riaz Tejani, Gil Disloquez, Charles Maxey, Elaine Bagorio, and Russ Quintana. For inquiries please contact pianomanagement@live.com Read more on Last.fm.
